EC-Web 2010

After the initial enthusiastic initiatives and investments and the 
eventual bubble, Electronic Commerce has changed and evolved in a 
well established and founded reality both from a technological point 
of view and from a scientific one. Nevertheless, together with its 
evolution, new challenges and topics have emerged as well as new 
questions have raised related to many aspects of Electronic Commerce.

After the lesson learned during last years and following the successful 
edition of EC-Web 2009, for its 11th edition EC-Web will try to provide 
a clearer description of the Electronic Commerce universe focusing on 
some relevant topics. The main focus is not only on Internet related 
techniques and approaches. The aim of EC-Web 2010 is to cover also 
aspects related to theoretical foundations of E-Commerce, Business 
Processes as well as new approaches exploiting recently emerged 
technologies and scenarios such as Semantic Web, Web services, SOA 
architectures, mobile and ubiquitous computing, just to cite a few. 
Due to their central role in any realistic e-commerce infrastructure 
security and privacy issues are widely considered, without excluding 
legal and regulatory aspects.

We encourage papers that present innovative solutions for classical 
E-Commerce issues, such as e-negotiation, recommender systems, 
secure payments, as well as for new emerging areas, such as 
Computational and Search Advertising, Semantic Web, agent-based E-Commerce, 
applied Web Services, applied soft computing, information retrieval and 
information filtering techniques in web and/or e-commerce environments.

Although the conference seems naturally focused on computer science issues, 
we welcome and encourage research contributions from economics, business 
administration, law, sociology and other disciplines. In particular, papers 
about web marketing and its non-technical aspects, as well as about social 
aspects of e-commerce are encouraged. We also welcome papers reporting about

innovative applications and case studies in the field of E-Commerce and/or
Applications, like, e.g., Electronic Voting and Sponsored web search.

In order to provide a better categorization and classification of its main
Ec-Web 2010 will be organized as a multi-track conference. 
Each track will be organized as a mini-conference with corresponding
reference area 
chairs. Even though the main focus of the conference concerns the
between E-commerce and emerging technologies, with strong attention toward 
semantics aspects, contributions about theoretical issues as well as
contributions are very welcome.
