Digital Communities in a Networked Society: e-Commerce, e-Business
ande-Government deals with the accelerating evolution in the
computerization of society. This evolution, or should we call it a
revolution, is dominantly driven by the Internet, and documented by the
novelties introduced, year by year, by Information and Communication
Technologies. The application fields of those technologies are expanding
constantly, transferring high benefits for the users - human beings
(clients, consumers, citizens) and organizations. In Electronic Business,
enterprises build production networks and proceed to expressive
reorganization of their internal activities. And in Electronic Government,
still in its infancy, practically all nations in the world - rich or poor -
search for the way to use ICT to reach efficiency and to eliminate old
problems such as corruption. It is not yet possible to foresee the impacts
for the citizen but, for sure, the old democracy is being reshaped.
The book contains recent results of research and development in the areas of:
* Business models of e-applications,
* Innovative structures in the internet,
* Auctions and e-payment,
* Future aspects of communication,
* Internet and the web,
* Advanced platforms and grid computing,
* Cooperation and integration,
* Modeling and construction of e-services.
Digital Communities in a NetworkedSociety: e-Commerce, e-Business and
e-Government comprises the papers, contributions and ideas discussed during
the 3rd I3E Conference on e-Commerce, e-Business and e-Government, which
was sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing
(IFIP) and held in September 2003 in Guaruja, São Paulo, Brazil.
