Information and Communication Technology (ICT) plays an increasingly important role in organizations, inter-organizational networks, society and in individual persons' daily life. Business activities are dependent on complex, distributed software systems operating in dynamic and often unpredictably changing business environments. It is in this context that Business Informatics Research is essential.
The theme for this conference is therefore making businesses, people and systems interoperable and adaptive in highly interconnected and changing contexts. Specifically, the conference also welcomes contributions that concern evaluating and demonstrating all aspects of benefits of information systems in the light of their costs.
Research contributions for the conference will be on aspects and future directions in Business Informatics Research with respect to the above theme on interoperability and adaptation, as well as on exploring scientifically the practical aspects and establishing empirically grounded analysis of business cases in order to provide a better evaluation to the applications of ICT in industry. Contributions from both ongoing research and implications for future directions are welcome.
