BIR 2021
20th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research

University of Vienna
Vienna, Austria, September 22-24, 2021

We welcome submissions for the 20th International Conference on Perspectives in
Business Informatics Research (BIR), currently planned as a virtual event hosted by
University of Vienna, Austria.


Artificial Intelligence (AI) drastically changes the way we employ technology,
design information systems and allocate human labor in the context of digital
transformations. AI also shifts perspectives in Business Informatics Research,
which has been traditionally concerned with how different forms and degrees of
automation can support or evolve enterprise information systems. The two
fundamental pillars of Artificial Intelligence - machine learning and knowledge
engineering - converge towards new streamlining possibilities, with
transformative results in areas such as business process automation, human-
computer interaction, context-aware or capability-aware enterprise information

From its very inception the BIR conference focused on opening perspectives and
stimulating new roadmaps for Business Informatics, considering both fundamental
research and key application areas (e.g., Industry 4.0, Smart cities, e-
Government). Large scale AI adoption brings disruptions that must be met by
Business Informatics research with novel methods and tools, to ensure a triple-
win for enterprises, employees and the societal environment in which they act.

Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the Springer’s LNBIP series,
for which general author instructions are available here: https://
(check below the Submission Guidelines for links to specific templates and
additional details).

Accepted papers will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Business

Authors should consult Springer's authors' guidelines and use their
proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of
their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their
papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf
of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-
Publish form (this will be made available to authors of accepted papers). The
corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding
author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes
relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

All submissions must be unpublished and not be under review elsewhere. Page
limit for all papers is 15 pages. A preliminary abstract submission is
expected one week before the paper submission deadline. Inclusion in the
proceedings volume is conditioned by having at least one author registration
per paper and having the paper presented during the conference.

submissions should be made in PDF format using the EasyChair submission page:

BIR 2021 traditionally hosts diverse thematic workshops and a Doctoral
Consortium which stimulate lively debates on specific topics and provide
valuable improvement suggestions to early stage scientific ideas.

The BIR workshops and the BIR Doctoral Consortium will publish a separate
joint proceedings volume in the CEUR-WS series. Submission links and
formatting guidelines will be posted by chairs after the list of approved
workshops is announced.
