The 9th Workshop on Service oriented Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Engineering

For engineering service-oriented enterprises in the era of cloud computing could EA notations be a lingua franca?


October 10, 2017, Québec City, Canada

Enterprise Engineering (EE) is the application of engineering principles to the design of Enterprise Architectures. It enables deriving the Enterprise Architecture from the enterprise goals and strategy and aligning it with the enterprise resources.
Enterprise architecture is used to map the enterprise goal and strategy to the enterprise’s resources (actors, assets, IT supports) and to support the evolution of this mapping. It also provides documentation on the assignment of enterprise resources to the enterprise goals and strategy. There are different paradigms for creating enterprise architecture. The most important is to
encapsulate the functionalities of IT resources as services. By this means, it is possible to clearly describe the contributions of IT both in terms of functionality and quality and to define a service-oriented enterprise architecture (SoEA).

The goal of the workshop is to develop concepts and methods to assist the engineering and the
management of service-oriented enterprise architectures (SoEA) and the software systems supporting them.

Topics for Discussion

During the workshop we will discuss the following topics:

1. Alignment of the enterprise goals and strategy with the SoEA
- Interdependencies between services and business goals
- Concepts and methods to align services with the business strategy
- New potentials and trends created by services to reengineer business processes
- Quality issues and non-functional requirements for SoEA
- Coherence of services with compliance requirements

2. Digital enterprises
- New trends in digitization for enterprise architecture and enterprise engineering
- Patterns for digital enterprise architecture
- Impacts of digitized products on enterprise architecture
- Business transformations accompanying the augmentation of physical products with companion services

3. SoEA and influence of social and big data in Enterprise Engineering
- Trends in SoEA to use the capabilities of Big Data (volume, variety, velocity, veracity)
- Impacts of social production on the SoEA
- Creation of weak ties in SoEA
- Collective decision processes in SoEA
- Fitting SoEA with cloud computing; Designing Enterprise Architectures using cloud-services

4. Compliance of SoEA with cloud-based resources
- Concepts and methods for mapping enterprise services to cloud-based resources
- Trends in information system architectures for services
- Concepts and methods for mapping non-functional requirements to cloud-based resources

5. Design of SoEA
- Specifications of business, software, platform and infrastructure services
- Matching business services with business processes
- Lifecycle of business, software, platform and infrastructure services
- Monitoring the fulfilment of non-functional requirements
- Benchmarks and key performance indicators for services
- Approaches the continual improvement of services

6. Management of SoEA
- Impacts of SoEA on the compliance and governance requirements
- Meta-services for business, software, platform and infrastructure services
- Building service (value) nets -consisting of business, software, platform and infrastructure services
- Meta-services for cloud-environments

Full papers (8-10 pages in the IEEE-CS format) describing mature results are sought. In addition, short/position papers (4-6
pages in the IEEE-CS format) may be submitted to facilitate discussion of recent research results and ongoing projects.
Industry experience reports provide new insights gained in case studies or when applying service-oriented EA for enterprise
engineering are also welcome. The paper selection will be based upon the relevance of a paper to the main topics, as well as
upon its quality and potential to generate relevant discussion. All contributions will be peer reviewed based on the complete
version, being full or short.

Please note that all submissions should be made in PDF format and comply with the [IEEE Computer Society Conference
Proceedings Format Guidelines]( The
proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and be made accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE
Computer Society Digital Library.

Please submit your paper to Easychair at

At least one author of each accepted workshop paper will have to register for the whole EDOC 2017 conference and attend
the workshop to present the paper. Analogously to previous years, there will be no workshop-only registration at EDOC 2017.
If a paper is not presented in the workshop, it will be removed from the workshop proceedings published in the IEEE Xplore
digital library.

The SoEA4EE workshop has been a full day workshop in conjunction with EDOC’09 in New Zealand, with EDOC’10 in
Brasil, EDOC’11 in Finland, EDOC 2012 in China, EDOC’2013 in Canada, EDOC’2014 in Germany, EDOC’2015 in
Australia and EDOC’2016 in Austria. The programs of the previous editions can be reached from the portal of the
SoEA4EE series:

Expected results
All papers will be published in the workshop wiki ( before the workshop, so that everybody can learn about
the problems that are important for other participants. The workshop will consist of long and short paper presentations,
brainstorming sessions and discussions. Workshop papers will be published in a second volume of the EDOC 2017
conference proceedings.

Important dates
Workshop paper submission deadline: June 16, 2017
Workshop paper notification: July 16th, 2017
Workshop paper camera-ready due: August 6th, 2017

Selmin Nurcan – University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne, France
Rainer Schmidt – Munich University of Applied Sciences, German
