Word of welcome by the Conference Chairmen

Dear colleagues,
Ladies and Gentlemen,

For more than two decades, the International Conference on Wirtschaftsinformatik (WI) constitutes a well-established get-together of the German-speaking information systems community. The conference equally addresses scientists, practitioners and students, who are interested in current developments in the field of information technology as well as the business models related thereto.

It is a great honor for us to host the WI 2015 in Osnabrück as the field of information systems has a long tradition here. Not only did Prof. Dr. Peter Stahlknecht, a pioneer of the beginnings of WI, teach at Osnabrück University from the 1980s to 1990s, but also is our institution the only one to offer a intensified study program in this field.

According to the motto „Smart Enterprise Engineering – digital products and processes for the enterprise of the future”, in March 2015, we would like to discuss current problems and methods of resolution as well as development prospects in our specialized field. Apart from the approved components, such as student/doctoral consortium, business track as well as panels and tutorials, we will arrange for tracks on common topics and equally catch up on current trends.

Conference venues are the newly modernized Osnabrück city hall (e.g., keynote, panels), the Osnabrück castle (e.g., welcome reception, lectures) and the university’s seminar building (e.g., lectures, doctoral consortium). All conference locations are in direct proximity to Osnabrück’s city center, the historic section of town and some of the hotels. Osnabrück is a conference venue with short distances.

For the duration of the conference, we would also like to call your attention to our city. Osnabrück is quite reasonably perceived as important center of higher education and science on the one hand, and as commercially attractive location for innovative medium-sized enterprises with national and international significance on the other. Furthermore, it is a meaningful center for the logistics, food, engineering and healthcare industries.

The aforementioned circumstances enable us to tie closely together the information systems community with users and corporate decision-makers. “Economy meets science” is another integral part of our motto.

We warmly invite you to come to the ‘city of peace’ and to delve into the future challenges on the field of information technology. Already today, we are looking forward to welcoming you in Osnabrück in March 2015!

Osnabrück, April 2014
