CEC 2009 : 11th IEEE Conference on Commerce and Enterprise Computing 2009
Call For Papers
The 11th IEEE Conference on Commerce and Enterprise Computing (CEC’09) merges the two former
annual conferences of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on E-Commerce: the IEEE
Conference on E-Commerce Technology (CEC) and the IEEE Conference on Enterprise Computing,
E-Commerce, and E-Services (EEE) into a single, integrated conference. The conference provides a
platform for researchers and practitioners interested in theory and practice of technologies for in
E-Commerce and Enterprise Computing. The program of CEC’09 will consist of invited talks, paper
presentations, and panel discussions. We invite submissions of high quality papers describing fully
developed results or on-going work on the following topics relevant for electronic commerce and
- Commerce and Business System Architectures. Design principles, methods, and
technologies for developing enterprise architectures that support and reflect a company’s
business needs. Their focus may be on both, intra-organizational architectures (e.g., Enterprise
Architecture, Enterprise Application Integration, etc.) as well as on inter-organizational integration
(B2x, P2P integration and architectures).
- Electronic Commerce Technologies. Technologies reflecting the technical, organizational, and
legal requirements of the different participants in electronic business transactions. These
technologies support the phases of an electronic business transaction: planning, identification,
negotiation, actualization, and post-actualization.
- Business Process Management. Enterprise Computing relies on effective business process
management to meet a company’s business goals. CEC’09 focuses on new approaches to intraas
well as to inter-organizational business processes for any stage of the business process life
cycle: design, modeling, execution, monitoring, and optimization.
- Business Intelligence. Business intelligence (BI) refers to technologies, applications, and
practices for the collection, integration, analysis, and presentation of business information. The
overall goal is to assess the present state of a business and to prescribe a course of action.
- Business Services. Research in business services has become an emergent field addressing the
alignment of business and IT, enabling optimized business operations. Business services and
services computing investigate business modeling and consulting, service identification, service
design, service modeling, service granularity, service development, and service.
- Semantic Web and Ontological Engineering. Enabling business applications to make use of
semantic annotations for search and decision-making.
- Mobile Business Applications. The rise of mobile devices and ubiquitous connectivity raises
the issue of integrating mobile and wireless technologies into electronic commerce and business
- Security and Trust. The reliable protection of data from manipulation and theft through
methods of security is one of the prerequisites for a modern Electronic Commerce and enabling
technologies of particular importance.
- Human Computer Interaction. HCI concentrates on interactions between users and
computers by making computers more usable and receptive to the user’s needs, which has
outstanding importance in enterprise systems due to its implications on cost of ownership, dealing
with complex systems and very large scale.
- Social Networks. A social network is a virtualized structure of social relationships. With the rise
of the Internet and Web 2.0 technologies in the enterprise, we solicit work on social network
design enhancing creativity, information sharing, and collaboration amongst users in business
- eGovernment. CEC’09 addresses the for-profit as well as the public sector
