Up-to-date information on:

* Business Informatics *
Business Informatics is the scientific discipline targeting information
processes and related phenomena in their socio-economical business context,
including companies, organisations, administrations and society in general.
Business Informatics is a fertile ground for research with the potential for
immense and tangible impact. As a field of study, it endeavours to take a
systematic and analytic approach in aligning core concepts from management
science, organisational science, economics information science, and informatics
into an integrated engineering science.

The field of Business Informatics involves a broad spectrum of more specific
research domains that focus on important aspect of informatics in the context of
organizations, ecosystems and society at large. These domains include: Business
Model Innovation, Business Process Engineering, Empowering & Enabling
Technologies, Enterprise Architecture, Enterprise Engineering, Enterprise
Modelling, Enterprise & Business Transformation, Method Engineering, Service
Innovation & Engineering, Social & Frontier Technologies Some domains take
technology as a starting point and position them as enabler/driver of
socio-economic activities, while some domains do the reverse, i.e. take
socio-economic issues as a starting point and consider ways in which information
technology can provide solutions. Key is, in all cases, bridging between
information technological aspects and their socio-economical context.

* Goal of the conference series *
The goal of the CBI series of conferences is to bring together existing Business
Informatics related research domains and stimulate discussion, synergy and
integration of their respective research results and activities. Accordingly,
the CBI conferences use a format that enables an in depth discussions among
researchers in their respective domains during the conference. In addition, the
contributions and discussions among the different domains are channelled towards
a series of books dedicated to Advances in Business Informatics.

For more information on the CBI series, refer to:

* Proceedings *
The proceedings of the CBI series are published by the IEEE as a electronic
publication with its own ISBN number. The proceedings are made avalable to the
conference participants by means of a USB stick, while also being included in
the IEEE digital library.

* Reviewing *
All papers will be reviewed by at least 3 reviewers.

The reviewing process of the CBI conference series aims to provide authors with
valuable feedback on their papers, even when a submission is rejected. As such,
the CBI conference series operates under the principle that a serious submission
deserves a serious review.

* Topics of papers *
The CBI conference focuses on papers that clearly relate business and informatics, where papers typically will take one of the two as their primary starting point. Next to that, since BI is very much a practical field, papers that focus case studies are also explicitly asked for. As such, authors are encouraged to submit papers covering three tracks:
1: Business with Informatics, which focuses on topics within the societal context of informatics, i.e. the "B" in BI. This includes, e.g. Business-IT alignment.
2: Informatics for Business, which focuses on IT as an enabler of new business and/or societal developments, i.e. the "I" in BI.
3: Case studies, reporting on practical cases of business informatics. For such papers, we suggest the authors to follow the STARR structure: Situation, Tasks to be done, Activities used to achieve these tasks, Results delivered, and a Reflection on the case.

More specific topics include for Business with Informatics:
1: Business Process Engineering:
- Customer-centered and inter-enterprise business processes
- Modeling of multi-channel processes and process architectures
- Management and governance for Business Process Engineering
- Business process analytics and operational decision-making
- Tooling for Business Process Engineering
2: Enterprise Architecture
- Enterprise architecture languages, methods, management and governance
- Enterprise architecture reference models and simplified / agile methods
3: Enterprise & Conceptual Modelling:
- Modelling methods, languages, and tools
- Model management and reuse
- The process of modelling and guidelines for modelling
- Collaborative (enterprise) modelling
- Competencies of modellers and modelling teams
- Industry/domain/concern specific reference models
4. Enterprise Engineering
- Enterprise ontology and engineering
- Business rules management
5. Enterprise and Business Transformation
- Methodologies and approaches for enterprise & business transformation
- Methodologies and approaches to set up/mature an organization’s transformation
- Competencies needed to conduct/drive enterprise & business transformations
6. Service Innovation
- Impact of technology trends on service innovation and vice versa
- Interdependencies between business model and service innovation
- Managing the service innovation process
- Open service innovation and sourcing strategies
For Informatics for Business specific topics include:
1: Business data engineering and analytics
- Business (big) data and knowledge integration, management and mining
- Information retrieval, information filtering and recommender systems
- Data science, advanced analytics, prediction, causal forecasting, and visualization
- Smart measurements and collaborative monitoring
2: Business IT
