3rd International Conference on Enterprise Systems - June 26-27, 2006
June 26-27, 2006
The 3rd ICESAcc 2006 Organizing Committee cordially invites contributors from academia, industry and research from all over the world to submit their original research and/or a proposal to organize a seminar, a workshop or a panel discussion in the area of Enterprise Systems and Accounting.
The main theme of this year's conference is “Enterprise Systems, Accounting and Education: Synergy for Achieving Business Excellence”. Wide Enterprise Systems are at present the prevailing form of the transactional computing platform of most organizations worldwide. Add-on systems such as CRM, SCM/Logistics and various Decision Support Systems have also found their way even into the SMEs. Integration issues are inevitably a major concern as the core ERP system has to be seamlessly connected with specialized information systems and applications. Yet, despite ES widespread prevalence and high cost, ROI has seldom been measured and reported and ES efficiency is questioned. At the same time, both technological innovations and new business models based on collaboration and interaction over the Internet have a great impact on the accounting discipline as well as upon accountants and managers education, profession, and roles. In this context, business performance and management control and auditing systems are very important for the agile enterprise, which aims at taking advantage of the synergy of its physical, financial, immaterial and human resources. Behavioral issues are equally important and need to be researched, although there are concerns that the mainstream of the relevant research has seriously neglected computer science fundamental concepts, such as design theory and development methodologies, which could lead to the delivery of more effective and efficient enterprise and accounting information systems.
The conference seeks to investigate thoroughly how the interaction of Enterprise Systems, Accounting and Education can enhance business performance in the contemporary complex and competitive environment. As it was the case with the previous conferences, presenters and attendees are expected to come from both the MIS/Computer Science and the Accounting /Business fields. To facilitate program cohesion and organization, submissions will fall into the following areas:
Area I: Enterprise Systems
Area II: Accounting and Business Performance
Area III: Enterprise Systems and Accounting
Area IV: Education related to Enterprise Systems and Accounting
