ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

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
domain.

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.

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.


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 (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).

WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Please email the workshop proposal either in PDF or TXT to Georg
Grossmann, georg.grossmann@unisa.edu.au
<mailto:georg.grossmann@unisa.edu.au> with the subject line "EDOC 2011
Workshop Proposal", before Monday, 6 December, 2010 including the
following information.

1. Title of the workshop
2. Proposed duration of the workshop (half day, one day, two days)
3. Name, affiliation, and e-mail addresses of the workshop chairs
4. Extended abstract (about 500-1000 words; approximately 1-2 pages)
   of the workshop, explaining the importance of the workshop topics,
   its fit within and complementarity with the EDOC 2011 conference, intended
   audience, and other relevant issues that are not adequately covered in
   the preliminary Call for Papers
5. Preliminary Call for Papers (not all Program Committee members have
    to be confirmed at the workshop proposal submission time, although it
    is certainly beneficial to have some preliminary acceptances)
6. Information about distribution channels (e.g., list-servs) that
   will be used for advertising the workshop
7. History of the workshop (if it was held before) with some
   statistics of the size of the workhop (ie., how many papers were
   presented)
8. Short biographies (about 200 words each) of all workshop chairs,
   including information about past experience in organizing/chairing
   conferences and workshops.
