ICTM 2013

Second International Conference on ICT Management
for Global Competitiveness and Economic Growth in Emerging Economies

Wroclaw, Poland, September 16-17, 2013

Conference Theme: Economic, Social, and Psychological Aspects of ICT Implementation

Organizers: The College of Management Edukacja and University of Wrocław

Emerging economies with their dynamic development and rapid growth are often considered the engines of the global marketplace. Unfortunately, despite this vigorous economic growth, most emerging economies still lag behind the mature, developed countries in economic output and standard of living. To truly close this gap, new management techniques, new business models, and new regulatory policies, among other factors may be needed. Moreover, information and communication technologies (ICTs) will likely play a vital role in this development process. Thus, the objective of this conference is to provide a forum for interested researchers and practitioners to exchange their experiences and creative ideas related to ICT management for global competitiveness and economic growth in emerging economies.  Possible topics may include but are not limited to the following:

  • Social, political and legal frameworks as they relate to ICT and ICT Management
  • Unique ICT management techniques for emerging and transition economies
  • Methods for measuring the benefits and costs of projects involving the adoption of ICT
  • The role of human and social capital
  • Innovative ways for generating revenues and creating commercial knowledge products
  • Educational systems and training as they relate to ICT and ICT Management
  • ICT to support small and medium enterprises
  • ICT as a path to economic growth
  • ICT productivity with specific reference to the prevalent social and business conditions
  • Global supply chain management in emerging and transition economies
  • Country specific case studies, with specific reference to the prevalent social and business conditions
  • ICT off-shoring/outsourcing into emerging and transition economies
  • ICT project management, with specific reference to the prevalent social and business conditions
  • Digital divide in emerging and transition economies
  • E-commerce impact in emerging and transition economies
  • E-government in emerging and transition economies
