The 16th IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modeling (PoEM 2023) took place together with the 13th Enterprise Design and Engineering Working Conference (EDEWC 2023) as part of the Business Informatics week 2023 from 28.11. to 01.12. at the TU in Vienna.

Some contents of the PoEM 2023 were:

  • 12 accepted papers in the Main Track of the conference,
  • three workshops held jointly with the PoEM: The International Workshop on the Foundations and Applications of Capabilities in Enterprises, and Transformations and ESG, BES2023 4th International Workshop on Blockchain and Enterprise Systems and 2nd International Workshop on Digital Twin Engineering (DTE) 2023.

At EDEWC 2023, 7 contributions were accepted and two more for a doctoral workshop.

The Information Systems research group was well represented with a total of 7 presentations and 2 chaired sessions: Ben Hellmanzik presented his paper on "Challenges in Building a Digital Business Ecosystem in the maritime Domain" in the Main Track of EDEWC and Benjamin Nast presented on "Quality Evaluation of a DSML Supporting Model-Driven IoT Development for Air Conditioning Facilities".
