A Digital Business Ecosystem is a network of organizations such as producers, suppliers, distributors, customers, competitors, government agencies, etc. that together design, deliver, and use a particular product or service in an (at least partially) digital environment. In analogy to biological ecosystems, the term business ecosystem thereby describes that the actors are interdependent and the system is constantly changing due to the entry and exit of actors. Actors influence each other by both cooperating to achieve common goals and competing for scarce resources.
Therefore, the aim of this workshop is to present and discuss current research results as well as innovative concepts from practice on Digital Business Ecosystems. Interdisciplinary aspects (including computer science, management & economics, engineering) are especially important. This interdisciplinary approach adequately captures Digital Business Ecosystems with their complex structure, processes and societal challenges from different perspectives.
The workshop has three sessions which can be joined separately. After short keynote speeches, the topics will be deepened interactively with the participants.
