The eChallenges e-2011 Conference & Exhibition will take place in Florence, Italy, from 26 - 28 October 2011. This is the twenty-first in a series of Annual Conferences supported by the European Commission, which regularly attracts over 600 delegates from leading commercial, government and research organizations around the world; to share knowledge and experience, lessons learnt and good practice.
We are now inviting extended abstracts (1,200 - 1,500 words) for technical papers, visionary papers, business and government case studies. Proposals to arrange 90 minute workshop sessions are also welcome. Related themes and suggestions for papers and sessions are outlined in the Call for Papers.
eChallenges e-2011 will focus on Applied ICT research topics addressing major societal and economic challenges. The program will combine strategic keynote presentations, technical and policy papers, case studies, workshops, an exhibition and social activities. The program will showcase results from projects funded at national and regional level as well as those funded by European Commission Research Programs.
Call for Papers

The scientific program for eChallenges e-2011 is based on an open Call for Papers. The conference language is English.
All extended abstracts must be submitted online by 28 February for double-blind peer review by the International Programme Committee (IPC).
Papers should focus on a research or eAdoption topic, in which a case study, initial or final results can be published. General project descriptions are not appropriate. All papers must highlight the level of innovation and actual or expected impact.
Please bear in mind that the extended submitted abstracts are double blind peer reviewed, so they should not provide contact details within the text of the extended abstract submitted. All extended abstracts should be submitted as text via a form - tables and diagrams can be submitted as part of the full paper submission in April.
Extended abstracts should provide a good overview of your full paper and cover the following headings:
- Introduction - Issues to be addressed
- Objectives of your paper
- Methodology Used
- Technology or Business Case Description
- Conclusions and Summary Recommendations
Workshop proposals must also be registered by 28 February. Each workshop proposal should be supported by a minimum of two papers per workshop session. Authors submit abstracts via Abstract Submission process, as these will be double blind peer reviewed by the IPC.
