The 2007 conference proposes a shift in the mass customization debate from a physical product perspective to total life cycle experience. Mass customization refers to more than just configuring a piece of hardware, but shall be seen as the co-design of an entire system. This also includes customization for and by a community to enhance the individual.

On top of the established contributions from the engineering and management community, this conference also integrates disciplines like architecture, industrial design, or visual arts in the larger debate of customization.
