Call For Papers
1st EAI International Conference on Technology, Innovation, Entrepeneurship & Education
1st-2nd September 2016, Canterbury Christ Church University, United Kingdom
The central theme of this conference is ‘technology and business innovation’. In particular this conference will focus on the application of entrepreneurial mind-sets and new creative design tools, especially those that support cross-fertilization of ideas between the worlds of business, science and the arts.
The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organisation devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT.
All accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP. The conference will include a number of supporting workshops (a call for workshops will be made).
The aim of the conference is provide a platform where practitioners from the fields of technology, business and the arts can come together to explore the potential for interdisciplinary collaboration as a means of creating more innovative research, companies and economies. In particular the conference seeks to attract creatively minded people from technology, business and the arts who are keen to explore the potential synergies that might arise from pooling different perspectives on creativity and innovation. In general terms, the conference seeks to adopt a broad view of ‘technology and business innovation’, embracing diverse topics such as R&D strategies, foresight studies, technology entrepreneurship, maker & hacker spaces and motivating STEM careers. In addition to exploring general areas of innovation, each edition of the TIE conference will adopt a special creative theme. In this spirit, for this edition of TIE we will especially welcome contributions that explore the role of narrative fiction in the creative design process (but, of course, the conference is open to papers addressing all areas of technology and business innovation). Examples of narrative fiction tools include scenario based design, design fiction and science fiction prototyping. More specifically we will organize the conference around four generic themes; ‘Technology For Innovation’, ‘Innovation Methodologies’, ‘Entrepreneurship & Creativity’ and ‘Education For Innovators’ that are described in greater detail below:
Theme 1 -Technology (for innovation)
Emerging Technology Landscape
Technology Product Innovation
Theme 2 - Innovation
Narrative Fiction Tools (special theme for IE'16)
Theme 3 - Entrepreneurship
New Venture Creation
Theme 4 - Education (for innovation)
Motivating STEM Careers
Creative Approaches to Teaching
Maker and Hacker Spaces
