Call For Papers

Tenth ACM Conference on Electronic Commerce (EC'09)

July 6-10, 2009 Stanford, California, USA

Since 1999 the ACM Special Interest Group on Electronic Commerce
(SIGecom) has sponsored the leading scientific conference on advances in
theory, systems, and applications for electronic commerce. The Tenth ACM
Conference on Electronic Commerce (EC'09) will feature invited speakers,
paper presentations, workshops, and tutorials covering all areas of
electronic commerce.

The natural focus of the conference is on computer science issues, but
the conference is interdisciplinary in nature, addressing research
related to (but not limited to) the following topics:

* Applications and Empirical Studies, including
o Prediction/information markets
o Experience with e-commerce systems and markets
o Economic approaches to spam control
o Pricing for quality of service
o Web analysis and characterization for e-commerce
o Open access publishing
o User contributed content
o Economics of online textual content
o Behavioral and experimental economics related to e-commerce

* Theory and Foundations, including
o Computational aspects of economics, game theory, finance, and voting
o Automated mechanism design, including computational pricing
o Algorithmic mechanism design
o Auction and negotiation technology
o Formation of supply chains, coalitions, and virtual enterprises
o Agency and contract theory in e-commerce
o Game-theoretic aspects of network formation on the Internet
o Preferences and decision theory
o Economics of information

* Architectures and Languages, including
o Peer-to-peer, grid, and other open distributed systems
o Mobile commerce
o Software and systems requirements, architectures, and performance
o Languages for describing agents, goods, services, and contracts

* Automation, Personalization, and Targeting, including
o AI and autonomous agent systems in e-commerce
o Automated shopping, trading, and contract management
o Recommendation, reputation, and trust systems
o Advertising and marketing technology
o Sponsored web search, viral marketing
o Databases and data mining
o Machine learning for e-commerce applications
o Mobile and location-based services
o Search and information retrieval for e-commerce

* Security, Privacy, Encryption, and Digital Rights, including
o Intellectual property and digital rights management
o Digital payment systems
o Authentication
o Privacy-enhancing technologies
o Economics of information security and privacy

* Social factors, including
o Usability of e-commerce systems
o Human factors in security and privacy
o Human factors in agents and mechanism design for e-commerce
o Legal, policy, and social issues

The conference will be held from Monday July 6th through Friday July
10th in the Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center at Stanford University,
Palo Alto, Calfornia. Tutorials and workshops will be held on Monday
July 6th and Wednesday July 7th, 2009. Accepted technical papers and
invited talks will be presented from Wednesday July 8th through Friday
July 10th, 2009. This conference is co-located with the TARK XII
conference (Theoretical Aspects of Rationality and Knowledge) at
Stanford on July 6-8, 2009.


The conference is soliciting full papers (as well as workshop and
tutorial proposals; see below) on all aspects of electronic commerce.
Submitted papers will be evaluated on significance, originality,
technical quality, and exposition. They should clearly establish the
research contribution, its relevance to electronic commerce, and its
relation to prior research. Submissions to be considered for publication
in the archival ACM proceedings may be up to 10 pages (including the
bibliography), in 10-point font, double-column format, with reasonable
margins and interline spacing. Additional details may be included in
appendices beyond the 10 page limit but will only be read at the
discretion of the reviewers. These submissions must not have appeared
before (or be pending to appear) in a journal or conference with
published proceedings. All accepted submissions will need to be migrated
to the publisher's format/macros for the proceedings. Instructions will
be given by the publisher after the paper is accepted. Accepted papers
will be presented at the conference in one of two formats: (1) a long
oral presentation or (2) a short oral presentation coupled with
placement in a poster session. Presentation format will be chosen by the
program committee with the goal of encouraging breadth and diversity
among oral presentations. Presentation format will have no bearing on
how papers appear in the archival conference proceedings: all accepted
papers will be allotted 10 pages in the proceedings. To accommodate the
publishing traditions of different fields, authors may instead submit
working papers that are under review or nearly ready for journal review.
These submissions will be subject to review and considered for
presentation at the conference but only a one page abstract will appear
in the proceedings with a URL that points to the full paper and that
will be reliable for at least two years. Open access is preferred
although the paper can be hosted by a publisher who takes copyright and
limits access, as long as there is a link to the location. Electronic
submission in is required. Details on the submission procedure will be
made available on the main conference web page.


The conference is soliciting proposals for tutorials and workshops to be
held in conjunction with the conference. Tutorial proposals should
contain the title of the tutorial, a two-page description of the topic
matter, the names and short biographies of the tutor(s), and
dates/venues where earlier versions of the tutorial were given (if any).
Workshop proposals should contain the title of the workshop, the names
and short biographies of the organizers, and the names of confirmed or
candidate participants. Workshop proposals should also include a
two-page description describing the theme, the reviewing process for
participants, the organization of the workshop, and required facilities
for the workshop. Informal suggestions for workshop or tutorial ideas
can also be sent without a full proposal to the workshop and tutorial
chairs at any time. Submission information can be found on the
conference website.
