"Innovation Beyond Technology" is the theme of the 16th biannual congress, ALTEC 2015, organised by The Latin-Iberian American Association of Technology Management (ALTEC), together with the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS).   

Innovation is often considered in relation to the recent technological advances and their practical impact. Recent scientific discoveries rapidly generate new products and processes, proving that our focus is on their economical impact first. However, innovation, in its full extent, is also a concept that evolves our organizations, shapes our social interactions and impacts environmental and public policy. The XVI Latin Ibero-American Conference on Technology Management seeks to analyze the several facets of this recent phenomenon, based on different presentations and discussions.

ALTEC 2015 is expected to attract between 500 delegates worldwide, in addition to local participation making it the largest gathering of its kind. In addition to the technical sessions, the ALTEC 2015 local committee is organizing a program that includes several keynote speakers, panel discussions of technology related themes with prominent technology managers, economists, and policy makers.

ALTEC will comprise three main tracks: 

    - Context & Policies
    - Systems & Sectors
    - Specificity of Innovation Process

Upcoming deadlines:
