The 14th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO 2013) was held on 25-26 March 2013 in Stockholm, Sweden with great success.

ICISO 2013 was an IFIP WG8.1 working conference. It was organised by the Informatics Research Centre, Henley Business School, hosted by the Department of Computer and Systems Science (DSV), Stockholm University and supported by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC). The venue of the conference was in the forum building, Campus Kista, Stockholm.

Conference chairs Professor Kecheng Liu (Director of the Informatics Research Centre and Head of Business Informatics, Systems and Accounting, Henley Business School) and Professor Paul Johannesson (Head of the research laboratory SYSLAB, Department of Computer and Systems Sciences, Stockholm University) chaired this two-day programme. Leading professors in organisational semiotics and informatics from throughout the world participated in this conference. Professor Ronald Stamper, founder of organisational semiotics, gave an inspirational keynote speech on 'Developing organisational semiotics as an empirical science'.

'Web of things, people and information systems' was the main theme of ICISO 2013. It provided a focal platform for researchers to share their talents and expertise in various domains such as organisational semiotics, information management, computational science, business and engineering. More importantly, it offered a tremendous opportunity to pave the way for potential collaborations among semiotics research forces and industrial practices. The conference attracted a large number of participants from Europe, Scandinavia, Africa, the Middle East, Asia and the Pacific. Participants thoroughly enjoyed the conference experience.

We are pleased to report that this conference has made a significant contribution in bringing researchers from different countries closer, exploring collaborative links for innovative ideas and engaging the wider organisational semiotics community. We also hope that this conference will demonstrate the pace of innovation in all future events. The next International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations in 2014 will be held in Shanghai, China.
