Remarks: Japan TRIZ CB has decided to publish the slides and papers of the invited/keynote lectures by posting them in its Official Pages as shown above. The contents of Introductory and all contributed presentations at the Symposium, however, have been decided not to be published in its Official Pages (just as done for the First TRIZ Symposium). Nevertheless, since the Authors of presentations at the Symposium have the copyrights of their own papers, they are able to submit their own papers to any journals or Web sites (including those in Japan) for publication or posting; in such a publication the Authors are requested to refer to the Second TRIZ Symposium in Japan.
