CONFERENCE SCOPE AND MISSION

The International Conference on Business Information Systems provides a
forum for presenting and discussing research and industrial reports in the
area of development and implementation of information systems as well as
exploitation and improvement of information technology as applicable to
business processes. Competitive market forces lead to shorter innovation
cycles and to technological improvements and cost reductions that
necessitate significant changes within enterprises: flattening and
simplification of organizational structures, orientation on implementation
rather than function, tasks fulfillment based on their priority and not
chronological order, customization of products to satisfy specific needs
of individual people, etc. The topics of BIS conferences derive from a
fundamental observation that IT systems must support these evolving
business objectives and processes. The conference builds on the success
of the BIS'97 event attended by speakers from all over the world. This
three-day forum is the initiative of the University of Economics in
Poznanand the PoznanInternational Fair Inc. A strict refereeing process
imposed on the Program Committee members ensures the quality of the
papers. The Proceedings of the conference papers are edited and published.
For BIS'98, we will attempt to achieve wider dissemination of BIS papers
by inviting a recognized publishing house to print a number of selected
papers and invited presentations in a book form. Papers can be presented
in any of the three conference languages (English, German or Polish - with
simultaneous translation to delegates).

TOPICS OF INTEREST

BIS'98 invites researchers and practitioners to submit papers that
contribute to research in business information systems as well as papers
that report on industrial IT projects. The Program Committee particularly
encourages presentation of practical papers reporting on industry
experiences or validated by prototype implementations. Topics are only
restricted by the scope of the conference as defined above and they
include inter alia:

* IT support for different levels of decision making: operational control,
business management, and strategic planning.

* Information systems for different business sectors: industry, commerce
and services, banks, insurance, public and local administration, etc.

* Integration of information systems: workflow, data warehouses, data
replication, distributed databases, groupware, decision support, data
mining, archiving and retrieval systems, coping with legacy systems, etc.

* Lifecycle process and methods: architectures and modeling of information
systems, business process reengineering, structured and object development
methods, self learning organizations, quality management, metrics, project
management, requirements trace-ability, training, outsourcing, etc.

* Electronic transactions: commerce and payments in the Internet,
information systems communication, virtual organizations, hypertext,
distributed object computing, standards, etc.

* Enabling technologies: relational and object databases, networks, mobile
computing, multimedia, interoperability issues, data security, object
reuse, patterns and frameworks, information superhighways, CASE tools,
etc.

In December 1995 the Congress of Polish Informatics was held in
Poznanresulting in the report: "Strategy for the Development of
Informatics in Poland - The State, Perspectives and Suggestions". This was
the Polish answer to Bangeman Report: "Europe and Global Information
Society". During BIS'98 a special plenary discussion is planned that will
be devoted to the preparation of the 2nd Congress of Polish Informatics.
Polish and international experts will take part in this discussion.

MEDOC

Delegates will have access to selected scientific literature as electronic
fulltexts. The documents covering computer science topics will be made
available over the Internet by the owners. Textbooks, conference
proceedings, electronic journals and technical reports will be made
available.

VENUE

Poznan is situated at the crossroads of important international railway
and road routes, midway between Berlin and Warsaw.  It is one of the most
important industrial, trade, cultural, academic and educational centers in
Poland. In Poznan the social and economic changes of the past few years
