EMMSAD 2020 was co-located with the CAiSE 2020 conference and held from 8-9 June 2020 online.

The objective of the EMMSAD conference series is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners interested in modelling methods for Systems Analysis and Development (SA&D) to meet and exchange research ideas and results. To this end, the focus is on both insights in modelling for SA&D in general, and the fostering of cross-pollination of insights between different specific modelling approaches (such as business process modelling, enterprise modelling, value modelling, capability modeling, etc.).

Submission was done in 5 major tracks, related to modeling methods for Systems Analysis & Development:

    • Foundations of modeling & method engineering – chaired by Jolita Ralyté & Janis Stirna

    • Enterprise, business process & capability modeling – chaired by Janis Grabis & Paul Grefen

    • Information systems & requirements modeling – chaired by Oscar Pastor & Marcela Ruiz

    • Domain-specific & ontology modeling – chaired by Dimitris Karagiannis & Arnon Sturm

    • Evaluation of modeling approaches – chaired by Agnes Koschmider & Geert Poels
