** The Workshops
The TEAR workshop series brings together 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 years. For defining the term architecture most agree on the ISO/IEC
42010:2007 Standard, where architecture is defined as the “fundamental
organization of a system, embodied in its components, their relationships to
each other and the environment, and the principles governing its design and
evolution”. For EA the focus is on the overall enterprise in contrast to
partial architectures such as IT architecture or software architecture. EA
explicitly incorporates business-related artefacts in addition to traditional
IS/IT artefacts. By providing an enterprise-wide perspective EA is a means for
organisations to coordinate their adaptations to increasingly fast changing
market conditions which influence the entire chain of activities of an
enterprise, from business processes to IT support.

The main objective of this workshop series is to bring the different communities
of EA researchers together and to identify future directions for EA.

The PRET workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners
interested in enterprise transformation. More specifically, the PRET events aim
to bridge between theory and practice, between researchers and practitioners.

Modern day enterprises are in a constant state of flux. New technologies, new
markets, globalisation, mergers, acquisitions, etcetera are among the “usual
suspects” which require enterprises to transform themselves to deal with these
challenges and new realities. Most information systems practitioners will find
themselves working in a context of enterprise transformation. One could even go
as far as to claim that a business oriented perspective on information systems
is really about enterprise transformation, where enterprise transformation
involves the use of methods and techniques from enterprise engineering,
enterprise modelling, enterprise architecture, and information systems
engineering. As a field of study, enterprise transformation requires a close
interaction between practice and academia. What works and does not work
requires validation in real-life situations. Conversely, it is in industrial
practice where challenges can be found that may fuel and inspire researchers.

** The Open Group Conference
The Open Group Conferences provides a venue to practitioners and academics to
gain valuable knowledge, and participate in The Open Group’s Forums and Work
Groups that are developing the next generation of open, vendor-neutral standards
and certifications. Those who attend The Open Group Conferences benefit from the
opportunity to leverage the expertise of other experts, learn from others’
experiences, and delve into content most relevant to their jobs and
organizations.

Conferences also present an opportunity for attendees to access a wide range of
experts, practitioners and specialists in a non-sales environment, and build
professional relationships beneficial to you and your organization.

The Open Group hosts four quarterly Conferences as well as regional Conferences
hosted by our local partners around the globe.

** Why Join Forces?
The TEAR and PRET workshops already joined forces during the Enterprise
Engineering Week in 2010, in Delft, The Netherlands. At that time, the visitors
of the two workshops, as well as the organisers, saw a clear benefit for future
collaboration between the two events. Even though both events have a distinct
identity, their topics and audience show an overlap that makes them natural
partners.

Joining forces with The Open Group Conference also provides a unique opportunity
to bridge between practitioners, standardisation efforts, and academic research,
in the areas of enterprise transformation and enterprise architecture.

** Topics of interest
Topics of interest to the TEAR/PRET workshops include but are not limited to:
- Case studies of enterprise transformations
- Case studies on the use of enterprise architecture
- Methodologies and approaches for enterprise transformation
- Methodologies and approaches for enterprise engineering
- Architecture governance
- The role of change management in enterprise transformation

- Drivers and obstacles of EA dissemination
- EA and e-government
- EA/ET and kernel theory
- EA/ET and system development
- EA business cases
- EA communication and marketing
- EA/ET governance
- EA in university and executive education
- EA principles
- EA reference models, meta models and frameworks
- EA usage in corporate strategic planning
- EA usage potentials for the networked enterprise
- Enterprise modelling and analysis
- Modelling of EA dynamics
- Evolution of an EA
- Incorporation of knowledge management and software engineering in EA
- Managing complexity in EA
- Maturity models for EA artefacts and processes
- Measurement, metrics, analysis, and evaluation of EA artefacts and processes
- Methodologies for EA research
- Processes and patterns for EA management
- Research theory and practices in EA context
- Tool support for EA
- Viewpoints in EA

** Where to Submit: TEAR or PRET
- If a proposed contribution has a strong research perspective and
addresses/involves the means of EA the paper best fits the TEAR workshop.
- If a proposed contribution has a strong practice oriented perspective and
addresses the enterprise transformation, it best fits the PRET workshop
- If you are in doubt, please ask the workshop chairs.

During the reviewing process, the PC may decide to move papers between the two
workshops when the paper is considered to fit better in the other workshop.

** Submission
Papers should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to
TEAR/PRET as described above. Papers submitted for consideration must not have
been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review
elsewhere. All papers must be prepared in accordance with the Springer/LNBIP
camera-ready format and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the joint
submission website:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=tear2012pret5

In the submission system, authors can indicate if they consider their paper more
suitable for PRET or for TEAR. All papers are not to exceed 20 pages, including
all references and figures. Note, however, that a clear focus of papers, and
effective use the length of a paper to convey the contribution of a paper, will
be among the evaluation criteria for selecting papers. Longer does not
necessarily mean better!

All submissions should be blinded for review. Detailed instructions for authors
are available on the Springer website:
http://www.springer.com/dal/home/computer/lncs?SGWID=1-164-7-72376-0

** Review and Evaluation Criteria
Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of
contribution, soundness, quality of presentation, clarity of focus, effective
use of a paper’s length, and appropriate comparison to related work. The
program committee as a whole will make final decisions about which submissions
to accept for presentation at the conference, and in the context of which
workshops.

** Proceedings
All accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by
Springer Verlag as a part of its LNBIP series. At least one author of accepted
papers is expected to present the results at the TEAR/PRET 2012 workshops.

** Journal Publication
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of
their article to the Journal of Enterprise Architecture (JEA).
