The 23rd ICE/IEEE ITMC invites high quality papers to be presented at this premier international event. Submissions should contribute to a substantial, original and previously unpublished research in the topics of the conference. This includes, but is not limited to:
  • Theoretical research papers that provide new concepts in the domain of engineering, technology, and innovation;
  • Empirical studies and qualitative case studies that develop new insights;
  • System design and development papers that go beyond the pure description of systems and give insight into theory and effectiveness of the approach;
  • Verification and validation papers that evaluate the application of solutions.

The review committee is available to provide feedback on abstracts and paper ideas (submit your proposal to Papers will be selected in a double-blind refereeing process based on the submitted full papers. Final papers should have no more than 7.000 words (all inclusive) and should be in the correct format. The paper should clearly describe its purpose and relevance, reference to existing theories and related works, research methods used and major results in engineering, technology and innovation. Papers are expected to show the following structure: (i) Introduction, (ii) Relation to existing theories and work, (iii) Research/Technology/Innovation approach, (iv) Findings, (v) Conclusion, and (vi) References (Paper template).

Review criteria will be (a) whether and (b) how the paper extends the existing body of knowledge in engineering, technology and innovation as its contribution, and (c) therefore its relevance for the conference topics, (d) the scientific/innovation quality of the approach and (e) the clarity of presentation. Papers will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
