This international conference is organised by the School of Computing at Staffordshire University, UK and the Escola Superior de Tecnologia of the Instituto Politecnico, Setubal, Portugal.--- SCOPE ---
The purpose of this 2nd International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS) is to bring together researchers, engineers and practitioners interested in the advances and business applications of information systems. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering different aspects of Enterprise Computing, including Enterprise Database Applications, Artificial Intelligence Applications and Decision Support Systems, Systems Analysis and Specification, and Internet and Electronic Commerce.
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 holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat.
We are building on the success achieved by ICEIS'99 with more than 350 delegates, 8 VIPs and a book published by Kluwer Academic Publishers (in press). Please check http://www.est.ips.pt/iceis where you will find more information concerning ICEIS'99.--- TOPIC AREAS / CONFERENCE TRACKS ---

Authors should submit a paper in English of up to 5,000 words, both by e-mail (attached file in an accepted format - see below) and surface mail (2 printed copies) to the conference secretariat (see address below). Papers received after the deadline may be returned unopened. The programme committee will review all papers and the first author of each paper will be notified of acceptance, by email. Each paper should clearly indicate the nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains or environments to which it is applicable. Authors must also indicate the topic area to which the paper is submitted.
Due to space limitations in the Proceedings, the maximum number of pages for each paper is limited to 5 (five). If absolutely needed, it is possible to increase the total number of pages up to 8 pages. However, for each page in excess of 5 the authors must pay an additional fee of £50 for each excess page.- Format of the paper:
