EMMSEC 99 Call for Papers


European Multimedia, Embedded Systems and Electronic Commerce Conference and Exposition
Stockholm, Sweden, 21-23 June 1999

Call for Papers


EMMSEC 99, the ninth in a series of Annual Conferences, will highlight new developments and business opportunities in the areas of electronic commerce, multimedia, technologies for business processes and embedded systems. EMMSEC is supported by the European Commission and has become a significant European event with the 1998 meeting in Bordeaux attracting nearly 400 delegates and over 50 exhibitors. As usual there will be several parallel streams, an exhibition and social events including a partners' programme. The content will deal with new technologies, their convergence, applications, business systems, commercial opportunities and potential benefits, particularly as regards smaller businesses. The conference language is English and abstracts may be for individual papers or offers to arrange complete sessions.


Abstracts for Papers or Sessions
Abstracts, of up to 300 words, should be sent by post or email - please not both - before 30 November 1998 to the address below. (There will be separate, later call for Exhibitors)

Cheshire Henbury (EMMSEC 99)

The abstract heading should state the title of the paper and the principal author's name, organisation, address, telephone, fax and email. For submissions by email, please use EMMSEC99 followed by your surname, as the subject. In the case of joint authors, communications will be with the first named author, who will be assumed to be the presenter unless you inform us otherwise.


Presentation and Publication
EMMSEC 99 is likely to follow the same format as EMMSEC 98 with presentations being allowed twenty minutes, including questions, and papers given up to eight pages in the published book of the proceedings. However, this obviously depends on the number of papers submitted and accepted. The International Programme Committee will review abstracts and the draft papers. Technical and plenary papers will be professionally published as a book which each delegate will receive on the opening day and which will subsequently be marketed throughout the industrialised world. Copyright will remain with the authors but papers will not be presented or published unless presenters have registered for the conference and paid the delegate fee. The conference takes place in the city of Stockholm and the fee will be 550 Ecus or less (EMMSEC 98 was 500 Ecus). Authors will qualify for at least ten per cent off the full fee.Technical and plenary papers will be professionally published in book form which will be issued on the opening day. This requires the following time scale
