ENBIS invites presentations from a wide range of applications: industry, manufacturing, administration, marketing, sales, risk management, logistics and service. Contributions about in-novative applications that have made an impact on the overall success of the respective business or industry are especially welcomed.

Further topics that, historically, have received much attention at ENBIS conferences are:
