 SCOPE 

The International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS)
aims at becoming a major point of contact between research scientists,
engineers and practitioners on the area of business applications of
information systems. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering
all different aspects related to enterprise computing, including
database applications, artificial intelligence applications, decision
support systems, systems analysis and specification, software
engineering, methodologies to address information and knowledge
sharing issues and Internet/Intranet computing. ICEIS focuses on real
world applications therefore authors should highlight the benefits of
Information Technology for industry and services. Ideas on how to
solve business problems, using IT, will arise from the
conference. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and
techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are
also encouraged. Papers describing original work are invited in any
of the areas listed below. Accepted papers, presented at the
conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings
of ICEIS. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and
originality. There will be both oral and poster sessions. Special
sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as
well as technical tutorials, dedicated to technical/scientific topics,
are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their
products/methodologies or researchers interested in lecturing a
tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.

 INVITED SPEAKERS 

Invited speakers, experts in their fields, either from academia or
from industry, belonging to internationally recognised institutions,
will present key lectures at the opening of each conference track. At
the moment the presence of Professor Mark Fox, Professor Ronald
Stamper and Professor Tom Greene are already confirmed.

 CASE-STUDY SESSIONS 

Business consulting companies, hardware and software manufacturers and
business companies in general are invited to submit case studies,
regarding their own Information Technology problems and solutions.
For this purpose, ICEIS will have a track of case-study sessions and
company presentation sessions. The attendance to these sessions is
free for all the conference participants. All case studies should be
submitted by email to the ICEIS secretariat. A number of invited
case-study sessions is already scheduled.

 TUTORIALS 

Any person interested in organising a tutorial should contact the
Secretariat before November 1, 1998. Proposals for half-day tutorials
(approx. 3 hours) should include the topic and scope of the tutorial,
the expected background knowledge of the participants, and a resume of
the instructor(s).

 EXHIBITION 

The conference site will have an area for company stands, where a
number of companies will present themselves and their products.
Companies interested in presenting their products, showing
documentation about them or demonstrating some application, are
invited to contact the secretariat and make a reservation for a booth
located at the conference site. Due to the limited number of stands
available it is recommended to make early reservations. In addition,
there is a 50% discount in space prices for reservations made before
September 30, 1998. Prices and available spaces will be provided by
the ICEIS secretariat.

 LOCATION 

The conference will be held in Setubal, a town 50-km south of Lisboa,
the Portuguese capital. Setubal and its surroundings are a major
touristic place, in Portugal, where the visitor can find anything from
ancient historical areas, in Palmela, to pleasurable beaches and
modern golf courses, in Troia.
