Relevance of the topic

In 2004 an International Conference was held at the European Centre for Children's Products, Faculty of Business Administration, University of Poitiers, France. This conference hosted 200 participants representing researchers and practitioners as well as students. Due to the success of this first meeting, it was agreed to make this a biannual event. The Copenhagen Business School hosted the second conference in 2006, the Norwegian Centre for Child Research the third in 2008 and The Department of Child Studies at Linköping University in Sweden the fourth in 2010. So a conference in 2012 held at the Institute of Consumption, Behavior and Organizational Communication at the IULM University of Milan is carrying forward an emerging tradition. The papers deserve publication to a wider audience and YC is proposing to do just that, given the growing practitioner and academic interest in this field.

Submission deadline

The deadline for submitting papers is 31 March 2013
Final publication of the Special Issue is scheduled to be December 2013
