CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: 10th International Conference on Electronic Commerce


Semantic technology moving towards interoperability:
Join the 10th International Conference on Electronic Commerce

ICEC08 brings together the top of the scientific research community in
e-commerce and e-business from all over the world

Innsbruck, Austria, August 19-22, 2008

The adoption and ubiquity of modern Internet access provides rich and
varied opportunities for innovation and improvement of businesses. Over
recent years, developments have led to a shift in the way business is
conducted, from providing new and innovative service frameworks for B2B,
to increasingly sophisticated Web 2.0 services to improve the B2C user
experience. Simultaneously, advances in the use of devices, as well as
AI techniques have provided better and more varied access to e-commerce
systems as well as facilitating greater autonomy in the way business is
conducted. The Internet offers unique opportunities for individuals,
businesses and governments to seek new ways of providing novel services,
both qualitatively and quantitatively at substantially lower costs.
Although many challenges remain, advances in Service Oriented
Architectures and Semantic Web have opened up new models and avenues for
research and exploitation.

The International Conference on Electronic Commerce (ICEC) provides a
forum to share invaluable experience of good practices and pitfalls in
strategy planning, design, development, engineering and implementation
of e-services.

ICEC08 will be held in Innsbruck, Austria, and will feature:
 invited keynote presentations
 panels on topical issues on technology, business and public policy
 paper presentations on emerging and continuing research issues
 tutorial and workshop program
 demonstrations and posters
 doctoral consortium

The conference is organized into several tracks, which focus on the
latest developments and innovations in e-commerce in the following areas
of interest:

1. Business-to-business e-commerce: adoption of IOS, technologies for
interoperable processes, and e-collaboration for global reach;
2. Business-to-consumer e-commerce: trends, problem areas, and solutions
with emphasis on emerging markets;
3. E-government, policy and law: state-of-the-art and future regulation
of e-commerce, including public strategies in limiting illicit
activities and copyright violations;
4. Business/Enterprise Architectures: state-of-the-art and strategies
for unifying extended enterprise resource base;
5. Mobile and pervasive commerce: alternative interaction metaphors that
facilitate context aware, geo-spatially relevant services to users in
novel environments;
6. Electronic Markets and Multiagent Systems: autonomous, intelligent,
decentralized systems, that utilized AI-based and game-theoretic
approaches to facilitate both heuristic and theoretically sound decision
7. Semantic Web ontologies, rules and services: decentralized
knowledge-based systems and methodologies that support the exchange of
information (including workflows, policies, services and ontological
knowledge) in dynamic and heterogeneous environments.
All ICEC accepted papers are published in the ACM digital library.
