Over the last few decades, e-business, e-commerce and e-government have become a key part of the global economy. As digital technology continues to develop, e-business, e-commerce and e-government are transforming almost every aspect of business and social activities, from competitive dynamics, to public policies design and implementation. E-business is not limited to facilitating buyer and seller transactions; rather, it is changing the boundary of a firm as we know it. Mobile devices are changing many aspects of marketing, advertising, operations, product management and so on by introducing new business models for companies. With the emergence of big data that includes various forms of user generated data on social media platforms, the global penetration of mobile services, and the Internet of Things (IoT) that not only connects people but machines as well, opportunities to research the innovative aspects of e-business continue to expand. We are seeing a parallel change in organizations in the public sector including all levels of governments. Digital technology is rapidly reshaping how public sector organisations produce and provide services to its citizens, how citizens participate in the shaping the public policies and how the political debate is organised and structured.
Papers in this track should be methodologically rigorous and innovative in terms of theoretical elaboration and contribution. We also encourage the use of novel research methods that take advantage of innovative methodologies to exploit digital data analytics.
