For the academic programme there will be a screening procedure. Academic researchers are encouraged to send in papers in the fields of creativity and innovation. All papers should be based on empirical research and should meet the normal academic standards. The conference language will be English.

Although all kinds of research subjects are welcome, the EACI specially encourage contributions for the field of Creativity on:
- differences between individual versus group creativity;
- HRM-procedures which encourage creative behaviour;
- the creative climate;
- techniques which stimulates the implementation of creative results.

In the field of Innovation they encourage contributions on:
- measuring success;
- innovative climate;
- the “non-technical” aspects;
- the role of ICT;
- multi-disciplinary team work;
- portfolio issues, and
- the role of innovation in growth strategies of companies.

The EACI especially wants to encourage innovative research. So research projects with a new approach, applying new research methods and or testing out new theories are very welcome.

The academic procedure is to send in a two page A-4 abstract, as soon as possible. Each abstract should cover the aims of the research, the methods used, the results obtained, the limitations of the results and the conclusions reached. Each abstract should be accompanied by a separate short (100 words at maximum) biography of the lead author, including physical and e-mail addresses.
The review committee, which will execute a blind review, will not only look at the academic thoroughness of the research, based on the abstracts, but will also look at the even distribution of papers on creativity and papers on innovation. Of course new and daring research results are welcomed. After acceptance of the abstracts the authors are asked to write a full paper before the beginning of the conference. Only papers that will be available at the conference will be included in the conference proceedings book. The proceedings will be published after the conference.
