Call For Papers

Thirteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2009)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference"
(IEEE approval pending)

31 August - 4 September 2009, Auckland, New Zealand

--- Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals ---


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 intra- and inter-enterprise distributed application systems. EDOC 2009 will be the thirteenth event in the series of conferences. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer science researchers, IT decision makers, IT architects, solution designers and practitioners to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions from the perspectives of academia, industry and government. The TEAA conference (Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture) became part of EDOC in 2008, which further enriches the scientific program and publication scope of the conference.
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 some 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.
IEEE EDOC 2009 welcomes 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 IEEE 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 ・a) scientific research papers, and b) 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, contribute important feedback about the state of practice and how current research is applied, and pose challenges for researchers. These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance and clarity.
Papers should be limited to 10 pages in length.
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 format via the electronic submission system of the EDOC Conference Management system (hosted at 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 and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.


We are inviting proposals for workshops on innovative research and industry-related topics. Workshops provide organizers and participants an opportunity to discuss current topics in enterprise computing in a small and interactive atmosphere. 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 detailed information about workshop submissions and relevant deadlines, see the EDOC 2009 web site.


We invite proposals for EDOC 2009 panels that will provide lively, interactive discussions of timely, significant and debatable (or even controversial) topics related to enterprise computing practice or dissemination of research results into practice. The panels should present the topics from several perspectives and different points of view and will engage the audience into a reflective dialog. Panel proposals should include the panel title; names, affiliations, contact details, and short biographies of the moderator and 3-4 panelists; and the panel abstract (about 250-500 words). For detailed information about panel proposals submissions and relevant deadlines, see the EDOC 2009 web site.


The authors of a set of selected papers will be invited to prepare a substantially revised and extended version of their papers for publication in a special journal issue (details will be announced later). In previous years, selected papers from EDOC have been published in Springer痴 Information Systems Frontiers (ISF), Enterprise Information Systems (EIS), and International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems (IJCIS).
