Purpose and Scope:

            A number of factors have recently contributed to bring the
use of the Internet as a general programming environment closer to
maturity. The Internet is already more widely deployed than any other
computing system in history and continues to grow rapidly. New
technologies, including much higher speed wide area network
interconnects and improved software support for distribution, promise to
make the Internet much more useful for general purpose distributed
computing in the future.
            As a key application on Internet, E-Commerce has gathered
tremendous attention and is of interest to managers, users and
researchers. E-Commerce has
become an inter-discipline research topic. This workshop is on issues
that are computer scientific in nature, mainly on system infrastructure,
middleware support,
security, and cryptographic. Only research-oriented papers are solicited
for this workshop. The topics of interest include, but are not limited

      Web-based computing
      Network Architectures, Operating System, Computing and Management
      Design and Analysis of Internet Protocols
      Performance Evaluation of the Internet
      Quality of Service
      Internet Telephony
      Mobile Computing
      Digital Libraries/Digital Image Collections
      Web/User Interface/Multimedia/Video/Audio/User Interaction
      Java for Networked E-Commerce
      Data Replication, Consistency and Caching Algorithms for the
      Traffic Models & Statistics
      Web Server Design and Consolidation
      Web Monitoring and Documents Management
      Internet Security and Cryptographic Issues, Methods and
      Digital Certification, Identification and Authentication in
      Web-based Storage for E-Commerce
      Commerce-oriented Middleware Services
      Software Requirements and Architectures for E-Commerce
      User Interface Support for E-Commerce
      Intrusion Prevention, Detection and Tolerance
      Agent Technology for E-Commerce
      Parallel Databases and High Performance Reliable Mass Storage
      Data Mining for E-Commerce
      Decision Making in E-Commerce Environments
      E-Commerce Application Case Studies

submitted files will print on PostScript printer that uses 8.5x11 inch
            Paper submission procedure is a web-based submission. Detail
submission information will be available at workshop web site. The
Postscript or Adobe
Acrobat file can be uploaded to the web site using the web-based
procedure. A confirmation will be e-mailed to the address author
provides as soon as the
printability of the file will be assessed.


            All papers selected for this workshop by peer-review process
will be published in the IPDPS2001 conference/workshop proceedings by
IEEE Computer
Society. Selected high quality papers from workshop will be invited to
extend and revise for the publication in the special issues of Journal
of Supercomputing and
Journal of Systems and Software.
