Invitation to students to participate the ePrototype Student Bazaar 2006

Since 2000, undergraduate and graduate student prototype presentations (ePrototype Student Bazaar) form an integral part of the annual Bled Conference ( attracting both Academic and Industry expert from around the globe to discuss and share “e”-related topics and ideas.

The Bled Conference Student Bazaar focuses on experiences of eCommerce prototypes developed at Universities’ research laboratories, and since its inauguration in 2000, more than 40 ePrototypes were presented. Previous topics included “Decision Support for Mobile devices”, “Collaborative Oracle Exchange Prototyping”, and “Web Application Development Prototyping”. All previous events can be viewed at the conference web site under the link “Previous Bazaar Events”.

The Bazaar is a combined “trade fair” and “poster session” providing students with the opportunity to present and discuss their eCommerce/eBusiness prototypes with fellow conference participants and Industry experts. Preference will be given to prototypes proposing innovative or revolutionary eCommerce/eBusiness solutions and new ways to its implementation, as well as new ideas for conducting business in global eMarkets.

The Bazaar is intended for students aiming at the honours, masters or doctoral level but it is not an outlet for what might otherwise be a full conference paper.

Students should submit a concise document (not exceeding 2 pages) describing their ePrototype and submissions must be supported by the students’ professor/supervisor. Prototype presenters will be given a grant to waive 50% of the conference fee and have hotel accommodation provided.

Please forward your project submission to the Student Bazaar ePrototype committee (details below)

Best regards and we are looking forward to welcoming you this year in wonderful Bled.
