The Fifth International Conference on Research and Practical Issues of Enterprise Information Systems (CONFENIS 2011) will be held in Aalborg, Denmark, October 16-18, 2011. The conference venue is the Utzon Center located at the waterfront in the downtown area of Aalborg.

This conference is a joint effort of the Center for Industrial Production, Aalborg University and the IFIP Working Group on Enterprise Information Systems (WG 8.9). CONFENIS is a primary international event which provides an opportunity for Enterprise Information Systems academicians and practitioners in the world to gather, exchange ideas, and present original research and case studies in their fields. Scientists and practitioners are invited to address the current topics in the area or the research frontier at this unique international forum.

IFIP WG 8.9 was inaugurated in 2006 and since then the field of EIS has matured and developed. The time has now come for a more rigid conceptualization and theorizing on EIS. Consequently the aim of this event will be re-conceptualizing Enterprise Information Systems (EIS) – a design perspective.

The conference this year has a particular interest in paper challenging the established concepts of enterprise information systems and has a focus on the design perspective. A doctoral consortium on Design Science Research in Enterprise Information Systems is being held prior to the conference.

The proceedings from the conference and the doctoral consortium will be published by IFIP and Springer and the best papers will be fast tracked to a special issue of the EIS which is the official publication of the WG 8.9. Furthermore authors are invited to enhance their paper for publication in a Taylor & Francis publication on Advanced in Enterprise Information Systems. The deadline for submitting a paper is June, 2011.
