The EuroSymposium on Systems Analysis and Design has the objective of promoting and developing high quality research on all issues related to systems analysis and design (SAND). It provides a forum to researchers and practitioners in SAND in Europe and beyond – to interact, collaborate and develop the systems analysis and design area.
The event has the hybrid form – the accepted papers can be presented at the venue site or by videoconferencing.
The EuroSymposium is currently headed by the Advisory Board and International Programme Committee composed of prominent researchers to guide this initiative.
Therefore, there are three organizers of the 9th EuroSymposium on Systems Analysis and Design are as follows:
•       SIGSAND is the Association for Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group on Systems Analysis and Design. SIGSAND provides services such as annual symposia, news, research and teaching tracks at major IS conferences, listserv and special issues in journals. The EuroSymposia were initiated by the past AIS Vice President Prof. Keng Siau as the SIGSAND-Europe Initiative.
•       The Polish Chapter of Association for Information Systems (PLAIS) was established in 2006 as the joint initiative of Prof. Claudia Loebbecke, University of Cologne, Germany, former President of AIS and Prof. Stanisław Wrycza, University of Gdansk, Poland. PLAIS co-organizes international and domestic conferences on systems analysis and design as well as on Business Informatics and Systems Engineering.
•       The Department of Business Informatics of the University of Gdansk is conducting intensive teaching and research activities. The Department is also active internationally, organizing conferences including the 10th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2002), The 7th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2008), The 8th International Conference on European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN 2009) and 24th Conference on Advance Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2012). The Department is the partner of the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS) consortium.
