2016

EMMSAD 2016 was co-located with the CAiSE 2016 conference held from 13-14 June 2016 in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The field of information systems analysis and design includes numerous information modeling methods and notations (e.g., ER, ORM, UML, Archimate, EPC, DEMO, DFDs, BPMN) that are typically evolving. Even with some attempts toward standardization (e.g., UML for object-oriented design), new modeling methods are constantly being introduced, many of which differ only marginally from existing approaches. These ongoing changes significantly impact the way information systems are being analyzed and designed in practice. EMMSAD focuses on exploring, evaluating, and enhancing current information modeling methods and methodologies. Though the need for such studies is well recognized, there is a paucity of such research in the literature. 

The objective of the conference is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in modeling methods in systems analysis and design to meet and exchange research ideas and results. It also gives the participants an opportunity to present their research papers and experience reports, and to take part in open discussions. 

EMMSAD 2016 was the 21st in a series of events, previously held in Valencia, Heraklion, Barcelona, Pisa, Heidelberg, Stockholm, Interlaken, Toronto, Velden, Riga, Porto, Luxembourg, Trondheim, Montpellier, Amsterdam, Hammamet, London, Gdansk, Thessaloniki, and Stockholm. This year we had 19 submissions from 14 countries. After an extensive review process by a distinguished international Program Committee, with each paper receiving at least three reviews, we accepted 11  high-quality papers. Furthermore we take the opportunity to publish 1 paper, which has already been selected in 2015. Congratulations to the successful authors!

Acknowledgements
Apart from the contribution by paper authors, the quality of EMMSAD 2016 depended in no small way on the generous contribution of time and effort by the Program Committee and the additional reviewers. Their work is greatly appreciated. We also express our sincere thanks to the CAiSE Organizing Committee.
