The IAJC-IJME Conference Committee is very pleased to invite researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present their latest accomplishments, innovations, and potential future directions in engineering, engineering technology, industrial technology, and entrepreneurship.

The IAJC-IJME Conference is intended as a meeting point to discuss advances and collaborations in engineering, engineering technology, industrial technology, and entrepreneurship. Various fields of engineering , engineering technology, industrial technology, and entrepreneurship are facing significant changes and will encompass knowledge, information, and data from related fields of study. Works from all fields of engineering, engineering technology, and industrial technology are considered for acceptance.

We welcome full papers for peer review and works-in-progress (WIPs). We also invite submissions and ideas for panels, special sessions, workshops, and expositions.

Submission Requirements

Paper submissions must meet the IAJC-IJME guidelines posted in the Author's Kit link on this Web site.

Submissions should be sent by email to: submission@ijme.us and a copy sent to an appropriate division chair.

Additional questions should be directed to: Dr. Mark Rajai.

Procedures for Submitting Papers

  • Abstract Submission is closed
    • Authors should submit a 300 or fewer words abstract (Using Microsoft Word in English) of their paper to submission@ijme.us to the attention of conference review committee no later than April 7, 2008. All authors should indicate if their abstract (s) are in the area of Engineering, Engineering Technology, Industrial Technology, Science or Entrepreneurship.
  • Abstract Acceptance Notification
    • All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the IAJC-IJME Conference Committee. Participants will be notified by email on April 14, 2008.
  • Full Paper Submission
    • The selected authors must submit their full manuscripts to submission@ijme.us by June 16, 2008. Full papers should be formatted according to the specifications on the Author's Kit Web page. All presentations must be in English.
  • Full Papers Acceptance
    • All submitted full papers will be blind peer-reviewed by three or more reviewers selected by the IAJC-IJME Conference Committee. Participants will be notified by email on August 15, 2008.
  • Final Paper Submission Deadline
    • All final papers must be submitted by September 05, 2008.
  • Final Paper Acceptance/Rejection Notification
    • Authors will be notified by September 15, 2008 if their final/revised paper is accepted or rejected for publication in the conference proceedings.

A Full Paper

  • Submissions must adhere to the Procedures for Submitting Papers and the Author's Kit guidelines.
  • Initially, you must submit electronically an abstract of 300 words or fewer, via the IAJC-IJME Conference Web site. Your abstract must contain the author's name, abstract title, author's affiliation, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address.
  • One author from each paper is expected to register for and participate in the IAJC-IJME Conference.

A Works-in-Progress (WIP)

  • A WIP describes preliminary developments of an ongoing project that involves state-of-the-art implementation, creative pilot programs, or nontraditional concepts.
  • WIP papers are expected to include importance to the community, current project status, expected outcomes, projected status by the conference date, preliminary results, and an evaluation plan. WIP abstracts will be judged in the same way as full papers. Authors must submit electronically an abstract of 300 words or fewer via the IAJC-IJME Conference Web page. The title of a WIP abstract must indicate that it is a WIP (for example, "WIP: A Study of Engineering Principals and Practices"). The abstract must contain the author's name, abstract title, author's affiliation, phone number, fax number, and e-mail address.
  • One author from each paper is expected to register for and participate in the conference.


The workshop is open to all individuals interested in all fields of engineering, engineering technology, and industrial technology. To encourage interaction and a broad exchange of ideas, the workshop will be limited to 15 to 20 participants, and ample time will be allotted for general discussion. Attendance is limited to people actively participating in the talks or in the discussions.

Panels & Special Sessions
  • Panels and special sessions are scheduled as part of the technical program in parallel with traditional paper presentations.
  • Panel sessions normally consist of short presentations by several speakers followed by a discussion period with the audience. Special sessions allow a variety of nontraditional formats and emphasize the involvement of all audience members in active learning. Special sessions are nontraditional in the sense that they are not like pre-conference workshops. They give session leaders an opportunity to take risks and try something that may be unproven in content and/or format. Thus they provide experiences that are "at the frontiers."
  • Sessions are 90 or 120 minutes in length.


  • Submit to the IAJC-IJME Conference Committee the plans for a potential exposition.
  • The plans must include the relevancy to modern engineering and related topics. A possible schedule and list of potential demonstrations, types of exhibits, and speakers is required. A description of security and security measures must be defined and submitted.
  • Hours of operations and number of days must be submitted and concurrent with normal IAJC-IJME conference dates.

Potential Topics of Interest

The following list represents potential areas of interest for the IAJC-IJME Conference. If your topic does not appear in this list, please submit an abstract or WIP for review and potential acceptance for the conference to: Mark Rajai


Acoustical-Aerospace-Agricultural-Acrhitectural-Automotive-Biological-Ceramic-Chemical-Civil-Communication-Computer-Control Systems-Electrical-Environmental-Fire Protection-Food Process- Genetic-Industrial-Information Technology-Instrumentation-Landscape-Logistic-Manufacturing-Marine-Mechanical-Microsystem-Mining-Nano-Naval-Nuclear-Optical-Ocean-Paper-Petroleum-Plastics-Quality Assurances

Engineering is the application of science to the needs of humanity. This is accomplished through knowledge, mathematics, and practical experience applied to the design of useful objects or processes. Professional practitioners of engineering are called engineers.

Engineering Technology

Architectural - Biomedical - Computer - Networking - Electrical - Mechanical - Surveying - Telecommunications

Engineering Technology is a broad term for the field that forms the backbone of manufacturing and other industries. It's often divided into smaller, specialized areas and skill sets. Electrical and mechanical engineering technologies create power systems and their components — things like electrical devices, motors, engines, semiconductors, circuits, and computers. Civil engineering technology focuses on building bridges, tunnels, and transportation systems — from subway and rail to air and space travel. Computer and telecommunications engineering technologies are at work in computer hardware and software, as well as in data and network systems.

Industrial Technology

Construction - CAD/CAM - Industrial Control - Networking Systems - Quality Systems - Transportation - Business Improvement - Validation Services - Batch and DCS Control - Process - Machine Vision - Regulatory Process

Industrial Technology is primarily involved with the management, operation, and maintenance of complex technological systems while Engineering and Engineering Technology are primarily involved with the design and installation of these systems.



Entrepreneurship seeks to reform or revolutionize the pattern of production by exploiting an invention or, more generally, an untried technological possibility for producing a new commodity or producing an old one in a new way,  by opening up anew source of supply of materials or a new outlet for products. Entrepreneurship essentially consists in doing things that are not generally done in the ordinary course of business routine. Entrepreneurship is the dynamic process of creating incremental wealth.  This wealth created by individuals who assume the major risks in terms of equity, time, and/or career commitment of providing value for some product or service. The product or service itself may or may not be new or unique but value must somehow be infused by the entrepreneur by securing and allocating the necessary skills and resources.
