16 th IFIP working conference on virtual enterprises
Enterprises and society in general are increasingly challenged by unexpected disruptive events. The acceleration of globalization, demographic shifts, regional economic crises, changes in regulations, and rapid technological evolution lead to turbulences and instability. Additional factors contributing to this changing environment include global warming, terrorism, cyber-attacks, scarcity of resources, raising of nationalisms, racism and religious conflicts, among others.
Collaborative Networks (CNs) can provide tools to help organizations cope with unexpected changes and disruptions, particularly when exploring rapid consortia formation and dynamic structural re-organization mechanisms. CNs may also support addressing new business opportunities in these highly dynamic scenarios.
PRO-VE 2015 calls for contributions addressing these challenging questions:
A plurality of scientific communities in Computer Science, Electrical and Industrial Engineering, Economics, Organizational Management and Socio-Human Sciences are encouraged to submit focusing on interdisciplinary solutions.
