Foreword: This volume contains the proceedings of the Eighth International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2006), organized by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) in collaboration with the University of Cyprus, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Athens University of Economics and Business and Cyprus Computer Science. ICEIS has become a major point of contact between research scientists, engineers and practitioners in the area of business applications of information systems. This year, five simultaneous tracks were held, covering different aspects related to enterprise computing, including: “Databases and Information Systems Integration”, “Artificial Intelligence and Decision Support Systems”, “Information Systems Analysis and Specification”, “Software Agents and Internet Computing” and “Human-Computer Interaction”. All tracks focus on real world applications and highlight the benefits of Information Systems and Technology for industry and services, thus making a bridge between the Academia and the Enterprise worlds. Following the success of 2005, ICEIS 2006 also has a number of satellite workshops, related to the field of the conference. This year we collaborated in the organization of the following ten international workshops: 6th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Information Systems; 5th International Workshop on Wireless Information Systems; 4th International Workshop on Modelling, Simulation, Verification and Validation of Enterprise Information Systems; 3rd International Workshop on Natural Language Understanding and Cognitive Science; 3rd International Workshop on Ubiquitous Computing; 4th International Workshop on Security In Information Systems; 3rd International Workshop on Computer Supported Activity Coordination, the 4th International Workshop on Web Services and Grid Computing, the 2nd International Workshop on Model-Driven Enterprise Information Systems and the 1st International Workshop on Technologies for Collaborative Business Processes. ICEIS 2006 received 429 paper submissions from more than 40 countries in all continents. 65 papers were published and presented as full papers, i. e. completed work (8 pages in proceedings / 30’ oral presentations), 105 papers, reflecting work-in-progress or position papers, were accepted for short presentation and another 85 for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a “full-paper” acceptance ratio below 16%, and a total acceptance ratio below 60%, show the intention of preserving a high quality forum for the next editions of this conference. Additionally, as usual in the ICEIS conference series, a number of invited talks, including keynote lectures and technical tutorials were also held. These special sessions, presented by internationally recognized specialists in different areas have definitely contributed to increase the overall quality of the Conference and to provide a deeper understanding of the Enterprise Information Systems field. A short list of papers will be selected for a book, entitled “Enterprise Information Systems VIII”, to be published by Springer. It will be the eighth book in the series of ICEIS selected-papers books. The program for this conference required the dedicated effort of many people. Firstly, we must thank the authors, whose research and development efforts are recorded here. Secondly, we thank the members of the program committee and the additional reviewers for their diligence and expert reviewing. Thirdly, we thank the invited speakers for their invaluable contribution and for taking the time to synthesise and prepare their talks. Fourthly, we thank the workshop chairs whose collaboration with ICEIS was much appreciated. Finally, special thanks to all the members of the local organising committee, especially Panicos Masouras, whose collaboration was fundamental for the success of this conference. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in the lovely city of Paphos. We hope to meet you again next year for the 9th ICEIS, to be held in Portugal, details of which are available at http://www.iceis.org. (More)
