The 6th annual Summer School in Services SEM2011 was organized by Aalto University (Espoo, Finland), from Sunday August 28th to Wednesday August 31st, 2011.
This year the scope of the Summer School focuses widely on Services, and in particular on two Tracks.
Lead by the distinguished Professor Christian Grönroos from the Hanken School of Economics
Lead by distinguished Professor Eva Brandt from Copenhagen Design School
In addition to these key note speakers, we had lectures from professors Kyoichi Kijima and Hiroshi Deguchi from Tokyo Tech (the topics: service systems science and dynamic markets).
The students will be asked to prepare abstracts and short papers which they will present in their sub-tracks at the summer school. Each faculty member will be asked to read and comment on the papers and presentations within their sub-tracks. As a result the students receive valuable comments from their peers and respected faculty on their papers as well as 2 credits for participating.
The Summer School is funded for by the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management. Students will be asked to cover their own travel and accommodation expenses.
In addition, there were 2 visiting Master level students from Japan (Tokyo Institute of Technology).
