We are very pleased to introduce the proceedings of the Second International Conference on Digitalization and Management Innovation (DMI 2023). The central theme of the DMI 2023 conference showcased Building a New Ecology of Lifelong Education by enabling experts and scholars worldwide to share and debate the latest ideas. The agenda of the conference consisted of keynote speeches, invited speeches and oral presentations. These questions were addressed and debated by the speakers and through papers presented at the conference. Over 150 papers were submitted for presentation at the conference. Given the number of speakers, the conference organizers used a series of 3 sequential sessions during August 2–3, 2023, each on a specific theme, to provide each presenter sufficient time for presentation and to accommodate presenters within the overall time allocated. A major conference theme was related to the links between information technology, digitalization, and lifelong education. In addition to keynote speakers, sessions throughout the conference related to Big Data Modern Management, the Interdisciplinary Applications of Digitalization and Management Innovation, and Organizational Behavior in Digital Transformation.
Nearly 200 attendees from 20 countries in Europe, North America and Asia were present at DMI 2023, either online or in-person in Seoul, South Korea. In the event, the conference was highly successful. The 47 selected papers presented in this text reflect DMI’s commitment to quality, which was validated using a peer-review process by the Conference’s Technical Program Committee (TPC) and its expert reviewers. The program was chaired in a professional and efficient way by the session chairpersons who were selected for their international expert subject standing. These Proceedings indicate the state of development at the time of writing of all aspects of DMI, and will serve to provide a range of global perspectives reflected in the conference paper submissions. For this reason, we thank all individuals who were keynote speakers, and presenters, and those who submitted papers to DMI 2023. Finally, it is appropriate to thank the administrators and organizing committee and members of the TPC for their work in securing a substantial input of papers and in encouraging participation across the globe. We also record our appreciation for the support from the organizers: Keimyung University, Xiangnan University and Beijing Wuzi University. Their effort made a great contribution to the success of DMI 2023 conference.
