Call for papers FOR EWSECO 2017

We would like to invite European researchers and practitioners in the field of software ecosystem and business networks to come together in Darmstadt, Germany, on November 23th 2017, to discuss their recent (academic) research, insights or issues related to management of ecosystems, business models or technical issues including but not limited to topics like

  • "What are the business and engagement models of business networks and how are they managed?",
  • "What metrics exist for ecosystems and business networks to tell if they are healthy?" ,
  • "How do I handle intellectual property in partner ecosystems and business networks?"
  • "How can we view the Internet of Things as a software ecosystem and what properties does it have?“
  • „How can decentralized ecosystems (e.g. ecosystems without an underlying platform) be designed and what technologies drive the emergence of such ecosystems?“
  • „How can participation of an actor in several ecosystem be managed?“
  • „How do ecosystems differ in various domains?“
  • „How do platform business models distinguish from other business models and what are requirements for platform-based business models?“
  • „How can multi-sided partner relationships be managed? Are there approaches to set up such relationships?“
  • „How do ecosystems in Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning look like? What are differences and characteristics of such ecosystems?"
  • „How do ecosystems evolve e.g. based on lessons learned?"

We will invite practitioners to the workshop to ensure discussion about the practical impact of research and to give the presenters the opportunity to discuss with practitioners and researchers alike.
The workshop location at Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research in Darmstadt (Fraunhoferstraße 5, 64283 Darmstadt), Germany, with many software and software service companies having an office nearby which eases the participation for practitioners.
