Second Call for Papers
WI 2015 - 12th International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik
"Smart Enterprise Engineering - digital products and processes for the enterprise of the future"
March 4th-6th 2015, Osnabrueck, Germany

Call for Research Papers
The International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik (WI) is the flagship conference of the German-speaking Information Systems community. With it's rigorous reviewing policies and acceptance rates of around 25%, the WI conference has established itself in line with high-profile conferences such as ECIS or ICIS. The conference equally addresses scientists, practitioners and students, who are interested in current developments in the field of information technology as well as the business models related thereto.

The conference's motto "Smart Enterprise Engineering - digital products and processes for the enterprise of the future" has been chosen to foster discussions about current challenges and research opportunities as well as the development prospects of our field as a whole. It is intended to connect the Information Systems community with users and corporate decision-makers to enable scientific exchanges on a high level for the mutual benefit. Hence, "Science meets Business" is an integral part of our motto.

WI 2015 will be held in the city of Osnabrueck, Germany. Osnabrueck is quite reasonably perceived as an important center of higher education and science on the one hand, and as a commercially attractive location for innovative medium-sized enterprises with national and international significance on the other. Furthermore, it is a meaningful center for the logistics, food, engineering and healthcare industries. With the Varus Battle and the Peace of Westphalia, two major events of world-historical importance, took place in the region surrounding Osnabrueck. There are 506,000 people living in the city and its rural district, and time and again studies furnish evidence that these are the happiest people throughout the federal territory.

Conference venues are the recently modernized OsnabrueckHalle convention center (e.g., keynotes, panels), the Osnabrueck castle (e.g., welcome reception, lectures) and the university's seminar building (e.g., lectures, doctoral consortium). All conference locations are in direct proximity to Osnabrueck's city center, the historic section of town and some of the hotels. Osnabrueck is a conference location with short distances.
The organization team is proud to announce Stephan Weil, Minister-President of Lower Saxony, as the conference's patron.
Further Information on the area are provided on the conference website:

Tracks / Research Topics
Researchers and practitioners are cordially invited to submit original research papers to the twelve research tracks of the WI 2015.
