We are pleased to announce the organization of the 2006 Technology, Management and Policy Graduate Consortium Annual Meeting, which will be held at IST, in the city of Lisboa, from June 25 to June 27, 2006.
We are aiming for the informal and intimate quality of previous consortium meetings, so participation will be limited to invited guests. The specifics of registration for the conference will be sent to invitees directly.
As in all previous meetings, our thematic basis is the presentation of research topics in the area of technology, management & policy. Past topics have included, for example, (a) technological developments for environmental management and economic development, (b) assessment of technologies, strategies and policies at either the company or national/regional levels, and (c) case studies and evaluation of emerging technologies.
Important dates for participants
For those who are interested, a Lisbon tour will be offered on Sunday (June is a good month for sightseeing in Lisbon). Please let us know by May 12 if you would like to participate. Details on the agenda for the Sunday event will be forthcoming.
During the meeting, the IST is happy to provide lunches, coffee breaks and a dinner Monday night. Travel, accommodation, other meals and optional tourist activities will be the responsibility of individual participants or their home departments.
We have set aside a block of rooms between June 25th and June 28th at two hotels within walking distance of the meeting location:
