TECHNICAL PAPER SUBMISSION: Abstracts due NOVEMBER 24th, Full papers due DECEMBER 8th, 2014

DESCRIPTION: The successful implementation of Internet applications is a multi-faceted problem, involving technological, managerial, economic, cognitive, social, ethical, and legal issues. The 6th edition of MCETECH aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in exploring these multiple facets with a focus on the technological, managerial, and organizational issues. Original and inter-disciplinary approaches to these problems are highly encouraged. The conference also includes an industrial track, providing a forum for practitioners to present problems and case studies in their business.

Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings, to be published by Springer’s LNBIP series. The program committee will award a « Best Paper Award » to the best paper in terms of, 1) originality, 2) presentation, and 3) impact. The finalists will be submitted to a special issue of a refereed journal.
TOPICS: Submissions are invited in the following non-exhaustive list of topics: 1) architectures and infrastructure, 2) methodologies and models (computational models, BPM, service composition), 3) applications (e-business, e-health, e-government, e-justice, e-tc.), 4) business implications (organizational transformation, new business models), 5) social and legal implications, and 6) news trends and paradigms (e.g. social computing, ubiquitous computing, the IoT, etc.); more details on www.mcetech.org

FORMAT: The conference program includes research paper sessions, workshops, tutorials, an industrial track, and panels. This year’s edition will feature two special events:
1) a special track on the social, ethical, and legal issues surrounding the emergence and exploitation of “e-personas”, which some sociologists see as a worrisome combination of user profiling and big data.
2) an open University – Industry networking day, giving academic researchers the opportunity to meet R&D staff and decision makers from industry to discuss opportunities for collaborative research.

VENUE: Montréal is a vibrant multi-cultural metropolis boasting a unique blend of European and North American influences, and a lively mix of French and Anglo-Saxon cultures, with plenty of opportunities to wine, dine, and shop (http://www.tourisme-montreal.org
