14th International Workshop on Enterprise Modeling and Information Systems Architecture

Potsdam, Germany, 13 & 14 March 2024

New information technologies enable enterprises to innovate their core activities, from their information systems, via their business processes, to their business models. These innovations pose design and engineering challenges which, in their turn, result in several research challenges for the fields of enterprise modelling and information systems architectures. At the same time, the new information technologies also provide new opportunities to support the work involved in (continuous) design and engineering of enterprises and their information systems.

EMISA 2024 is the 14th international workshop in a series that provides a key forum for researchers and practitioners in the field on design methods for information systems. The workshop series emphasizes the need for a coherent view on this field, fostering integrated approaches that address and relate all relevant aspects of enterprises (e.g., value propositions, business services, business processes, business rules, information systems, IT infrastructures), cross-cutting concerns (e.g. security, privacy, compliance) across stakeholders, designers, engineers, and domain experts. The workshop is organized by the GI Special Interest Group on Design Methods for Information Systems (GI-SIG EMISA), which provides a forum for researchers from various disciplines who develop and apply methods to support the analysis and design of information systems.

EMISA 2024 will also involve a working session to discuss future research directions as well as possible future joint (EU, or multilaterally funded) research projects. This session will be organized in collaboration with the EMISA and MobIS (Modelling of Business Information Systems) special interests groups of the GI, as well as the IFIP 8.1 working group on Design and Evaluation of Information Systems.


The workshop is open to a broad range of subjects. Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

EMISA 2024 calls for submissions in the following categories:

  1. PhD Research Proposal (short paper of up to 5 pages): There will be a dedicated slot in the program to discuss PhD research proposals including the current status and the further plan of the research work. Note that the three best submissions in this category are awarded a travel grant up to 600€ by the GI-SIG EMISA.
  2. Current Research Talk Proposal (extended abstract of up to 2 pages): Proposals for scientific talks of international excellence. Eligible are proposal submissions that are based on published or accepted papers from international conferences or journals.
  3. Novel Directions Talk Proposals (short paper of up to 6 pages): Proposals for talks that motivate a novel research direction, outline the research gaps to address, and carve out major challenges. These talks shall serve as a stimulus for discussions as part of a dedicated slot in the workshop program.

Any manuscript should be submitted to EasyChair. You will have to choose the category as a topic during the submission process in EasyChair. Please, select exactly one of the topics for indicating whether you are submitting for the category PhD Research Proposals, Current Research Talk Proposals, Novel Direction Talk Proposals or Case Report.


The extended abstracts of the Current Research Talks will be published in the Digital Library of the GI (Template). The short papers of PhD Research Proposals and Novel Directions Talk, are aimed to be published as an electronic CEUR proceedings volume (Overleaf/ZIP one column).
