European, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Conference on Information Systems (EMCIS)

European, Mediterranean and Middle Eastern Conference on Information Systems (EMCIS) is an annual research event addressing the IS discipline with regional as well as global perspective. EMCIS has successfully helped bringing together researchers from around the world in a friendly atmosphere conducted to free exchange of innovative ideas. EMCIS was founded in 2004 by Brunel University research Group ISEing and it is an annual event. This year is organised by University of Coimbra and University of Lisbon. A number of respected collaborations were made with different local universities across the destinations chosen each year and EMCIS still proves to attract many further partnerships.

EMCIS is one of the premier conferences in Europe and Middle Eastern region for Information Systems academics and professionals, covering technical, organisational, business and social issues in the application of Information Technology. EMCIS is dedicated to the definition and establishment of Information Systems as a discipline of high impact for the methodical community and IS professionals – focusing on approaches that facilitate the identification of innovative research of significant relevance to the IS discipline following sound research methodologies that lead to results of measureable impact.

Unique characteristic of the EMCIS conference includes:

  • Conference proceedings will be published in a Springer Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing volume   .
  • Conference proceedings are indexed by ISI Proceedings, DBLP, EI and Scopus.
  • Substantially extended versions of the 10% at most of EMCIS papers may be selected for publication in academic journals.
  • Distinctive Keynote addresses by distinguished international scholars from different disciplines, highlighting or discussing particularand generic global topics.
  • An international event that continues to attract attendees, academics, practitioners and junior researchers including PhD students from all over the world, enjoying the friendly atmosphere conducive to free exchange of innovative ideas.

Keynote Speech

ORGANIZATIONAL IDENTITY AND SELF-AWARENESS
CREATING CONVERGENCE BETWEEN ENTERPRISE ENGINEERING AND ORGANIZATIONAL DESIGN

By José M. Tribolet

The theme of “convergence” or “integration” between artefacts that most people would call organizational (e.g. mission statements, organizational charts or operating procedures) and artefacts which derive from information technology (e.g. information architectures, process models or management control software) is central to the discipline of information systems, both in its organizational studies flavours, as well as in its computer science flavours. During the last decade we* have been actively working to progressively narrow of the gap between these two disciplinary areas of organization studies and computer science, both understood is the broadest possible sense, so that such artefacts can be viewed, interpreted and used by all involved in an objective and integrated way, with the aim to provide better means to design, operate and transform organizations. We believe that the concepts of Organizational Identity and Organizational Self Awareness play a key role in bridging the gap between these two disciplinary areas, which still mainly work back to back, without a credible and rigorous framework adequate for sustained integration of their immense knowledge basis. In this talk we will attempt to explain the reasons behind our belief, and hope to motivate the research communities of both disciplinary areas to work together towards such integration goal. *This talk is based on work done by the speaker in collaboration with Rodrigo Magalhães and Marielba Silva.
