ICEC 2008
Tenth International Conference on Electronic Commerce
Innsbruck, Austria, August 18-22, 2008

Call for Papers

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. Now in its tenth year, it returns again to Austria, after 
having been hosted in places as diverse as China, Canada, and The 
Netherlands.

ICEC 2008 will feature
* invited keynote presentations
* panels on topical issues on technology, business and public policy
* refereed paper presentations on emerging and continuing research issues
* tutorials and workshops in seven thematic tracks
* demonstration and posters
* an exhibition, and
* a doctoral consortium

The conference will be 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 
making;
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.

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality research papers describing 
the latest research and developments in the above-mentioned fields. 
Submissions encompassing other areas are welcome, but authors are 
advised to contact program chairs to discuss relevance before submission.

Instructions for Authors
Papers should not have been submitted for review, accepted for 
publication, or already published elsewhere. All submitted papers will 
be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance 
and clarity. All accepted papers will be published in the conference 
proceedings. Initial submissions for review should be no longer than 10 
pages. Papers must be submitted in PDF, according to the ACM Proceedings 
Format (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html).

Workshop and Tutorials
Workshops and tutorials provide a useful channel to report on the latest 
trends in e-commerce, to discuss challenges and achievements and to 
inform others about cutting-edge technology and methods. They are 
designed for both academia and industry, and include interactive 
sessions wherein participants engage in collaborative learning, as 
audience members can expect to be actively included in discussions and 
debate during the sessions. Organizers are asked to submit a 5 page 
proposal, including a description of topics / content, aims, envisaged 
audience and agenda.

Doctoral Consortium
The Doctoral Consortium aims at bringing together doctoral students 
within the fields of e-commerce / e-business to open their work up to 
discussion in an international forum, and to obtain feedback from their 
fellow scientists with respect to both topic-specific research issues 
and research methodology. Students will be asked to submit an extended 
abstract, structured in accordance to a pre-defined template. The focus 
is on the key methodological components required for a sound research 
narrative. Priority will be given to 1st/2nd year PhD students; as they 
are still in the process of defining the scope of their research. 
However, all PhD students are welcome and encouraged to apply.

Demonstration and Poster
ICEC hosts a demo track providing a stage for demonstrating cutting edge 
applications in the field of electronic commerce. Demo applications may 
comprise of academic prototypes as well as commercial innovations from 
industry. The demo track takes place on one afternoon during the 
conference. Submissions should describe the application in no more than 
2 pages. Accepted authors are expected to prepare a poster depicting the 
application's functionality.
