Conference Call for Papers

22nd IEEE International Conference on Business Informatics (IEEE CBI 2020) June 22–24, 2020, Antwerp, Belgium

The IEEE Conference Series on Business Informatics is the leading international forum for state-of-the-art research in Business Informatics. The 22nd IEEE CBI 2020, held in the city of Antwerp, calls for submissions in the multidisciplinary field of Business Informatics, and welcomes a multitude of theoretical and practical perspectives and mind-sets on today’s challenges of the digital transformation.

Call for Papers

The IEEE CBI series encourages a broad understanding of Business Informatics research, and intends to further its many different facets, theoretical foundations and experiential body of knowledge. In doing so, the CBI series has proven to be a fertile ground for research with high impact, and a hub for multidisciplinary research with contributions from Management Science, Organization Science, Economics, Information Systems, Computer Science, and Informatics.

In line with this, the CBI series aims to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from various fields and backgrounds that contribute to the construction, use and maintenance of information systems and their organizational use contexts. A dedicated goal of the CBI series of conferences is to bring together researchers from different fields and disciplines to stimulate discussion, synergy and collaboration. Accordingly, CBI conferences use a format that enables in depth discussions among researchers during the conference. 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 research communities. The conference organization accounts for this challenge by involving renowned track chairs and program committee members from different fields and disciplines.
