Venice eBusiness and eWork

e-2001 is the eleventh in a series of annual conference with over 500 delegates, from all over the world, being attracted to last year's e-2000 in Madrid. The Conference takes place from 17-19 October 2001 in Venice, Italy.
Apart from the Sessions there is an exhibition of IST technology and a number of social activities that help the exchange of information and the making of contacts for research or business collaboration. Formerly known as EMMSEC, the event's scope is now based on the European initiative in New Methods of Work and Electronic Commerce, which is part of the European Commission's Information Society Technologies Programme.

Floris Kolvenbach, Chief of DFC, member of the International Programme Committee of e-2001, will chair the Session New Technology Channels for e-Commerce and the Session Virtual Enterprise Engineering.

The eBusiness and eConference will show how emerging technologies are generating exciting research opportunities and new business ideas. This event is aimed at delegates who want to:
  • learn about the latest developments
  • exchange information and experiences
  • make and renew contacts
Brian Stanford-Smith, Chairman of the International Programme Committee, confidently claims that, e-2001 is one of the most important European conferences for advanced Internet-related Technologies. The Conference and Exhibition demonstrate the latest European initiatives in this exciting and economically vital area. The committee seeks papers that lie within the scope of e-business and e-work from leading-edge researchers so e-2001 will give an early indication of enabling technologies and their industrial applications.

The conference provides a forum for presentation and discussion of new highly innovative developments in e-work, e-business and e-commerce and issues related to individuals, organisations and markets in the emerging digital economy.

The programme covers three days and includes three plenary sessions, seven parallel sessions in at least eight streams, an exhibition and social events including a partners' programme. Parallel sessions will describe developments in technologies; highlighting results and industrial potential. Keynote speakers in the plenary sessions will emphasise future developments, market forces and business strategies.
