The 18th International Product Development Management Conference (IPDMC) will be held from June 5-7, 2011 at the Delft University of Technology in the historic town of Delft in The Netherlands. For the first time in the history of this conference, it will move to a Design School; the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. This faculty is the largest university-based design school in the world with more than 2,000 students enrolled in the bachelor degree or in one of the three masters programs that the faculty offers

The special theme for our conference will be “Innovate through Design”. This means that we welcome papers on the topics of design thinking and design management along with the more common innovation management and new product development themes for the IPDM Conference. We plan to hold a special exhibition highlighting innovative product designs that have been developed at the faculty in the hall in which we will take refreshments. Special key notes will be delivered by famous designers and by high profile academics.
