Motivation
----------
The digital revolution has just begun. Globalization, increasing 
competitive pressure, mergers and acquisitions and, above all, new 
technological innovations force many enterprises to undergo drastic 
changes that cannot be coped with traditional change and 
restructuring programs. 

Flexibility has become the new guiding principle for companies and 
requires flexible structures and business processes based on modern 
IT-infrastructures. At the core of this change processes are inter-
organizational systems (IOS) which enable the integration of business 
processes between companies thus increasing flexibility of the 
business system and improving inter-company collaboration in value 
networks. 

Those inter-organizational information systems are enabled by 
innovations in information and communication technologies, primarily 
the emergence of the Internet. However, many current practice 
initiatives in this field have not fully met expectations. One of 
the main reasons for this can be found in a lack of proven procedures 
to define cross-enterprise business processes and in the high level 
of complexity associated with the modeling of large value networks.

Goal
----
The objective of this workshop is to gather researchers working on 
different emerging topics concerning inter-organizational systems 
and cross-enterprise collaboration, covering issues ranging from 
modeling, conception and realization of inter-company application 
systems to standards and integration of application systems. The 
goal of the workshop is to present innovative research approaches, 
especially around the questions of

* How should cross-enterprise business processes be modeled? 
* How should IOS be modeled, designed and implemented?
* How should respective business semantics be defined and what are 
  the respective challenges in e-business standardization?

Topics of interest to this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Cross-enterprise business processes, e.g. 

* Modeling cross-enterprise business processes (methodology, tools, 
  etc.)
* Reference models for cross-enterprise business processes 
* Cross-enterprise workflow management
* Automatic negotiation and assessment of business protocols 

IOS modeling, e.g.

* Modeling IOS from cross-enterprise business processes
* Modeling IOS architectures and compositions
* System components, application components, frameworks and 
  metamodeling
* Comprehensive protocols stacks
* Interoperability, testing and verification

Business semantics and standardization, e.g.

* Methodological standards
* Business domain standards, e.g. accounting, billing, payment, 
  SCM, purchasing
* Business protocols standards

Submission Requirements
-----------------------
We are looking for articles on current or recently finished research 
projects as well as articles from practitioners. Papers should contain 
3000 - 5000 words and should be submitted in PS, PDF or MS-Word format 
via the following URL:
http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/mios/2004/papers/submit

Accepted papers will be published along with the OTM 2004 Workshop 
Proceedings on Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science. Author 
instructions and style sheets can be found at the Springer site 
(http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).

The authors of the best workshop papers will be invited to send an 
extended version of the paper to be published in the Journal of 
Enterprise Information Management. For information about the journal
