In the last two decades, the ICE/IEEE ITMC Conference has brought together leading academics, researchers and practitioners, contributing to the global debate on research, science and innovation. ICE Conference is one of the premier conferences associated to the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (IEEE TEMS). This year, we would like to invite our growing community of researchers, innovators, industrialists, engineers and practitioners to share their insights, practices, projects and case studies that address the conference theme: “Era of connectedness: The future of Technology, Engineering & Innovation in a digital society”
The 24th ICE/IEEE International Technology Management Conference will take place on the 17th, 18th, 19th and 20th June 2018, in Stuttgart (Germany) and is organized by Baden-Württemberg Connected (bwcon), the leading technology Network in the South of Germany, together with the IST Innovationinstitute from the Lake Konstanz University. The 24th ICE/IEEE ITMC is a place where research, science and innovation is called for original ideas, papers, debates, initiatives and projects. Authors, workshop / tutorial organizers, and participants are invited to contribute to the shaping of the prospective on engineering, technology and innovation solutions for industry and societal challenges.
