Abstract [en]

Many of the challenges in organising and developing an international engineering conference under severe time and cost constraints are similar to those involved developing a complex technical artefact. The large number of authors and reviewers who are active in the process and the just-in-time character of their deliveries further complicate the task. This paper describes and analyses the experience of developing a recent international conference on engineering design from a product development perspective. Key factors for developing a successful conference are analysed. The main purpose is to provide future conference organisers with recommendations to help promote successful and rewarding conferences.
