The main theme of ICISO 2013 was “Service Science and Knowledge Innovation”, which 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 in paving the way for potential collaboration amongst leading semiotics researchers and industrial practioners. Moreover we were pleased to facilitate like-minded researchers coming closer together to exploring collaborative links, to discuss innovative ideas, and to engage and develop the wider organisational semiotics community. We look forward to inviting you all to the next International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics on Organisation in 2015.
