The IEEE EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise 
computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of engineering 
technologies and methods contributing to intra- and inter-enterprise 
distributed application systems. EDOC 2010 will be the fourteenth event 
in the series of conferences. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together 
leading computer science researchers, IT decision makers, IT architects, 
solution designers and practitioners to discuss enterprise computing 
challenges, models and solutions from the perspectives of academia, 
industry and government.

Enterprise computing is based on a wide (and ever growing) range of 
methods, models, tools and technologies. The resulting applications also 
cover a broad spectrum of vertical domains and industry segments, from 
electronic and mobile commerce to real-time business applications for 
collaborating enterprises. In recent years, technologies related to 
business processes integration, management, execution and monitoring 
have become some of the top areas of interest in enterprise computing. 
Today, the creation, operation and evolution of enterprise computing 
systems create challenges that range from high-level requirements and 
policy modeling to the deployment and maintenance of solutions in and 
across customer businesses.

The IEEE EDOC Conference emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise 
applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches 
that can address and relate processes, people and technology. The themes 
of openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and 
objects, provide a useful and unifying conceptual framework.

IEEE EDOC 2010 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as 
papers on enterprise computing industry experiences. Expert panel 
discussions and keynotes will address hot topics and issues in the domain.

IEEE EDOC 2010 will be realized in Vitória, ES, Brazil. Vitória is one 
of the three island capitals of Brazilian states, and is located in the 
Southeastern region, the most developed of Brazil. The city lies between 
the Atlantic Ocean and the Serra do Mar mountain range and is 
strategically located close to the big urban centres of the country and 
is, on average, an hour by plane from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.


The IEEE EDOC conference seeks high-quality contributions addressing the 
domains, the life-cycle issues and the realization technologies involved 
in building, deploying and operating enterprise computing systems.

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted a) scientific research 
papers, and b) industry experience reports or case studies. Scientific 
research papers should describe original results that have not been 
accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers will be 
evaluated for scientific or technical contribution, originality, 
appropriateness and significance. Experience reports should describe new 
insights gained from case studies or the application of enterprise 
computing technology in practice, contribute important feedback about 
the state of practice and how current research is applied, and pose 
challenges for researchers. These papers will be evaluated based on 
their appropriateness, significance and clarity.

All papers should be limited to 10 pages in length. All submissions must 
comply with the IEEE Computer Society conference proceedings format 
guidelines (http://www2.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting) 
(please use the latest template as there have been updates recently). 
Submissions must be in English. Submissions should be made 
electronically in PDF format via the electronic submission system of the 
EDOC Conference Management system (hosted at 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edoc2010). All papers will be 
refereed by at least 3 members of the international program committee.

The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer 
Society Press and will be accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE 
Computer Society Digital Library. The IEEE reserves the right to exclude 
a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE 
Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.


The authors of a set of selected papers will be invited to prepare a 
substantially revised and extended version of their papers for 
publication in a special journal issue (details will be announced 
later). In previous years, selected papers from EDOC have been published 
in Springer's Information Systems Frontiers (ISF), Enterprise 
Information Systems (EIS), and International Journal of Cooperative 
Information Systems (IJCIS). Additionally, selected papers will be 
considered for publication of an extended version in a volume of 
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) under the title 
"Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture".


We are inviting proposals for workshops on innovative research and 
industry-related topics. Workshops provide organizers and participants 
an opportunity to discuss current topics in enterprise computing in a 
small and interactive atmosphere. Proposals should include the workshop 
title, the names and a brief (200-word) biography for each organizer and 
a summary of the workshop contents (approximately 1-2 pages, i.e. 
500-1000 words). Further information about workshop proposal submissions 
can be found in the call for workshops at
