Date: 13-15 April 2007
Location: Kent State University in Kent, Ohio

Keep reading to learn about paper submissions:

The emphasis on papers for this event should be REAL case studies with measured results and how TRIZ was used to develop the solution. We are strongly interested in providing content for corporate and educational users. Attendees are looking for concrete case studies – where TRIZ has been applied to provide REAL solution concepts. Papers on TRIZ in education and other traditional topics are suitable for the conference.

New opportunities for the application of innovative problem solving are constantly being posed by contradictions in all aspects of technology. Equally important is a growing awareness that we need to tap the unrecognized resource within systems as we improve design. As more practitioners, companies, and industries incorporate TRIZ into their design methodologies, the methodology itself will become more expansive and more refined. The Annual Conference on TRIZ Studies is an excellent forum to facilitate this growth and refinement. Presentations of either insight or case studies from technical and non-technical fields are welcome. Completed projects and applications, as well as those in progress, are candidates for presentation. Presentations that interest attendees include:

  • New applications of TRIZ
  • Advanced applications of TRIZ
  • New developments in the TRIZ tool bag
  • Approaches and techniques that can be used by teachers in the
  • TRIZ applications that can be taught to children and the elderly
