VIRTUAL EVENT – 17th to 20th of November 2020

I-ESA 2020 

As you know
the COVID situation forced us to postpone the I-ESA conference from March to
November. We hoped the situation would come back to normal, but unfortunately
it is not the case. 

The steering committee has followed the progress of the
situation and also collected your opinions, according to that, it’s decided
that I-ESA 2020 will be held virtually. 

Even though
we unfortunately lost most of our sponsors due to the situation, the steering
committee has decided to refund 100€ for each registered person (it will be
done by the next few months).

details will be communicated over the next few weeks. 

The I-ESA 2020 Conference will be held at INP-ENIT in Tarbes, providing an outstanding opportunity to discuss the latest developments in Enterprise Interoperability and related domains. The programme includes research paper presentations, prominent international keynote speakers, a Doctoral Symposium as well as pre-conference workshops and Industrial sessions. A best paper award will be given to the most outstanding paper. All accepted papers will be released in the conference proceedings and the most notable papers will be published in renowned journals.

The I-ESA 2020 Conference welcomes submissions of scientific papers directly connected with the conference topics but also welcomes industrial papers demonstrating relevant case studies and implementation of Enterprise Interoperability solutions. The maximum paper length is 10 pages. Accepted papers will be published in “Enterprise Interoperability X (2020)”. It will be indexed in Web of Science (WoS) in the “Conference Proceedings Citation Index- Science” which is inside the “Web of Science Core Collection”. I-ESA2020 
is also glad to receive proposals for tracks (2 or more special sessions), special sessions (4-5 papers), focused on the theme of the conference and its relevant topics.



The I-ESA 2020 Conference invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Workshops aim to be a forum to discuss advanced research in relation to enterprise interoperability and typically relate to recent research and industrial issues. The particular goal is to facilitate an active exchange between the speakers and the audience in order to encourage further research and to publish the discussion outcomes in the proceedings. Workshops can also provide opportunities to promote the results of past or present International, European and national research projects in order to facilitate the exploitation of these results.



The Doctoral Symposium is an opportunity for students involved in the preparation of their PhD in any area of EI to interactively discuss their research issues with senior researchers.
