Upcoming Event – San Sebastian, Spain on October 19th-21st

Category : event

This year the special sessions SOCO 2016 on Computer Aided Innovation takes place in San Sebastian, Spain on October 19th-21st

Organized with the aim of offering to WG5.4 members an opportunity to meet, present your research, network with another community. Computer-Aided Innovation (CAI) is a young domain in the array of CAx technologies. The goal of CAI is to support engineers and enterprises throughout the complete innovation process. Although some existing ideas and concepts of CAI focus on assisting product designers in their creative stage, a more comprehensive vision conceives CAI systems beginning at the creative stage of perceiving business opportunities and customer demands, then helping in developing inventions and, further on, providing help up to the point of turning inventions into successful innovations in the market. Following the track of the previous IFIP WG5.4 working conferences, this workshop aims to continue the tradition of strongly linking academic and industry members.
