Istrend 2018

Information on Registration for the Workshop

The beginning of September is very intensive touristic season in Budapest. Available rooms in the hotel might be soon limited. So please make your decision as early as possible, book your room through the conference site in time and register for the conference and / or for the workshops.

One or more of the authors must register for the workshop on the conference web site and  attend ISTREND 2018 (ADBIS 2018) Workshop to present the paper.
Naturally, you may attend the ADBIS 2018 conference as well, and register for it separately and pay the registration fee.

Payment: you can create and download your pro-forma invoice using the on-line registration system. The deadline for payment is 8 days. Please note, that the registration fee should be received by the conference organizers not later than 20th June, 2018.


20th June , 2018 – Camera-ready papers

20th June, 2018- Registration

30th June, 2018 – Fulfillment of the payment of the registration fee

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers should present substantially original results not currently under review or published elsewhere. Papers should be written in English and must comply with the Springer formatting guidelines (instructions for authors are available at

Papers should be formatted either in Latex and submitted in PDF format, or *. doc format using the online submission system.

Paper length is limited to 12 pages.



The camera-ready version of each
accepted papers (sources in a zip + separate pdf) and the filled and
manually signed copyright form (in pdf obtained after scanning) should
be uploaded as proceeding author into EasyChair, Proceeding Papers.

“3.1 Copyright Form
A prefilled copyright form is usually available from the conference website. Please
send your signed copyright form to your conference publication contact, either as a
scanned PDF or by fax or by courier. The corresponding author must sign the form on
behalf of all of the authors of a particular paper, having gained their permission to do
so. He or she signs for and accepts responsibility for releasing the material on behalf
of any and all co-authors. Digital signatures are not acceptable. The corresponding
author must be available to check the paper before it is published. Please note that
once a paper has been delivered to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the
paper cannot be made. Authors names cannot be added or deleted, their order cannot
be changed, and the corresponding author cannot be altered.” (Springer_Guidelines_for_Authors_of_Proceedings)

If any of the authors contributing to ADBIS Workshops 2018 are interested in Open Access or Open Choice, please refer to our webpage. We would need the address(es) for the invoice(s) and the CC-BY Consent-to-Publish form(s) at the same time as the files for the publication.

Volume editors and authors who have included their email addresses in their papers will receive an email roughly four weeks after publication of the proceedings, linking them to their personal My Springer page. From here, they will be able to download the pdf of the entire volume. In addition, authors and editors are entitled to a 40% discount off Springer publications. Details are given on the MySpringer page.

The workshop main goals:

The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum to present and discuss finished and on-going work in Information’s Systems research and its applications. A special focus is given to current trends in conjunction with modeling. The workshop expects contributions that leverage the use of Information Systems for Digital Innovation and the Digital Transformation by modeling and architecture-center approaches considering the trend of Industrial Internet (Industry 4.0).

The various models and description and design approaches for architecture of information systems can be investigated; those approaches that reflect the different facets of an operating environment in a socio-technological ecosystem that includes components as human resources, business processes, processes of data and information, applications, IoT, mobile equipment etc. Their relationships to each other and to the environment, furthermore the principles for guiding its design and evolution could be analyzed. The scientific methods for the examination of such a complex environment is the Design Science Research and Case Study Paradigm. The experiences of using the before-mentioned scientific paradigms as meta-methodologies can be summarized as well and the experience can yield insights into the successful results

The list of a workshop topics:

The Current Trends in Information Systems, and their Architecture workshop provides a platform for researchers and practitioners to share research and experiences and discuss emerging developments in the area of advanced information systems modeling and architecture in enterprises; moreover, the scientific and rigorous investigation and analysis of research, development and design artifacts. The core theme of the workshop is the role of Information Systems within the mainstream of Digital Innovation and the Digital Transformation in organizations, enterprises

The Workshop Chairs therefore invite authors to submit original research, research in progress and industry examples or practices on topics of interest in advanced information systems modeling and architecture in enterprise that include, but are not limited to:

Modeling approaches/methods:

  • Digital Innovation in organizations and enterprises, and Information Systems as actuators;
  • Digital Transformation in organizations and enterprises, and Information Systems as buttressing appliance;
  • The role of IoTs in Digital Innovation and Transformation;
  • Enterprise and Information Architecture for supporting Digital Innovation and Transformation;
  • Methodologies, analysis and design methods for modeling Information Systems for Business Processes in the Industrial Internet (Industry 4.0);
  • Methodologies, analysis and design methods for modeling Information Systems utilizing IoT-s for business purposes?
  • Emerging disruptive technologies on the field of information systems modeling and architecture in enterprises, formal and semi-formal approaches.
  • Design Science Research Paradigm for  modeling of contemporary information systems, and their architectures;
  • Design Science Research and Case Study Paradigm as the scientific methodology for examination, presentation of results,  and proving the validity of the proposed engineering, development and formal methods.
