In computer science and information systems development, modelling is an important activity which is used for different purposes, like capturing requirements, visualizing established work processes, specifying system design, expressing information structures, defining variables and their dynamics for simulation purposes, specifying interaction sequences, and many more. Despite this large spectrum of modelling purposes and use cases, the value of modelling in general and of conceptual modelling in particular still is subject of research. Research activities so far addressed the perceived value of modelling, return on modelling, organizational change aspects of modelling and specific economic aspects of modelling. However, a comprehensive and generally accepted body of knowledge on the value of modelling so far has not been proposed.

Among the reasons for this deficit are the different perspectives on “value” and the different perspectives of what is considered as part of “modelling”. Modeling could include the methods used for modeling, tools supporting modelling, models as such or the organization’s structure established for modeling.

The VM workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in (conceptual) modelling, the value of modelling and the organizational or stakeholder perspective of modelling. We invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing projects. We encourage a broad understanding of value and modelling, including new ideas and research in progress.

VM 2017 is organized in conjunction with BIR 2017 in Copenhagen, Denmark, August 28-30, 2017

6th International Workshop on Information Logistics and Knowledge Supply for Viable Enterprises (ILOG 2013)

For viable enterprises, optimized information flow and efficient reuse of existing knowledge is part of the business strategy. In particular in knowledge-intensive industry and service sectors, information is a major factor in production processes, and knowledge reflects an important asset of the enterprise. Similarly, 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.

The ILOG workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in viable enterprises, information logistics and knowledge supply. The workshop is jointly organized by

- The University of Rostock, Chair Business Information Systems

- Riga University of technology (Latvia) and

- Jönköping University (Sweden)

ILOG is organized in conjunction with 12th International Conference on Business Informatics Research (BIR 2013).

1st Workshop on Ontologies and Information Systems WOIS 2013

Ontologies specify knowledge about entities, and their relationship and interactions. In conjunction with evolving semantic technologies for ontology engineering, representation and query, new ways open up for ontologies and information systems (IS) integration, combination and use. 

This workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in the use of ontologies in the context of enterprise information systems. We invite researchers and practitioners from both industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or on-going projects. We encourage broad understanding of possible approaches and solutions for the application of ontologies in information systems and systems development. Specific focus will be on practices and experiences, i.e. we encourage submission of case study and experiences papers, and of contributions bringing together business cases and enabling technologies.

The WOIS Workshop is held in conjunction with the 12th International Conference on Business Informatics Research, BIR 2013. For more Information please visit https://win.informatik.uni-rostock.de/index.php?id=3507

4th Workshop on Business and IT Alignment (BITA 2013)

A contemporary challenge for enterprises is to keep up with the pace of changing business demands imposed on them in different ways. There is today an obvious demand for continuous improvement and alignment in enterprises but unfortunately many organisations don’t have proper instruments (methods, patterns, best practices etc.) to achieve this. Enterprise modelling and business process management are two areas belonging to a tradition where the mission is to improve business practice and business and IT alignment.

The BITA workshop aims to bring together people who have strong interest in business and IT alignment. The workshop is jointly organized by
- Jönköping University (Sweden), Chair Information Engineering, and
- The University of Rostock, Chair Business Information Systems
BITA is organized in conjunction with 16th International Conference on Business Information Systems (BIS 2011).

PoEM 2012 - The 5th IFIP WG8.1 Working Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling

PoEM 2012 is the 5th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modeling. Since 2008, the focus of PoEM has been on improving the understanding of the practice of EM by offering a forum for sharing experiences and knowledge between the academic community and practitioners from industry and the public sector.

The 2012 edition of PoEM addresses both, the practice of enterprise modeling and the practice of applying enterprise models for organizational purposes. This includes areas such as EM and information system development, enterprise architecture, business and IT alignment, EM and business process improvement, or competence modeling.

PoEM is a highly interactive event stimulating discussion and open exchange of ideas and experiences. The conference will include keynotes from academia and from industry, interactive paper sessions, and room for discussion of ideas and opinions, aiming for further development of subjects shared between practice and academia.
