Stefan Strecker is Full Professor at the University of Hagen in Germany where he
holds the Endowed Chair of Information Systems Development and heads the Enterprise Modelling Research Group.
His research and teaching focus is on Conceptual and Enterprise Modelling and its applications to managerial analyses and decision-making. He has contributed to devising, designing and specifying a number of domain-specific modelling languages and modelling methods in the domains of, for example, organisational performance measurement, risk assessment, and auditing.
From 2016 to 2019, Professor Strecker acts as the chairman of the Business Informatics section (1,200 members from academia and industry) of the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik) .
He has revived 'Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures - International Journal of Conceptual Modeling' (EMISAJ), a scholarly peer-reviewed open access journal, as Editor-in-Chief (https://emisa-journal.org) and serves on the editorial board of Business & Information System Engineering (BISE).
Involved in numerous scientific conferences and workshops, he acts as program co-chair of the 20th IEEE International Conference on Business Informatics (IEEE CBI 2018), and has held appointments as track chair and member of the programme committee of workshops and conferences in the field of enterprise modelling.

20th IEEE Conference on Business Informatics (IEEE CBI 2018)

The 20th IEEE Conference on Business Informatics (IEEE CBI 2018) is the leading international forum for state-of-the-art research in Business Informatics. CBI 2018 will be held in Vienna, Austria from July 11th to July 14th, 2018, and intends to bring together researchers from all research disciplines and research fields involved in the multidisciplinary area of Business Informatics.


37th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2018)

The International Conference on Conceptual Modeling has established itself as the premier research conference in conceptual modeling. The 37th International Conference on Conceptual Modeling (ER 2018) provides a leading international forum for disseminating the latest research on conceptual modeling. It brings together academic and industrial scientists who conduct research in theories of concepts underlying conceptual modeling, methods and tools for developing and communicating conceptual models, techniques for transforming conceptual models into effective implementations, and the impact of conceptual modeling techniques on databases, business strategies and information systems development etc.


TLCM 2018

The 1st Workshop on Teaching and Learning Conceptual Modeling (TLCM) at the PoEM Working Conference series provides a forum to exchange experiences on using and applying theories of teaching and learning when teaching conceptual modelling as well as novel ideas for teaching and learning conceptual modeling based on those theories, and to discuss research on teaching and learning conceptual modeling.

Perspektiven | Wirtschaftsinformatik-Podcast ist eine Gesprächsreihe zu Themen der Wirtschaftsinformatik, die von Prof. Strecker moderiert und produziert wird.


Enterprise Modelling und Information Systems Architectures - An International Journal
