Call For Papers

The Thirteenth International Conference on Electronic Commerce - ICEC 2011

2-5th August 2011, Liverpool, UK

Over recent years, developments in the ubiquitous access to the internet (through mobile consumer devices, digital signage and an explosion of services) has led to a continued evolution in the way business is conducted. Advances in social networks have allowed more sophisticated mechanisms for connecting consumers and goods, whilst increases in wireless technologies have yielded benefits for the supply chain in general. The Internet offers unique opportunities for individuals, businesses and governments to seek new ways of providing novel services at substantially lower costs.

The International Conference on Electronic Commerce (ICEC) annually brings together the leaders of the scientific research community in e-commerce and e-business from all over the world. Having travelled across the globe from Austria to Taiwan and Hawaii, the conference returns to Europe, to the historical trading and shipping city of Liverpool, England. As with previous years, the conference will feature:

•invited keynote presentations
•panels on topical issues on technology, business and public policy
•refereed paper presentations on emerging and continuing research issues
•workshops in several thematic tracks

The theme of ICEC'11 is “Mobile and Pervasive Commerce”. The revolution in mobile devices, from smart phones that allow constant access to the network through evolving 3/4G networks, to tablets and eBook readers has changed the way people consume and exploit data. The notion of pricey, low volume software has been replaced with high volume, low priced, instant access apps that can be bought through an online App-store. Location-awareness and portability has driven a new demand for context-sensitive apps, and the explosion of entertainment and content delivery services has facilitated new models of commerce. 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 mobile and pervasive commerce for the e-commerce community.
