Roadmapping and i-Systems
The abstract should summarize the contents of the paper and should contain at least 70 and at most 150 words. It should be set in 9-point font size and should be inset 1.0 cm from the right and left margins. There should be two blank (10-point) lines before and after the abstract. This document is in the required format. Roadmapping, as a strategic planning tool, is attracting increasing applications in industries. By applying the principles of Interactive Planning (IP), this paper puts forward a new solution for making personal academic research roadmaps. Then this paper introduces an ongoing project that is to develop a roadmapping support system based on the solution, and gives some considerations about applying the i-System Methodology for enhancing the knowledge creation in a roadmapping process.
