Abstract

New information and communication technologies have imposed a dynamic on the contemporary world that is inducing transformational change within economic, social and cultural realms, resulting in synergy and convergence effects that are difficult to predict. To put it simply, within the growing complexity and unpredictability of the ambient conditions, there is no defined, closed repertoire, strategy, or solution, whether business oriented or institutional, that provides both effective and innovative approaches to the increasing structural problems of the global stage. The only existing solution to maintain a sustainable competitive advantage within today’s world of permanent and endogenous change is the involvement of human capital (potential): its creativity and innovative approaches which alone can become a source of Schumpeter’s creative destruction.

This implies even more, in the case of emerging economies, which still lag behind the more mature, developed countries both in economic, social and cultural standards of living. To truly close this gap, an interdisciplinary approach to human capital (human resources) is more than required, especially in reference to the transformational potential of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and any associated new management techniques, new business models, and new regulatory policies. 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, social and cultural growth in emerging economies.

Possible topics may include but are not limited to the following aspects of innovation:
• Economical, psycho-social 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
• Gender and other socio-demographic factors in human and social capital and in innovations processes
• Innovative ways for generating revenues and creating commercial knowledge products
• Educational systems and training as they relate to ICT and ICT Management
• Tradition and contemporaneity of pedagogical thought
• ICT innovations to support small and medium enterprises
• ICT innovations 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 psychosocial 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
• Healthcare and ICT Management
• Psychological, social, and economic aspects of Internet use in emerging and transition economies
• Virtual reality in psychological treatment and psychotherapy
• Analytical psychology and psychotherapy in the era of new technology
• Information and communication technologies in personnel recruitment, assessment and development
• Leadership and new technologies
• Psychological aspects of working in a virtual team
• Information and communication technologies in an ageing society
• Quantitative methods and information technology in management
