The Tenth Workshop on E-Business (WEB 2011)
December 4, 2011, Shanghai, China

New advances of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) continueto rapidly transform how business is done and change the role of information systems in business. E-business technologies and applications are also stimulating new business models and redefining relations and processes within and across business organizations. As a premier conference on e-Commerce and e-Business, the 10th Annual Workshop on E-Business (Web 2011) will be held in Shanghai International Convention Center on Dec. 4, 2011.

The purpose of WEB workshop is to provide an open forum for e-business researchers and practitioners worldwide to explore and respond to the challenges of next-generation e-Business systems, share the latest research findings, explore novel ideas, discuss success stories and lessons learned, map out major challenges, and collectively chart future directions of e-business.

The theme of WEB 2011 is E-Life: Web-enabled Convergence of Commerce, Work, and Social Life. The ubiquity of digital devices is fast dismantling the barriers between commercial, work, and social activities. Consequently, shifts in managerial principles and practices are emerging in organizations, as Generation M or the Net Generation joins the workforce. Similarly, businesses are adopting lessons learned from social networks and social computing. This marks a striking contrast to the pre-Web eras where technology emanated from the workplace with limited impact on personal or social activities. Many exciting research questions are emerging. We thus call on IS researchers and IT practitioners to explore the phenomenon and stimulate the discourse on E-Life.

We invite original research articles with a broad coverage of technical, managerial, economic, or strategic issues relating to E-Life. Specifically we are encouraging submissions on issues that include, but are not limited to, the following:

Cloud and Grid Computing for E-Services
Collaborative Systems and Applications
E-business System Architectures and Standards
Economics of E-Commerce
Enterprise Web mining, Web analytics, and business intelligence
Mobile Commerce and Technologies
Multi-agent Systems and Context-aware Technology
Online Security Informatics and Privacy Issues
Organizational Implications of Electronic Markets
Service oriented E-Business
Social Networks and Social Computing applications
Supply Chain Management
Technology Convergence and the Impact on E-life

All papers must be written in English, submitted online, and will be blindly reviewed. We solicit both completed research and short research-in-progress submissions. Complete research papers should be no more than 12 pages in length, including the abstract, text, figures, tables, and references. Short research-in-progress papers should not exceed 7 pages. The abstracts of all accepted papers will be published in the printed workshop program. All papers that are presented in the conference will be published in Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing published by Springer.
