8th Workshop on Information Logistics and Knowledge Supply

ILOG 2015

in conjunction with 14th International Conference on Business Informatics Research, BIR 2015

Tartu, Estonia

August 26-28, 2015

The aim and focus of the workshop

ILOG 2015 is the 8th workshop in a series which focuses on approaches, methods, technologies and solution for reducing information overflow and for improving information flow in organizations. Knowledge-intensive industry and service sectors, public organizations and governmental bodies are dependent on accurate and timely information supply for efficient and high quality processes and services. Intelligent information supply has become an important issue that is characterized by just-in-time, demand-oriented and context-sensitive information. Furthermore, cyber-physical systems and big data applications pose new challenges to information logistics solutions.

This workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in information systems, information logistics, enterprise solutions and knowledge supply. We invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing projects. We encourage broad understanding of possible approaches and solutions for information logistics and knowledge supply.
