PICMET'19 Conference

Theme for the 2019 conference, which marks 30th Anniversary of PICMET, will be "Technology Management in the World of Intelligent Systems". As artificial Intelligence, robotics, autonomous cars, drones, the IoT (Internet of Things), and the applications of these intelligent technologies to nano-materials, energy, medicine and other industries are rapidly changing the world we live in, the future of society, economy and industry will be radically different from the present. This year's conference will be focusing on managing these transformative technological changes, through proper technology management practices including the management of not only the technical system, but also the economic, environmental, social, political, legal, ethical and regulatory aspects of technology, possibly to create an unprecedented economic growth, cure the "incurable" diseases and stabilize the environmental ecosystem.

We invite you to join us to celebrate decades of advancement in the field of technology management.
