 Business Informatics
Business Informatics is the scientific discipline targeting information processes and related phenomena in their socio-economical business context, including companies, organizations, 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 endeavors to take a systematic and analytic approach in aligning core concepts from management science, organizational science, economics, information science, and informatics into an integrated engineering science.

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 in depth discussions among researchers in their respective domains during the conference. In addition, the contributions and discussions among the different domains are channeled towards a series of books dedicated to Advances in Business Informatics. For more information on the CBI series, refer to:

The CBI is aimed at creating a forum for researchers and practitioners from various fields that contribute to the construction, use and maintenance of information systems and the organizational context they are embedded in. Last but not least, we want to offer a common platform for Computer Science and Information Systems researchers. The benefits of such a cross-disciplinary conception are contrasted by a challenge: Authors who submit a paper take the risk to be assessed by standards that are different from those they are used to in their own communities. The CBI's organization accounts for this challenge. It comprises various Tracks that represent more than one individual community. Tracks are not only intended to represent a certain subject area, but also to include papers from different communities.
When submitting a paper, authors are expected to name the Track (optionally, two ordered Tracks) they feel most related to.

The proceedings of the CBI series are published by the IEEE as an electronic publication with its own ISBN number. The proceedings are made available to the conference participants by means of a USB stick, while also being included in the IEEE digital library. Depending on their topic, outstanding papers are recommended to one of a number of renowned journals. In particular, exceptional CBI papers will be invited to a special issue in Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - An International Journal.

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.

Format of papers

  1. The format should follow the IEEE conference style:
  2. Recommended paper length is up to 8 pages.
  3. Only PDF files are accepted. Submission URL:
  4. There is a limit of 250 words for the abstract.
  5. In the submission form, please select all topics from one or more domains that relate with your paper
  6. Important note: since the review process is double-blind, please make sure that your names and affiliations are not listed in the paper submitted for review!
