GECON solicits contributions that are interdisciplinary, combining 
business and economic aspects with engineering and computer-science 
related themes. Contributions to this conference can include extensions 
to existing technologies, successful deployments of technologies, 
economic analyses, analyses of technology adoptions, and theoretical 
models. We welcome papers that combine micro- and macro-economic 
principles with resource management strategies in computer science and 
engineering. Case studies, which demonstrate practical use of economic 
strategies, benefits and limitations, are particularly encouraged. The 
purpose of this event is to gather original work and build a strong 
multidisciplinary community in this increasingly important area of a 
future information and knowledge economy.

*Publication and Submission Guidelines*
•    Original full papers and work-in-progress papers, which are not 
currently under review by another conference, will be considered.
•    Submitted papers should not exceed 14 pages in Springer LNCS format 
(including references and appendices). For further details, visit the 
GECON 2017 Web page.
•    Manuscripts will be reviewed based on technical merit, original  
ity, and relevance. Past acceptance rates have been around 30%.
•    Paper submissions are managed through EasyChair at 
The proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS. Extended versions of 
up to 10 accepted papers in the Computer Science field will be invited 
for publication in a special issue of the Elsevier Journal of Future 
Generation Computing Systems. For papers targeting mainly business and 
economic aspects, a special issue of the Springer Electronic Markets 
Journal with up to 5 papers is foreseen. Past GECON articles published 
can be found at http://www.gecon-conference.org.

*Topics of Interest*
