Call For Papers

The effective study, design and implementation of service systems has been recognised as a key driver of future prosperity in both the developed and developing world. This recognition has been a driver and platform for research over the past decade that has sought to build a multi-disciplinary foundation for a science of services. The Fourth Australasian Symposium on Service Research and Innovation (ASSRI’14) provides an important forum for advancing this agenda in the Australasian region—analyzing and assessing the progress towards this goal, and providing a forum for discussing emerging directions in service research.

ASSRI’14 will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of researchers and practitioners who are engaged in the field of services, broadly defined. The symposium will feature keynote addresses and invited presentations by prominent thought leaders in the field, and there will be concurrent sessions focused on the latest research supporting the different academic perspectives on services. Researchers and practitioners are invited to join us in Canberra this November, and where appropriate, to submit papers and proposals for workshops, tutorials and panel sessions that reflect the breadth and quality of work being undertaken in the field of services. Contributions related to the conference theme will be particularly welcome.

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