The MCPC conference series is the premier event for the international Mass Customization community. Every two years, we organize the large global MCPC conference (the previous event was in Helsinki in 2009, the next one will be in Oct. 2011 in North America). But in the last years, a number of side events has been organized with a topical or regional focus. Since several years, a MCP event is organized for Central Europe, the MCP-CE (the next conference takes place in Serbia in Sept. 2010, see the call for papers and participation)
Now, MCP is getting a new Asian-Pacific outpost with the MCP-AP, MCP-Asia Pacific. The first event of this kind will take place in December 2010 in Taipei, the capital of Taiwan. As a central manufacturing and innovation hub of the world, the Taiwanese economy has been focused since many years on flexible and customer-centric manufacturing strategies. But also in other countries of Asia, the concept of mass customization has been adopted to a large extend. Japan probably is the leading MC country in the world, and also China is rapidly adopting MC methods.
So if you can make it and are interested in networking with the Asian side of mass customization, consider to participate or even present at the MCP-AP.
The event is taking place on Dec. 6 and 7 at the prestigious National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, and will be followed by a business seminar on Dec 8 in Taipei. The MCP-AP has an open call for presentations, and next to scholars, especially managers are very much invited to participate and present their MC experiences.
Topics of the Call for Papers include, but are not limited to:
* MCP Product and Process Design
* MCP Manufacturing and Logistics
* MCP Information Systems
* MCP Communities and Personalization in E-commerce
* MCP and Services
* MCP and CRM/Branding
* MCP Case Studies: Industrial Goods, Consumer Goods, Services
* MCP for Assistive Devices/Technologies
* Technology-enabled MCP
* Strategy-aligned MCP
To participate and present, submit an abstract until June 15, 2010 to the conference organizers.
