The 16th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations

The 16th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO 2015) will be taking place in Toulouse, France on 20 - 21 March 2015.

The 16th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO 2015), similar to other events in the conference series, devotes to the latest research in informatics and organisational semiotics. The aim of this conference is to provide a focal forum for participants from various domains of information management and information systems, computational science, semiotics, finance and accounting, business and enterprise, service science, and business and engineering. One of the important emphases in this 16th conference will be information and knowledge management complex systems, such as large scale projects, network of networks, and dynamic and evolving enterprise.

Information is an important resource for any organisation, whether it is large or small, service or production industry. To understand the nature of information and how it can be effectively managed and used in organisations is highly relevant. Following the early events in the series, the key theme of this conference will be on information, and management in complex organizations such as spaces industries and organization. Particular interest will be placed in exploring and understanding from both theoretical and empirical perspectives on how information enables an organisation to sustain and, furthermore, to leverage innovation and competitiveness. In both cases, the organizations will rely heavily on effective management and use of information.

The conference topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Organisational semiotic theory, concepts, methods and techniques, and their practical applications
  • Semiotically inspired approaches to information and knowledge management
  • Complexity management in very large projects
  • Operations research in service
  • Decision analysis and methods
  • Big data, data science and business intelligence
  • Systems modelling and simulation
  • Information management and engineering
  • Technology and knowledge management
