The Spring Servitization Conference is dedicated to this phenomenon, and brings together the world’s leading researchers and practitioners to debate the theory and practice of servitization.
Spring Servitization Conference 2015 (SSC2015) will be hosted by Aston University, running from 18th – 20th May 2015.
This year the conference will feature:
Keynotes from senior executives at leading manufacturers.

Double blind refereeing of papers and publication in proceedings (hard and soft copies available)
Discounted joining fee for joint industry-academic presentations
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
Best paper about Information Technology enablement of servitization

Abstracts are invited on all aspects of servitization. Relevance to practice is important, and contributions from doctoral students are welcomed.
Abstracts of 300 words should be submitted for review no later than 24th January 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Accepted abstracts should be developed into full papers and submitted by 3rd March 2015, when they will undergo a blind review. Papers that are accepted (or accepted subject to minor amendments) will be presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings. If you have any questions please contact Jill Forrest at email@example.com, or telephone +44 121 204 3249
As a result of industry support, we are able to offer a number of sponsorships for conference attendance. These sponsorships cover the conference fee and are principally intended to help early years researchers to attend. You can make a request for support to firstname.lastname@example.org once your abstract has been accepted.
