Overflow is defined as the EXCESS or SURPLUS difficult to be accommodated by an available space. We invite papers describing and analyzing ways individuals and organizations deal with overflows of various kinds – information, goods, tasks, people. The principal query is WHEN and WHERE the notion of overflow appears, and how is it dealt with in different contexts. Do seemingly diverse overflows have a similar dynamics? For whom is abundance a problem or a blessing? The ways of dealing with overflow could be divided into learning to live with it or learning to control it, depending on the frame chosen. Do attempts to deal with overflow generate new competences, routines, and new coping strategies – for organizations as well as individuals?
