SIGSAND is the Association for Information Systems (AIS) Special Interest Group on Systems Analysis and Design. SIGSAND provides services such as annual symposia, news, research and teaching tracks at major IS conferences, listserv and special issues in journals. The EuroSymposia were initiated by AIS Vice President Prof. Keng Siau as the SIGSAND-Europe Initiative.

The Polish Chapter of Association for Information Systems (PLAIS) was established in 2006 as the joint initiative of Prof. Claudia Loebbecke, former President of AIS and Prof. Stanisław Wrycza, University of Gdańsk, Poland. PLAIS co-organizes international and domestic conferences on systems analysis and design as well as on Business Informatics and Software Engineering, e.g., BIR 2008 – International Conference on Business Informatics Research and CAiSE’12 – International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering.


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 EuroSymposium is currently headed by the Advisory Board consisting of prominent researchers to guide this initiative.

Previous EuroSymposia were held at:
University of Galway, Ireland – 2006 University of Marburg, Germany – 2008 University of Gdańsk, Poland – 2007, 2011, 2012
