Commission Achieves good Response to the call for papers for the eBusiness and eWork 2002 conference

The European Commission has announced that it received nearly 300 abstracts in response to its call for papers for the e2002 conference, which will be held in Prague on 16-18 October 2002.

The response includes many submissions from Key Action II research projects. One of the primary objectives of the conference is to provide a platform for dissemination of results emerging from projects funded by Key Action II, New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce, which is part of the IST Programme.

The Commission has established an International Programme Committee, which examined the abstracts at its meeting in March. As a result of this meeting the first programme has been compiled. This has been sent to successful authors who have to submit their draft papers, for evaluation, by the end of April. The programme will be revised in May and issued as the Advance Programme in June. Bookings will be accepted from the middle of June onwards and early bird rates with a twenty per cent reduction will last until 31 July.

A wide range of topics was covered in the submitted abstracts. Many of the topics are of importance to the development of the Information Society in Europe. Areas addressed include: Knowledge Management: Strategic and Policy Issues; Mobile Internet: Industrial Applications of eBusiness Technologies; and many more.

The eBusiness and eWork events are the conferences for RTD projects in Key Action II of the IST Programme. Key Action II of the IST Programme is also the primary sponsor of the eBusiness and eWork conference series.
