Foreword: This volume contains the proceedings of the Sixth International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems (ICEIS 2004), organized by INSTICC (Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication) in collaboration with PORTUCALENSE UNIVERSITY, who hosted the event. Following the line started in 1999, ICEIS aims at becoming a major point of contact between research scientists, engineers and practitioners on 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 world. Following the success of 2003, ICEIS 2004 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: 4th International Workshop on Pattern Recognition in Information Systems; 3rd International Workshop on Wireless Information Systems; 2nd International Workshop on Verification and Validation of Enterprise Information Systems; 1st International Workshop on Software Audit and Metrics; 1st International Workshop on Natural Language Understanding and Cognitive Science; 1st International Workshop on Ubiquitous Computing; 2nd International Workshop on Security In Information Systems; 1st International Workshop on Computer Supported Activity Coordination; 2nd International Workshop on Web Services: Modeling, Architecture and Infrastructure; and the 1st International Workshop on Tele-Care and Collaborative Virtual Communities in Elderly Care. A Doctoral Consortium (DCEIS) was also prepared and held, which enabled the reunion of a set of PhD students and supervisors, interested in the topics of Enterprise Information Systems. ICEIS 2004 received 605 paper submissions from 81 different countries, from all continents. 82 papers were published and presented as full papers, i.e. completed work (8 pages in proceedings / 30’ oral presentations), 195 papers, reflecting work-in-progress or position papers, were accepted for short presentation and another 127 for poster presentation. These numbers, leading to a “full-paper” acceptance ratio below 15%, 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, case studies 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, “Enterprise Information Systems VI”, to be published by Kluwer Academic Publishers during 2004. It will be the sixth book in the series of ICEIS selectedpapers 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 organising committee in Porto, who collaborated admirably with the steering committee. We wish you all an exciting conference and an unforgettable stay in the lovely city of Porto. We hope to meet you again next year in Miami (United States) for the 7th ICEIS, details of which will be shortly made available at http://www.iceis.org. (More)
