[Welcome to the 2020]
International Conference on Technology & Management

The 6th International Conference on Technology and Management (ICTM-20) cordially invites you to present academic papers and case studies in the areas of Technology and Management from 7th to 9th September, 2020, in Kampala, Uganda. Technology and Management are undoubtedly drivers for both public and private enterprises and organizations.

Today, we understand that technology drives all what we do irrespective of service domain. Therefore, managing service provision and the technologies integrated within the organizations is very important for development.

Organised jointly by Uganda Technology and Management University (UTAMU) and Uganda Industrial Research Institute (UIRI), ICTM-20 will provide a distinctive environment where authors, practitioners, researchers, professionals and academicians can engage in the future developments in terms of service provision.
