IWIPS 2010 - Growing Global Design Communities
You are cordially invited to attend the 9th Annual International Workshop on Internationalisation of Products and Systems (IWIPS 2010), to be held in London England, from 7 -10 July 2010.
IWIPS 2010 is hosted by the Centre for Internationalisation and Usability at Thames Valley University, London. Rooted in the discipline of HCI, the Centre for Internationalisation and Usability aims to support software developers in building systems that meet the needs of end users in a global market. IWIPS 2010 thanks Thames Valley University for their hospitality.
The IWIPS forum promotes an enhanced awareness of globalisation and localisation issues in the IT industry; attracting industry and government professionals, academics and students from around the World. IWIPS 2010 theme - Growing Global Design Communities – focuses on practical issues and solutions, as well as knowledge sharing on leading edge research.
The IWIPS 2010 theme of Global Design Communities is all about bringing together diverse cultures and people who now, through social media are successfully collaborating, sharing, contributing, cross fertilising, building connections, building better products, and building better lives.
IWIPS prides itself on the fact that it also provides delegates with the opportunity to develop their skills, increase their knowledge, and create and strengthen their international networks.
The IWIPS 2010 Agenda is currently in the planning stages; an open call for papers and tutorials has begun. The final Agenda, a programme of highly interactive forums; includes presented papers (research & case studies), break-out sessions, keynotes, panel discussions and tutorials, will be announced in March 2010.
IWIPS is a truly international workshop. Since its beginning in 1999, IWIPS has attracted delegates from more than 30 countries and six continents (we are still waiting for a delegate from Antarctica!).
Costs to delegates are kept as low as possible, to ensure that those from overseas or without substantial institutional or corporate support can attend. The month of July, was carefully chosen to accommodate a break in teaching that coincides internationally.
We know that you have to be selective when choosing a conference for 2010 – we hope it is IWIPS 2010! We promise you will not be disappointed
