Background: The annual Wuhan International Conference on E-Business (WHICEB) is an AIS affiliated conference which cover e-business related topics. Wuhan International Conference on E-Business holds annually in May, and is widely recognized in the region and beyond as an excellent and fascinating academic conference. We have successfully held seventeen WHICEB conferences in the past since 2000. Previous conferences have successful evidences at promoting intellectual research and facilitates academic and corporate networking in e-business and relevant fields.
18th WHICEB will be held in Wuhan, P. R. China from May 24 to 26, 2019. This conference aims at providing a platform for academics and practitioners to identify and explore the innovative initiatives, solutions and approaches to making the Internet a productive and efficient alternative for the new eWorld.
As emerging digital environments generate new ways of communication and interaction between individuals, organizations and societies, we need to examine the new structures, processes and operations to ensure our migration to a more reliable eWorld. We also have to identify entrepreneurial opportunity of e-business and to help enterprises for the challenges ranging from technological to behavioral issues, from marketing to privacy issues, from effectiveness to security issues. Moreover, it is essential that managers, employees and citizens take actions at both the macro and the micro levels; our discourse focuses on designing suitable organizational configurations, effective and efficient processes, new kinds of products and services, and necessary infrastructures and technologies. In this global world, we need to leverage technologies and manage processes of services and products for the e-business.
