Aims and objectives

The PoEM conferences contribute to establishing a dedicated forum where the use of Enterprise Modeling (EM) in practice is addressed by bringing together researchers, users and practitioners. The main focus of PoEM is EM methods, approaches, and tools, and how they are used in practice. More specifically, the goals of the conference are to further a better understanding of the practice of EM and improve the theory behind the practice, contributing to improved EM practice and to the sharing of knowledge. PoEM 2011 will be the 4th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modeling. It follows the successes of PoEM 2008, 2009 and 2010, each of which attracted over 50 participants from all over the world, representing both industry and academia. This indicates that Enterprise Modeling has gained substantial popularity both in the academic community and among practitioners. The interactive format of the earlier conferences sparked constructive interaction between research and practice. The target for PoEM 2011 is to further strengthen this interaction by organizing a collaborative working session within the conference program.

Up-to-date information about PoEM: .


Topics relevant for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following: evaluation of EM methods from a practice perspective, the process of modeling and guidelines for modeling, management of EM projects, use of EM in different contexts, facilitation and group dynamics, the competency of modelers and modeling teams, model and process quality aspects, reuse of enterprise models, modeling languages, tools and workbenches, enterprise model management, success factors in EM, teaching the practice, EM and agile development, enterprise knowledge architectures, standardization issues and reference models, method engineering in EM, concordance between EM and information systems development.

Event Format

PoEM is a highly interactive event. The conference will be organized at a venue close to the Oslo city centre, yet with hotels, bars and restaurants close to the conference site, in order to stimulate discussion and open exchange of ideas and experiences. In addition to highly interactive paper sessions the event will include a number of parallel think-tank sessions focusing on various topics, aiming for further development of issues and directions shared between practice and academia.

Paper types

* Experience papers present problems or challenges encountered in practice, relate success and failure stories, or report on industrial practices. The focus is on 'what' and on lessons learned, not on an in-depth analysis of 'why'. The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given. Readers should be able to draw conclusions for their own practice.
* Research papers describe original research contributions (theoretical, methodological or conceptual) to the area of EM. A research paper should clearly describe the situation or problem that is tackled, the relevant state of the art, the position or solution suggested and the potential or the evaluated benefits of the contribution.
* Evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions with scientific means. Scientific reflection on problems and practices in industry also falls into this category. The topic of the evaluation presented in the paper as well as its causal or logical properties must be clearly stated. The research method must be sound and appropriate.
* Idea papers can describe completely new research positions or approaches, in order to face to a generic situation that arises because of, for instance, new methods and tools or new types of emerging EM challenges. They should describe precisely the situation and demonstrate the shortcomings of current methods, tools, ways of reasoning, meta-models, etc.

Submission guidelines

The conference proceedings will be published in Springer Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). Papers should be submitted in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must conform to Springer's LNBIP format and should not exceed 15 pages. Submissions not conforming to the LNBIP format or exceeding 15 pages will be rejected without review.
