Sensing Enterprise Systems @ ECIS 2016 - Istanbul, 12-16 June 2016


* * *  Cfp: ECIS 2016 Workshop on "Sensing Enterprise Systems"  * * *


In today's world, businesses are constantly challenged and have to change permanently due to economic and political crises, lack of resources, environmental changes, and ever changing social systems. Therefore enterprises need new ways to continuously be aware of changes and more quickly adapt to changing environments in order to remain competitive. The "Sensing Enterprise" concept has been coined as a vision towards enterprises that use new technologies and concepts to continuously track their business operations and become more responsive to changing demands and more resilient in regard to threats. Among enabling technologies for this are different kinds of sensors, intelligent agents, semantic technologies, smart objects, ad-hoc networking and technologies for cyber-physical systems. In order to leverage these technologies, new demands and challenges for enterprise information systems arise. In order to support and implement this vision of a continuously (self-)aware enterprise, they have to transform to "Sensing Enterprise Systems". This transformation not only addresses technology, but also the way humans work together and even raises ethical questions. The workshop therefore provides a platform for a wide spectrum of contributions that provide novel ideas and studies in respect to the design and implementation as well as human-related and economic aspects of future Sensing Enterprise Systems.

Topics include but are not limited to the following

*             Architectures for Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Modelling and conceptual studies on Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Core enabling technologies and concepts such as sensors and Internet of Things

*             Additional technologies such as intelligent agents, smart objects, text analytics

*             Design theories and methods for developing Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Human aspects such as work organization, privacy and ethical questions

*             Neuro-IS topics such as stress detection to support Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Case studies demonstrating the practical use and efficacy of Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Empirical research on adoption and acceptance of Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Utility, benefit and profitability analyses for Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Cyber-physical systems in the context or as part of Sensing Enterprise Systems

*             Complex event processing and big data analytics related to proactive sensing systems
