Submit Abstracts for the 21st Annual International Deming Research Seminar

By John Hunter, author of the Curious Cat Management Improvement Blog.

The 21st Annual International Deming Research Seminar will be held in Washington DC, 23 and 24 March 2015. The first 20 seminars were held at Fordham University in New York City, before the move to Georgetown University for 2015.

The W. Edwards Deming Institute is seeking research papers from diverse perspectives, businesses, organizations and industries that provide examples of Dr. W. Edwards Deming’s theories applied in the present day, or papers linking Dr. Deming’s work to that of other great thinkers.

Research papers must be original works. Please submit your abstract of 200 words or less electronically to The Deming Institute at by 3 November, 2014. Selected speakers will be notified by November 17th and invited to present their papers in a session at the Seminar in March 2015. Research papers will be due on 12 January 2015.

The Research Seminar brings together people from around the world, and from a variety of businesses and industries, to extend and illustrate Dr. Deming’s theories.

Join us to hear innovative new approaches and directions being tested by others to enhance operations, build trust, foster leadership, promote commerce, create ethical business cultures, and sustain success. Enjoy dialogue stirred by new thinking, and informal networking with Deming practitioners and leaders in the Deming community.

The Deming Research Seminar is an academic seminar, intended to impart knowledge. Speakers are also attendees, paying the admission fee and all expenses. Attendees will be of all adult ages, experiences and backgrounds – including college students, entrepreneurs, and professionals from businesses, government, non-profits and educational institutions.

List of papers and speakers for the seminar last year.

Some of you may remember, as I do, that the first several Deming Institute fall conferences were held at this same location – the Georgetown University Conference Center.
