A conference on engineering design is a complex product
2004 (English)In: Design 2004: Proceedings of the 8th International Design Conference, Vols 1-3 / [ed] Marjanovic, D, 2004, 1355-1362 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
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.
