Deadline for submission of extended abstracts: 24 February 2013

This conference is seeking to build on the growing base of research to reflect on what has been learnt so far, to understand contemporary phenomena and speculate as to future directions.

At the 1st CADMC in 2011, over 50 papers were presented, with an international academic audience of 100 participants. 3 papers developed from the conference will soon be published in Creativity and Innovation Management Journal.

As in 2011, the conference will aim to support a high standard of academic research and facilitate critical discussion in an open and friendly atmosphere. At the 2013 conference, we aim to shorten the length of individual research presentations in order to increase the level of discussion, debate and interaction between presenters and the audience.
