ICEIS 2006 will be organized by INSTICC, in collaboration with University of Cyprus, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Athens University of Economics and Business and Cyprus Computer Society.


The purpose of the 8th 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. Five simultaneous tracks will be held, covering different aspects of Enterprise Information Systems Applications, including Enterprise Database Technology, Systems Integration, Artificial Intelligence, Decision Support Systems, Information Systems Analysis and Specification, Internet Computing, Electronic Commerce and Human Factors.

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. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as well as 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. Information concerning the previous ICEIS editions (ICEIS'99, ICEIS 2000, ICEIS 2001, ICEIS 2002, ICEIS 2003, ICEIS 2004, ICEIS 2005) can be found at http://www.iceis.org.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them. Unlisted but related sub-topics are also acceptable, provided they fit in one of the following conference areas:

Authors should submit a paper in English up to 8 A4 pages, using the paper format indicated below. The program committee will review all papers and the contact author of each paper will be notified of the result, by email. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. Authors must also indicate the conference track to which the paper is submitted. The paper must be carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling.

Authors should use the ICEIS web-based submission facility available at the conference web site, to enter the contact information of all paper authors plus the file containing the paper. The facility will automatically send a submission acknowledgement, by email, to the author indicated as "contact author.

A "blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the full paper, WITHOUT any reference to the authors. The manuscript must contain, in its first page, the paper title, an abstract and a list of keywords but NO NAMES OR CONTACT DETAILS WHATSOEVER are to be included in any part of this file.

If the author is unable to use the web-based procedure then he/she can send the paper by email to the secretariat attaching a second file containing: the title, author(s), affiliation(s), contact details, a list of keywords and an abstract.
