UEM Congress 2017

UEM Congress 2017

Date – 16th – 18th August 2017

Venue – Sasin Graduate Institute of Business Administration, Bangkok Thailand

Introduction:

The 8th UEM Congress which will deliberate on the theme of “Disruptive Technology and Disruptive Innovation– A Renaissance of this Century” will provide an opportunity for researchers, educators and students to discuss and exchange ideas on issues, trends, and developments in Disruptive Technology and Disruptive Innovation. We invite submission of research papers, case studies and policy prescriptions, based on conceptual as well as empirical work, in engineering and applied sciences, business and management, economics/ political/ social sciences. The Congress aims to bring together scholars, practitioners, consultants and policy makers from different disciplinary backgrounds to facilitate dissemination of on-going research and experiences in Disruptive Technology and Disruptive Innovation. All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore, Taylor & Francis or to American Journal of Business Management & Technology.

There will be a participation of around 40 countries worldwide with more than 300 researchers/academicians/industry representatives and students. This conference is financially and technically sponsored by Taylor & Francis , American Journal of Business Management & Technology, Institute of Engineering Management (IEM) & University of Engineering Management (UEM).

This conference will also promote an intense dialogue between academia and industry to bridge the gap between academic research, industry initiatives, and governmental policies. This is fostered through panel discussions, keynotes, invited talks and industry exhibits where academia is exposed to state-of-practice and results from trials and interoperability experiments. The industry in turn benefits by exposure to leading-edge research in networking as well as the opportunity to communicate with academic researchers regarding practical problems that require further research.
