12th International Workshop On Value Modelling and Business Ontologies (VMBO)
|Date:||26 February 2018 to 27 February 2018|
Special theme: Value-aware design of information systems
Increasingly, information systems have a business and consumer value aspect. For example, end-user services such as Netflix and Spotify actually are information systems that produce economic value directly. In this edition of VMBO, we are seeking contributions that discuss the influence of new business insights (e.g. service-dominant logic) on information system design and the other way around.
The importance of modeling the essence of enterprises on a level that abstracts from operational details is increasingly recognized. Two recognized enterprise modeling approaches are value modeling and business ontologies. Business ontologies provide abstract descriptions of enterprises in their business context, focusing on what is needed to create and transfer value. Value modeling is a business modeling approach that focuses on the value objects exchanged in business networks. Business ontology and value modeling research is conducted using instruments like REA (Resources, Events, Agents), the Business Model Canvas, the e3value tool set, VDML and the Enterprise Engineering framework.
The goals of the VMBO workshop series are to bring together researchers with an interest in value modeling and business ontology in order to present and discuss the current state of enterprise or business modeling and to identify key areas for further research. The theme of this year’s workshop is value aware design of information system, but other papers are welcome as well.
