The 14th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM) will take place in Riga, Latvia from 24-26 November 2021.

The working 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 “The use of Enterprise Modeling and Enterprise Architecture Towards Ensuring Sustainability and Resilience of Enterprises and Societies”.

The theme is aligned by the increasing demand for making businesses, services and products more environmentally friendly and efficient as well as lasting longer and being robust to unexpected changes. 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 the art in practice.

PoEM usually attracts a good mix of researchers and practitioners and its program consists of keynotes, paper presentations, workshops, as well as panels and breakout sessions. In 2020, PoEM was organised as an online event, but this year organisers are aiming for physical event if the situation with the Covid19 pandemic permits.
