This is an Era for a Digital Economy. The Web is rapidly developing towards an
environment that is physically distributed; control decentralised and run by
self-motivated software systems. This provides a unique and exciting
opportunity that could potentially revolutionise entirely the conventional
ways of doing business.

In parallel, the Internet has attracted a critical mass of subscriptions, from
both businesses and individuals, where the Internet is used for information
exchange, facilitating collaboration and cooperation, and carrying out e-
Commerce and e-Business activities. Virtual organisations and automated e-
commerce operations are a reality today. However, true autonomous trading
systems that have full decision-making power rather than limited pre-
determined operations are not available yet.

What are the relevant business and technological obstacles in achieving this?
What are the make and break factors? What business intelligences are needed in
such autonomous business systems? What types of system architecture are
suitable for facilitating and encouraging such autonomous business systems?
Can supply chain be fully automated? Are trust and security issues an obstacle
for such automated systems? What are the existing technologies that one can
draw on to overcome these obstacles? Can semantics-based technologies capture
and enrich the relevant business knowledge thus enhance the decision making
power and capabilities of such autonomous systems? Are (logical) reasoning
mechanisms helpful? If so, what are their strengths and weakness? What types
of system architectures are suitable, e.g. from a complete peer to peer
architecture to a tightly (controlled) controlled systems, for creating ideal
electronic environment for a virtual e-commerce market? What are their st!
rengths and weakness?
