Calls for papers and upcoming conferences


We are honored to announce numerous conferences and industry summits for 2016 and planning is well underway for even more in 2017. Organizing conferences is always a challenge. With the help of our members and of other passionate enthusiastic people around the globe we can do this in a collaborative and innovative manner. Should you have an interest in organizing events, please do not be a stranger. We welcome your involvement as a part of the conference leadership team, as a track chair, a manuscript reviewer, identifying speakers, or perhaps organizing a conference and most importantly as an attendee. Please let us know. Please inform your colleagues or friends about our conferences. All of these events are designed to provide opportunities to discuss, to debate, to obtain new insights or ideas, to network, and to be an important part of your current and future success.

June 8-10, TEMSCON 2017, San Jose, California, USA,

Our new flagship conference organization is underway. The CfP for TEMSCON 2017 is out on the TEMSCON website. The theme is Innovation and technology management in the entrepreneurial era,  Moving Technical Idea to Market . 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. Major topic areas include: • Entrepreneurship and its ecosystem • Management of innovation • Technology management • Engineering management • Strategy and global markets • New manufacturing and supply chain systems • Information Technology and the Internet • Biotech and healthcare innovations • Social issues and sustainability • People and organizations. In addition to these core topics, we will open the door to special sessions on management during these challenging times as seen by IEEE societies, for example, particular management issues as seen within computer, communications, and electronics areas. For topic details, see our web at In addition we will be hosting: 1. Education programs in Technology and 2. Engineering Management Editor’s Panel – publication outlets in Technology and Engineering Management
