9th International Workshop of Internationalisation of Products and
Systems
www.iwips2010.org 
London, England, 7 - 10 July 2010 
to be held in Thames Valley University.

IWIPS 2010 committee is seeking submissions on the topics of
localization and globalization, with an emphasis on this year's theme:
Growing Global Design Communities. The objective of the 2010 theme is to
focus on the impact of international design teams on the design,
evaluation, and development of products and systems.  IWIPS invites
several types of submissions, including papers, case studies,
research-in-progress and tutorials.  All submissions are due 15 February
2010, unless indicated otherwise. Accepted submissions (except
tutorials) will be published in the IWIPS 2010 proceedings.

Suggested Topics for Submissions 
As the world's economy recovers from the downturn, the need increases
for effective, efficient, and socially responsible strategies for
supporting global design communities. Strategies that address both
business and human issues are of great importance. Topics of interest

      Cross-cultural issues in IT design
       
	User centric strategies for economic and community development
IT projects 
      
	Revised models for global IT off-shoring, outsourcing and
distributed resources
       
	Sociotechnical design and evaluation frameworks 
      
	Methods for software localization / globalization 
       
	Designing for trust 
      
	Dealing with intercultural issues in participatory design
      
	The impact of Social Networks and other CMC tools across
cultural boundaries 
      
	Interactions between culture and user-centred design
      
	Managing geographically dispersed  multicultural design
communities
      
	Localising usability evaluation and requirements gathering
techniques
