The 16th IFIP Conference on e-Business, e-Services and e-Society

Conference Theme: Digital Nations - Smart Cities, Innovation & Sustainability

Detail Schedule of the Conference

About Conference

Nations are rapidly transforming themselves with how they are leveraging on information and communication technologies (ICTs) for transformation. The access to information and knowledge across the web creates high expectations from the stakeholders and using ICTs to address these needs cannot be overlooked. Hence, organisations and governments need to think of ICT-driven initiatives which will address the key needs of the stakeholders. One example of such an initiative is "Digital India”, where the Government of India is implementing a national transformation using ICTs. A major focus in such transformation is the access and provisioning of digital services (including e-government services) across the urban and rural citizens of the country through the Internet. Another such notable initiative is the Smart City projects. Initiatives, like Smart Cities, are likely to play a critical role (hence is a core component of) inurbanisation and such transformation across the nation. Other examples of such regional and national level initiatives are the European Innovation Partnership on Smart Cities and Communities and the Smart Cities plan of Australia. We are witnessing an era of smart technologies like Internet of things and big data analytics that are essential components for initiatives such as Smart Cities and are changing the way organisations leverage on information assets in the wake of digitisation of products and processes. Sensors embedded in smart devices (e.g. mobile phones, wearables) used by consumers are creating a wealth of data which can be used for social welfare.There has been a huge focus on the emergence of innovative business models, service models and offerings, through which the stakeholder’s value is being maximised.

Sustainability of the key assets of a nation, like water resources, energy and green resources, are also a concern in such technology-enabled transformation initiatives.With the emergence of such innovation and technology-driven transformation, the interests of the different stakeholders, both current and future, need to be kept under due consideration. The different stakeholders are gradually engaging in public life participation using platforms like social media. For example, social initiatives like MyGov and Mann kiBaat, enabled through Telephony, Web 2.0 and Mobile Apps, are taking inputs from concerned citizens for actually improving the provisioning of public utilities and services envisioned from the government.Public policymakers need to respond to these changing dynamics of digital nations, for creating an ecosystem which will be sustainable, resilient and addresses the social, economic and digital needs of the society.

This conference (I3E2017) aims to bring together a variety of disciplines and the research communities for the advancement of knowledge regarding the use and management of ICTs for enabling the future digital nations through smart cities and innovation without compromising the sustainability needs of the future. To achieve this goal, we invite researchers and practitioners to present their ideas and findings to the 16thIFIP Conference on e-Business, e-Services, and e-Society to be held at the Indian Institute of Technology(IITD) to be held in Delhi, India in November 2017. Theoretical and empirical papers employing quantitative, qualitative, and/or critical methods are welcomed.


The conference will be organised in the Indian Institute of Technology (IITD), Delhi, India. The IITD is a national institution of international repute and already known for the pioneering research across different functional areas. The IITD is one of two educational institutes in India listed in Quacquarelli Symonds’ (QS) list of top 200 universities globally. The IIT in Delhi envisions to contribute to India and the world through excellence in scientific and technical education and research; to serve as a valuable resource for industry and society. Located in Delhi, it has both national and international connectivity through air and trains from across the world and nationally.
