E-Commerce on the Web Track

The pervasive connectivity of the Internet and the powerful architecture of the World Wide Web have created a tremendous opportunity for conducting business on the Internet. The terms e-commerce and e-business have been used to describe those systems and technologies that make conducting business on the Internet effective and possible.

The way in which commerce will be conducted in the future has been revolutionized by the Internet, whether it is business-to-customer or business-to-business. As e-commerce gradually permeates our daily life, many issues still need to be addressed including: e-marketing and supply chain management; legality and security; payment and personalization; and mobile commerce and wireless trading.

The goal of the E-Commerce on the Web track is to provide the opportunity to engage the world-class experts in this field to share with attendees their expertise and views of research and study on e-commerce and e-business. The invited speakers will cover a wide spectrum of subject matter including e-commerce trends, e-marketplace technologies, intellectual property rights, and mobile commerce.

There will be no Call for Participation for this conference event.

Vendors Track

The Vendors Track will provide WWW10 attendees with an opportunity to hear directly from the companies whose commercial products shape the World Wide Web that we each experience. Presentations will be technical, and focused on how W3C and other standards are supported in commercial products. Presentations that provide a technical vision for the future of the Web will also be considered. Presentations from exhibitors will be preferred, to enable attendees to engage the presenter/exhibitor in more detailed discussions.
