Call for Papers

ICSBT is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication


The International Conference on Smart Business Technologies (formerly known as ICE-B - International Conference on e-Business), aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners who work on e-Business technology and its applications. The scope of the conference covers low-level technological issues, such as technology platforms, internet of things, artificial intelligence, data science and web services, but also higher-level issues, such as business processes, business intelligence, digital twins, value setting and business strategy. Furthermore, it covers different research approaches (like qualitative cases, experiments, forecasts, and simulations) to address these issues and different possible application domains (like manufacturing, service management and trade systems) with their own specific needs and requirements. We invite both more academic and practical oriented submissions, but we are especially interested in academic research with a potential practical impact and practical research papers with theoretical implications.


Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics, although authors should not feel limited by them.

The conference will take place at the campus of ESEO Dijon which is located in the beautiful and historical city of Dijon in France. Dijon is considered to be one of the most beautiful historical towns in France, with its remarkable architectural heritage shaped by history

The half-timbered houses, the Romanesque and Gothic churches and the 17th- and 18th-century private mansions majestically highlight the Medieval streets of the former capital of the Dukes of Burgundy.
