The 12th IEEE Conference on Commerce and Enterprise Computing (CEC' 10) 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 E-Commerce and Enterprise Computing. The program of CEC' 10 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 enterprise computing:
- 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' 10 focuses on new approaches to intra as 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 system architectures.
- 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 environments.
CEC' 10 addresses the for-profit as well as the public sector
- Cloud Computing
Cloud computing has become an important research issue in the past few years. It provides a pervasive infrastructure to deliver, share and consume computing and application hardware resource as services. The supporting techniques of cloud computing are emerging. Papers for topics related to Cloud service standards, storage and computing techniques, infrastructure services, application services, and cloud computing business model are welcome.
- Software as a Service (SaaS)
Traditionally, enterprise systems are delivered as software packages that are considered cost-intensive, in-flexible and often result in a vendor lock-in. SaaS provides an alternative way of deploying enterprise software on-demand using the utility model, without upfront cost and long term commitment. SaaS approaches with respect to architecture, deployment, enterprise mash-ups, configurability, scalability and licensing are of particular interest to us.
- Enterprise Green Computing and Energy Trading
ICT approaches to facilitate enterprise to manage and reduce energy consumptions and models for energy trading.
