E-Business has emerged as an important computing paradigm in digital societies. The paradigm imposes many interesting challenges to both the research community and the industry. These challenges range from the reliable integration of e-services to trustworthy transactions of e-retailing. Addressing these challenges requires the cross fertilization of multiple disciplines, including databases, software engineering, networking, grid computing, security, machine intelligence and information systems. Plentiful research issues need to be investigated before the proliferation of e-business systems. So, a series of related conferences organised by the IEEE Technical Committee on E-Commerce have taken place since 1998. The 2007 IEEE International Conference on e-Business Engineering (ICEBE) is the latest of a successful series. It provides a high-quality forum for researchers, practitioners and executives from different disciplines to exchange their latest findings and experiences. The conference scope spans the areas of middleware, databases, MIS, Web, and multimedia. The main themes of this year's conference will focus on:

  • E-Commerce Platforms, Models and Applications
  • Workflows and Transactions in E-Business
  • Management and Engineering of IT-Enabled Services
  • Requirement Analysis and Modeling of E-Business Systems
  • Dependability and Performance of E-Business Systems
  • Business Performance Management
  • Data and Knowledge Engineering for E-Business
  • Mobile and Pervasive Commerce
  • Security, Privacy in E-Commerce
  • Open Source Technologies in E-Commerce/Business/Services
  • Industrial Track

The conference will take place on 24-26 October, 2007 at the University of Hong Kong, China. In addition to paper presentations from the delegates, the program includes keynote speeches, panel discussions, poster sessions, and two technical Symposiums. A demonstration session will be held for the delegates to share their research results. The conference will also schedule a job fair to provide a chance for the students and delegates to pursue their careers and for the companies to discover their future employees. A couple of co-located symposiums are under plan. These symposiums aim to stimulate discussions over the issues related to service oriented architecture and e-Business. Extended versions of selected best papers will be recommended for possible inclusion in The Computer Journal published by the British Computer Society, and Service-Oriented Computing and Applications published by Springer.
