2017 ISPE International Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering
November 1st, 2016
Singapore, July 10-14, 2017 (TE2017)
It is a pleasure to invite you to the 2017 ISPE International Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering (TE2017). The conference is organized by ISPE and the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. It will take place in Singapore from July 10 to 14, 2017, in the Nanyang Executive Centre.
The International Society for Productivity Enhancement (ISPE) was founded in 1984 in the USA with the goal to support and improve the international exchange of ideas and scientific knowledge in the field of technological development and application. ISPE Inc. was registered as a non-profit organization in New York in 2004. It is officially called ISPE Inc. since then.
The main objective of ISPE, Inc. is to transfer and integrate new knowledge with relevant existing or new technology and improve strategies and resources to enhance productivity and competitiveness of current product and service producers and thereby improve the quality of the life.
ISPE Inc. has successfully organized 23 international conferences, focusing on the research and industrial application aspects of Concurrent Engineering. From 2016 onwards, the series take the name of “ISPE International Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering”, to reflect recent achievements and inspiring practices that cross the boundaries of tradicional engineering, in close alignment with the Concurrent Engineering paradigm.
ISPE Inc. conference proceedings are currently published in the form of an open access book under the Creative Commons license. The 2015 conference proceedings (Transdisciplinary Lifecycle Analysis of Systems, vol. 2) has been downloaded over 2,000 times in just a few weeks, which demonstrates not only high quality of the papers, but also global interest in the covered topics.
Full papers are peer reviewed and the proceedings is fully indexed by Thomson Reuters/SCI, Scopus, Compendex/Ei and others.
