You are encouraged to submit relevant papers to the special themes as well as the joint session.

E-Business and the Cultural and Creative Industries

Finola Kerrigan and Feng Li

Following the success at BAM2008, this year we will once again organise a special joint session between the E-Business and E-Government Track and the Creative and Cultural Industries Track. We would like to invite papers which examine (but not limited to) the following issues:

  • The impact which technological changes and e-business have had upon the cultural and creative industries
  • How new technologies have changed creative work, introduced new financial models and changed how customers engage with creative and cultural industries.
  • The interplay between E-Business and the Creative and Cultural Industries are welcome as are papers from a wide range of methodological and theoretical perspectives.

Submitting Your Papers and Proposals

Both empirically and conceptually based full papers and developmental papers are welcome. We also invite proposals for Symposium and Workshops. Like previous years, selected papers will be published in a journal special issue and possibly also in an edited book.
