About ICMIT2006
ICMIT2006 continues a series of international conferences (ICMIT2000,
ICMIT2002 and IEMC2004) devoted to the area of innovation and
technology management first initiated by the IEEE Engineering
Management Society Singapore Chapter. These conferences aim to provide
a platform for international scholars to meet and exchange ideas in
exciting locations within Asia.

With the conference theme "Managing Innovation in Emerging Markets"
the organizers hope to channel attention to emerging geographical
markets with widespread impact such as China and India and the
potential markets for emerging products and technologies. The
management challenges for these emerging markets are numerous and
multi-faceted. How should entrepreneurs exploit the emerging markets?
How should the energy appetite of China and India be managed? What and
how specific innovations (technological and otherwise) could be
introduced into these markets to make more efficient use of energy?
With China now being the country with the highest number of mobile
phones in use, how will 3-G technologies be exploited and how should
product and technology providers position themselves there? Evolving
around these and similar questions there must be a lot of scope for all
those interested in innovation and technology management to think about
and to exchange ideas at the conference. In addition, managing
innovation to create affordable and successful products and services
targeted for the developing nations, such as disruptive innovation,
would be of great interest to both academics and
