ICMIT2006 continues a series of international conferences (ICMIT2000, ICMIT2002 and IEMC2004) devoted to the area of innovation and technology management first initiated by the IEEE Engineering Management Society Singapore Chapter. These conferences aim to provide a platform for international scholars to meet and exchange ideas in exciting locations within Asia.

With the conference theme ¡°Managing Innovation in Emerging Markets¡± the organizers hope to channel attention to emerging geographical markets with widespread impact such as China and India and the potential markets for emerging products and technologies. The management challenges for these emerging markets are numerous and multi-faceted. How should entrepreneurs exploit the emerging markets? How should the energy appetite of China and India be managed? What and how specific innovations (technological and otherwise) could be introduced into these markets to make more efficient use of energy? With China now being the country with the highest number of mobile phones in use, how will 3-G technologies be exploited and how should product and technology providers position themselves there? Evolving around these and similar questions there must be a lot of scope for all those interested in innovation and technology management to think about and to exchange ideas at the conference. In addition, managing innovation to create affordable and successful products and services targeted for the developing nations, such as disruptive innovation, would be of great interest to both academics and industrialist/entrepreneurs.

Topics for the conference include but are not limited to the following:

Technology Management
R&D Management
Innovation Policy
Globalization of R&D
Technology Transfer
Technology Core Competence
Managing Innovation Entrepreneurship
