Present CFP : 2015

The 10th TEAR workshop is organized in conjunction with the 27th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2015), June 8-12, Stockholm, Sweden.

The international TEAR workshop series brings together Enterprise Architecture (EA) researchers from different research communities and provides a forum to present EA research results and to discuss future EA research directions.

The field of Enterprise Architecture (EA) has gained considerable attention over the last of years. EA is important because organizations need to adapt increasingly fast to changing customer requirements and business goals. This need influences the entire chain of activities of an enterprise, from business processes to IT support. Moreover, a change in a particular part of the overall architecture may influence many other parts of the architecture. For example, when a new product is introduced, business processes for production, sales and after-sales need to be adapted. It might be necessary to change applications, or even adapt the IT infrastructure. Each of these fields will have its own (partial) architectures. To keep the enterprise architecture coherent and aligned with the business goals, the relations between these different architectures must be explicit, and a change should be carried through methodically in all architectures. In contrast to traditional architecture management approaches such as IT architecture, software architecture or IS architecture, EA explicitly incorporates “pure” business-related artifacts in addition to traditional IS/IT artifacts. For Enterprise Architecture the focus is on the overall enterprise and concerns its organization, its components, the relationship between components and principles governing its design and evolution.

Topics relevant for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Case studies on EA
Combining BPM and EA
Drivers and obstacles of EA dissemination
EA and e-government
EA and organizational theory
EA and system development
EA and capability-based planning
EA business cases
EA communication and marketing
EA for small and medium-sized companies
EA governance and integration into corporate/IT governance
EA reference models, meta models and frameworks
EA usage in corporate strategic planning
Enterprise modeling, EA and MDA
Evolution of an EA
Incorporation of knowledge management and software engineering in EA
Measurement, metrics, and maturity models for EA artifacts and processes
Methodologies and research theory for EA research
Processes and patterns for EA development, mastering, communication and enforcement
Quality of EA models
Tool support for EA
Viewpoints in EA
EA analysis for decision-making, particularly for investments
Architectural Thinking in day-to-day decision making
Investigations of the EA needs of decision-makers
EA in the context of extended enterprises and large ecosystems
Managing a growing scope of concerns: legal, compliance, social, security, etc.
EA in the context of complexity and uncertainty
EA and the creation of EA research and teaching centers
Collaboration and sense-making in the context of EA
EA methods and tools that go beyond traditional software engineering
Experimenting with novel modelling and simulation approaches


Papers should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to TEAR as described in the topics section. Papers submitted for consideration must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration.

We solicit two types of papers:

Full papers (12 pages) describing significant original research in the topics listed above, and
Short papers (6 pages) discussing controversial issues or thought-provoking ideas not yet fully developed

The proceedings of all the workshops held in conjunction with CAiSE 2015 will be published as a single volume in the Springer LNBIP series.

All papers must be prepared in accordance with the Springer/LNBIP camera-ready format and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the submission website.

All submissions should include title, authors, and full contact information. Detailed instructions for authors are available on the Springer website
