The MIC Conference 2022 aims to provide a global and multidisciplinary forum for presenting and discussing a comprehensive, current view of the main areas of research in creativity studies.

The MIC Conference 2022 is organised along the 7 C’s perspective which refers to the following topics:

1- Creators (cognitive and conative profiles of creative persons)
2- Creating (creative thinking process)
3- Cooperation (small group and larger community interaction in creative work)
4- Context (psychological and socio-cultural creative environments)
5- Creations (characteristics of the production)
6- Consumption (adoption of creative work in the marketplace)
7- Curricula (development and education of creativity)

The 7 C’s can be interpreted in terms of creative cognition, neuroscience, education, design, engineering, socio-cultural creativity studies.
