Organized Workshop"Cubes for Innovation: Information Systems for Design and Marketing"
Co-sponsored by University of Tsukuba and IEEE SMC Japan Section
DATE: 3 March (Saturday), 2007
VENUE: Lecture Hall 212, Engineering Building 2,The University of Tokyo
Sponsors:IEEE SMC Society, Japan SectionTechnical Committee on Information Technologies forDesign and Marketing, IEEE SMC SocietySchool of Business Sciences, The University of Tsukuba,
Scope: Three cubic building blocks of systems innovation in businessare discussed. I-cube is focused on the cognitive aspect of systematic thinking for innovations. D-cube is focused on data-based decisionsapplied to realize creative marketing and designs. Data visualizationtechniques are presented as a promising bridge to connect D-cube andI-cube. C-cube is focused on the communications in a creative humangroup. We present each speaker's study and exchange informal ideas about the three cubes, in order to develop a systematic process to innovation by combining I, D, and C cubes.
