All accepted workshop papers, as well as Doctoral Consortium papers, will be published in a joint CEUR-WS proceedings volume using the CEUR-ART styles. The uniform style for the proceedings is 1-column. The CEUR-ART styles can be found in the file.
Please find below details on each individual workshop and their submission schedule. Details on the Doctoral Consortium are available here.

3rd International Workshop on Blockchain for Trusted Data Sharing (B4TDS 2023)

In the last few years, many software systems are moving towards blockchain technologies since they bring many advantages in different sectors. Thanks to smart contracts, data can be manipulated and accessed by users similar to databases with enhanced trust capabilities, databases. This opportunity, combined with the blockchain potentialities, such as the integrity and the immutability of data, guarantees trusted evidence of the information stored and exchanged in the blockchain without relying on a central authority. This makes the blockchain the ideal technology for auditing, verification and sharing purposes, significantly changing how to design and implement next-generation distributed applications. The workshop can break the technological barriers to data management on blockchain technology, proposing novel approaches and solutions.

13th Workshop on Business and IT Alignment (BITA 2023)

This workshop aims to bring together people who have an interest in BITA. We invite and appreciate researchers and practitioners from industry and academia to submit original results of their completed or ongoing projects.
A contemporary challenge for enterprises is to keep up with the pace of changing business demands imposed on them. There is today an obvious demand for continuous improvement and alignment in enterprises. BITA is many times manifested through the transition of taking an enterprise from one state (AS-IS) into another improved state (TO-BE). Recent development within digitalization, digital transformation, smart products (value proposal) and smart operations (value adding) has brought new dimensions to BITA where smart business ecosystems is an emerging trend. A continuous BITA challenge is to move beyond a limited focus on one tradition or technology. There is a need to be able to deal with multi-dimensions of the enterprise in order to create alignment between business and IT. Examples of such dimensions are organizational structures, strategies, architectures, business models, work practices, processes, and IS/IT structures.

8th Workshop on Managed Complexity (ManComp 2023)

Managing complexity has a long tradition for algorithms and general problems. However, it is an important issue also in Business Informatics domain. Here the complexity of different systems and systems of systems has to be managed. While complexity usually associates with large or very large scale systems still managing complexity is important even for systems with small sizes operating in complex environment. Nowadays informatics requires handling complexity at different levels and configurations of social, physical, enterprise, software, and hardware systems. The workshop is planned to focus on approaches and methods for managing complexity in the domain of applied informatics that may concern interplay of systems and ecosystems of various sizes and substances. Its purpose is to share and transfer knowledge on complexity identification, representation, controlling and reduction as well as to exploit possible synergies in development of innovative complexity handling strategies, approaches, and methods.

1st Workshop on Scaled Agile Development of Complex Software Projects

Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) is a one of world’ leading technologies to build business agility. It integrates Lean, Agile and DevOps into delivering innovative complex products, services and results. When a product team is working on the complex projects and delivering within the Agile ways of working, they need to synchronize all activities between team. Implementing SAFe is one on the solutions which can help to do this.
At the same time one of the most relevant frameworks to develop business information systems is Agile. So, this workshop will help to build necessary competences to improve BIS management and delivery.
The workshop goals are (based on the provided business specification (“Article Management System”)):
  • to get basic understanding of SAFe
  • to practice with mandatory SAFe ceremonies as Program Increment planning (PI planning), Scrum of Scrums, and others.
  • practicing with creating an Agile team, planning the Iterations, backlog refinement and grooming, etc.
  • practicing with scrum (Kanban) ways of working with all mandatory ceremonies, as daily; sprint planning, review and retrospective.

1st Workshop on Domain-specific Modeling Methods and Tools - OMiLAB Nodes experience & knowledge exchange (OMiLAB-KNOW)

The goal of the workshop is to stimulate discussions on the requirements, use, design decisions, tooling and evaluations regarding domain-specific conceptual modeling methods in the context of Business Informatics Research.
Discussions will be facilitated by the current activities and experience of nodes in the OMiLAB network and community of practice. Results from network members typically include modeling tools, modeling method components or extensions, model-driven artifacts, applications of domain-specific modeling, empirical evaluation strategies. OMiLAB nodes are invited to share such results, visions potentially leading to such results or project-based experiences where modeling methods played an enabling role. Both empirical experimentation and design-oriented research are welcome. The integration of conceptual modeling topics in curricular contents and associated teaching experiences are also typical concerns to be discussed in the workshop's scope.
The workshop also welcomes researchers and educators from outside the OMiLAB network who are active in the fields of knowledge engineering, enterprise modeling and domain-specific modeling, having a general interest in the value of conceptual models and the diversity of modeling purposes. Knowledge exchanges with other modeling-centric communities are expected to drive debates and positions with diverse perspectives.
Various stages of research progress can be reported in the workshop submissions - from (short) position and vision papers to (full) research papers and experience reports.
