Special Session: New Perspectives in Management and Training

We call for papers for the special session for the 3rd International Conference on Industrial Application Engineering 2015. The conference will take place at March 28-31, 2015 in Fukuoka, Japan at the Kitakyushu International Conference Center ( KICC ).

The special Session complements the normal conference program and runs throughout the conference in parallel to other tracks (except the keynote presentations). Engineering technology can enhance productivity and facilitate service through rationalizing the production process and improve the product quality. But it can’t function adequately without the human factor taken into account. The special session aims at providing an opportunity for researchers and professionals to present studies on the various management and training issues related to industries. Participants can also take an in-depth look in the most recent trend in this scientific field through extended dialogues and exchanges of ideas.

A wide range of research topics are acceptable, as long as they cover the emerging trend in the field of industrial management and training in the recent years. Topics that are of special interest (but not limited to) include the follows:

Management / Business Administration / Human Resources / Business Strategy / Information Management / E-Commerce / E-Business / E-Management / Industry Innovation / Institutional Management / Organizational Behavior / Risk Management / Strategic Marketing / Investment / Finance Management / Corporate Governance / Advertising / Hospitality Management / Economic Growth / Entrepreneurship / Human Resource Management / Industries and Regional Studies

Education / Psychology and Counseling / Adult and Continuing Education / Family Studies / Civic Education and Leadership / Special Education / Information and Computer Education / On-the-job Training / Off-the-job Training / Intercultural Communication Training / E-learning / Higher Education / Social Psychology / Communication Training / Social work in Modern Society / Language Training / Consumer Psychology / Industrial and Organizational Psychology / Consulting Psychology / Gender, Diversity and Social Issues

Public Administration / Policy and Sustainability / Governmental System and Practices / Reforming and Consolidation / Sustainability Report/ Sustainable Innovation/ Development and Environment / Sustainability Management / Management education, training and development
The special session does not conform to any single structure. Presentations may involve one presenter, a series of lectures or a panel; a discussion or an illustrated lecture. Researchers who want to make a presentation are required to submit a proposal. It is acceptable in the following two forms:
(1) Abstract: 1~2 pages
(2) Full paper: 6~8 pages

All accepted abstracts and full papers, including those for video presentation, will appear in the conference proceedings on the condition that at least one author should complete registration by the due date. Authors of papers for video presentation should send their videos to the organizing committee after the registration. The deadline for proposal submission is Jan.16. Submission should be made via the online submission system. Notification will be sent out within 2~3 weeks after the submission is received. Selected full papers will be formally published in Journal of Management and Training for Industries (JMTI) (https://www2.ia-engineers.org/JMTI/index.php/jmti), with the ISSN (online) 2188-2274, ISSN (Print) 2188-8728.
