Track 1: e-Business Architectures:
E-business architectures leverage Web Technologies to implement mission-critical e-business systems. Still there is a need for design principles, methods, and technologies for describing the structure of e-Business systems, its composition of subsystems, and their relationship with the external environment.

- Enterprise Architecture Design, Modeling, Analysis, Development
- Business Collaboration Architecture Design, Modeling, Analysis, Development
- Enterprise Modeling and Application Integration Services, e.g. Enterprise Service Bus
- Enterprise Architecture Design Principles
- Architecture Quality Measurements
- Legacy System Integration
- Middleware Integration


Track 2: Semantic e-business:
Managing knowledge for the coordination of e-business processes through the systematic application of Semantic Web technologies is the focus of semantic e-business. It builds up on Semantic Web technologies, knowledge management and e-business processes. Challenges address the conceptualization how e-business related knowledge is captured, represented, shared, and processed by humans and intelligent software.

- Languages, tools and methodologies for representing and managing business data
- Ontological engineering of business applications
- Semantic reasoning about business data
- Information extraction for business applications
- Search, query, analysis, and integration of business data


Track 3: Business Services and Process Management:
Business services focus on the alignment of business and IT allowing smoother business operations and business processes. This also allows for more effective business process management approaches concerning the design, modeling, execution, monitoring and optimization of business process life cycles.

- Business/IT Alignment
- Business Service Analysis, Strategy, Design, Development and Deployment
- Service Identification, Modeling, and Granularity
- Service Revenue Models
- Service Engineering/Development Methods
- Service-oriented Business Modeling
- Software as a Service, Service as a Software
- Business process modeling and analysis
- SOA for business processes
- Service-enabled workflow management systems


Track 4: Cloud Transition Management:
The projected benefits of the cloud computing paradigm are very compelling: leveraging economies of scale, automated ad-hoc service deployment, low capital expenses, variable pricing schemes, to name only a few. However, their actual realization and current adoption rates are far from being well-achieved. Enabling corporations to implement efficient new business models utilizing ecosystems of services delivered over the cloud poses a range of interesting management challenges.

- Economics of Cloud services
- Markets and marketplaces for cloud services
- Quality of cloud services
- Service pricing and contracting models
- Monitoring and performance prediction of cloud infrastructures
- KPIs and Cloud Governance
- Migration and evolution of enterprise applications in clouds
- IT Service Management Processes in Cloud Infrastructures
- Virtualization and provisioning strategies
- Capacity planning and automated resource allocation


Track 5: Recommender Systems:
Recommender systems support both customers and providers in making better business decisions. New trends and challenges are emerging.

- Industrial application of recommendation technologies
- Consumer decision making and consumer buying behavior models
- Computational advertising
- Reputation and Trust in recommender systems
- Context-aware recommender systems
- Recommender systems and social networks
- Diversification of recommendations and Serendipity
- Recommender system user interfaces and conversational approaches
- Explanations in recommender systems
- Evaluation of recommender systems


Track 6: Agent-based E-Commerce:
Agents are computer systems situated in some environment and capable of autonomous action in order to meet their design objectives. Research on agent-based e-commerce has a vigorous tradition. However, new trends and concerns are emerging.

- Agent Technology for E-Commerce
- Agents in B2B and B2C E-Commerce
- Partnership Formation and Brokering Mechanisms
- Auctions and Automated Negotiation
- Interaction Protocols and Mechanism Design
- Argumentation-based Negotiation
- Coalition Formation and Teams
- Contracts and Contracting Issues
- Electronic Voting and Market-Oriented Programming
