Call for Papers

The 16th IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2012)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference"
Main Theme: When Services in Cloud Meet Enterprises
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Communications Society (Pending)
September 10-14, 2012, Beijing, China

About the conference
The IEEE EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise
computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of models,
methodologies, and engineering technologies contributing to intra- and
inter-enterprise distributed/cloud application systems. EDOC 2012 will
be the sixteenth 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. 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 2012 welcomes high quality scientific
submissions as well as papers on enterprise computing industry
experiences. This year, the main theme will be on the impacts of
services and cloud to enterprise architecture. Expert panel
discussions and keynotes will address hot topics and issues in the

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. Suggested areas include, but are not limited to: Enterprise
Architecture and Enterprise Application Architecture
• Model based approaches
• Service oriented architectures (SOA) and enterprise service
architectures (ESA)
• Service oriented architecture governance
• Business process management (BPM)
• Business analytics
• Business rules
• Information integration and interoperability
• Networked Enterprise Solutions
• Enterprise applications deployment and governance
• State of the art in distributed enterprise applications
• Enterprise Computing Infrastructures

Submission guidelines
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. 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=edoc2012, which will be
available later). 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.

Post conference publication
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. 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).
