*** Call for Papers ***

The International Conference on Electronic Commerce (ICEC) provides a forum
for the top of the scientific

research community in e-commerce from all over the world annually. After
holding the conference in Canada,

USA, and Austria in the past three years, we are returning to Asia and
hosting ICEC'09 in Taipei, Taiwan.


ICEC'09 will feature invited keynote presentations, panels on topical issues
on technology, business, and public

policy, refereed paper presentations on emerging and continuing research
issues, and tutorials on new areas of

service science and management.


The theme of ICEC'09 is "Service Innovations for E-commerce." Along with ICT
enhancement and business

integration, e-commerce has become common practices for many business
transactions. It has emerged with

business processes to deliver values to internal and external customers. The
demand of customer-centric

services requires innovative approaches to identify customer needs, and
design effective processes to deliver

values to customers, especially facing the increasing number of Web-based
applications (e.g., Web 2.0). Thus,

the study of the innovation in services for e-commerce will become the next
wave of e-commerce research and

practices. This conference aims to facilitate the dialogues among experts in
academic and industries to

exchange insights in related issues, and hopefully boost up research
momentum across disciplines to contribute

to service innovations for e-commerce.


The conference will be organized into several tracks but not limited to
these topics:

+ Service Innovations and Strategies

+ Emerging Electronic Commerce Technologies and Applications

+ Mobile Commerce

+ E-Government and Standardization

+ Digital Content Technologies, Management, and Innovations

+ Web Mining, Virtual Communities, and Knowledge Sharing

+ Internet Security, Privacy, and Trust


ICEC'09 encourages submission of high-quality papers in all e-commerce
related areas. Submitted papers

should not have been submitted for review, accepted for publication, or
already published elsewhere. Papers

will be reviewed on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance
and clarity. All accepted papers will

be published in the conference proceedings. Selected best papers will be
invited for submission to special issues

in some distinguished e-commerce related journals.



*** Paper Submission ***

Papers should be no longer than 10 pages and submitted in PDF, according to
the ACM Proceedings Format

( All papers must be
submitted electronically using the

conference's online submission system available at 


For any inquiries related to paper submission, please contact Chris Yang
( or 

Fu-Ren Lin ( Proceedings of ICEC'09 will be
published in portal. 

The ICEC conference is the companion of the international journal,
Electronic Commerce Research and Applications

(Elsevier, SSCI, and SCIE accredited), as linked at



*** Call for tutorials ***

In addition to the regular research program, ICEC'09 invites proposals for
tutorials to be held at the conference

hotel of ICEC'09 on August 12, 2009. The Tutorial Track is a
multi-dimensional channel aiming to share a

wide variety of industry and educational knowledge and experiences. A
tutorial should present the state of the

art of an e-commerce area enabling attendees to fully appreciate the latest
trends, current issues, main schools of

thought, and cutting-edge technology. Tutorials can be created to discuss
the challenges and achievements of

new technologies and e-business applications, educating students, and
transferring and creating new knowledge

between academia and industry.


Proposals can be any topic related to e-commerce and issues related to the
theme of the conferences are particularly welcome. 

Proposals for tutorials should include:

1. Title of the tutorial.

2. Description of topic(s) and content(s) of the tutorial.

3. Detailed contact information of the tutorial presenter(s).

4. Length (half day or 1.5 hours) of the proposed tutorial.

5. Short description of the audience to which the tutorial is addressed.

6. Schedule and agenda of the tutorial.

7. Resources (other than room) required to be provided by the conference
