CALL FOR PAPERS for the
24th Bled eConference:
eFuture: Creating Solutions for the Individual, Organisations and Society
June 12 – 15, 2011, Bled, Slovenia
The theme for this year’s conference eFuture: Creating Solutions for the Individual, Organisations and Society serves to focus discourse and discussion on the impacts of our e-initiatives and how they serve to shape the New eWorld. Especially in the light of the recent global down turn, the future is indeed very challenging making the need for appropriate and suitable e-initiatives and e-solutions for individuals, organizations and societies an imperative. As emerging digital environments generate new ways of communication and interaction between individuals, organizations and societies we need to examine structures, processes and operations to ensure we are migrating to a more reliable eWorld. New eResponsiblities have to be taken by business, governments and individuals of this Brave New eWorld in order to contend with emerging eRisks and eChallenges. Moreover, it is essential that managers, politicians, employees, and citizens take actions at both the macro and the micro level so that discourse and discussion focuses on designing suitable organizational configurations, effective and effi-cient processes, new kinds of products and services, and necessary infrastructures and technologies in short we need the correct eSolutions so that the eFuture is indeed bright.
