• Call for Papers

    ICISO 2016 will continue the effort of the international research community in the development of Organisational Semiotics, focusing not only on theory-building, but also on practical benefits gained through applications of methods and techniques derived from various OS approaches. The conference theme - Socially Aware Organisations and Technologies: impact and challenges - invites us to think ahead and to explicitly consider technology and organisations from a socio-responsible perspective.
