IADIS International Conference e-Commerce 2013 (part of the MCCSIS 2013 Conference)


The 10th edition of the e-Commerce 2013 (EC) International Conference was hosted in Prague, Czech Republic, during 24 to 26 July, 2013 and was co-organised by The University of Economics in Prague (VŠE), Czech Republic. This conference was part of the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems 2013, 22 - 26 July.

The e-Commerce 2013 Conference was a major international and interdisciplinary event for researchers, academics, industry specialists, practitioners & students interested in the advances in, and applications of e-Commerce. Participants had an opportunity to present and observe the latest theories, models and results in these areas. This conference covered both technological as well as non-technological issues related to this new business paradigm.

ec2013The following five main areas have been the object of paper and poster submissions within specific topics:
- Commerce Technology;
- Global e-Commerce;
- Online Management;
- Online Business Models;
- Regulatory/Policy Issues.

The e-Commerce 2013 received 44 submissions from more than 18 countries. Each submission has been anonymously reviewed by an average of four independent reviewers, to ensure that accepted submissions were of a high standard. Consequently only 7 full papers were approved which means an acceptance rate of 16 %. A few more papers were accepted as short papers and poster.

An extended version of the best papers were selected to be published in the IADIS International Journal on Computer Science and Information Systems (ISSN: 1646-3692) and/or in the IADIS International Journal on WWW/Internet (ISSN: 1645-7641) and also in other selected journals, including journals from Inderscience. Some of the best papers will be eligible to be extended and enhanced as book chapters for inclusion in a book to be published by IGI Global.

Besides the presentation of full papers, short papers and posters, the conference also included a keynote presentation from an internationally distinguished researcher. We would therefore like to express our gratitude to Professor Ashok Ranchhod, Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton, UK.

Keynote presentation


by Professor Ashok Ranchhod

Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton, UK


This keynote will look at the key developments in technology that are shaping the way corporations engage with consumers and themselves. The growth in gaming is changing the way in which advertisers are linking up with consumers and engaging them with the products and services on offer. At the same time companies are beginning to use the new tactile technology to get customers to engage with products and services through mobile devices such as touchscreen phones and tablets. These are creating new dynamics for grabbing the attention of individuals in a crowded and global marketplace.

The keynote will illustrate the latest ways of customer engagement, giving examples from work undertaken with organisations at the Games Design Hub at the Winchester School of Art at the University of Southampton and by a range of other companies working within the marketing and media sector.

The EC 2013 Conference proceedings were published in Book (ISBN: 978-972-8939-91-5) by IADIS Press.
