The Theme: e-Commerce in Smart Connected World

The theme of the ICEC 2016 is “e-Commerce in Smart Connected World”. With the advent of IoT (Internet of Things) technologies, e-Commerce expands to deal with smart connected products and smart connected services. The emergence of smart connected products and services has been changing the way of doing business of incumbents and startups, their business models, and the commerce among them itself. Firms and their executives should be aware of the change and the impacts and prepare for the new business models and processes based on their products and services. The authors are asked to find ways to balance the technical aspects and managerial aspects of e-Commerce in utilizing this new trend and encouraged to cover some of the characteristics of the theme and analyze real businesses and technology cases.
