ICT and Science in a Complex World
17–19 June 2015
The Open University
Milton Keynes, UK

Deadline for Abstracts by 16th March 2015

ICTPI’15 conference aims to bring together leading representatives of
academic, business, and government sectors worldwide to present and discuss
current and future issues of critical importance for using science and
technology to foster regional economic development and shared prosperity at
home and abroad.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit papers relevant to any
of the main themes of the Conference (

 – Smart Cities: Cities face significant challenges as the result of
increased population and urbanization. Smart Cities use information and
communications to manage resources effectively to meet the new challenges.

 – New Economy: A transformation of the commerce landscape is in progress.
This is fuelled, amongst others, by factors such as: improvements in
information technology, the internet, mobile communications; improved
quality management, and waste minimization. This transformation is
underpinned by energy policy, particularly the competing pressures of
economic growth and affordability, reliability and security of societal
services, and environmental protection both locally and globally.

 – Data Security: The last decade has seen an explosion of new kinds of
economic and social activity through the internet and related information
and communication technologies. However, alongside huge benefits are huge

 – Education Futures: The improvements in technology witnessed over the
past decade has made new ways of designing and delivering education
possible. It is now easier to provide a differentiated curriculum tailored
more to individual needs, and involve far greater numbers in the
educational experience. This has bought into question long held pedagogic
practices, we need to reassess models of learning and how student progress
is tested and supported.
