IWIPS 2011 provides an appropriate platform in addressing

data collection methods when designing and developing internationally
marketed products and systems.

  Internationalization/localisation of software products, web applications,
and hardware products

  Processes for producing international products

  Methodologies for the collection of international design data

  Methodologies for the evaluation of international products

  Addressing Cultural differences in product design

  Design of products for multilingual communities

  Using metaphors for international products

  Systems for adapting products

  Cultural attitudes towards technology

  Cultural bias and adaptation-Cultural diversity and unification

  Effect of technology on culture

  Global Culture vs. Local Culture on the Internet

  Technologies that enhance/aid the design of international products

  HCI4D - HCI for Development

  Innovative Solutions for Emerging Markets

The first workshop, IWIPS'99, was held at the Rochester Riverside Convention
Centre, Rochester, NY USA. The 2001 workshop was held at the Open
University, in Milton Keynes, UK, the first to be held outside the U.S.
Following the success of the ninth IWIPS 2010 in London, UK, IWIPS'11 is
being held for the first time in Asia, i.e. in Kuching, Borneo, Malaysia. In
addition to the conference, the location would provide participants a
first-hand glimpse of the cultural diversity, the home of 2.4 million people
comprising more than 30 ethnic groups and 63 languages. At IWIPS 2011, the
participants will consist of designers, practitioners, researchers, from
both academia and industry. Given the location, we expect more participation
from Asian countries. The workshop will offer tutorials, industrial case
studies, demonstrations, keynotes and presentations. In addition,
participants will also be able to network and share knowledge and
experiences with participants from another co-located conference, Seventh
Conference on Information Technology in Asia 2011 (CITA '11) held
simultaneously with IWIPS 2011.  Registration to IWIP 2011 will also entitle
you to complimentary registration to CITA'11 (
