Call For Papers

MOBA 2023

The MOBA Workshop aims at scientific and pragmatic exploration of organizational and business agility or Enterprise Agility as whole. MOBA tries to find analogies and the common theoretical background for model-driven studies of organizational and business agility from various perspectives ranging from formal mathematical approaches to soft skills, by which it tries to harmonize it.

The Agile way of thinking and working to rapidly respond to evolving reality and reduce uncertainty by incremental development and frequent feedbacks dramatically changed the life cycle of modern IT systems. Although methodological principles and practical tools of agility were adopted in practice of multiple organizations for improving their services and incremental design of better products, there are ever-growing challenges that need scientific inquiry, research, and rigorous solutions. Addressing such challenges, MOBA workshop aims at growing a multidisciplinary community of researchers and practitioners, which will consolidate their efforts in detecting, modelling, improving and disseminating Agile practices and theories. Different agility phenomena will be studied from a systemic viewpoint, distinguishing endogenous agility inside an organization and the exogenous one as business connections with external parties. Common principles of model-driven research and engineering of organizational or technical artefacts will ensure consistency and interoperability of the results obtained.

In order to model and study organizational and business agility from system perspective, we inevitably should join together best practices from industry, enterprise architecture, semantic interoperability, model-driven design of information systems, models validation, business value co-creation.

Recognizing strong relations between Digital Twin and Agile development, MOBA workshop will be focused on deeper understanding and modelling new phenomena of organisational and business agility when the organisation incorporates Digital Twin solutions to its structure.

Digital Twin is a virtual copy of primarily physical objects or entire systems. As these virtual elements are tested and confirmed, they may move to the physical world. The process of capturing and building the virtual copies as well as the process of producing the physical objects are both iterative and incremental by nature as one wants to constantly get new insights and learn more before moving to the next set of elements and so on.

Suggested Topics
* Business Agility
* Organizational Agility
* Enterprise Agility
* System and Design Thinking
* Tools to support Thinking
* Agile development
* Digital transformation
* Semantic interoperability
* Business rules modelling
* Information Systems modelling
* Process modelling
* Applied Ontologies
* Relational, Object and Graph databases
* Teaching Model-driven Lean-Agile Practices
* Customer Journey

Because of the strong relation of Agile development and the Digital Twin concept we also welcome contributions to the following topics in that cross-disciplinary domain:
* Use cases of improving agility by application of Digital Twins in particular domains
* Digital Twin frameworks and methodologies
* Digital Twin using System Thinking

Selected papers of MOBA will be published in the Springer series of LNBIP as post-event proceedings, which enables authors to make potential improvements based on the presentation feedback. It allows them to not rush due to the sharp deadline at the cost of quality. Papers should be submitted in PDF format. Submissions must conform to Springer’s format ( and should not exceed 15 pages for full papers and 8 pages for short papers (text, figures, references, and appendices).

Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract. A submission implies that the authors give their authorization for publication and that at least one author will register and present the paper.

Submission should be done via EasyChair:
During the submission, please select the track “Model-driven Organizational and Business Agility (MOBA23)” on the EasyChair CAiSE23 submission page.
