Call for Papers
PIC #16 at LocWorld51 Dublin

The Process Innovation Challenge (PIC) is now in its eighth year, and the final of PIC #16 will take place at LocWorld51, in Dublin, Ireland on Thursday, June 6, 2024.

At a time of rapid flux in our industry, have you been working away on something cool, productive, or disruptive and would like to share with peers?

Well then, join us at PIC #16!

The PIC is open to content publishers, industry supply companies, technologists, academia, and anyone else in the industry who has an innovative idea that can solve a localization or global content challenge. Your innovation could be a unique idea that was successfully applied to a localization process that improved operations, or it could be a new way of using something existing to solve a new problem, or it could be a new and cutting-edge technology innovation that brings real benefit to teams. If you have any of these, share them with the localization community by submitting your proposal to the PIC.

Perhaps you will be in a photo like this from LocWorld50 Silicon Valley!

Successful proposals will be invited to join our 3cubed Preliminary Virtual Rounds (in early April 2024) where they can pitch their idea for a chance to move on to the PIC final in Dublin.

We say to all innovators: “Show us your latest innovations!”

Innovators do not need travel approval to submit and participate in the preliminary rounds of this edition of the Process Innovation Challenge, which will be held virtually. However, upon notification of qualifying for the final round, to be held in person in Dublin, Ireland on June 6, innovators will need travel approval to be included as a finalist.  If an innovator is unable to attend the final round, they may opt out of this event and forward their proposal for consideration at the next LocWorld.

You can re-submit a prior PIC proposal if it was not previously shortlisted, or if you have adapted the innovation since pitching before.

If you have any questions or difficulties with the submittal process, please contact . Dates are indicative and may change at the discretion of the PIC advisory board.
