2nd International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems

Stafford, UK
4-7 July 2000


Organised by the School of Computing at Staffordshire University, UK and the Escola Superior de Tecnologia of Setúbal, Portugal, and in cooperation with the British Computer Society and the International Federation for Information Processing, Working Group 8.1.


The purpose of this 2nd International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the advances and business applications of information systems. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering different aspects of Enterprise Computing, including Enterprise Database Applications, Artificial Intelligence Applications and Decision Support Systems, Systems Analysis and Specification, and Internet and Electronic Commerce.

ICEIS focuses on real world applications therefore authors should highlight the benefits of Information Technology for industry and services. Ideas on how to solve business problems, using IT, will arise from the conference. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of ICEIS. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics, are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.
