EC-WEB 2014: The 15th International Conference on 
Electronic Commerce and Web Technologies

Munich, Germany, September 1 - 5, 2014
Submission deadline: April 15, 2014
Proceedings: Springer LNBIP (DBLP indexed)

Aim and Scope
The International Conference on Electronic Commerce and Web Technologies series (EC-Web) is an established international event for presenting and discussing contributions to the theory of e-business research as a field, innovative technological approaches, empirical research, user studies, and the analysis of economic effects.

Now, in its 15th year, we want to provide a forum for bringing together researchers who are working on advancing the field of Web-based E-Business, with a particular focus on at least one the following seven areas:

Track 1: E-Business Architectures
Track 2: Data, Information and Knowledge Management for E-Business
Track 3: Semantic Web and Linked Open Data for E-Business
Track 4: Search, Matchmaking, Recommender and Comparison Systems
Track 5: Payment and Non-monetary Compensations
Track 6: Social Interaction in E-Business
Track 7: Economics, Management and Law

For a detailed description of topics, please see the conference Web site at:

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not under review for another conference, workshop, or journal. The contributions should address research questions from one or more of the areas listed above.

We are particularly encouraging

1. Contributions that describe and evaluate technological innovations (e.g. new methods and approaches).
2. Empirical studies (e.g. quantitative data on the effects of novel technology in technical, social, or economic terms).
3. Systematic surveys of competing techniques and paradigms.

The questions addressed should be practically relevant and of generic interest. Full-papers should include a systematic evaluation of the contribution and relate it to the established state of the art and competing recent contributions. Short-papers may present work supported by preliminary evidence only.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Papers are evaluated according to originality, significance, technical soundness and the clarity of exposition. At least one author is required to register and present the paper.

Full papers are limited to 12 pages and short papers to 6 pages in Springer LNBIP formatting. Please follow the official Springer LNBIP formatting instructions at

Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF format) is required. Please use the ConfDriver submission system at

There, select "Author Options" and then make sure to proceed to the EC-Web 2014 conference.
