Finally all (most of the) the TRIZCON 2008 abstracts are out.. Check out here
35 abstracts in total, and interesting to see the Asian connection, especially Indian..!! There are 15 papers coming only from Asia; India, China, Taiwan and Korea. What is more interesting is about 6 papers only from India!
I'm very happy to see Karthik and Prashant's papers as well. I look forward to see them at TRIZCON 2008. And another good news, and I'm so proud of is that Navneet is taking one tutorial!!
Another interesting observation; NO paper from Japan!! Even the regular and one of the most passionate TRIZnik from Japan, Toru san, is also missing in the list. It looks like they are more successful in running the Japan TRIZ conference started last year. It looks like western world is going to miss the practitioners TRIZ success.
I'm very happy to see the number of papers from MindTree this time. The first year after I joined we presented one paper (From my VP), and last year 3 and this year 4. I hope to get more in future, not just for TRIZCON, but other TRIZ conferences across the world.
Good to see Amir Roggel is speaking this time, as a key note speaker. Perhaps the best TRIZ facilitator in a corporate environment. Over 1000 people have been trained under his leadership at Intel. I'm glad to be associated with him for a new Industry TRIZ Learning initiative by him.
I look forward to the completion of mine and my colleagues papers. I'm grateful working with them, without them many of my achievements couldn't have reached here. I also thank my friends and other TRIZnik's around me, the friends some of whom I have never met, but working with them by co-authoring some papers.
Hope to see you all at TRIZCON 2008..!
