Innovations in engineering and management are the collection of processes that govern the creation, dissemination and utilisation of knowledge. The theme of this special issue has been selected to examine the present scenario and future prospects of developments in the field and also to provide theoretical and practical information to academicians, industry professionals and policy makers.

This issue will contain contributions from academicians and scholars engaged in the inter-disciplinary field of management and engineering. It will provide information that will prove useful in policy and decision making, in improving teaching and learning practices, and in enhancing research capabilities and technological development in various spheres of advance studies.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the International Conclave on Innovations in Engineering and Management (ICIEM2013), but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
