About these proceedings


This collection of papers presented at the ENTER 2008 Conference represents cutting-edge research on the topic of “eTourism: The View from the Future”. This year's 50 full research papers cover topics such as: user-generated content, dynamic packaging, mobile applications, context-aware systems, technology adoption, and recommender systems. All papers have undergone a double blind peer review process; therefore, the proceedings represent once more the state of the art of IT and Tourism research.
