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).

KEYNOTES

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

WORKSHOPS

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.

* 6th International Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules
  for The Enterprise (VORTE 2011)

The 6th International Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules for
The Enterprise (VORTE 2011) aims to discuss the role that (foundational and
domain) ontologies/vocabularies and business rules play in the conceptual
design and implementation of next generation enterprise solutions.
