Second International ICST Conference on Digital Business
23-25 February, 2011 - London, UK (


The Internet and information and communication technologies (ICTs) in general are having a profound and evolving effect on every facet of socio-economic life, on the behaviour of people and organizations and on the way that business is carried out. Many existing business structures and models are under threat, and many new opportunities and business models are emerging.

Innovation is taking place in parallel in technology and infrastructure, business models and the user experience, and the effects often put strains on the current legal and regulatory environment, and the existing digital infrastructure. The event will discuss the future of digital business in a holistic manner, across the intersection of these factors. It will consider the evolution of business models, the impact of open information, the user experience of new services, the regulatory environment and the impact of emerging technology and new infrastructure. In particular, we wish to influence the emerging vision of the Future Internet from the perspective of Digital Business.

At present, there are planned and emerging developments in the digital infrastructure that will accelerate the evolution to digital business and open up new opportunities. We can point to:

* National investments in higher speed internet access (Super Fast Broadband)
* The migration of computing resources into the Cloud
* The availability of business processes and components as Web Services

It is timely to consider the impact of these on the development of Digital Business. To this end, we solicit original ideas high-quality research and position papers that analyze and discuss innovative business models, new forms of enablement for digital businesses, community-centric technologies and their role in business as well as cutting edge future internet research with the focus on the socio-economic aspects of these developments.
