their fields.

In order to establish better connections to actual applications of web 
technologies in E-Commerce, EC-WEB 2016 features an Industrial Track. We 
are looking for papers describing products or real-world applications of 
advanced web technologies for E-Commerce. Papers from companies are 
especially welcome. Authors of papers in the industrial track will have 
the opportunity to prodvide a demonstration of their technology in the 
main session of the conference. Papers for the industrial track should 
have a length of no more than 6 pages using the Springer LNBIP style. 
Being of a more practical nature, the requirements for evaluation and 
literature work are much lower for this track. Papers will be evaluated 
on the innovative nature of the technology/application presented and the 
real-world impact.


Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished papers at:

Papers for the research track are limited to 12 pages; papers for the 
industrial track are limited to 6 pages. In both cases, manuscripts must 
use the Springer LNBIP style sheet:

The selection of papers will be based on a peer-review process by 
selected international experts. Each paper will be peer-reviewed by at 
least 3 reviewers.

The proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes in 
Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series.
