Workshop Theme
As part of their e-business activities, enterprises create, share,
recombine, and process an ever increasing amount of data and documents
that range from simple transactional data to complex business process
In many respective processes, multiple spheres overlap, e.g.
(1) inter- with intra-organizational data sources in collaborative
(2) master data with transactional data,
(3) regular data with behavioral aspects of processes, or
(4) facts with normative assertions.
Since business entities are members of multiple value chains, same as
data sources are often used in multiple contexts and processes, there
are often conflicting requirements on the representation of such data.

All this in combination makes e-business data engineering a very
challenging task, already at the level of a single company but even more
in value chains. Also, respective modeling choices may have long-lasting
and far reaching impact, and affect
(1) operational efficiency,
(2) business process agility,
(3) the range of analytical tasks for decision support, and
(4) strategic options.
Eventually, those choices determine the current and future degree of
automation in content and process integration.

While e-business standards in general help, standardization alone does
not solve the problem. This is because yielding a consensual
representation takes time, consumes resources, and constrains an
entity’s ability to capture individual details. Moreover, the cost of
implementing and enforcing the standards is sometimes prohibitive for
small businesses. Proprietary representations, on the other hand, hamper
interoperability, and complicate B2B integration.
In service-oriented architectures (SOAs), this complexity is further
increased by the behavioral dimension of e-business interactions, e.g.
services choreography and orchestration.

This workshop aims at providing a venue for discussion and the exchange
of ideas on data and knowledge engineering issues in the dynamic
environment of e-business, enterprise computing, and business services
and transformation.

In particular, we are inviting full and short papers, posters, and
hands-on demonstrations on the following topics:

- Business data integration
- Business data management
- Business data privacy and security
- Business decision support
- Business intelligence
- Business modeling and analysis
- Business process integration
- Business process management
- Business process monitoring
- Business process intelligence
- Business transformation outsourcing
- Case studies and applications
- Corporate Knowledge Management
- Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
- Decision Support Systems
- E-commerce content
- E-commerce standards
- Enterprise Application Integration
- Enterprise architecture
- E-procurement and sourcing
- Folksonomies and Collaborative Tagging in business applications
- Human Resources Management
- Legal applications
- Ontologies and use of Semantic Web technology
- Product catalog management
- Product lifecycle management
- Product specification standardization
- Semantic Business Process Management
- Semantics-supported Business Intelligence on product data
- Semantic Web Services
- Sensors and actuators
- Service-oriented architectures (SOAs)
- Solution design and delivery
- Specification and monitoring of Service-Level Agreements
- Supply Chain Management
- Tools tailored to applications in these areas
- Ubiquitous / context-aware services
- Business value and cost modeling and analysis
- Virtual enterprises
- Web services

Paper Submission and Publication

We are inviting the submission of
· full papers (up to 8 pages),
· position papers (up to 5 pages),
· posters (2-page extended abstracts or final posters), and
· hands-on demonstrations (2-page descriptions of the demo)
describing original research on the listed or related topics.

Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author
Guidelines to prepare your papers using the 8.5'' x 11'', two-column

Submissions must be in the form of PDF documents using our conference
submission system, which will be available at



At least one author is required to attend the workshop and present the
work. Attendance of the workshop requires registration to the main
CEC/EEE 2008 conference.

Full papers will be published in the regular conference proceedings by
the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be included in the IEEE Digital

Selected papers will be invited for fast-track review of the
International Journal on Semantic Web and Information Systems (IJSWIS,

Review Process
Each paper will typically be reviewed by three members of the Program
Committee. Reviewers will score submissions according to their
contribution, originality/novelty, technical depth/merit, and quality of
presentation. For short position papers, clarity of exposition and the
degree of innovation will be sufficient, while for full papers, a clear
technical contribution is expected.
