Call For Papers

Twelfth International IEEE EDOC Conference (EDOC 2008)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference"

15-19 September 2008, Munich, Germany

--- Call for papers ---

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 enterprise distributed application systems. EDOC 2008 will be the twelfth event in the series of conferences, which since 1997 has brought together leading computer science researchers, IT decision makers, IT architects, solution designers and practitioners from academia, industry and government to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions.
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 business processes integration, management, execution and monitoring have become one of the top areas of interest in enterprise computing. Today, the creation, operation and evolution of enterprise computing systems create challenges that range from high-level requirements and policy modeling to the deployment and maintenance of solutions in and across customer businesses.
The IEEE EDOC Conference emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches that can address and relate processes, people and technology. The themes of openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and objects, provide a useful and unifying conceptual framework.
The 2008 EDOC conference will welcome 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. The TEAA conference (Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture) will become part of EDOC in 2008 and further enrich the scientific program and publication scope of the conference.

The EDOC conference seeks high-quality contributions addressing the domains, the life-cycle issues and the realization technologies involved in building, deploying and operating enterprise computing systems. Suggested areas include, but are not limited to --

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted �?�scientific research papers and 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. These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance and clarity.
Experience reports and a small selection of short papers from the scientific contributions will be allocated a maximum of seven pages, full length scientific papers a maximum of 10 pages in the conference proceedings.
All submissions must comply with the IEEE Computer Society conference proceedings format guidelines. All submissions must be in English. Submissions should be made electronically in PDF (preferred) or PostScript format via the electronic submission system via the EDOC Conference Management system. 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.

We are inviting proposals for workshops both on innovative research and business related topics. Workshops provide organizers and participants an opportunity to discuss current topics in enterprise computing in a small and interactive atmosphere. Workshops can choose to concentrate in-depth on research topics, but can also be devoted to application issues. Proposals should include the workshop title, the names and a brief (200-word) biography for each organizer and a summary of the workshop contents (approximately 1-2 pages i.e. 500-1000 words).
For details of workshop submissions and relevant deadlines, see our web site

POST CONFERENCE PUBLICATION "Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture"
The authors for a set of selected papers will be invited to prepare a substantially revised and extended version of their papers to be published in the Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture�?�volume, to appear in the Springer Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP).
