CALL FOR PAPERS
We invite colleagues from around the world with backgrounds in all three helices (academics, practitioners and policy makers) interested in the interaction between University, Government and Industry, to present a paper on issues related to the conference theme: economics of innovation, organizational sociology, regional policy, business & management, cognitive economics, finance, law & economics, industrial economics, scientific & technology policy, political science…
Any other contributions in line with the Triple Helix concept are welcome.
Two types of papers may be presented:

1) papers based on academic research, which may be either conceptual or empirical:

Conceptual papers should develop strong arguments and new theoretical perspectives on issues related to the Triple Helix concept (i.e. a comprehensive review, support or confrontation of the existing literature to develop a new theoretical perspective).

Empirical papers should instead have a short and focused literature review to develop the research hypotheses, explain the methodology, present the data and their analysis, draw appropriate conclusions and discuss the theoretical and practical implications of the findings.

2) papers based on policy practices or practitioner’s reflections

These papers should contain a brief narrative section describing the policy or practice presented and explaining its purpose and objective. The presentation section should elaborate on the different issues involved in the implementation of the innovation in question and/or present a case study. The conclusion should contain recommended solutions and/or the outcomes of the study in question.

The review and selection the International Scientific Committee’s referees will be made on extended abstracts (1500 words or 3 full pages) and will be based on the quality and relevance of the paper. The deadline for submission is 1st November 2004.

Full papers must be submitted by 18 April 2005 (though it may be sent together with the extended abstract) and should not exceed 7000 words. They should allow 20 minutes for presentation and up to 5 minutes for discussion.

Young researchers and Ph.D students, particularly from transitional and developing countries are encouraged to participate. Grants are available upon request depending on resources available.

PLEASE NOTE:
Since we have received many more abstracts than expected, the abstract review will take a little longer than anticipated. Participants will be notified shortly after mid December.

All submissions (in PDF or MS Word format) should be sent to Paola Caretta or Rocio Ribelles Zorita at: organization@triplehelix5.com
