About the Conference

We live in an inter-connected world. In the era of Industry 4.0, technology is getting embedded more and more in the way ‘we learn, live, work and play’.

This progression is accelerating at a pace never seen before. Inter disciplinary and collaborative research across disciplines within the Technology domain and Management domain, and across the Technology — Management interface is opening up exciting new possibilities for solving problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline, domain or practice, and helping to create a brave, new world. We are living in an incredible time of change.

Our effort to hold such an interdisciplinary conference, in the virtual mode, apparently resonated across the academic community, as was evident from the huge response that the first ever conference on “Interdisciplinary Research in Technology and Management”, (IRTM) held in February 2021 had received from participants across many countries. This has encouraged the organizers to hold the next edition of the conference physically in Kolkata on a larger scale in the online mode.

Inevitably, questions have again been raised more vehemently on what kind of a world we want to live in. Environmental concerns are being pursued with renewed vigour, The urgency of developing new, robust infrastructure relevant for the new world is gaining wider consensus.

By 2030, as reports suggest, cyber – physical systems – internet of things, wearable technology, et al – will be everywhere and in everything, renewable energy will power the world, and digital entertainment will take centre stage among other developments.

The fourth edition of the conference on “Interdisciplinary Research in Technology and Management” attempts to spotlight the above concerns. The number of tracks on which papers are invited from scholars, researchers, consultants and practitioners to share their interdisciplinary research and consultative work has been enlarged. As before, the papers will be peer reviewed and authors of the selected papers will be invited to present their papers in IRTM 2024.

The presentation of papers will be interspersed with Keynote Talks by eminent experts on the theme of the conference or individual domains.

Papers are invited in the following domains; but this is indicative only and authors may also submit their research on topics which are relevant to the theme and goal of the IRTM conference.
