International Workshop on Internationalisation of Products and Systems
July 11-13, 2002
Product Developers, Global Marketing Managers, Researchers, Academics,
HF and Usability Specialists
SUBMISSION DATE: 1 FEBRUARY 2002
The convergence between telecommuni-cations, information technology,
and more conventional electronic products such as radio/TV presents a
major opportunity for the development of international products.
The IWIPS workshop series aims to pro-mote awareness of the problems
facing in-ternational industry, and their implications for research
and development. In addition to the presentation of papers and case
studies, as well as the availability of tutorials, the workshop
provides a venue for meetings, discussion of results and cooperation
at an international level. The Workshop is organ-ized to maximize the
exchange of informa-tion and ideas among a delegation from across the
globe. Participants will leave with more knowledge and skills in the
area of product and software internationalisation, and a network of
colleagues who are fo-cused on the issues that globalisation creates
for the design and production of prod-ucts and systems.
The conference theme is "Globalisation - Ahead of the Curve".
We encourage those of you who may be able to share your "leading edge"
experiences with technology as it pertains to global commerce and
