The International Conference on Electronic Commerce (ICEC) is a forum for the exchange of new ideas related to emerging technologies and managerial practices in electronic commerce, IT services and mobile business. ICEC attracts global leaders in research from industry and academia. It recently has been held in Minneapolis (2007), Innsbruck (2008), Taipei (2009), Honolulu (2010), and Liverpool (2011). ICEC 2012 in Singapore will feature: refereed paper presentations on leading research issues; invited research sessions and keynote presentations; and panels on emerging issues that bring academic and industry participants together in dialogue. Because of ICEC’s proximity to the vibrant international business and high-tech setting of Singapore, we expect to have involvement from business, technology and public policy experts.
This ICEC has an exciting theme: “Competing on Real-Time Data Analytics: Connecting the Virtual and Physical Worlds of Social Commerce.” Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com CEO, commented: “For every leader in the company, not just for me, there are decisions that can be made by analysis. These are the best kind of decisions. They’re fact-based decisions.” Also, Tom Davenport, Jeanne Harris and Robert Morison, coauthors of Analytics at Work: Smarter Decisions, Better Results, argued: “Never before has there been a more important time for organizations to make better decisions based on fact-based analytics. The financial crisis revealed the price of unreasoned assumptions, and today the same urgency applies to organizations in every industry.”
We encourage development and presentation of research on real-time data analytics in the context of social commerce, where there are many applications. They range from delivery of location-based services in mobile devices, to online booking systems in travel and hospitality management, to risk management systems in financial services, to e-gaming. We hope to make a unique data set available to researchers interested in using it for research for ICEC 2012. We will host special tracks on the development of research on real-time data analytics in social commerce related to our research at the Living Analytics Research Center. We welcome your contributions.
