The IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society Conference – Asia Pacific (TEMSCON-ASPAC) is a conference focused on the challenges and practices of technology and innovation management in today’s business environments. Recently, emerging markets have become a main attraction for their rapid economic development. Dynamic growth of new ventures and startups in these markets has brought new business competitive landscape. Existing organizations have taken a new level of importance in driving innovation. Nevertheless, a success of managing innovation with differences in environment and organization context requires careful adaptions. As such, there is a strong urge to disclose both new theories and new patterns in management practice so that innovation management in emerging markets context can be further advanced.

Contributions may take the form of academic research or practice-focused papers.
