Individuals from industry, the public sector, and academia are invited to submit papers for peer-review and
proposals for symposia and workshops germane to the engineering management discipline. The Conference
is intended to provide a forum for practicing engineering managers and university researchers and teachers to
discuss topics of mutual interest associated with engineering management. In keeping with the conference
theme, of particular interest this year are papers dealing with innovative management in a globally
competitive world.

The program committee invites you to submit the following types of papers concerning issues relevant to the
discipline of engineering management:
 research results – papers of completed work;
 instructional issues – papers addressing relevant academic and continuing education issues;
 work in progress or research proposals – papers presenting areas of beginning or future research; and
 case studies – papers discussing engineering management methodologies and techniques.
Authors are encouraged to submit contributions in traditional and emerging engineering management areas,
such as:
