EC-Web 2012 covers the following list of topics. 



e-Business Architectures:



E-business architectures leverage Web Technologies to implement
mission-critical e-business systems. 

Still there is a need for design principles, methods, and technologies
for describing the structure of 

e-Business systems, its composition of subsystems, and their
relationship with the external environment.


* Enterprise Architecture Design, Modeling, Analysis, Development

* Business Collaboration Architecture Design, Modeling, Analysis,

* Enterprise Modeling and Application Integration Services, e.g.
Enterprise Service Bus

* Enterprise Architecture Design Principles

* Architecture Quality Measurements

* Legacy System Integration

* Middleware Integration



Recommender Systems:



Recommender and business intelligence systems supporting both the
customer side and the providers side in making 

better business decision is still a challenging issue.


* Industrial application of recommendation technologies

* Consumer search, decision making and consumer buying behavior models

* Computational advertising

* Reputation and Trust in recommender systems

* Persuasion techniques and recommender systems

* Context-aware recommender systems

* Recommender systems and social networks

* Crowdsourcing and collective intelligence

* Novelty, diversity and serendipity

* Recommender system user interfaces and conversational approaches

* Explanations in recommender systems



Semantic representation of e-business and e-commerce information:



Managing knowledge for the coordination of e-business processes through
the systematic application of Semantic Web 

technologies is the focus of semantic e-business. It builds up on
Semantic Web technologies, knowledge management 

and e-business processes. Challenges address the conceptualization how
e-business related knowledge is captured, 

represented, shared, and processed by humans and intelligent software.


* Languages, tools and methodologies for representing and managing
business data

* Ontological engineering of business applications

* Linked Open Data

* Semantic reasoning about business data

* Search, query, analysis, and integration of business data



Business Services and Process Management:



Business services focus on the alignment of business and IT allowing
smoother business operations and business processes. 

This also allows for more effective business process management
approaches concerning the design, modeling, execution, 

monitoring and optimization of business process life cycles.


* Business/IT Alignment

* Business Service Analysis, Strategy, Design, Development and

* Service Identification, Modeling, and Granularity

* Service Revenue Models

* Service Engineering/Development Methods

* Service-oriented Business Modeling

* Software as a Service, Service as a Software

* Business process modeling and analysis

* SOA for business processes

* Service-enabled workflow management systems



Agent-based E-Commerce:



Agents are computer systems situated in some environment and capable of
autonomous action in order to meet their design objectives. 

Research on agent-based e-commerce has a vigorous tradition. However,
new trends and concerns are emerging.


* Agent Technology for E-Commerce

* Agents in B2B and B2C E-Commerce

* Partnership Formation and Brokering Mechanisms

* Auctions and Automated Negotiation

* Interaction Protocols and Mechanism Design

* Argumentation-based Negotiation

* Coalition Formation and Teams

* Contracts and Contracting Issues

* Electronic Voting and Market-Oriented Programming

* E-Commerce Systems and Commercial Applications

* E-Supply Chains and Virtual Organizations



E-Business Case Studies:



In constructive research, new prototypes to conduct e-business have
emerged over the last couple of years. Although EC-Web focuses on 

new research ideas, we also welcome case studies that report on applying
recent research results in real world environments, such as:


* E-Procurement

* E-Shops

* E-Tendering, E-Auctions

* E-Markets

* E-Payment

* Cross-enterprise solutions

* Cross-border issues

* Mobile e-Business

* E-commerce and e-business APPification
