About ICTM

The International Conference on Technology and Management (ICTM) is an annual international conference that provides an opportunity for academics, practitioners, consultants, scholars, researchers and policy makers with different backgrounds and experiences, to present their papers in the conference and to discuss their experiences, new ideas, research results, as well as any practical challenges encountered and/or the solutions adopted during their work. Case studies, abstracts of research in progress, as well as full research papers will be considered for the conference program for presentation purposes.

Areas of Research

The papers should be original research and case studies in the fields of computing, technology and management, and on issues surrounding integration of Computing, Technology and Management in a multi-disciplinary context. Therefore, the conference series is of interest to academicians, researchers, policy makers, environmentalists, managers, planners, industrialists, consultants, government and NGOs globally, across a range of disciplines.

Students’ Participation

Conference committee highly encourages doctorate (PhD) and postgraduate students to present their research proposal, or literature review, or findings, or issues in this conference. Undergraduate students can ONLY attend academic conferences if (a) his/her research is funded by an organisation/institute, and/or (b) supervised by the member or faculty, and/or (c) co-authored by a Master’s student. Otherwise, undergraduate students can only attend a conference as a listener without presenting paper.

Objective

The overall objective of International Conference on Technology and Management (ICTM) is to provide a platform and stimulate discussion on key issues in the fields of Technology and management, as well as to encourage research and discussion surrounding these areas.

Why ICTM

The consequences of shortages of research and innovation, especially in the fields of technology and management is under publication and a vicious recycling of often unusable knowledge. A priority to mitigate these problems is research to investigate and develop systems that lead to an improvement in technology and management. The establishment of the conference series on Technology and Management shall stimulate an exchange of research findings and ideas that contribute to innovation and development to bring about better livelihoods. Thus, the International Conference on Technology and Management proceedings aim at strengthening evidence based research and innovation, support and inform technology and management policy and practice, as well as improve learning in and across trans-disciplinary organizations and academic institutions.  The first (maiden) International Conference on Technology and Management (ICTM14) was held from 4th to 5th August 2014 in Kampala, Uganda.

International Conference on Technology and Management - ICTM 17

The Organizing Committee of ICTM-17 cordially invites you to participate in the International Conference on Technology and Management to be held in Kampala, Uganda from 1st to 2nd August, 2017.

ICTM-17 will provide a distinctive environment where authors, practitioners, researchers, professionals and academicians from the Technology and Management disciplines can engage in the future developments in terms of service provision.

Technology and Management are undoubtedly drivers for both public and private enterprises and organizations. Today, we understand that technology drives all what we do irrespective of service domain. Therefore managing service provision and the technologies integrated within the organizations is very important for development.
