Call for Papers: TrizIn 2011 – 2nd Annual TRIZ India Summit

This is a Call for Papers to be presented at the 2nd Annual TRIZ India Summit, taking place on July 28 & 29, 2011 at Bangalore. The summit is being organized by Crafitti Consulting in partnership with The Altshuller Institute for TRIZ Studies (AITRIZ).

Summit Topics

TRIZ Papers

Our emphasis is on REAL case studies of TRIZ being applied in problem solving and innovation contexts. We are strongly interested in providing content for corporate and academic use. 

Papers on the following topics are suitable for the conference. This is not a restrictive list.

  • TRIZ Evolution
  • TRIZ Applications
  • TRIZ Integration
  • TRIZ for Patent Analysis
  • TRIZ-based research
  • Classical TRIZ
  • Variants of TRIZ
  • Domain-specific TRIZ applications
    • TRIZ for Electronics and Semiconductors
    • TRIZ for Chemical, Petrochemical and Plastics
    • TRIZ for Civil and Mechanical
    • TRIZ for Management and Quality
    • TRIZ for Nanotechnology & Ultra large systems
    • TRIZ for biotech and pharmacy
    • TRIZ for automobile
    • TRIZ for software
    • TRIZ in Education
  • TRIZ Case Studies


New category: Non-TRIZ Innovation Papers

Realizing that there are many other techniques followed/used in various contexts for Innovation, Invention and Problem Solving, we are happy to accept non-TRIZ papers from the Innovation community. These can be serendipitous or orchestrated innovation methods, experiments, case studies and experiences that have emerged through application of which are not originated from TRIZ. Possible examples may be Six-Sigma, Lean Thinking, Six Thinking Hats, SCAMPER, any other known method or even a new framework that the authors have developed and experimented with, failed or succeeded. 

Our objective is to understand and try to integrate other techniques with TRIZ. With this objective we are inviting papers in the category “Non-TRIZ Innovation papers”. 

Authors of Non-TRIZ Innovation papers accepted at the conference will be expected to present their papers during the conference (similar to other paper presentations). Select papers  will be taken up for panel discussions on how to synergize the problem solving technique(s) provided in the paper with TRIZ and discover new solutions or new ways to craft a solution.

New category: Innovation Problem Statements

While the above topics are focused on how TRIZ (or any other innovation framework) “has been” applied to reach a solution in a given context, we realize that conference participants would also like to listen to “live” discussions and debates on how TRIZ “can be” applied in an innovation context. Well-articulated problem statements offer a great basis for discussion and debate.

With this objective, we are inviting papers in the category “Innovation Problem Statements”. 

Problem statements are expected to contain:

  • Background of the problem
  • Scope of the problem
  • Detailed description of the problem
  • Any related or associated problems
  • Any known solutions and inadequacies in those solutions

Problems defined and articulated using TRIZ would be preferred; however, this is not a mandatory requirement.

Authors of innovation problem statement papers accepted at the conference will be expected to present their problem statement during the conference (similar to other paper presentations). Select problem statements will be taken up for a panel discussion.


Submission Requirements

Interested parties are invited to submit an abstract (250 to 300 words) of their proposed paper with

  • Title, along with a brief.
  • Name and current biography of the author/s.
  • Picture of the author (head shot).
