The 14th IFIP WG 8.1 Working Conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM) takes place in Riga, Latvia on November 24 - 26. It is hosted by the Riga Technical University. 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.

PoEM 2021 invites you to contribute by submitting paper(s) on topics related to Enterprise modelling. 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.
