Second Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation

Conference Description: 

With the increasingly dominant role that the service sector plays in both developed and emerging economies, the conceptualisation, design, delivery, and evaluation of service systems have attracted significant research attention and policy focus. There is also a growing recognition of the critical role of service innovation in improving productivity levels and quality of life. The transition from the manufacturing and goods-based orientation to more of a service-dominant logic has gathered momentum in recent years. Information and communication technologies (ICT) play a central role in the design and delivery of service systems. Internet and World Wide Web-related developments such as web 2.0, semantic web, cloud infrastructure, and service-oriented computing and web services, social computing, and (internet-based) human computation are just a few of the technological advances that are helping to redefine the landscape of service systems.

The Service Science Society of Australia is the apex national body representing the services research community of Australia. It seeks to promote the understanding and use of service science in government, industry and academia. The Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation series serves as its annual meeting.

The second Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation will bring together a cross-disciplinary group of researchers and practitioners who are engaged in research and development in the area of services, broadly defined. It will feature keynote addresses and invited lectures by prominent researchers in the field. There will also be contributed paper sessions as well as a forum for PhD students to present their service-related thesis research. An industry forum featuring a few of the key players in industry and government will also be a part of the symposium.
