2009 IEEE International Conference on E-Business Engineering, Macau, Oct 21-23 2009


E-Business is one of most challenging areas for industry and research communities. It is evolving from the disparate B2C, B2B and B2G systems to the integration and collaboration of business services between various information systems and e-marketplaces for integrated services. In this evolving process, integrated e-business systems and their related supporting platforms have to be rapidly formed and designed in order to meet different demands. A number of e-business 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. These include heterogeneous services integration, disparate e-business functions collaboration, and semantic level e-business messaging. So, a series of related conferences organised by the IEEE Technical Committee on E-Commerce have taken place since 1998. The 2009 IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE 2009) is the latest of a successful series.

2008 IEEE ICEBE took place on 22-24 Oct, 2008 in Xi’An, China. It attracted 251 quality submissions. Based on the received reviews, it accepted 46 regular papers for the research track, which represents an impressive acceptance rate of 18.33%. In addition, it accepted 26 short papers (10.36 %). The accepted papers represent 17 countries around the world. The 2009 IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE 2009) is a high-quality international forum for researchers and practitioners from different areas of computer science and information systems to exchange their latest findings and experiences, as well as to help shape the future of IT-transformed consumers, enterprises, governments and markets. The conference scope spans the areas of Web, databases, service science, multimedia, information systems and electronic marketplaces.

The main themes of this year’s conference will be “enabling integrated e-business systems through servicing and collaboration”, which is distributed in the following program tracks:

• Software engineering for e-business

• Data and knowledge management

• Service engineering

• Integration and collaboration

• Security, privacy and open sources

• Mobile and pervasive commerce

• Industrial experiences and applications

The conference will take place on 21-23 October, 2009 at University of Macau, Macau S.A.R. In addition to paper presentations from the delegates, the program includes keynote speeches, panel discussions, poster sessions, and several co-located Workshops and Symposiums.

The conference is internationally sponsored and supported by many universities and organizations including the following listed.
