23rd IEEE International Conference on Business Informatics (IEEE CBI 2021)
1-3 September 2021, Virtual Event

Abstract submission: 30 April 2021
Full paper submission deadline: 7 May 2021


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.


Enterprise Modeling, Engineering and Architecture
Artificial Intelligence for Business
Data-Driven Business Analytics and Applications
Business Process Management
Information Systems Engineering
Information Systems Management
Business Innovations and Digital Transformation
Ethics and Legal Norms in Business Informatics
Finance and Informatics
Industry 4.0 (Industry Applications)

A detailed list of topics along with track chairs will be announced soon. Check  for updates.
