BAIC Conference

9-10th June 2022

Paper Sessions

We seek submissions of rigorous academic papers that have the potential for publication in top management journals and that are aligned with the themes of the assembly. Presenters will have the opportunity to receive feedback from leading scholars and participate in the assembly discussions. By submitting a paper, you commit to presenting it in person in Milan upon invitation. The invitation is personal and cannot be transferred to a coauthor.

Paper Submission Guidelines

We seek complete submissions (40 pages max, double-space, 12pt font, one-inch margins) of papers that demonstrate novelty, sound theory, and rigorous research design, with the potential of making important contributions to the study of innovation and cooperation. Submitted papers should include a title page with the paper’s title, listing all authors and their affiliations, specifying keywords, and an abstract of up to 125 words. No changes are allowed after submission.

Submitted papers should not be already published or accepted for publication at the time of submission. The papers can be empirical or conceptual, quantitative or qualitative, and rely on any method. When submitting your paper, please select the categories that best represent your paper. The papers will be arranged in sessions based on their fit with the other selected papers.

The deadline for submissions is February 27th 2022. Submissions selected for presentation will be notified by April 8th 2022. Presenters should plan for a 15-20 minute presentation to leave sufficient time for discussion.


SDA Bocconi will cover the lodging expenses of each presenter for two nights (or three nights for participants arriving with intercontinental flights) at the official assembly hotel.


The submission page for papers will be available starting January 12th 2022 on this website.
