Results from IST Programme Key Action II Projects Published

Results from over 70 research and development projects supported by the European Commission's IST Programme, Key Action II, New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce, have just been published by IOS Press in Amsterdam.

The book contains the papers presented at the Key Action II eBusiness and eWork conference (e-2001), which was held in Venice, October 17-19.

Researchers operating in the frontiers of new Internet technologies for the Information Society provided contributions to the conference and the book. The book is organised into two volumes; the first dealing with human factors affecting people and organisations: management, work, learning, legal issues and trust. The second volume looks at the business factors of the supply chain, the emerging technologies such as mobility and knowledge management and the increasing number of industrial applications.

An early book, published in 2000 by IOS Press, contain results from other Key Action II projects. This earlier book contains the proceedings of the e-2000 conference held in Madrid in October 2000.

The eBusiness and eWork event is the conference for RTD projects in Key Action II of the IST Programme, who are also the primary sponsors of the eBusiness and eWork conference series.
