Call For Papers


6th International Workshop on BUSinness/IT ALignment and
Interoperability (BUSITAL 2011)

Held in conjunction with CAiSE?2011

20-24 June 2011, London, UK


Nowadays, a sustainable competitive advantage is strictly related to
capabilities of organizations to anticipate the constantly evolving
business and technological environment, where business-IT alignment and
interoperability are key success factors.
This workshop will contribute to creation of a structured body of
knowledge on the existing academic and industrial approaches to
business-IT alignment that would help (a) the practitioners to better
estimate their needs and, based on these needs, to select or elaborate
their strategies of business-IT alignment; (b) the researchers to get a
better understanding of the problems encountered by practitioners and to
improve their methodologies and approaches accordingly.


We invite submissions of high quality original papers reporting a synergy of
innovative research and best practices on the following topics:

- Methodologies, frameworks, and tools for modeling, validation, and
support of Business/IT-alignment
- Qualitative and quantitative approaches for measuring Business/IT-alignment
- Taxonomies for Business/IT alignment classification
- Convergence and IT/Alignment
- Business/IT alignment maturity models
- Constraints and issues associated with Business/IT alignment (e.g.
cultural, technical, economical, legal, political, etc.)
- Business/IT alignment in organizational networks, including private and
public sector
- Case studies, empirical reports, and industrial surveys illustrating
success factors, challenges and failures of alignment

- Submission deadline: February 11, 2011
