Industrial Product-Service Systems (IPS2), which is defined as “an integrated industrial product and service offering that delivers value in use,” has expanded rapidly over the last decade. IPS2 has allowed us to achieve both high added value and high productivity and has enriched our QOL by improving the performance of products and services. We are now struggling with many awkward issues related to sustainability, but IPS2 is expected to be the “philosopher’s stone” for solving these issues. Following the pattern of conferences held in Cranfield in 2009, Linköping in 2010, and Braunschweig in 2011, the fourth International CIRP Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems, held on November 8-9, 2012, in Tokyo, will cover various aspects of IPS2. Topics planned for this year’s conference reflect the latest IPS2 information in both the natural sciences and humanities and include case studies from various industries. IPS2 is still a relatively new field, so it is important to keep track of the entire context in order to promote more cross-sectional cooperation between multimodal fields and disciplines. The fourth International CIRP Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems will serve as a vital platform for such collaborations and the discussion of new scientific ideas.

“An Industrial Product-Service System is characterized by the integrated and mutually determined planning, development, provision and use of product and service shares including its immanent software components in Business-to-Business applications and represents a knowledge-intensive socio-technical system.” – Meier, Roy, Seliger (2010) Since the first conference in 2009, the CIRP International Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems has become a well-established international forum for the review and discussion of advances, research results and industrial improvements. Researchers from all over the world have met at previous IPS2 conferences in Cranfield (2009), Linköping (2010), Braunschweig (2011) and Tokyo (2012). In 2013, the 5th CIRP International Conference on Industrial Product-Service Systems is held in Bochum. Important topics of IPS2 research presented at the conference are: planning and development, sustainability, business models, operation, service engineering, knowledge management, ICT, modeling and simulation, marketing and economic aspects as well as the role of the human in IPS2.

We need a bold new brand of teacher leadership that will createopportunities for teachers to practice, share, and grow theirknowledge and expertise. This book is about "teacherpreneurs"—highly accomplishedclassroom teachers who blur the lines of distinction between thosewho teach in schools and those who lead them. Theseteacherpreneurs embody the concept that teachers canteach as well as lead the transformation of teaching andlearning. It’s about empowering expert teachers who can buoythe image of teaching and enforce standards among their ranks whileall along making sure that their colleagues as well as educationpolicymakers and the public know what works best for students. The book follows a small group of teacherpreneurs in their firstyear. We join their journey toward becoming teacherleaders whose work is not defined by administrative fiat, but bytheir knowledge of students and drive to influence policies thatallow them and their colleagues to teach more effectively. Theauthors trace the teacherpreneurs' steps—and theirown—in the effort to determine what it means to define andexecute the concept of "teacherpreneurism" in the face of toughdemands and resistant organizational structures.
