About The Conference

The Internet evolution has made our world truly interconnected and created a solid base for numerous innovative applications, technologies, products, and services. In addition, the Internet has supported many work environments to become more agile, integrated and connected such as business, health, education, manufacturing, etc.

Digital business is the use of information and communication technology in performing the daily activities of a business. This use has made most businesses more innovative, accurate, efficient, and effective. As researchers, we have more to do than observing innovations; we should study digital business solutions, technology-enabled business architectures and innovation processes amongst others.

The conference will include six tracks under the titles: Future of Electronic Business Ecosystem, Social Media & Electronic Business Models, Blockchain Technology & Fintech, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, Smart Cities & Digital Transformation and Transforming Human Resources Management.

Track description: This track focuses on a particular and innovative business model, namely social media and electronic business models, which generate value by establishing activities that can bring together important segments of Internet users, as well as their use and the effects that social media and electronic business models have on different businesses and consumers. Indeed, it has become common practice to use social media as a tool to connect, build and develop relationships and share information in every area of activity, whether for personal applications, for commercial applications and even in the public sector. The rapid success of social media is linked to many factors including ease of use and adaptability to different devices. At the same time, these instruments pose certain challenges and problems that need to be addressed. Digital Marketing is overturning traditional marketing. Some of the world’s most capitalised companies, such as Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, and Facebook, have managed to dominate the market precisely because of their technology-based digital business models and platforms as well as digital marketing startegies. Such platforms have intrinsic characteristics that allow them to attract, retain and develop ecosystems of stakeholders from the world of enterprise, including users, developers, and businesses. With proper governance, these platforms can increase the volume of opportunities to achieve success in their business. Therefore, preference is given to papers with significant contributions (empirical, theoretical, and practical). Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following topics:

Amman is the capital and most populous city of Jordan, and the country's economic, political and cultural centre. Situated in north-central Jordan, Amman is the fifth-largest city in the Arab world with a population of 4,007,526. It is considered to be among the most modernized Arab cities and a major tourist destination.



A trip to Petra!

Full day trip to Petra (One of the new Seven Wonders of the World!) 19th August 2021

Petra one of the world wonder, is without a doubt Jordan's most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago, turning it into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India, and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece, and Rome.
