Orrington Hilton

Engineering Management in an era of disruption

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.

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 2019.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
