Enterprises must collaborate in order to prosper in the current extreme dynamic and heterogeneous business environment. Enterprise integration, interoperability and networking are the major disciplines that study how companies collaborate, communicate, and coordinate in the most effective way. These disciplines are well-established and supported by international conferences, initiatives, groups, task forces and European projects where different domains of knowledge are involved from different points of views and according to a variety of objectives (e.g., technological or managerial).
Enterprise Integration aims at improving synergy within the enterprise so that business goals are achieved in a more productive and efficient way. Enterprise Interoperability and Networking involves breaking down organizational barriers to improve synergies across organisations to achieve more productive collaboration.
Enterprise modelling, architecture, and ontology are the pillars supporting the achievement of enterprise integration and interoperability.
This eight edition of the workshop is organised as a venue of experts, part of the OTM’2013 Federated Conferences ( It aims at identifying issues in applications of interoperability in enterprise integration and networking that will be developed in future research projects. A keynote speech and a plenary session will be jointly organized with CoopIS’2013 conference.

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for practitioners and researchers interested in enterprise integration, interoperability and networking to meet, and exchange research and implementation ideas and share the most exciting results. It offers for practitioners and researchers with diverse backgrounds, an opportunity to present research papers, share experiences, and participate in open discussions. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, theoretical and/or empirical exploration of enterprise models, tools and theories, as well as case studies and practices related to:

* Enterprise Integration Modelling, Approaches, and Methodologies
* Interoperability of Enterprise Systems
* Future Internet Enterprise Systems
* Interoperability in the Context of Internet of Things and Internet of Services
* Model-Based Systems Engineering
* Formalisation of Interoperability Requirements
* Business Process Modelling and Languages
* Business Process vs. Business Intelligence
* Ontology for Interoperability of Enterprise Applications
* Cloud Computing and Wireless Techniques in Enterprise Integration
* Interoperability in the Context of Collaborative Networked Organisations
* Enterprise Integration, Interoperability and Networking in Business Ecosystems
* Enterprise Reference Models and Their Verification, Validation, and Accreditation
* Service Science
* Enterprise Interoperability as a Science
* Case Studies in Enterprise Integration and Interoperability
* Interoperability for Systems Sustainability and Thrivability

Abstract Submission Deadline May 18, 2013
Full Paper Submission Deadline May 25, 2013
Acceptance Notification July 2, 2013

OTM Conferences September 9 - 13, 2013

Each submitted paper will be refereed by at least three members of the Workshop Program Committee, based on its originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and may be of two types: Full Papers or Short Papers, both of which may discuss industrial experience or academic research. Full Papers should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references and appendices), and should not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format. Only electronic submissions in Adobe PDF format are acceptable. You can submit your contribution following this link:
The final workshop proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at:
Additionally, extended versions of the best papers from the Workshop may be considered for a submission in a special issue of an International Journal indexed by ISI Thomson Reuter.
Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a paper from the Conference Proceedings.

The Workshop Program will be scheduled for two days duration and it will be organised with oral presentations of papers followed by two rounds “group workshop café”, for debates on subjects related to the presented papers. At the end of the Workshop, a plenary panel will summarize the results, and a report will be prepared.
