social & management sciences to come together to share ideas and 
opinions, and to present original research work. The goal is to create 
an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge between the two 
communities, as well as to enable mutual critical discussion of current 

The conference solicits original research and experience-based case 
study papers, as well as proposals for demonstrations. It welcomes
