<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?id=YU0FDhoHAx1Q>
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.

**Motivation**

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
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?id=YU0CBRoHAx1Q>
. The result
of the efforts should be theoretically rigorous and practically
relevant.

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

 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

**Organization**

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 conferences.

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.
**Publication**

The EEWC proceedings will be published in the Springer LNBIP series:
“Lecture
Notes in Business Information Processing
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?id=YU0CBBoHAx1Q>
“.

**Submission**

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.

For submissions please go to our Easychair
conference web page <http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?id=YU0FDxoHAx1Q>
and sign-up or sign-in, submit your abstract
and upload your paper taking in account the dates specified below.
