Welcome to ICE 2023

Making the future … | Edinburgh, 19 – 22 June 2023

The University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering and the Institute for the Study of Science, Technology and Innovation (ISSTI) are delighted to host 29th ICE IEEE/ITMC conference in 2023 under the theme of  Making the future…

ICE IEEE/ITMC is the International Conference on Engineering, Technology, and Innovation, part of the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS). It developed from an early focus on the engineering method of concurrent engineering to the general organisation of the engineering process and its organization within the corporation and in networks. The ICE conference, therefore, discusses systems engineering as a socio-technical task focusing on the design of products and services, and the entrepreneurial innovation process for its adoption in society and the economy.

In line with Edinburgh’s strategic vision, the conference will have a specific focus on data-driven engineering, innovation and entrepreneurship.

Local organising committee: Dr Matjaz Vidmar, Prof Jamie Fleck and Prof Robin Williams
