Third Call For Papers

Fifteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2011) "The Enterprise Computing Conference"

29.8.-2.9. 2011, Helsinki, Finland

http://www.ieee-edoc.org/ & http://edoc2011.cs.helsinki.fi/


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 2011 will be the fifteenth event

in the series of conferences. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together

leading computer science researchers, IT decision makers, enterprise

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

enterprise architecture and business processes management 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 goal and policy modeling through functional

and non-functional requirements to the deployment and maintenance of

solutions in and across customer businesses.

The IEEE EDOC Conference emphasizes a holistic view of enterprise

applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches

that can address and relate processes, people and technology. Openness

and distributed computing, based on services, components and objects are

important themes.

IEEE EDOC 2011 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



The IEEE EDOC conference seeks high-quality contributions addressing the

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). 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=edoc2011). 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). A

special issue with selected and extended papers of EDOC 2010 will appear

at the Enterprise Information Systems journal (published by Taylor &

Francis, with an impact factor of 2.809 in JCR 2009).


The EDOC 2011 programme will feature a number of keynote lectures,

including presentations by

* Prof. Terry Halpin - a Principal Scientist at LogicBlox (headquartered in

  Atlanta, USA) and a Professor at INTI International University (Malaysia)

* Prof. Michael P. Papazoglou - the chair of Computer Science and the

  director of the ERISS at the University of Tilburg, the Netherlands

* Dr. Richard Hull - research manager in Business Informatics, IBM T.J. Watson

  Research Center


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.

You can find short summaries of the workshops below. Please check the

detailed scope and submission instructions at each workshop page.

* 2nd International Workshop on Models and Model-driven Methods

  for Service Engineering (3M4SE 2011)

The 2nd International Workshop on Models and Model-driven Methods for Service

Engineering aims to discuss how service engineering, founded on advances in

modeling and model-driven methods, can contribute to the alignment of business

and software systems.

* 5th International Workshop on Advances in Quality of Service

  Management (AQuSerM 2011)

Service Level Management (SLM) is the process of managing the Quality of

Service (QoS) demanded by clients and offered by providers. AQuSerM is

concerned with recent developments in QoS management: the monitoring of widely

distributed services, particularly new paradigms of enterprise system (SOA

and the Cloud), dynamic adaptation strategies and the necessity for more

sophisticated prediction and diagnostic analysis techniques.

* 1st International Workshop on Dynamic Business-to-Business

  Collaboration (DynaCo 2011)

The Workshop on Dynamic B2B Collaboration aims at bringing together

contributions to address the complex challenges of collaboration between

organizations from business, conceptual, and technological points of view.

* 4th International Workshop on Evolutionary Business

  Processes (EVL-BP 2011)

The International Workshop on Evolutionary Business Processes focuses on

evolutionary approaches in business process management to support the

change of software systems during their life cycle.

* 3rd International Workshop on Service-oriented Enterprise

  Architecture for Enterprise Engineering (SoEA4EE 2011)

The goal of the SoEA4EE workshop is to develop concepts and methods to

assist the engineering and the management of service-oriented enterprise

architectures and the software systems supporting them.

* 6th Trends in Enterprise Architecture Research (TEAR 2011) Workshop

The TEAR workshop series objective is to bring together communities of

Enterprise Architecture (EA) researchers and practitioners and to

identify future directions for EA research with special focus on service

oriented paradigms.
