ICT Management for Global Competitiveness and Economic Growth in
Emerging Economies
Wroclaw, Poland, September 17-18, 2012
Sponsored by AIS Special Interest Group on ICT and Global Development
(SIG GlobDev)

CONFERENCE CO-CHAIRS

Fast growing emerging economies, including transition economies, are
often considered the growth engine of the global economy.
Unfortunately, despite the fast growth of emerging economies, the
economic gap between emerging economies and the mature, developed
countries still exists. It seems that in order to truly close this
gap, new management techniques, new business models, and new
regulatory policies, among other factors are needed. Moreover, it
could be expected that information and communication technologies
(ICTs) will play a vital role in this process.

Thus, the objective of this conference is to provide a forum for
interested researchers and practitioners for exchanging their creative
ideas on these issues.

Possible contributions regarding the ICT management for global
competitiveness and economic growth in emerging economies may include,
but are not limited to, the following:

1. Social, political and legal frameworks and ICT Management in
emerging and transition economies
2. Unique ICT management techniques for emerging and transition economies
3. Methods for measuring the benefits and costs of projects involving
the adoption of ICT
4. The role of human and social capital
5. Innovative ways for generating revenues creating commercial
knowledge products in emerging and transition economies
6. Educational systems and ICT Management in emerging and transition economies
7. ICT to support small and medium firms in emerging and transition economies
8. ICT management in small businesses as a path to economic growth
9. ICT productivity studies at the country, industry or firm level,
with specific reference to the social and business conditions
prevalent in emerging or transition economies
10. Global supply chain management and its contribution to emerging
and transition economies
11. Country specific case studies, with specific reference to the
social and business conditions prevalent in emerging and transition
economies
12. IT off-shoring / IT outsourcing into emerging and transition economies
13. International ICT project management, with specific reference to
the social and business conditions in emerging or transition economies
