The 15th IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM) takes place in London, UK, on November 23 – 25. It is hosted by Middlesex University London and co-chaired by Prof Balbir Barn (LDTRC, Middlesex Uni) and Prof. Kurt Sandkuhl (University of Rostock, Germany). The conference aims to improve the understanding of the practice of Enterprise Modelling (EM) by offering a forum for sharing experiences and knowledge between the academic community and practitioners from industry and the public sector.
This year, the theme of the conference is Enterprise Modeling and Model-based Development and Engineering. The theme reflects the importance of Enterprise modeling methods, techniques and tools in the development of complex solutions and systems, for example in the context of digital transformation, implementation of Artificial Intelligence, Internet-of-Things, Big Data solutions or Information and Software Systems. The field of Enterprise Modeling should seek to support these challenges by providing methods and tools, as well as investigating and reporting on the current state-of-research and state-of-practice. The conference also put great focus on the emerging topic of digital twinning and dedicate one workshop for this topic: The 1st International Workshop on Digital Twin Engineering. The London Digital Twin Research Centre will receive many partners and collaborators who attend and and present latest research outcomes during the conference. Prof Huan Nguyen will present a talk on “Digital Twin’s State of Play: Concepts, Development and Use Cases.”
