QUIS15 was hosted by the School of Engineering of University of Porto (FEUP), on June 12-15, 2017. University of Porto is the coordinator of the Marie Curie Innovative Training Program in Service Design for Innovation (SDIN) and hosting the QUIS conference is an important outcome for this project. The QUIS symposium started in 1988, and brings together the best interdisciplinary academic research and management practices in a forum to advance the study of service management, service dominant logic, service leadership, service quality, customer relationship management, technology and innovations in services.
QUIS15 had 240 participants and all of the SDIN network Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) had their work accepted for presentation at the conference. Also, the SDIN network had an exhibition space at the conference, where our ESRs were able to interact with conference participants (and also offer free chocolates).
