Communications Society Supported by OMG and The Open Group 
In-cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT and ACM SIGAPP

25-29 October 2010, Vitória, ES, Brazil


*** Workshop paper submission deadline: 17 April 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) and Prof. Dr. 
David Luckham (Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering, Stanford 
Check http://edoc2010.inf.ufes.br/keynotespeakers for further information.

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.

Papers should be submitted before 17 April 2010.

The workshops held in conjunction with EDOC 2010 are as follows:

* Joint 5th International Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules 
for The Enterprise (VORTE 2010) - International Workshop on Metamodels, 
Ontologies and Semantic Technologies (MOST 2010): The objective of 
VORTE-MOST 2010 is to bring together researchers and practitioners 
interested in the relation between ontology and information models, and 
theoretical topics such as formal ontology, formal logics, conceptual 
modelling, enterprise computing, computational linguistics, cognitive 
science, knowledge representation, the Semantic Web, and MDE 
(Model-Driven Engineering), as well as more practical topics as a result 
of applications of ontologies in diverse fields, such as knowledge 
management, informatics for education, ontology-based information and 
database integration, information processing (retrieval, classification 
and extraction). For more information please visit 

* 3rd International Workshop on Dynamic and Declarative Business 
Processes (DDBP 2010): This workshop will be an opportunity for 
participants to exchange opinions, advance ideas, and discuss 
preliminary results on current topics related to dynamic and declarative 
business processes and on supporting business process evolution. A 
particular interest will be taken in bridging theoretical research and 
practical issues. To this end, contributions stating open problems, case 
studies, tool presentations, or any other work assessing the practical 
significance of dynamic and declarative business processes by means of 
concrete examples and situations, will be particularly welcome. For more 
information please visit http://edoc2010.inf.ufes.br/ddbp2010.

* International Workshop on Models and Model-driven Methods for Service 
Engineering (3M4SE 2010): This workshop aims at helping the convergence 
of research on model-driven development and practical application of the 
model-driven approach in the area of enterprise computing and service 
engineering. The workshop addresses questions with respect to the 
requirements on, concepts for, properties of and experience with models 
and model-driven methods for service engineering in the area of 
enterprise computing. A special focus will be on the combined 
application of model-driven and semantic approaches in the different 
phases of the service lifecycle. For more information please visit 

* 6th International Workshop on ODP for Enterprise Computing (WODPEC 
2010): WODPEC aims to continue to provide a discussion forum where 
researchers, practitioners, system modelers, tool developers and 
representatives of standardization bodies can meet and exchange 
experiences, problems and ideas related to the ODP framework for system 
specification, its practical application and long term evolution, and 
its use in conjunction with other architectural practices and approaches 
(e.g., MDA, SOA, CBA, EDA) in the realm of Enterprise Distributed 
Computing. For more information please visit 

* International Workshop on Goal-based Business Process Engineering 
(WGBP 2010): WGBP aims to bring together researchers and practitioners 
in the areas of goals and business process engineering to discuss how 
these two complementary areas may be integrated and further developed. 
This way, goals could be applied as a natural modeling construct to 
capture the requirements of a system to-be and to motivate business 
processes that underlie organizations. For more information please visit 

* 2nd International Workshop on Service-oriented Enterprise Architecture 
for Enterprise Engineering (SoEA4EE 2010): This workshop will focus on 
research in the area of alignment of the enterprise goals and strategy 
with the service-oriented enterprise architecture, design of 
service-oriented enterprise architecture and mapping of service-oriented 
enterprise architecture to enterprise resources. For more information
