EMMSAD 2021 was co-located with the CAiSE 2021 conference and held from 28-29 June 2021 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 Mahdi Fahmideh, Jolita Ralyté, Janis Stirna

    • Enterprise, business process & capability modeling – chaired by Dominik Bork, Jānis Grabis, Paul Grefen

    • Information systems & requirements modeling – chaired by Aneesh Krishna, Roman Lukyanenko, Marcela Ruiz

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

    • Evaluation of modeling approaches – chaired by Lubna Alam, Oscar Pastor, Geert Poels
