EMCIS is one of the premier conferences in Europe and the Middle Eastern region for information systems academics and professionals, covering technical, organisational, business and social issues in the application of information technology. EMCIS is dedicated to the definition and establishment of information systems as a discipline of high impact for the methodical community and IS professionals, focusing on approaches that facilitate the identification of innovative research of significant relevance to the IS discipline following sound research methodologies that lead to results of measurable impact.

Authors of selected papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Computers. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Computers and collected together on the Special Issue website.
The conference paper should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper; authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter and include a statement describing what has been changed compared to the original conference paper. Each submission to this journal issue should contain at least 50% new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases. There are no limitations regarding the number of pages or words.
Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors. Use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file of the journal (both are available on the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via our susy.mdpi.com editorial system.
