EMMSAD’2012 / EUROSYMPOSIUM'2012 Joint Working Conference

The field of information systems analysis and design includes numerous information modeling methods and notations (e.g. ER, ORM, UML, ArchiMate, EPC, BPMN, EEML, DEMO) that are typically evolving. Even with some attempts to standardize (e.g. UML for object-oriented software design), new modeling methods are constantly being introduced, many of which differ only marginally from previous approaches. These ongoing changes significantly impact the way information systems, enterprises, and business processes are being analyzed and designed in practice.

The EMMSAD (Exploring Modelling Methods for Systems Analysis and Design) conference focuses on exploring, evaluating, and enhancing modeling methods and methodologies for the analysis and design of information systems, enterprises, and business processes. Though the need for such studies is well recognized, there is a paucity of such research in the literature. The objective of the EMMSAD conference series is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in modeling methods for systems analysis and design to meet, and exchange research ideas and results. It also provides the participants an opportunity to present their research papers and experience reports, and to take part in open discussions. EMMSAD’2012 is the seventeenth in a very successful series of EMMSAD events, previously held in Heraklion, Barcelona, Pisa, Heidelberg, Stockholm, Interlaken, Toronto, Velden, Riga, Porto, Luxembourg, Trondheim, Montpellier, Amsterdam, Hammamet, and London.

The AIS SIGSAND EuroSymposium on Systems Analysis and Design has the objective of promoting and developing high quality research on all issues related to systems analysis and design. It provides a forum to researchers and practitioners in SAND in Europe and beyond to interact, collaborate and develop the Systems Analysis and Design area. Previous events have been held in Galway, Gdansk (twice), and Marburg.
