ITeS 2013: The 5TH IEEE International Workshop on IT-enabled Services

Held in conjunction with COMPSAC, the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software & Applications - July 22-26, 2013 - Kyoto, Japan


Goal of the Workshop

The workshop aims at providing a forum for discussions and presentations about IT-enabled Services (ITeS), in order to foster learning the new developments in ITeS research, as well as sharing ideas about such developments within the addressed community.

Theme and Scope of the Workshop

The Internet is certainly one of the core infrastructures in the global economy. As multinational corporations operate globally, mobility of goods, human resources and information resources are expanding in a tremendous scale. Penetration of broadband lets the movement accelerated not only in the scale but also in the scope. Use of broadband lets services in digital form to become IT-enabled Services (ITeS). The scale and scope of ITeS are expanding. Since 2008, the IEEE/SAINT Workshops of ITeS have attracted varieties of contributors, including government, business and researchers. Participants have been multinational as a reflection of the nature of ITeS. The Fifth Workshop on IT-enabled Services aims to further the momentum of the previous workshops and cover new scope such as the use of ITeS in agricultural business practices, CGM, etc. Expected topics for discussions also include but not limited to information management, business administration with the help of ICT, innovative use of the internet for providing services, and so on. We invite not only business persons or regulators but also engineers, all who are interested in open up the frontier of collaborative development of application of internet - the application in ITeS.
