BIR2016 Prague, Czech Republic– The 15th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research



The BIR conference policy

The BIR conference series originates from an initiative of the late professor Bengt G. Lundberg of Växjö and Stockholm universities and colleagues at the universities of Rostock and Berlin. They wanted to create a forum where researchers in business informatics, senior as well as junior, could meet and discuss with each other. The term business informatics was chosen as a translation of German “wirtschaftsinformatik”.

The conference series has its base in the Baltic Sea region (including Norway and Iceland) and would normally be organized there. However, this should not hinder that once in a while it can be organized elsewhere. Furthermore, the following rules apply:

The name of the conference should be “xxth International conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research” or “BIRyyyy” in short.

- The conference is usually 2 days.

- The conference welcomes papers from all over the world.

- The conference welcomes papers from PhD students as well as from senior researchers.  

- The best papers are selected for presentation at the conference and publication in the conference proceedings. The copyright stays with the authors, if not stated otherwise. The proceedings should have an ISBN.

- The conferences can have a forum, e.g. a poster session, in which papers describing more preliminary research can be presented. A workshop (doctoral consortium) directed specifically to PhD students may also be organized.

- The organizers should make every attempt to keep the costs for attending the conference reasonably low.

- The economic risk stays with the organizers. There should be no collection of money. Should there be a profit it should be used to the benefit of the local PhD students.

The conference series has a steering committee, to which one or two named persons from each appointed organizer are invited. The most important tasks for this committee are, (1) based on one or more proposals, to appoint new organizers of the BIR conferences, and (2) to help organizers with whatever matters they can concerning the organization of a conference.

A physical steering committee meeting should be organized some time during each conference.

The conference series has a web site http://www.bir-conference.org/ It has also a logotype that should be used in web material and printed documentation produced in connection with the organization of a BIR conference.
