CFP: OUI mit Sachertorte im Juli

One of my favorite conferences of the year is the open and user innovation workshop, informally known among attendees as the Von Hippel Fest.

In 2011, the conference is returning to Vienna for the first time since the original 2003 User Innovation Workshop.

The hosts of the Open and User Innovation Workshop 2011 are two well-known user innovation scholars, Nikolaus Franke and Christopher Lettl. The conference will be held at the Institut fĂĽr Entrepreneurship und Innovation at the Wirtschaftsuniversität Wien (aka WU Wien for us Yankees).

Nik & Chris have posted the details to a new website OUIcommunity.net. Some highlights of the CFP:
  • July 4-6, 2011
  • To be held in Vienna
  • About 200 scholars expected
  • Registration is first come, first served: early registration is recommended
  • Abstracts (of up to 2,000 words) are due by March 31, and the actual presentation is due May 31.
In addition to the minitalk and the full paper, the organizers are adding a third type of presentation, the panel discussion.

I was fortunate to be able to attend in 2008, 2009 and 2010. I hope to return this year if travel funding is available.
