 Fifteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2011)

 "The Enterprise Computing Conference"



 29.8.-2.9. 2011, Helsinki, Finland

 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).

 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

 domain) ontologies/vocabularies and business rules play in the

 conceptual

 design and implementation of next generation enterprise solutions.
