Call for Papers

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


The International Conference on e-Business, ICE-B 2016, aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who are interested in e-Business technology and its current applications. The mentioned technology relates not only to more low-level technological issues, such as technology platforms and web services, but also to some higher-level issues, such as context awareness and enterprise models, and also the peculiarities of different possible applications of such technology.
