Diffusion of Internet, web services and pervasive technologies will result in industry wide and organizational transformation with far reaching micro- and macro economic effects. The transformation is triggered by new and pervasive ICT infrastructures, products and services that enable continually new product- and proces= s-innovations. Recent innovations in new business practices such as Zero Latency Business, Mass Customisation, Product Modularisation, Enterprise Application Integration, collaborative supply Chain Management, Mobile Commerce, Custom= er Integration in product development and distribution are just few examples of deep changes the Internet and Mobile Technologies have created. Internet and Mobile Technologies affect all facets of production, distribut= ion and usage of information goods and significantly transform development-, production- and distribution of physical goods in ‘Old-Economy’= industries.

The impact of Internet based technol= ogies is seen clearly in emerging corporate strategies. These strategies recognize new competitive challenges within existing value chains that will dissolve or be totally reassembled. Competition is shifting from an inter-company level to a competition over strategic partners and architectural control. This we call competition within and between emerging Value Webs- new value chain arrangements. Value Webs consist of networks of partners and competit= ors which collaborate across and within various stages of value chain. These interactions are enabled and constrained by ICT capability where value extraction draws upon specific architectural responsibility and control.

Information Systems researchers have recently directed their attention to specific examples of these Net-Enabled Value Webs (see e.g. 2002 volumes 2 & 3 of Information Systems Research= ). Net Enabled Value Webs can execute transactions, rapidly exchange informati= on, and innovate through new business processes, and at an unprecedented pace. Accordingly inter-organizational cooperation is often discussed in terms of B2B-Marketplaces, Supply Chain Management, Virtual Organizations, or Strategic Alliances etc. Also new types of collaborative communities, e.g. on-line communities or communities of practice, are emerging which fundamen= tally have changed the relationships between producer and consumers. Information and Communication Technologies both enable and constrain these and other types of Value Web arrangements. Recently, the impact and potential of Mobile Technologies has attracted increased attention in shaping new value creation networks (see e.g. several tracks in conferences like ICIS etc. and special editions of journals like Electronic Markets, etc.) due to the need to reconfigure large portions of the value chains that will deliver mobile services. All these aspects and research topics describe a paradigm shift in value creation and extraction in the age of the interne= t.

Since the research in Value Webs req= uires multidisciplinary research involving applied computer and information scien= ces (such as Computer Supported Cooperative Work, Artificial Intelligence, Information Retrieval, Human Computer Interaction, Information Systems, Ontologies) and social sciences (such as Economics, Management Science), the Mini-track addresses primarily empirical and conceptual research. The topics covered in the Mini-track include, but are not restricted to the following subjects:

- New IT-= enabled Services and Service Architectures in and for Value Webs
- Archite= ctures and Infrastructures for Value Webs (architectural control and value extract= ion, scope and flexibility, Application Integration within Value Webs, evolvabil= ity)
- New typ= es of platforms for value webs (e-collaboration, collaborative market places, R&D knowledge communities)
- New Tec= hnologies Enabling Value Webs (e.g. RFID, smart dust)
- Standar= ds and Ontologies for Inter- and Intra-organizational Collaboration in Value Webs (web service choreographies, semantics)
- Customer Integration in Value Webs (customer knowledge sharing,)
- Supply Chain Management, Marketplaces, and Product Development in Value Webs
- Interfa= ces, Methods, Products, Service Design and Social Considerations for Collaborati= on in Value Webs
- Methods for Supporting, Creating and Adapting Value Webs
- Adoption and Diffusion of ICT in Value Webs, the role and impact of standards as coordinating mechanism
- Case St= udies and Reference Models for Value Webs in Different Industries
- Social, Political and Economic Impact of Value Webs
- Business Models and economic analyses for Value Webs

HICSS conferences are devoted to adv= ances in the information, computer, and system sciences, and encompass developmen= ts in both theory and practice. Invited papers may be theoretical, conceptual, tutorial or descriptive in nature. Submissions undergo a peer referee process and those selected for presentation will be published in the Confer= ence Proceedings. Submissions must not have been previously published.
