Call For Papers

11th TEAR Workshop 2016, Vienna
The 11th TEAR workshop is organized in conjunction with IEEE EDOC 2016, September 5-9, Vienna, Austria.

The international TEAR workshop series brings together Enterprise Architecture (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. EA is important because organizations need to adapt increasingly fast to changing customer requirements and business goals. This need influences the entire chain of activities of an enterprise, from business processes to IT support. Moreover, a change in a particular part of the overall architecture may influence many other parts of the architecture. For example, when a new product is introduced, business processes for production, sales and after-sales need to be adapted. It might be necessary to change applications, or even adapt the IT infrastructure. Each of these fields will have its own (partial) architectures. To keep the enterprise architecture coherent and aligned with the business goals, the relations between these different architectures must be explicit, and a change should be carried through methodically in all architectures. In contrast to traditional architecture management approaches such as IT architecture, software architecture or IS architecture, EA explicitly incorporates “pure” business-related artifacts in addition to traditional IS/IT artifacts. For Enterprise Architecture the focus is on the overall enterprise and concerns its organization, its components, the relationship between components and principles governing its design and evolution.


Topics relevant for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Case studies on EA
Combining BPM and EA
Drivers and obstacles of EA dissemination
EA and e-government
EA and organizational theory
EA and system development
EA and capability-based planning

EA for small and medium-sized companies
EA governance and integration into corporate/IT governance
EA reference models, meta models and frameworks
EA usage in corporate strategic planning
Enterprise modeling, EA and MDA
Evolution of an EA
Incorporation of knowledge management and software engineering in EA
Measurement, metrics, and maturity models for EA artifacts and processes
Methodologies and research theory for EA research
Processes and patterns for EA development, mastering, communication and enforcement
