------------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS -------------------------- ICEIS-2001 3rd International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems Setubal, PORTUGAL July 7-10, 2001 (http://www.iceis.org and http://www.est.ips.pt/iceis) Organised by the School of Technology of Setubal, Portugal. With the collaboration of AAAI and IEEE (ComSoc and EnNet TC). SCOPE The purpose of this 3rd 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 Information Systems Applications, including Enterprise Database Technology, Systems Integration, Artificial Intelligence, Decision Support Systems, Information Systems Analysis and Specification, Internet Computing 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. 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 previous ICEIS editions (ICEIS'99 and ICEIS 2000) can be found at http://www.iceis.org and http://www.staffs.ac.uk/iceis TOPIC AREAS / CONFERENCE TRACKS Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS Authors should submit a paper in English of about 10 pages, up to 5.000 words, using the submission procedure indicated below. The programme committee will review all papers and the first 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. Submitted papers should be formatted for A4 size paper, and must be written in English, and carefully checked for correct grammar and spelling. No restrictions are placed on the font size and style of the submitted papers. - Submission procedure A "blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate that, the authors are kindly requested to follow the indications below: * A paper's front-page must be provided, with: the title, author(s), affiliation(s), contact details, a list of keywords and an abstract. This page is to be provided as a separate file. * The full paper is to be provided as a separate file and MUST NOT have any reference to the authors. The manuscript must necessarily contain a title, an abstract and a list of keywords but NO NAMES OR CONTACT DETAILS WHATSOEVER are to be included. Postscript versions of the front-page and of the manuscript should be sent electronically, not compressed and not codified, to: secretariat_(on)_iceis.org. Final camera-ready format will be required only for accepted papers, and will be specified later. SUBMISSION OF TECHNICAL TUTORIALS, WORKSHOPS OR EXHIBITS Any person interested in organising a tutorial, workshop, or exhibition should submit a proposal to the secretariat, before the 1st December 2000, by e-mail to the conference secretariat. These will be held on the first day of the conference.
