3rd International Workshop on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures
The strategic importance of modelling is recognised by an increasing number of companies and public agencies. Enterprise modelling delivers the ‘blueprints’ for codesigning organisations and their information systems, so that they complement each other in an optimal way. Achieving this interplay requires a multi-perspective approach that takes into account technical, organisational and economic aspects. It also recommends the cooperation of researchers from different fields such as Information Systems, Business Informatics and Computer Science.
The 3rd International Workshop on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures is jointly organized by the GI Special Interest Group on Modelling Business Information Systems (GI-SIG MoBIS) and the GI Special Interest Group on Design Methods for Information Systems (GI-SIG EMISA).
The 3rd International Workshop on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISA'09) will be hosted at the Ulm University, Germany. EMISA'09 is co-located with the seventh International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM'09).
EMISA'09 in Retrospect
The 3rd International Workshop on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures (EMISA'09) addressed all aspects relevant to enterprise modelling as well as to designing enterprise architectures in general and information systems architectures in particular.
EMISA’09 attracted more than 30 participants from 6 countries (e.g., Luxemburg or Australia). The workshop was a full 2-day event featuring 11 high-quality presentations from academia and practice. This year’s contributions addressed the research areas of enterprise modelling, measurements, analysis and explorative studies, business process management, and enterprise architectures.
Two keynotes from the outstanding speakers Bertram Ludäscher (University of California) and Manfred Reichert (Ulm University) complemented the workshop programme. On the first workshop day, Bertram Ludäscher highlighted the vision and the challenges of scientific workflows. On the second workshop day, Manfred Reichert reported on so-called “fluid” processes, a new class of processes whose engineering and use is indistinguishable.
EMISA'09 was hosted by the Institute of Databases and Information Systems (DBIS) at Ulm University, Germany, and co-located with the seventh International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM’09).
EMISA’09 was also co-located with the meeting of the management board of the GI-SIG MoBIS and the meeting of the GI-SIG EMISA. This year the election of the GI-EMISA management board took place.
On the second workshop day, EMISA’09 was co-located with the meeting of the EMISA working group “Flexible Service- and Process-oriented Information Systems”.
The workshop social event took place at the restaurant and beer garden Drei Kannen where the workshop participants enjoyed traditional Swabian cuisine in the unique atmosphere of an old brewery.
