TEE 2014 : 8th Workshop on Transformation and Engineering of Enterprises
Call For Papers
Aims and objectives
New technologies, new markets, globalisation, mergers and acquisitions are among the ╥usual suspects╙, which require enterprises to transform and engineer themselves to deal with these challenges and new realities. The Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises involves the use of methods and techniques from business process management, business engineering, organizational change management, enterprise architecture, enterprise modelling, and information systems engineering. As a field of study, the Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises requires validation in real-life situations. Conversely, it is in industrial practice where challenges can be found that may fuel and inspire researchers. In addition, as a domain of study, the Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises can be approached from different research perspectives, including management science, organizational sciences, social sciences, as well as the engineering sciences and business informatics. The TEE workshops are set up in such a way that it attracts an audience from both industry and academia with their respective perspectives.
The TEE series of workshops is an evolution, and merger, of the successful PRET series and the AppEER workshop. The scope of the TEE series includes both the original scopes of PRET and AppEER. TEE is a highly interactive event and will be co-located with the 16th IEEE Conference on Business Informatics (CBI 2014) in Geneva, Switzerland on July 14-17, 2014.
Papers should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to TEE topics as listed. Research papers should reflect the mission of TEE, which is bringing together academia and the industry regarding the indicated topics. Research papers and case studies should stimulate the discussion and the synergy between these two ╥worlds╙, with the ultimate objective of improving the field of Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises. Typical research papers describe: challenges from industry for the academic world, practical applications of theory and/or research results regarding the Transformation & Engineering of Enterprises. Paper submission from industry as well as from young researchers (MSc or PhD researchers) is strongly encouraged. Research results can be described in an elaborated way, since the typical paper TEE is aiming for is between 15-20 pages long (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 papers must be prepared in accordance with the IEEE camera-ready and should be submitted in PDF format via: http://goo.gl/c5onKy. Work submitted for consideration must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. At least one author of accepted papers is expected to present the results at the TEE workshop. All accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings, published by IEEE (tbc).
We encourage both, practitioners and academics to share their insights concerning following topics:
Case studies in the field of TEE
Cultural aspects of transformation
Design and implementation of CIO Offices
Emergent issues in the field of TEE
Enterprise architecture management
Enterprise modeling languages
Evolution, maturity, measurement and quality of research in the field of TEE
Frameworks, methods, analysis techniques and other instruments for research in the field of TEE
Outsourcing of business and/or IT
Psychological and philosophical aspects
Roles and skills in enterprise transformation
Simulation of enterprise design/models
Management of transformation, programs and projects
