Call for Papers

ICE-B is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication

SCOPE

The International Conference on e-Business, ICE-B 2020, aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who are interested in e-Business technology and its current applications. The scope of the conference covers low-level technological issues, such as technology platforms, internet of things and web services, but also higher-level issues, such as business processes, business intelligence, value setting and business strategy. Furthermore, it covers different approaches to address these issues and different possible applications with their own specific needs and requirements on technology. These are all areas of theoretical and practical importance within the broad scope of e-Business, whose growing importance can be seen from the increasing interest of the IT research community.
