The Xth SIGSAND/PLAIS EuroSymposium


50 YEARS (1967-2017)

September 22, 2017

Gdansk, Poland



The Xth Jubilee SIGSAND/PLAIS EuroSymposium has the objective of promoting and developing high quality research on all issues related to systems analysis and design (SAND). It provides a forum to researchers and practitioners in SAND in Europe and beyond – to interact, collaborate and develop the systems analysis and design area. The EuroSymposium is currently headed by the Advisory Board consisting of prominent researchers to guide this initiative.



There are three organizers of The Xth SIGSAND/PLAIS EuroSymposium:

  • SIGSAND is the Association for Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group on Systems Analysis and Design. SIGSAND provides services such as annual symposia, news, research and teaching tracks at major IS conferences, listserv and special issues in journals. The EuroSymposia were initiated by the past AIS Vice President Prof. Keng Siau as the SIGSAND-Europe Initiative.


  • The Polish Chapter of Association for Information Systems (PLAIS) was established in 2006 as the joint initiative of Prof. Claudia Loebbecke, University of Cologne, Germany, former President of AIS and Prof. Stanisław Wrycza, University of Gdansk, Poland. PLAIS co-organizes international and domestic conferences on systems analysis and design as well as on Business Informatics and Systems Engineering.


  • The Department of Business Informatics of the University of Gdansk is conducting intensive teaching and research activities. Some of its academic manuals are bestsellers in Poland. The Department is also active internationally, organizing conferences including the 10th European Conference on Information Systems (ECIS 2002), The 7th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2008), The 8th International Conference on European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN 2009) and SIGSAND/PLAIS EuroSymposia (2007, 2011 - 2016). The Department is the partner of the European Research Center for Information Systems (ERCIS) consortium and SAP University Alliances (SUA).
