The conference will be held from Sunday June 5th through Wednesday June 8th 2005 in beautiful Vancouver, Canada at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle.
Tutorials and workshops will be held on Sunday, June 5th. Papers and invited talks will be presented beginning on the morning of Monday, June 6th and running through noon on Wednesday, June 8th. More detailed program and schedule information will be released as it develops.
The conference is soliciting full papers (as well as workshop and tutorial proposals; see below) on all aspects of electronic commerce. Submitted papers will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. They should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance to electronic commerce, and its relation to prior research.
All accepted papers will be provided an oral presentation at the conference. Depending on the number and nature of accepted papers, there may be variation in the lengths of the oral presentations. In addition, there will be a poster session at which all accepted papers will be represented.
All accepted papers will be allotted 10 pages in the published conference proceedings. Submissions may be up to 10 pages, not including bibliography and appendices, in 10-point font with reasonable margins and interline spacing. Any appropriate format, including single-column, may be used as long as the length restriction is followed. However, if the submission is accepted, it will need to be migrated into the publisher's format/macros for the proceedings. Submissions must not have appeared before (or be pending to appear) in a journal or conference with published proceedings, nor may they be under review or submitted to another forum during the EC'05 review process. See the Formatting link for the detailed instructions from the publisher.
Electronic submission in PDF or postscript format is required. We are using the electronic submission system of Microsoft Research. The submission site is:
WORKSHOPS AND TUTORIALS
As at past EC conferences, there will be a day of tutorial presentations. In addition, this year we also solicit proposals for workshops. Both workshops and tutorials will be half-day. Tutorial proposals should contain the title of the tutorial, a two-page description of the topic matter, and the names and short biographies of the speakers. Workshop proposals should contain the title of the workshop, the names and short biographies of the organizers, and the names of confirmed or candidate participants. Workshop proposals should also include a two-page description describing the theme, the reviewing process for participants, the organization of the workshop, and required facilities for the workshop.
