There has been a dramatic growth in the variety of applications of foresight in international organisations, and in countries around the world. In recent years, innovation and uncertainty have been the new status quo, and forward-looking management is becoming a critical tool for organisational survival.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to:

* Case studies of successful/unsuccessful national foresight projects

* Comparative analysis of national foresight projects

* Critical success factors of foresight studies

* New methodologies for foresight projects

* Methodology taxonomies
