The mission of the IEEE TEMS International Symposium on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ISIE) is to help promote and advance knowledge in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship. Through encouraging discussions on current topics such as business model innovation, new technology directions and applications, managing globalization challenges, etc., we aim to enhance and improve essential management and leadership knowledge and skills, and foster active knowledge transfer between the academic and practicing communities.

A signature IEEE TEMS industry forum will be run simultaneously at the conference in parallel with academic sessions. We invite contributions from researchers, educators, managers, and students. Contributions may be conceptual, theoretical, or empirical. They should document research activity, case studies or best practices, shedding light on the theory or practice of engineering, technology, innovation management, or entrepreneurship. Selected papers will have the opportunity to be published in a special issue of our flagship journal IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management, subject to our journal rigorous peer review process.

We look forward to seeing you in Hangzhou, China!
