2018 International Conference of the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society


Engineering Management in an Era of Disruption

June 28 - July 1, 2018

EEE-TEMS has reached out to offer ASEM members conference admission at the same rates as IEEE members. We hope to have the “discount code” from IEEE soon so please contact Angie for that information before you register. Also, please remember to plan for the ASEM IAC in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.

We invite contributions from researchers, educators, managers and students. Contributions may be conceptual, theoretical, or empirical. They should document research activities, case studies or best practices, shedding light on the theory or practice of engineering, technology, or innovation management, and addressing the strategic objectives of technological change.

There will be an opportunity to publish in IEEE Engineering Management Review as well as a Special Issue of our journal IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management for selected papers submitted to the conference.

Major topic areas include:

  • Entrepreneurship and its ecosystem
  • Management of innovation
  • Technology and engineering management
  • Strategy and global markets
  • New manufacturing and supply chain systems
  • Biotech and Healthcare Innovation,
  • Information Technology and the Internet
  • Social issues, sustainability, energy and infrastructure
  • Executive leadership, people and organizations
  • Special topic area: Impact of disruptive technologies on management

In addition to these core topics, we have special sessions on management during these challenging times as seen by IEEE societies. For topic details, see us at www.temscon.org. We will also be hosting:

  • Education programs in Technology and Engineering Management
  • Speakers and panels on disruptive technologies and business and managerial practices
  • Tours of Chicago area technology and innovation centers
  • Editor's Panel - publication outlets in Technology and Engineering Management

This event will include an Industry Forum on Technology Management Challenges in today's world- June 29, 2018. Special sessions can be proposed at this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/JPWZNKR
