Preliminary CFP: WOIC 2015

The deadline is June 15 for submissions to the 2nd World Open Innovation Conference (WOIC 2015). The conference will be held November 19-20, 2015 in Silicon Valley, California.

Here is the program committee’s preliminary schedule for submissions:
  • June 15, 2015: Deadline for submission of research abstracts
  • July 15, 2015: Notification of accepted papers
  • August 15, 2015: Registration deadline for accepted papers
  • November 1, 2015: Final research papers due
The top papers from the conference will be invited for consideration in a special issue of California Management Review.

As in 2014, there will be a call for problems that allows firms and other organizations to share their open innovation challenges for discussion by conference attendees. Many of the guidelines will be similar to the 2014 CFP. If last year’s demand is any indication, I (personally) suspect there will be a rule-of-one (ala DRUID, OUI and WOIC 2014).

Stay tuned for more details — including the exact location, paper submission format and deadline for the call for problems — which will be posted here and on the official conference website.
