PDMA Research Forum 2015


Product Development and Management Association Research Forum, Anaheim CA, 7-8 Nov 2015; Deadline 4 May

PDMA’s Annual Research Forum is the premier conference for discourse on new product development (NPD) and innovation research. It is an important forum for intellectual exchange and state-of-the-art research on all aspects of NPD-innovation. For researchers, it is a stimulating international milieu for developing research partnerships and interacting with other academics and with managers. For managers, the forum provides an opportunity to learn of the latest research, reflect on their own practice, and engage with innovation thought-leaders.

The co-chairs welcome your participation in the Research Forum, including submission of competitive papers, extended abstracts, special sessions, and poster abstracts. The co-chairs welcome submissions on all topics related to product innovation and management, including, but not limited to, the design and development of new products, service innovation, customer co-creation, the use of social media in NPD, organizing for global NPD, launch strategies, interorganizational collaboration, and sustainable new product development.
