Fourteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (IEEE EDOC 2010)
            "The Enterprise Computing Conference"

Sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society and  IEEE Communications Society
Supported by OMG and The Open Group
In-cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT and ACM SIGAPP
Patrons: FAPES, CNPq and NP2Tec

25-29 October 2010, Vitória, ES, Brazil
*** Discounted Early Registration Deadline: 1st August 2010 ***


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.

We are glad to announce keynote speeches by Prof. Dr. David Harel (The 
William Sussman Professorial Chair at the Dept. of Computer Science and 
Applied Mathematics, The Weizmann Institute of Science), Prof. Dr. David 
Luckham (Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering, Stanford 
University) and Dr. Benjamin Grosof (Senior Research Program Manager at 
Vulcan Inc.). Check http://edoc2010.inf.ufes.br/keynotespeakers for 
further information.

Enterprise Computing Infrastructures
 - Autonomic computing and self-managing platforms
 - Grid computing approaches
 - Mobile enterprise services
 - Identity management and distributed access control


Workshops complement IEEE EDOC's main scientific program with 
presentations and discussions of both mature and preliminary project 
results, ideas, experiences, and knowledge in a way that is more 
interactive and more focused than paper sessions in the main conference 
program. To foster this interactivity and focus, workshops target a 
narrower range of topics.

Workshop proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and 
included in the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL) and the 
IEEE Xplore.

EDOC will host six satellite workshops on the first two days of the 
* Joint 5th International Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules 
for The Enterprise (VORTE 2010) - International Workshop on Metamodels, 
Ontologies and Semantic Technologies (MOST 2010)
* 3rd International Workshop on Dynamic and Declarative Business 
Processes (DDBP 2010)
* International Workshop on Models and Model-driven Methods for Service 
Engineering (3M4SE 2010)
* 6th International Workshop on ODP for Enterprise Computing (WODPEC 2010)
* International Workshop on Goal-based Business Process Engineering 
(WGBP 2010)
* 2nd International Workshop on Service-oriented Enterprise Architecture 
for Enterprise Engineering (SoEA4EE 2010)
