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 firstname.lastname@example.org or Professor Feng Li at Feng.email@example.com if you are interested in joining the group.
