Conference Aim and Scope

Scope

GECON 2019 builds upon the very successful tradition of the conference previous editions since 2003, (http://www.gecon-conference.org). GECON solicits contributions that are interdisciplinary, combining business and economic aspects with engineering and computer science related themes. Contributions to this conference can include extensions to existing technologies, successful deployments of technologies, economic analyses, analyses of technology adoptions, and theoretical models. We welcome papers that combine micro- and macro-economic principles with resource management strategies in computer science and engineering. Case studies, which demonstrate practical use of economic strategies, benefits and limitations, are particularly encouraged. The purpose of this event is to gather original work and build a strong multidisciplinary community in this increasingly important area of a future information and knowledge economy.

This year, for the first time, GECON will include a poster session. Posters may be submitted directly to the poster session. In addition, to improve work exposure and human interaction,  any accepted paper and paper-in-progress is entitled and encouraged to present a poster.

General Topics of interest

Advances in distributed systems technology have allowed for the provisioning of IT services on an unprecedented scale and with increasing flexibility. As a global market for infrastructures, platforms and software services emerge the need to understand and deal with these implications, and a multitude of new interdisciplinary challenges is quickly growing. Therefore, GECON encourages the submission of papers which combine at least one economic/legal area and one technologic area.

GECON’s list of areas includes, but is not limited to:
