IEEE WECWIS 2002 Program

IEEE Task Force on Electronic Commerce


Fourth International Workshop on Advanced Issues of E-Commerce and Web-based Information Systems

June 26-28, 2002, Newport Beach, California, USA

The pervasive connectivity of the Internet and the powerful architecture of the WWW have created a tremendous opportunity for conducting business on the Internet. The terms e-commerce and e-business have been used to describe those systems and technologies that make conducting business on the Internet possible. The purpose of this workshop is to identify and explore the technical and related technology management issues and solutions for e-commerce on the Internet. In particular, we are interested in the infrastructure issues to facilitate e-commerce and Web-based information systems. The WECWIS workshop is to be a forum for free exchange of ideas. Particularly welcome are reports on experimental work, experience with current standards and position papers addressing current and future needs of e-commerce and Web-based information systems. The best papers will be selected for a special issue of the Electronic Commerce Research Journal []
