Digital Ecosystems of the Future: Methods, Techniques and Applications


For 40 years, the GI Special Interest Group on Design Methods for Information System (GI-SIG-EMISA) is a platform for experts from industry and academia to exchange and discuss the methodical aspects of planning, modeling, developing and running digital ecosystems. While terminology and buzzwords change, many of the questions raised when EMISA was founded still remain challenging, and many new questions came along over the years.

The EMISA 2019 conference will take place at the “Evangelische Akademie” in Tutzing, Germany (near Munich), the location of its inaugural meeting in 1979. The “Evangelische Akademie” is beautifully located right next to Lake Starnberg and provides modern accommodation and the fantastic “Rotunde” room which provokes lively and intensive discussions..

We seek original contributions not under review elsewhere: Full papers of a maximum length of 14 pages and short papers of 8 pages. In addition, we invite the research groups represented in EMISA to present their current work and projects in an innovative exhibition. Short papers (max. 8 pages) of exhibitors will be published as well; a plenary “EMISA 2019 Madness” will allow each group for inviting the audience to its exhibition stand.

Speeches of personalities, who have substantially contributed to the subjects and to the success of EMISA over the past 40 years, will complement the EMISA 2019 program.
