The theme of WeB 2022 is “Digital Transformation in the Viral Age”. The past decade has witnessed an unrelenting exponential growth in digital and e-Business technologies that transform how we interact, live and work – from communication to entertainment to employment. Adoption of these technologies has never been more important than in current times. The coronavirus and the resulting COVID-19 pandemic shut down the physical world, many business industries, ranging from retail, restaurant, finance to education, were compelled to swiftly migrate into remote / digital environments in order to survive. The virus is here to stay and we are living in the viral age. As the world has started to slowly recover from this unprecedented event, the sustainability and the longevity of such rapid digital transformation is now a matter of debate. The current war in Europe has also added to the ongoing crises in the world and is creating massive shifts in the world. Consequently, global rebalancing of power is creating situations vital for leveraging digital transformation. The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum to identify and explore the issues, opportunities, and solutions related to e-Business, digital transformation, and IT-enabled recovery in the viral age.

We invite original research articles with a broad coverage of topics on consumers, citizens, businesses, industries and governments, ranging from technical to strategic issues. Suggested research topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas:

  • Digital transformation
  • Digital recovery
  • Digital inclusion
  • Innovative e-Business models for crisis management
  • Artificial intelligence enabled business applications
