2020 International Symposium on Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship

October 28-30 2020
Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship in Emerging Markets

The IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society conference International Symposium on Entrepreneurship and Intrapreneurship (or TEMS-ISEI for short) is a conference focused on the challenges and practices of technology management and business innovation in today’s business environments.   This is a global conference with a consideration for global challenges.  Innovation and Entrepreneurship using technology impacts many areas beyond the traditional IT scope. This includes area such as transportation, medicine, and agriculture where new technology is having a significant impact.  The conference focuses on the studies, cases and practices involved in managing technology businesses, both new and traditional.  The event includes an Industry Forum where industry leaders speak on the directions and challenges they see in industry, its use of technology and how to manage it.  Emerging Markets is a key area of interest for this event.

  • Major topic areas include:
    • Business Model Innovation in Emerging Markets 
    • Cross-Border and Local Venture Capital Investment
    • New Markets for Entrepreneurs
    • Management of Innovation  
    • Technology Management  
    • New Technology Directions and Challenges
    • Managing Globalization Challenges
    • People and Organizations
    • Health, Sustainability, and Social Issues 
    • Logistics and Supply Chain

Selected papers will have the opportunity to be published in a special issue of our flagship journals. This would include research articles suitable for our journal IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management (IEEE TEM) and practical and case study articles suitable for our journal of practice, the IEEE Engineering Management Review (IEEE EMR).  All papers would have to be suitably expanded beyond the conference paper for IEEE TEM. IEEE EMR submissions would need to be edited, targeted and formatted for one of three types of papers published by IEEE EMR.  Each paper will be subject to the corresponding journal’s rigorous peer review process.

The conference will host an Industry Forum inviting speakers from industry leaders around the world that will provide visions and industry in a rapidly developing technology world. 

In addition to these core technology management topics, we will open the door to special sessions on management during these challenging times as seen by sponsoring societies, for example, particular management issues as seen within computer, communications, and electronics areas.  This is one of the TEMSCON series of conferences offered by IEEE TEMS.
