8th SIGSAND/PLAIS EuroSymposium

on Systems Analysis and Design



September 25, 2015

Gdańsk & Sopot, Poland





The EuroSymposium on Systems Analysis and Design has the objective of promoting and developing high quality research on all issues related to systems analysis and design (SAND). It provides a forum to researchers and practitioners in SAND in Europe and beyond – to interact, collaborate and develop the systems analysis and design area. The event has the hybrid form – the accepted papers can be presented at the venue site or by videoconferencing.
