International Conference on e-Business
ICE-B 2010 – International Conference on e-Business: July 26-28, Athens, Greece
July 26-28     Athens, Greece
Call for Papers


The International Conference on e-Business, ICE-B 2010, 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. 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.

The areas of the current conference are: (i) e-Business applications; (ii) Enterprise engineering; (iii) Mobility; (iv) Business collaboration and e-Services; (v) Technology platforms, and we look forward to receiving submissions (both research-driven and of a more practical nature) that reflect innovative results in the mentioned areas.

Authors are encouraged to submit their work on technology-driven enterprise solutions (with a stress on the telecommunication technology), which can either represent a more engineering-related contribution or be more business application-oriented. Papers describing new (software development) methods or technological IT solutions, as well as papers introducing tools or presenting advanced prototypes and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged - papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas and sub-areas listed below.
Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions. The best papers will be selected to appear in a book to be published by Springer-Verlag.

Special sessions, case studies and tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific topics related to the main conference are also envisaged: researchers interested in organizing a special session or holding a tutorial, or companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies, are invited to contact the conference secretariat.

Keynote Speakers

ICE-B 2010 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book.
The proceedings will be indexed by Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC and DBLP.
EI already agreed to index the proceedings of ICE-B 2006, 2007 and 2008. Proceedings of ICE-B 2009 are under evaluation and the proceedings of ICE-B 2010 will be considered by EI after their publication.


Greece, located in the southeastern Europe, is a very beautiful country that offers top quality tourist attractions to the visitor. Consisting of the main land and several islands, it offers beautiful beaches, lovely mountain landscapes, many picturesque villages, and a wealth of archaeological sites and treasures.
Piraeus, Greece's third largest urban centre and now part of the Athens metropolitan area, is located a few minutes away from the center of Athens - Greece's capital named after Athena, the goddess of wisdom, is a very attractive and busy city.
Piraeus has the biggest harbour in all Greece and one of the most important in the mediterranean. At the top of that harbour, many little picturesque and lively bays may be found having many excellent cafeterias and traditional Greek restaurants and taverns.
Piraeus is an ideal place to start off excursions both for island cruising and mainland sightseeing. There are many boats that start off their journey to the numerous beautiful Greek islands from the harbour of Piraeus which is the main connection point to all of the Greek islands.
The conference will be held at the University of Piraeus, which was founded in 1938 under the title of the “School for Industrial Studies” and located in a modern building in the centre of Piraeus (one of the 8 universities in the region of Athens), in collaboration with the department of informatics. The department began operating in 1992 and focuses on both theoretical and practical aspects and advancements of computer science.
