The mission of the IEEE TEMS International Conference on Technology and Entrepreneurship (ICTE) is to help promote and advance knowledge in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship. Through encouraging discussions on current topics such as business model innovation, new technology directions and applications, managing globalization challenges, etc., we aim to enhance and improve essential management and leadership knowledge and skills, and foster active knowledge transfer between the academic and practicing communities.
A signature IEEE TEMS industry forum will be featured in the plenary sessions with a dedicated day of the conference. We invite contributions from researchers, educators, managers, and students. Contributions may be conceptual, theoretical, or empirical. They should document research activity, case studies or best practices, shedding light on the theory or practice of engineering, technology, innovation management, or entrepreneurship. Technology papers are welcome focusing on the directions of technology that would be applied to business development and entrepreneurship. Selected research papers will have the opportunity to be published in a special issue of our flagship journal IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, subject to our journal rigorous peer review process. For papers of a practical nature, including technology directions, business experiences, and case studies there will be a special issue of the IEEE Engineering Management Review for expansions of these selected papers.
We look forward to seeing you in beautiful and historic Bologna, Italy!
