Description

Outline:
A large number of companies, organizations, and customers are exploiting the opportunities
offered by Internet-based electronic commerce solutions and many more are expected to follow.
Companies have put their databases and product catalogues on the Web, search engines allow
electronic market participants around the globe to locate potential trading partners, and a
set of different protocols are established to exchange goods and services by using different
business models and following different strategies. There is a diagnostic need for effective
tools for information consumers, who must be able to easily locate in the Web interested
information from unstructured documents and pictures to structured, record oriented data.
The effective and efficient access to the Web information has become a critical research
area. This has led to the development of new e-commerce tools and technology, Web data
models and query languages, Web site management system, auction and negotiation systems, etc.
The management of Web data is receiving a new set of challenges with the advent of XML and
other standards. The main objective of this conference is to bring together researchers from
different disciplines, developers, and users all interested in electronic commerce and
Web technologies and to assess current methodologies and new research directions. Although
a natural focus will be on computer science issues, we expressly welcome technical research
contributions from economics, business, law, and other relevant disciplines.
EC-WEB 2002 is organized by the DEXA Association in parallel with DEXA 02
(13th International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications) and DaWaK 02
(4th International Conference on Data Warehousing and Knowledge Discovery).
