Please distribute this Call for Papers among your colleagues, and/or e-mail
lists you belong to, that may be possibly interested in this conference.

Experience the benefits of a Working Conference, an Industry Track and a
Doctoral Consortium in Prague, the "heart of Europe", as the capital of the
Czech Republic is often referred to. Come and visit us on a venue, that
breathes with history, architectural jewels, hearty cuisine and a unique
atmosphere, providing inspiration and conditions for an interesting program
with significant scientific advancement.


Modern enterprises face a strong pressure to increase agility and
competitiveness, to operate on the global market, and to engage in manifold
alliances. However, the vast majority of strategic initiatives in
enterprises fail, meaning that enterprises are unable to gain success from
their strategy. The key reason for these failures is the lack of coherence
and consistency among the various components of an enterprise. At the same
time, the need to operate as a unified and integrated whole is becoming
increasingly important. Currently, these challenges are dominantly
addressed from a functional or managerial perspective, as advocated by the
management and organization sciences, and as implemented by traditional
programs in business schools. Such knowledge is indeed necessary for
managing an enterprise, but it is insufficient for bringing about changes
in a fully systematic and integrated way. To do that, one needs to take a
constructional or engineering perspective.

In addition, both organizations and software applications are complex
systems, prone to entropy. This means that in the course of time, the costs
of bringing about similar changes increase in a way that is known as
combinatorial explosion. Entropy can be reduced and managed effectively
through modular design based on atomic elements.

Lastly, the individual persons in an enterprise, in cooperation, are
ultimately responsible for the effective and efficient operation of the
enterprise. They are also collectively responsible for the evolution of the
enterprise, in order to meet new challenges. These responsibilities can
only be borne if members have an appropriate knowledge and an effective
awareness of the construction of the enterprise given by a sound
engineering aproach.

Focus and Goal
The Enterprise Engineering Working Conference 2015 is the fifth working
conference in the emerging field of Enterprise Engineering. The goal of the
conference is to gather academics and practitioners in order to share
innovative research issues and practical experiences, and to facilitate
profound discussions about the challenges mentioned above. It is the
mission of the discipline of Enterprise Engineering to develop new,
appropriate theories, models, methods and other artifacts for the analysis,
design, implementation, and governance of enterprises by combining
(relevant parts of) management and organization science, information
systems science, and computer science. The ambition is to address
traditional topics in said disciplines from the Enterprise Engineering
Paradigm. The result of the efforts should be theoretically rigorous and
practically relevant.

Topics of interest to this working conference include, but are not limited

* Business Process Management
* Business Process Modeling and Simulation
* Business Rules
* Business Rules Management
* Collaborative, Participatory, and Interactive Modeling
* Component-Based System Development
* Domain Ontologies
* Domain Reference Ontologies
* Enterprise Architecture
* Enterprise Design and Implementation
* Enterprise Governance
* Enterprise Modeling and Simulation
* Enterprise Ontology
* Information System Architectures
* Information System Ontologies
* Information Systems Design
* Information Systems Development
* Modeling (cross-enterprise) Business Processes
* Ontology Implementation
* Reference Models for (cross-enterprise) Business Processes
* Service Oriented Architecture
* Service Oriented Design

The 5th Enterprise Engineering Working Conference in 2015 follows the
successful preceding conferences in 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2011 and the
preceding series of workshops (CIAO!'10, CIAO!'09, CIAO!'08, MIOS-CIAO'06,
MIOS-INTEROP'05, MIOS'04) held at the DESRIST, CAiSE and OTM Federated

We are looking for articles on current or recently finished research
projects as well as articles from practitioners. Based on our motivating
experience of the previous workshops and working conferences, the
Enterprise Engineering Working Conference 2015 is planned to be a real
working conference, providing ample time for profound discussions following
short presentations. 

The EEWC proceedings will be published in the Springer LNBIP series:
"Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing". (see:

Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be
unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must
conform to Springer's LNBIP format and should not exceed 15 pages,
including all text, figures, references and appendices. Submissions not
conforming to the LNBIP format or exceeding 15 pages will be rejected
without review. Information about the Springer LNBIP format can be found at
Springer LNBIP web page mentioned above. Three to five keywords
characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract.
