Trends as reported by KPCB (Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers), mobile devices (iPods, iPads , iPhones and Android based devices) have hit critical mass. Smartphone + tablets shipments have exceeded PC shipments. Five countries namely China, USA, Russia, Brazil, and India constitute 46% of the Internet users. Year-on-Year global mobile platform 3G-subscriber growth is around 35%. Farmville and Cityville from Zynga are examples of great new social products ramping up extremely quickly. Real time social features such as Sharing + Location + Friending are accelerating mobile usage growth. Moreover convergence is the new trend. For example, Smartphones are making TV interactive. With constant product improvements, mobile is revolutionizing commerce. This new trend has been called SoLoMo Ė Social, Local, and Mobile. With trends such as ubiquitous and cloud computing, more affordable devices, personalization, and explosion of apps social, local and mobile will converge. The acceptance and acceleration of SoLoMo have started transforming the ways of peoplesí life.

 

Keeping that in mind, the theme of IWIPS 2012 is Transforming with SoLoMo (Social, Local, Mobile)

 

In 2012, IWIPS is coming to India and will be held from September 5-8 in Goa.

At IWIPS 2012, the participants will consist of designers, practitioners, and researchers, from both academia and industry. The workshop will offer tutorials, keynotes, industrial case studies, panels, story telling sessions, late breaking research and presentations.
