At least one of the authors of accepted research papers and all members of accepted panels, workshops or meetings are expected to register for the conference prior to program confirmation.

Business Track
You are invited to submit a business, government, or academic panel or workshop proposal. Panels are expected to explore innovative ways of exploiting the latest eTechnologies and development approaches and to suggest new research agendas. Workshops are expected to demonstrate successful use (via prototypes, LivingLabs, etc.) of the latest eTechnologies and to lay out the directions for further research.

A special goal of the panels and workshops sessions is to provide a big picture of the eValues domain by highlighting current issues and expected future impacts of eTechnologies in regional or global economies. Sessions demonstrating successful, innovative collaborations to develop eSolutions among business, government, and academia in cross-border, cross-industry, and/or cross-disciplinary environments are particularly welcome.

Panelists and workshop participants are expected to register for the conference.

The panel or workshop proposal (1 page) should indicate panel title, panel chair and the panelists (name, position, affiliation, country), the topic and issues to be discussed.

Please e-mail your panel or workshop proposal as soon as possible and not later than Monday, March 6, 2006 to the Bled eConference Chair.
