The IASC encourages intellectual exchange on policy applications and commons issues through a number of activities.
Global, regional, and thematic IASC-conferences
The IASC supports local organizers in the organization of global, regional, or thematic conferences. The IASC-Secretariat takes care of logistics such as registration and conference fee payments, so the local organizers can focus on the content and local details of the conference. Global conferences are held every two years (2017: Utrecht, Netherlands
; 2019: Lima, Peru
), and attract 600-800 participants from all over the world.
Regional and thematic conferences (usually 2-3 days) are held in between the biennial conferences and are focused on a specific region (e.g. Africa, South-America, the Arctic), or on a specific theme (e.g. urban commons, knowledge commons) and attract about 150 participants.

The IASC also endorses smaller events, such as workshops, lectures, summer courses, etc., either via logistical or administrative support, or via endorsement as organizing partner.
