The MCPC 2009 just has started. It begun with some hick-ups in the morning, when the conference website server had some problems, but now everything is running well and working.
We are just sitting in the conference pre-workshops. After some introduction by Fabrizio Salvador and myself, we are just working in the three different workshops: (1) Martijn Pater is talking about "Co-Creation and Co-Design with Consumers", (2) Fazleena Badurdeen just is having her "MC Simulation Game", and (3) Mitch Tseng is building with Lego's to explain the advanced basics of "Building up Product Family architectures for mass customization".
Here is the link to the conference web site with all information. And in case you cannot come but want a souvenir, you can create your customized MCPC t-shirt here!!.
