Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone the conference which was originally planned for February and to conduct the conference in online mode. The primary goal of the conference is to bring together the researchers from academia and industry as well as practitioners to share ideas, problems and solutions relating to sustainability in software engineering, business models and management. The target is to focus on the latest trends, techniques and applications areas adapting sustainability.
