2020 | IEEE Technology & Engineering Management Conference (TEMSCON)

2020 03 – 06 June
(originally scheduled Detroit, Michigan)
Location: Virtual

Engineering managers are increasingly expected to lead innovation initiatives across their organization’s value chain.  Realizing the benefits of constantly changing environments, whether through the adoption of new or improved technologies, business models, or processes, must be led proactively.

IEEE TEMS, as an expansion of its entrepreneurship program, held its first pitch competition at the IEEE Technology & Engineering Management Conference (TEMSCON 2019) on 14 June 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

2020 | TEMSCON welcomes contributions from engineering managers and leaders, researchers, educators, innovators, entrepreneurs, and students to help advance understanding and the state of practice related to successful engineering management. Contributions may be research or practiced focused.

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 issues which could be further addressed by the research community.

The IEEE Technology & Engineering Management Conference (TEMSCON) acts as a venue where different points of view interact to yield new understandings and ideas about leading innovation as well as the future of technology and engineering management. Read More.
