E-Business SIG

 

E-Business is often presented as an all-embracing phenomenon.  Its influence on Business and Management is expected by some to spread across all traditional boundaries.  Therefore, there is a need to develop a community of academic researchers and business practitioners interested in the possible influence of E-Business on their specialisms and who are willing to take part in the cross fertilization of ideas and experiences.  All those interested in E-Business from a Business and Management perspective are invited to join the SIG.  At this conference we will organize a special session to discuss related issues and how this SIG is best developed and organised.  Please email Dr Alexis Barlow at a.barlow@gcal.ac.uk or Professor Feng Li at Feng.li@ncl.ac.uk if you are interested in joining the group.

We are in the process of approaching several journals and publishers to publish special issues and possibly an edited book.  We also welcome sponsors for the best paper prize for this track.
