The current economic environment requires for the companies to develop their capacity to interact and exchange information both internally and with external organisations (partners, suppliers, customers, citizens…) or, in other words, to develop their Enterprise Interoperability (EI). Since industry’s need for EI is one of the key drivers for research into the connected Digital Twins, I-ESA’24 aims to be an agora for the practitioners and researchers who wish to extend the theories, findings, best practices and business discourses on how to improve Enterprise Interoperability through Digital Twins.

The industry and academia will find at I-ESA’24 an outstanding opportunity to exchange experience and problems on business interoperability in their daily operations. The I-ESA conferences and workshops have been recognized as a tool to lead and generate an extensive research and industrial impact in the field of Interoperability for Enterprise Systems and Applications. I-ESA’24 brings together the world’s leading researchers and practitioners in the area of enterprise interoperability, and it is a unique forum for the exchange of visions, ideas, research results and industrial experiences, dealing with a wealth of interoperability research subjects.


Full and original scientific papers of high quality are invited to I-ESA’24. I-ESA’24 conference welcomes submissions of scientific papers directly connected with the Conference Topics indicated below, but also papers demonstrating industrial case studies in the context of digital and green transition, which address interoperability in relation to aspects of Industry 5.0 such as human-centricity, sustainability, and resilience.
