Computer-AidedInnovation(CAI)isayoungdomaininthearrayofCAxte- nologies. ThegoalofCAIistosupportengineersandenterprisesthroughoutthe completeinnovationprocess. AlthoughsomeexistingideasandconceptsofCAI focus on assisting product designers in their creative stage, a more compreh- sive vision conceives CAI systems beginning at the creative stage of perceiving business opportunities and customer demands, then helping in developing - ventions and, further on, providing help up to the point of turning inventions into successful innovations in the market. Following the track of the last two successful CAI conferences held in 2005, in Germany, and 2007 in USA, the ThirdIFIPWorkingConferenceonComputer-AidedInnovation(CAI)washeld in Harbin, China, and attractedparticipants fromacademia and industry. This workingconferencecontinuedthe traditionofstronglylinkingacademicand- dustrymembers. Theconferencehadseveralparallelsessions, andeightkeynote sessions. Over 100 participants attended the conference. Some famous scholars wereinvited askeynotespeakers.
