|Call for Papers and Participation|
|The CIRP IPS2 conference will return to Linköping, where it was hosted in 2010! Linköping will be the first to host this conference for the second round – and on its 10th anniversary! Building upon this established conference series, the theme in 2018 will be resource efficient and effective solutions (REES), because our societies face increasing demands to better address resource and environmental challenges, and considering that IPS2 (Industrial Product-Service Systems) has much in common with REES.
IPS2 2018 will provide a unique arena to discuss opportunities, challenges, and solutions related to IPS2 and REES. The discussion will be based on the latest findings from industry and cutting-edge research results from academia. In addition, this will be an excellent networking opportunity with delegates coming globally from both industry and academia.
Especially for researchers, the sessions with scientific papers will focus on discussion of commonly raised issues within a given topic, because we believe discussion is what you want from attending an academic conference. The discussion will be moderated by leading researchers in the area. In addition, workshops with industry practitioners for industry-oriented topics will be an invaluable opportunity to learn from companies, mainly based in Sweden, working on IPS2 and REES.
