The preliminary objective for holding International conference on intellectual
capital management (IICM) is bringing together varied groups of people with
different perspectives, experiences and knowledge in one location. It aims
to help practitioners find ways of putting research into practice and researchers
to gain an understanding of real-world problems, needs and aspirations to identifying
and surveying intellectual capital development potentials, specifically in
Middle Asia, Middle East and Iran. Researches show big portion of intellectual
capital has not utilized correctly or has misused, because of lacks in identification
and assessment, poor communication and relations, weak integrated registration
systems, prohibitions, immigrations, low rate of technology achievement index,
tardy in globalization and etc.
Holding of IICM in 2009 and 2010 has motivated people from different countries in objected
regions and so more, has shown a huge potential of participation in other continents.
We have found out wide range of needs and interests in developing and underdevelopment
countries in IC management fields. We have received so many papers (299 submitted
papers in IICM2009 and 311 papers in IICM2010), participating requests and greeting letters in
this two events from different
countries and academicians, which have motivated us to follow our vision to
holding IICM continuously. And across to this, founding first regional IC
center in Zanjan Science and Technology Park(ZSTP)s to communicating Middle
Asian and Middle Eastern academicians and organizations in IC fields. This
IC center will be help to making possibilities for mutual IC developing projects
in regional wide, which is very important to our Region and now it has a wide
range of effect in 5 continent both in theory and experince in real workspace.
According to this, IICM will be place to annual gathering of academicians and
a place to sharing finding, researches results and experiences. Following this
objectives, IICM2012 will be held to introduce result of in-depth researches
