The 7th International Workshop on Internationalisation of Products and
Systems (IWIPS'05) is the latest in a series of annual international
conferences highlighting top quality research and industry experience in
the development of systems and interfaces for international and
intercultural use.

The IWIPS field is committed to the belief that in order to develop
products and systems for a global market, it is necessary to understand
international user differences, the effects of cultural backgrounds on
user behaviour and the practical aspects of designing, developing and
supporting international systems.

The conference will be held in the historic centre of Amsterdam and will
offer a proven mix of tutorials, keynote presentations, paper
presentations, demonstration booths, poster presentations, panels,
interactive sessions and informal social events to optimise the
cross-fertilization of information and ideas from researchers and
practitioners in this multi-disciplinary field.
