The Sixth MCETECH Conference of E-Technologies 2015 (MCETECH2015)
May 12-15, 2015, Montreal (Quebec) Canada

Conference Website: http://www.mcetech.org   

The Internet pervades many of the activities of modern societies and has become the preferred medium for the delivery of information and services. The successful implementation of Internet applications, ranging from online commercial transactions to online education is a multi-faceted problem, involving technological, managerial, economic, cognitive, social, ethical, and legal is-sues. The sixth edition of this conference aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in exploring the many facets of Internet applications and technologies, with a focus on the technological, managerial, organizational, and social issues. Original and inter-disciplinary approaches to these problems are highly encouraged. Authors focusing on the technological aspects are encouraged to highlight economic, managerial, organizational, social, or legal/ethical implications of their work. Conversely, authors focusing on the economic, managerial, organizational, social, legal, and ethical aspects are encouraged to highlight the technological dimension, both as part of the problem or part of the solution. The conference also includes an industrial track, providing a forum for practitioners to present problems and case studies of the uses of Internet technologies in their business.

MCETECH2015 will feature a special track on the social, ethical, and legal issues surrounding the emergence and exploitation of “e-personas”, which some sociologists see as a worrisome combination of user profiling and big data.

All accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer Verlag Lecture Notes on Business Information Processing, and will be searchable through the main online indices.

The program committee will award a Best Paper Award to the best paper in terms of, 1) originality, 2) presentation, and 3) impact. The finalists will be submitted to a special issue of a refereed journal. Members of the program committee will shepherd these papers through the review process.
