2006 IEEE International Concerence on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE 2006), Oct 21-23 2006, Fudan University, Shanghai, China


E-Business is one of most challenging areas for industry and research communities as it evolves from B2C to enterprise integration and collaboration. In this very dynamic environment, software and its related supporting platforms have to be rapidly formed and designed in order to meet different demands. A number of software engineering paradigms, IT concepts and technologies have been developed to tackle these challenges. However, there are still lots of research issues needed to be addressed. So, a series of related conferences organised by the IEEE Technical Committee on E-Commerce have taken place since 1998. The 2006 IEEE ICEBE is the latest of a successful series.

2005 IEEE ICEBE took place on 18-20 Oct, 2005 in Beijing, China. It attracted more than 420 quality submissions. Based on the received reviews, we accepted 72 full papers for the research track, which amounts to an acceptance rate of 17%. In addition, we accepted 34 short papers, and 11 industry-track papers. The papers represent 18 countries around the world. The selected papers were invited for three special issues: "Knowledge and Information Systems: An International Journal", "International Journal of Electronic Business", "International Journal of Internet Technology and Secured Transaction". Similar quality of special issues will be arranged for ICEBE 2006.

The 2006 IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE 2006) is an international forum for researchers and practitioners from different areas of computer science and information systems to exchange information on the enabling technologies and best practices for e-business, to identify the emerging research topics, as well as to help shape the future of IT-transformed enterprise, government and commerce. The conference scope spans the areas of middleware, databases, MIS, Web, and multimedia. The main themes of this year conference will focus on:

• E-Commerce Models, Applications and Technologies

• Service Oriented Computing for E-Business

• Data and Knowledge Management for E-Business

• Mobile and Pervasive Commerce

• Security, Privacy and Open Source Technologies in E-Commerce/Business

• Industrial Track

The conference will take place on 24-26 October, 2006 at Fudan University, Shanghai, China. In addition to paper presentations from the delegates, the program includes keynote speeches, panel discussions, poster sessions, and two technical workshops. A demonstration session will be held for the delegates to share their research results. The conference also schedules a job fair to provide a chance for the students and delegates to pursue their careers and for the companies to discover their future employees.

The conference is fully sponsored by IEEE CS and IEEE Technical Committee on E-Commerce with the support from Fudan University, IBM China Research Lab, IBM China Development Lab, Department of Computer Science Hong Kong University and Singapore Management University.

2006 IEEE ICEBE is a sister event of the 2006 IEEE International Conference on e-Commerce Technology (CEC'06) and the 3rd IEEE Conference on Enterprise Computing, E-Commerce and E-Services (EEE'06) (CEC and EEE 2006, http://linux.ece.uci.edu/cec06/), which will be held in San Francisco, USA, June 26-29, 2006.
