Internet-enabled technologies and knowledge management are set to underpin much of the value creation processes in the emergent service-oriented digital economy. This workshop places emphasis on the relevant theory, methods and approaches to systems design and integration as well as applications to key business domains.

The research areas of interest include the following:

Requirements Modelling for information systems to meet emergent organisational needs
Semantic Enterprise Infrastructures and business processes to support service integration
Knowledge Representation and Management to support mobile workforces
Ontology Engineering for digital resources management and networked value constellations
Modelling, specification and dynamic evaluation of intelligent web services
Grid-aware infrastructure for distributed computing
Conceptualisation and design of architectures for self-adaptive organisations

Key application domains of interest are as follows:

E-business, mobile commerce, collaborative commerce
E-government, e-healthcare, e-policing
Digital services in the public and private sectors
Distributed organisations and collaborative work

Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments addressed. Submissions are expected to conform to the highest standards of presentation in English.

Paper submission & review procedure
Authors should submit a complete paper of up to 8 A4 pages in MS Word (and PDF) or Latex. The Program Committee will arrange for specialist review of all papers and notification of selected papers according to the procedure set out below.

1. A "blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate this, the authors are kindly requested to provide the full paper, WITHOUT any references to the authors. Thus the eligible submissions will contain the paper title, an abstract and a list of keywords but NO NAMES OR CONTACT DETAILS will be included in any part of such submissions. The contact authors will attach the submission in an email addressed to the Workshop Secretary with their contact details in the body of the email.

2. The contact author will then be sent a submission acknowledgement by email. The camera-ready format will be enforced for the final copies of the accepted papers, but authors are encouraged to use it also for paper submissions. For this purpose, authors are referred to the two templates provided at the ICETE conference web site at one for Latex and another for MS Word.

Due to space limitations, the papers selected for inclusion in the Proceedings will be limited to 8 (eight) pages for full papers, 6 (six) for short papers (progress reports) and 4 (four) for poster presentations. If it is deemed that an extended paper format best serves the communication of the authors' research then the Programme Committee may allow this; subject to an additional fee for excess pages to cover extra printing costs.

All accepted papers will be published in the Workshop Proceedings, under an ISBN reference, in hard copy and in CD-ROM. The publication of extended versions of outstanding papers from this workshop is being discussed with established peer-reviewed international journals.
