2019 International Conference on Managing Innovation, Technology & Entrepreneurship

Sterling Mac Hotel, Bangalore, India – 26 & 27 April, 2019

Managing in Disruptive Technology Environment

Technology is accelerating at an ever increasing rate is now a worldwide phenomenon. Diverse technologies such as IoT, Communications, Cloud Computing & Storage, Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, Virtual Reality, Block-Chains are becoming deployed at an increasing rate. However, none of these technologies can stand alone, they must be integrated into applications with other technologies to function as a whole. India’s Digital Identification project, a most ambitious project in the world of its kind, is an example of challenges today’s innovators, technology managers and entrepreneurs face. Success or failure of new technologies now largely depend upon how they integrate and function holistically.

TEMS IC-MITE 2019 is designed as a hybrid conference & industry forum to address issues related to these challenges. Just managing technology is no longer good enough it must include management of innovation and entrepreneurship. We invite contributions from engineering managers and leaders, researchers, educators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and students to help advance understanding and the state of practice related to successful management of innovation, technology and entrepreneurship in today’s highly disruptive environment. Contributions from both the academic and business perspectives are sought. Research papers may be conceptual, empirical, or theoretical, but they must discuss how the results could be applied in practice. Practice focused papers may consist of case studies, description of best practices, or application experiences but they should also shed light on new challenges and unresolved issues which could be further addressed by the research community. We thus provide a venue where different points of view interact to yield new understandings and ideas about leading innovation as well as the future of technology and engineering management.

Selected papers will be featured in a Special Issue of the Engineering Management Review or invited to submit to the IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management.

Topic areas include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Innovating in rapidly changing markets and sectors, e.g., health systems, manufacturing
  • Leading and managing innovation and transformation
  • Adopting new technologies:  challenges and risk mitigation
  • Understanding trends and applicability of new technologies – e.g., IoT, 5G, Block-Chain, Analytics, AI
  • Leading societal change, e.g., smart cities, public policy
  • Enhancing industry, university, and/or government collaboration
  • Developing personal skills for leading innovation initiatives
