EDOC 2022 : Enterprise Design, Operation and Computing
Conference Series : Enterprise Distributed Object Computing
Call For Papers
26th International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2022)
Enterprise Design, Operations and Computing
3-7 October 2022, Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
CALL FOR PAPERS
EDOC 2022 is the 26th conference in the EDOC series (http://edocconference.org/) that provides a key forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of Enterprise Computing. EDOC addresses the full range of models, methodologies, and engineering technologies contributing to building and evolving intra- and inter-enterprise software systems. From 2022 on, EDOC will be spelled-out "Enterprise Design, Operations and Computing" to reflect the broad range of aspects of interest to the conference.
EDOC 2022 will be collocated with the 28th International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems (CoopIS), and will take place in the beautiful region of South Tyrol in the Italian Alps.
EDOC 2022 calls for contributions with a special emphasis on the theme of designing and operating "Flexible Enterprises". This year's theme reflects an ever changing world under the influence of disruptive events, trends and technologies, as well as the increasing role of artificial intelligence.
In this context, new concepts and approaches are required: (a) to address pressing challenges in domains like healthcare, advanced manufacturing, finance, environmental management and sustainable agriculture, supply chain management and others, while ensuring compliance with ethical and legal principles, as well as long-term interoperability and resilience of enterprise systems; and (b) to leverage technologies such as digital twins, machine learning, IoT, big data analytics, distributed ledgers/blockchain in trusted enterprise practices. A particular challenge of interest in this scenario is the combined use of data-driven approaches (including machine learning) and other AI techniques with established modeling approaches for Enterprise Computing (including Enterprise Architecture Modeling, Business Process Modeling, Model-Driven Enterprise Systems Engineering, Conceptual Modeling, etc.) towards "augmented" enterprise systems.
EDOC 2022 welcomes high-quality scientific submissions as well as experience papers on enterprise computing from industry. Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address current topics and issues in this domain. (A separate call-for-papers will be issued for a demonstration track, a doctoral consortium and specific workshops.)
Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
* Enterprise and Systems Architecture
- Methods, Frameworks and Tools supporting Architecture

- Complex event processing and event-driven architectures
- Data quality and trustworthiness
- Combining data-driven and symbolic modeling approaches
Two types of submissions are solicited:
a) scientific research papers, and
b) industry experience reports or case studies.
Scientific papers should describe original results, not having been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers will be peer reviewed based on their scientific and technical contribution, originality, and relevance.
Industry experience reports should provide insights into applying enterprise computing technology in practice, feedback about the state of practice, and/or pose challenges for researchers. These reports must be based on actual implementation and have at least one author with industry affiliation. These papers will be evaluated based on appropriateness, significance, and clarity.
All papers will be refereed by at least 3 members of the international programme committee. The proceedings will be published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
Full papers should follow the Springer LNCS style (see https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). The page limit for submitted papers (as well as for final, camera-ready papers) is 16 pages (including references). An Overleaf LaTeX template is available for your convenience (https://www.overleaf.com/latex/templates/springer-lecture-notes-in-computer-science/kzwwpvhwnvfj#.WuA4JS5uZpi).
Each paper must have one of its authors registered to EDOC’22 before the camera ready deadline. The organizers reserve the right to remove a paper from the proceedings if no author is registered by the camera ready deadline. Only papers presented during the conference will be published in the proceedings.
Papers should be submitted at https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=edoc2022
*If you are a returning contributor to EDOC, please note the paper format change as well as the adoption of a strict deadline policy and mandatory abstract submission.*
The authors of selected papers will be invited to prepare a substantially revised and extended version to a Special Issue in Elsevier's Information Systems (JCR 2020 Impact Factor 2.309).
Mandatory abstract submission (strict deadline): 20 May 2022
Full paper submission (strict deadline): 27 May 2022
Full paper notification: 4 July 2022
Workshop paper submission deadline: 6 July 2022
Workshop paper notification: 10 August 2022
Camera ready paper & author registration (main conference and workshops): 15 August 2022
Conference dates: 3-7 October 2022
