INNOVATION NETWORKS, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
17th -21st May 2021
The innovation emerges through collaborative efforts of innovation network actors and in turn paves the way for successful entrepreneurial ventures. With advancements in information technologies the need arises to redefine our understanding of what constitutes innovation networks. In turn, the advancements in the field of artificial intelligence enable entrepreneurs to differentiate themselves from rivals in previously unprecedented ways and to harness the benefits of innovation networks through novel channels.
Topic areas include but are not limited to:
• Entrepreneurial Ecosystem
• Business Models in New Technologies
• Technology Advancements in Artificial Intelligence
• Technology Forecasting
• Legal, Ethics, and Social frameworks
· Open innovation practices &disruptive innovation
· Integrated Frameworks
· New Business Venturing
• Technology Management
• Technology in Society
• New opportunities using technology and global networks
• Networks and HRM
• Application of Industry 4.0
• Digital transformation
• Network artificial intelligence, machine learning and reasoning
• Managing Globalization Challenges
• IT in education
• Education for STEM
• Knowledge Management
• People and organizations
• Human Factors for Design
We invite contributions from engineering leaders, researchers, educators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and students to help advance the understanding and the state of practice related to successful technology and engineering management. Contributions may take form of academic research or practicefocused papers.
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 future issues, which could be addressed by the research community. We thus provide a venue where different points of view interact to yield new understanding and ideas on leading innovation as well as the future of technology and engineering management.
Acceptance of papers for presentation at TEMSCON 2020 will be based on a full paper review (not an abstract review). Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
Selected papers will have the opportunity to be published in an issue of our flagship journals. This would include research articles suitable for our journal IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management (IEEE TEM) and practical and case study articles suitable for our journal of practice, the IEEE Engineering Management Review (IEEE EMR). All papers would have to be suitably expanded beyond the conference paper for IEEE TEM. IEEE EMR submissions would need to be edited, targeted and formatted for one of three types of papers published by IEEE EMR. Each paper will be subject to the corresponding journal’s rigorous peer review process.
HOW TO REGISTER AND SUBMIT PAPER
There is a two-tiered pricing structure to publish at and attend TEMSCON 2021. All attendees must pay the conference registration fee, which is based on the person’s IEEE membership level. In addition, there is a publication fee for each paper, with the cost depending on whether the author is seeking to be published in IEEE Xplore or seeking to be published in the IEEE Open Access Journal[BM2] .
