IWIPS 2010 committee is seeking submissions on the topics of
localization and globalization, with an emphasis on this year's theme:
Growing Global Design Communities. The objective of the 2010 theme is to
focus on the impact of international design teams on the design,
evaluation, and development of products and systems.  IWIPS invites
several types of submissions, including papers, case studies,
research-in-progress and tutorials.  All submissions are due 15 February

tutorials) will be published in the IWIPS 2010 proceedings.

      Cross-cultural issues in IT design
	User centric strategies for economic and community development

distributed 	resources
	Sociotechnical design and evaluation frameworks 
	Methods for software localization / globalization 
	Designing for trust 
	Dealing with intercultural issues in participatory design
	The impact of Social Networks and other CMC tools across
cultural 	boundaries 
	Interactions between culture and user-centred design
	Managing geographically dispersed  multicultural design
	Localising usability evaluation and requirements gathering
