We are excited to announce a workshop on the state of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) digitalization in recent years. On Monday afternoon, Marjeta Marolt from the University of Maribor, Slovenia and Andrea Kő from the Corvinus University of Budapest, Hungary will moderate a discussion on the lessons researchers from Slovenia and Hungary learnt from the digital transformation of SMEs.

SMEs are important contributors to the world’s economy. Digitalization is integral to the growth and resilience of enterprises, both large and small. However, despite the benefits and opportunities digital technologies bring, and the significant increase in uptake in recent years, many SMEs continue to lag behind in digital adoption compared to larger enterprises.

In this workshop, the invited speakers will provide an update on the current state of SMEs’ digitalization and discuss how to strengthen the resilience of SMEs and support their further growth, through the adoption of new technologies.

More about the workshop:

During the conference, the BIPER project team will present the results of the two-year BIPER (Business Informatics Programme Reengineering) project and lessons learned from pilot implementations at several universities and, finally, the “Smart City Enterprise Architectures Virtual Reality Summer School”.

The BIPER project aims to foster a collaborative partnership to develop a blended learning compatible business information systems curriculum based on shared values, eLearning experiences, and sound pedagogical principles. The challenge involves not only teaching methods and materials but also the teachers and trainers themselves. The academic field of Business Information Systems (BIS) is a complex one that combines business and organizational issues with applied information technology issues. Teaching such a multidisciplinary field, which requires not only knowledge of theoretical concepts and technical skills to use tools, but also a problem-oriented mindset and related problem-solving skills is a challenge in itself.

The second keynote speaker at the 35th Bled Conference will be Stefaan G. Verhulst.  His presentation is entitled “If you build it, will they come? 5 steps to make data efforts and policies more intentional and responsive”.

Review process

Dear authors,
We would like to thank you for your great response to our Call for Papers. Once again you have exceeded our expectations. In the next few days, we will be asking you, the authors, to assist us by reviewing a research paper. We hope that you will be willing and able to help us so that we can ensure a timely response to all submissions.

At the Bled eConference, the entire team shares a vision of building a community of researchers who support each other to expand their interests and encourage each other to exceed their research goals. We believe that involving authors in the review process will strengthen relationships within the community and lead to future collaborations.

Reviews are anonymous. In addition to authors, all Bled eConference reviewers are listed in the annual proceedings. Each year, one outstanding reviewer is selected and awarded by the Bled eConference outstanding paper and reviewer committee.

Dear colleagues,

due to many requests, we decided to extend the deadline for submission of research papers until March 15, 2022.

Deadlines for submission to Doctoral Consortium and Students Bazaar remain unchanged.

We are currently accepting submissions to 35th Bled eConference.

Please check call for papers and author guidelines before submitting your paper.
