Information and knowledge management in complex systems
The 16th International Conference on Informatics and Semiotics in Organisations (ICISO
2015), similar to other events in the conference series, devotes to the latest research in
informatics and organisational semiotics. The aim of this conference is to provide a focal
forum for participants from various domains of information management and information
systems, computational science, semiotics, finance and accounting, business and
enterprise, service science, and business and engineering. One of the important
emphases in this 16th conference will be information and knowledge management
complex systems, such as large scale projects, network of networks, and dynamic and
evolving enterprise.

Information is an important resource for any organisation, whether it is large or small,
service or production industry. To understand the nature of information and how it can be
effectively managed and used in organisations is highly relevant. Following the early
events in the series, the key theme of this conference will be on information, and
management in complex organizations such as spaces industries and organization.
Particular interest will be placed in exploring and understanding from both theoretical and
empirical perspectives on how information enables an organisation to sustain and,
furthermore, to leverage innovation and competitiveness. In both cases, the organizations
will rely heavily on effective management and use of information.
