About the Conference

IEEE EDOC 2014 is the eighteenth conference in a series that provides the
key forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of enterprise
computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of models,
methodologies, and engineering technologies contributing to intra- and
inter-enterprise application systems. Since 1997, EDOC has brought
together leading computer scientists, 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 series
emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise applications engineering and
management, fostering integrated approaches that address and relate
business processes, people and technology.

EDOC'14 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as experience
papers on enterprise computing from industry. The main theme of EDOC'14 is
"Utilizing Big Data for Enterprise of the Future" and addresses the
four V's of Big Data in the context of enterprise computing

1. new ways to utilize and manage the large *volume* of data in
2. efficient techniques for handling the *velocity* of data where large
   amount of data are captured in a short time frame,
3. bringing together a large *variety* of different forms of data within
   and across enterprises, and
4. dealing with *veracity* or uncertainty of data leading to quality and
   trust in collected data.

Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address current topics and
issues in this domain.


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

    logistics, medicine and telecommunications)
  * Research and public sector collaboration (e.g. in e-health,
    e-government, e-science)

Submission Guidelines

Two types of paper submissions are solicited:

1. scientific research papers, and
2. industry experience reports or case studies.

*Scientific research papers* should describe original results not been
accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers will be
evaluated based on their scientific and technical contribution,
originality, and relevance. In turn, *industry experience reports*
should provide new insights gained in case studies or when applying
enterprise computing technology in practice; *industry experience
reports* shall further provide important feedback about the state of
practice and pose challenges for researchers. These papers will be
evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance, and clarity.

Submissions should be full papers with 8-10 pages. All submissions must
be made in PDF format and comply with the
[IEEE Computer Society Conference Proceedings Format Guidelines]
They should be made via the electronic submission system of the EDOC
Conference Management system hosted on EasyChair:


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 be made accessible through IEEE Xplore
and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.

Post Conference Publication

The authors of a collection of selected papers will be invited to
prepare a substantially revised and extended version of their papers for
publication in a special journal issue. The journal will be announced in
due course.

Important Dates:

* Abstract submission (optional): March 15, 2014
* Full paper submission due: March 22, 2014
* Conference paper acceptance notifications: May 13, 2014

* Workshop paper submissions: April 8, 2014
* Workshops paper acceptance notifications: May 27, 2014

* All camera-ready papers due: June 14, 2014
