E-BAG 2008 : First International Workshop on Web Information Systems Engineering for Electronic Businesses and Governments
Conference Series : Web Information Systems Engineering for Electronic Businesses and Governments
Call For Papers
Web-based information systems offer tremendous opportunities for both business and governments. The Web has provided new possibilities for companies to communicate and engage in business, and for governments to exchange information and services with citizens and organisations. On one hand, the implementation of individual objectives in E-Commerce and E-Government demand new Web technologies and original methodologies for engineering quality information systems. On the other hand, technological and methodological advances can reveal new openings to conduct electronic business or improve the efficiency, convenience, and accessibility of public services.
The main purpose of this workshop is to assess current approaches, techniques and practices by which web information systems implement the objectives of electronic businesses and governments. We aim at bringing together researchers and practitioners that are interested in exchanging experiences and ideas about utilising/engineering Web information systems for the purpose of E-Business and E-Government.
Topics of Interest
We invite original, previously unpublished, contributions to the adaptation, design and use of web information systems for E-Business and E-Government. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to the following ones:
* Principles and Foundations;
* Languages and Models;
* Challenges and Issues;
* Management and Strategy;
* Semantic Web;
* Retrieval and Search;
* Integration and Mediation;
* Mining and Discovery;
* Privacy, Security and Trust;
* Social, Cultural and Consumer Aspects;
* Training and Education;
* Mobility and Ubiquitousness;
* Preservation and Quality;
* Law and Ethics; and
* Case Studies.
The proceedings of E-BAG 2008 will be published in a volume by Springer in its Lecturer Notes in Computer Science series, together with all papers accepted by the other WISE 2008 workshops. Refer to http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for style files and details. The page limit for workshop papers in LNCS format is 10 pages.
A paper submitted to E-BAG 2008 cannot be under review for any other workshop, symposium, conference, or journal during the time it is being considered for E-BAG 2008.
Submission to E-BAG 2008 will be electronically only. Authors are asked to create a submission system account first. Subsequently, this account can be used to submit one or more abstracts and upload corresponding papers.
* The online submission system will be available from mid March 2008.
