  • Call for Tracks, Special Sessions and Workshops

    I-ESA2020 is glad to receive proposals for tracks (2 or more special sessions), special sessions (4-5 papers) and workshops (which can last from 1.5 hours up to an entire day), focused on the theme of the conference and its relevant topics.

    This is a great opportunity for the growing community of researchers, innovators, industrialists and engineers to share their insights, projects and case studies that address the conference theme "Interoperability In the ERA of AI". Ideas or proposals for tracks, special sessions or workshops should be communicated by email to

  • Call for papers

    The I-ESA conference connects the world's leading researchers and practitioners of enterprise interoperability and related domains, including interoperability aspects of enterprise systems and application. It joins new business models, smart services, IoT and Cloud technologies. All these current and future technologies cannot work smoothly without interoperability. I-ESA will be an outstanding opportunity to exchange experiences and business ideas between researchers, service providers, entrepreneurs and industrial stakeholders throw research papers.

    The Conference welcomes submissions of full papers in the scope of the conference. The maximum paper length is 10 pages. Accepted papers will be published in "Enterprise Interoperability IX (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" and in SCOPUS.

  • Opportunity for research projects and networking meetings

    I-ESA2020 offers you the opportunity to disseminate your research project activities and results, by organizing a Workshop or Special Session with Paper Presentations, under the scope of your project and the conference relevant topics. Presented papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings.

    I-ESA2020 will offer meeting rooms to conference participants for holding their project meetings, for those who want to organize a networking meeting.

About I-ESA 2020


I-ESA 2020 Topics Go to submission

This edition of I-ESA has the subtitle “Interoperability in the era of Artificial Intelligence“. Establishing efficient and relevant collaborations requires management of interoperability in a dynamic, evolving production network: a relevant and efficient collaboration of organizations requires continual adaptation to remain in line with potentially changing objectives, potentially evolving resources, unexpected events, etc. This specific aspect of interoperability will be the keystone of I-ESA 2020.

Furthermore, the topics of I-ESA 2020 are aligned with the vision presented in the framework program Horizon 2020 regarding interoperability: Enterprise interoperability and Innovation, Interoperability strategies for Digital and Sensing Enterprise, System Interoperability in Internet of everything ; Collaborative manufacturing and logistics.

I-ESA 2020 welcomes papers addressing the topics listed below, but this list is not exclusive: all papers relevant to enterprise interoperability and related topics will be considered in the review process.
