Paper Submission Deadline: June 7th, 2017
Notification of Paper Acceptance: July 1st, 2017
Camera Ready Paper Deadline: July 10th, 2017

GECON solicits contributions that are interdisciplinary, combining business and economic aspects with engineering and computer-science related themes. Contributions to this conference can include extensions to existing technologies, successful deployments of technologies, economic analyses, analyses of technology adoptions, and theoretical models. We welcome papers that combine micro- and macro-economic principles with resource management strategies in computer science and engineering. Case studies, which demonstrate practical use of economic strategies, benefits and limitations, are particularly encouraged. The purpose of this event is to gather original work and build a strong multidisciplinary community in this increasingly important area of a future information and knowledge economy.

Publication and Submission Guidelines
• Original full papers and work-in-progress papers, which are not currently under review by another conference, will be considered.
• Submitted papers should not exceed 14 pages in Springer LNCS format (including references and appendices). For further details, visit the GECON 2017 Web page.
• Manuscripts will be reviewed based on technical merit, original ity, and relevance. Past acceptance rates have been around 30%.
• Paper submissions are managed through EasyChair at (
The proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS. Extended versions of up to 10 accepted papers in the Computer Science field will be invited for publication in a special issue of the Elsevier Journal of Future Generation Computing Systems. For papers targeting mainly business and economic aspects, a special issue of the Springer Electronic Markets Journal with up to 5 papers is foreseen. Past GECON articles published can be found at
