This page lists events relating to the use of ICT for environmental regulation. The site has no role in the organisation of these; please refer to the websites linked for further information.
The 10th BUIS-Tage 2018 (“CEMIS-Days”, Corporate Enviromental Management Information Systems) are organized by the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Research (COAST) of the University of Oldenburg. The focus is on “smart” cities and regions. The sustainable development of such structures is not limited to individual aspects – the interaction is crucial. The conference will present innovative methods and concepts in the interaction of science, business, politics and society.
The different information technology solutions and approaches are reflected in current (planned) smart cities and regions. These provide an indication of how the impact of sustainable ideas and solutions will impact the environment in the upcoming years. The conference aims to discuss innovative approaches (technical, economic and social) in expert sessions and show how corporate environmental information systems can influence these developments.

=== TRACK DESCRIPTION ===
Full version: http://ecis2018.eu/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/ECIS2018_Track29_Sustainably-digital.pdf
The aim of this theme track is to advance the ongoing, yet emergent, discussion on the role and relevance of information systems in the context of sustainability. It intends to provide thought leaders with a forum that accounts for the breadth of sustainability research in the information systems discipline in terms of environmental, economic, and social sustainability. Potential topics range from the design of systems and digital services for sustainability to the application of existing theories on change at the individual, group, organizational, and societal levels, as well as the development of new theory. We particularly look for rigorous research that shows that IS can have a "real impact" on the pressing issues of sustainability.
The track's topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Green IS and Green IT in organisations
- Sustainable IS-based Business Models (e.g., smart mobility, sharing economy)
- Ecological, social, and economic impacts of information technology
- IS-based Social Entrepreneurship
- IS enabled sustainability education and training
- Crowdsourcing and environmental collaboration
- Convergence between Green IS theory and practice
We are looking forward to seeing you in Portsmouth 2018!
