Call for Papers

             Ninth International IEEE EDOC Conference (EDOC 2005)
             "The Enterprise Computing Conference"

             19-23 September 2005, Enschede, The Netherlands


             Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society (approval pending),
             IEEE Communications Society (approval pending)
             University of Twente / Centre for Telematics and 
Information Technology
             Telematica Instituut


The EDOC Conference is the primary annual event focusing on the
convergence of the paradigms, technologies and methods involved in
enterprise computing. EDOC 2005 is the ninth event in the successful
series of conferences, which since 1997 has brought together leading
researchers, architects and practitioners from both academia and
industry to discuss enterprise computing challenges and solutions.

Today the creation, operation and evolution of enterprise computing
systems raise concerns that range from high-level requirements and
policy modelling through to the deployment of specific implementation
technologies and paradigms, and involve a wide (and ever growing) range
of methods, tools and technologies. They also cover a broad spectrum of
vertical domains and industry segments, from electronic and mobile
commerce to real-time applications for the extended enterprise, e.g.,
business activity monitoring. 

The EDOC Conference emphasises the
integration of enterprise computing research and development results,
fostering an enterprise engineering approach that can address and relate
business, application and middleware levels. The themes of openness and
distributed computing, based on services, components and objects,
provide a useful and unifying conceptual thread for this purpose.


The EDOC seeks high-quality papers addressing the domains, the
life-cycle issues and the realization technologies involved in building,
deploying and operating enterprise computing systems. Suggested areas
include, but are not limited to:

* Enterprise computing - support for business processes
* Modelling for enterprise computing, integration and management, and
  relating business models to system specifications
* Enterprise computing concepts for specific domains, including 
        o Electronic and mobile commerce
        o Real-time applications for the extended enterprise,
          e.g. business activity monitoring
        o Vertical domains such as finance, telecommunications,
          automotive, aerospace, command & control and healthcare
* Enterprise requirements engineering and modelling
* Enterprise architecture design and modelling
* Design and modelling paradigms for enterprise computing, including
        o Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and other model-driven 
        o Service- and component-oriented development and architecture
        o Collaborative development and cooperative engineering
* IT aspects of inter-enterprise collaboration and virtual enterprises
* Integration of (legacy) enterprise applications and information
* Trust, security, privacy and QoS issues in enterprise computing
* Quality-assurance of enterprise computing systems
* Evolution and management of enterprise computing systems
* Integration of sensing and tracking technologies in enterprise systems
* Interoperability models, platforms, and techniques
* Realization technologies for enterprise computing, including
        o Ontologies and Semantic Web support
        o Middleware standards and systems, such as CORBA, WS, J2EE 
and .NET
        o Modelling and description languages, such as XML, RDF, OWL and 
* Enterprise computing tools and tool chains
* Organization and principles of software factories
* Case studies


Two types of paper submissions will be accepted: research papers and
experience reports. Research papers should describe original research
results that have not been accepted or submitted for publication
elsewhere. These papers will be evaluated for scientific or technical
contribution, originality, appropriateness and significance. Submissions
should not exceed 12 pages in the IEEE format. Experience reports should
describe new insights gained from case studies or the application of
EDOC technology in practice. These papers will be evaluated on their
appropriateness, significance and clarity of expression. Submissions
should contain at least 2,000 words and must not exceed 5,000 words.

All papers will be refereed by at least 3 members of the international
program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the
case of experience reports. All submissions must be in English.
Submissions should be made electronically in PDF (preferred) or
PostScript format via the electronic submission system via the EDOC
Conference Management system.


The selected best research papers will be considered for a special
issue of the International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems
(IJCIS) to be published in 2006

The selected best industry- and application-oriented papers will be
considered for a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on Systems, Man,
and Cybernetics (SMC) Part C: Applications & Reviews to be published in

A post-conference article will be published on IEEE IT Professional in 
Nov-Dec 2005. The article will cover the important topics and issues 
discussed in the conference. Please visit the IEEE IT Professional Web 
http://www.computer.org/itpro/ for IT Professional's plans for the year.


Prof. Dr. Frank Leymann
Professor of computer science
Director of the Institute of Architecture of Application Systems 
the University of Stuttgart, Germany

More speakers will be announced soon.


We are inviting proposals for one-day workshops to be held on the 19th
and 20th of September 2005. Workshops provide organizers and
participants with an opportunity to discuss current topics related to
enterprise computing in a small and interactive atmosphere. Workshops
can choose to concentrate in-depth on relevant research topics, on
application issues or on a combination of the two. Proposals should
include the workshop title, the names and a brief (200 word) biography
for each organizer and a summary of the workshop contents (approximately
1-2 pages i.e. 500-1000 words).


Paper submission due:           1 April 2005 
Workshop proposals due:         18 March 2005 
Acceptance notification:        16 May 2005
