The 2021 Enterprise Engineering Working Conference (EEWC 2021) will be the
11th working conference addressing the field of Enterprise Engineering. It
will be a special conference, as the CIAO! network
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=X3neXoUZAmikU9kEn4hnTLKTRY+cC5tovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbIkZmZLdhE7GpWZv>
, the EE-Network.eu
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=eP4idwVl5/2Vl6vNk1uGKLKTRY+cC5tovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbIlZmZLdhE7GpWZv>
, and the EE Institute
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=33kPQESiZmGja1Hxv4HvnrKTRY+cC2tovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbIkpmZLdhE7GpWZv>
will join forces to become an integrated network, concerned with the
development of theory-based and practice-proven methods, techniques, and
tools for enterprise engineering. 

The new network will provide a platform to further strengthen our
activities, such as:

 academic events, and the EEWC
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=lq1zgWZXXSaJpw1xE0og9rKTRY+cCztovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbIlZmZLdhE7GpWZv>
working conference in particular,
 the development of an EE body of knowledge,
 joint research projects,
 outreach events such as EE Insights,
 a doctoral consortium and joint PhD training and supervision,
 courses and certification for practitioners.

The formal kick-off of the new network will take place during this year's
EEWC.
Due to Covid-19 and related travel restrictions, it has been decided that
EEWC 2021 will take place, as in 2020, in an on-line format.

Nevertheless, the goal remains to gather academics and practitioners in
order to share innovative research issues and practical experiences,
balancing rigour and relevance, as well as to facilitate profound
discussions on the discipline of enterprise engineering
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=vrIRDx9kPEiKoyDLE2cTYLKTRY+cC6tovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbImJmZLdhE7GpWZv>
. Furthermore, as in earlier years, the proceedings of EEWC 2021 will be
published as post-conference proceedings in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Business Information Processing
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=RnJcWvoPJ72qAFwSj445/LKTRY+cC9tovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbInpmZLdhE7GpWZv>
(LNBIP). The use of post-conference proceedings enables the authors to
update their submissions based on the feedback from reviewers, as well as
the discussions during the conference, which truly underlines the/ working
conference/ character of EEWC.

In maintaining the online format, we will take this opportunity to keep our
EEWC conference in a community-driven working event.

More specifically, the plan is to have each paper go through the following
process:

 Each submitted paper (via EasyChair) will be reviewed by three reviewers.
The reviewers will be asked if the current version of the paper is good
enough to be presented at the discussion sessions.
 With sufficient time before conference paper presentation/discussion
rounds, PC-chairs will, based on reviews, make a selection of papers that
are to be presented. Some of these papers will already obtain confirmation
of publication in Springer proceedings, some will be conditionally accepted
and, after the conference, might be accepted.
 The authors will then have the option to provide an updated version of
their papers to be presented at the online conference. In addition, they
will be requested to provide a 15 minute pre-recorded video with a
presentation as a fallback solution in case the online presentation fails
due to bandwidth problems. These should be provided before the actual
conference presentations will take place, according to the dates below.
 Close to the conference days, the community will be able to read the
updated version of the paper watch the pre-recorded video and initiate
discussions on an online forum.
 During the actual conference days, video-meetings will be organised in
which the papers (and presentations) will be discussed in more detail.
 After the conference, authors are required to submit an updated version of
their paper taking into account the discussions and chairs' feedback. The
latter will be re-assessed by the chairs and, eventually, by some
reviewers. Based on this, the final selection of papers to be included in
the post-proceedings will be made.

The above structure also allows us to be rather flexible in terms of
submission deadlines as per the dates specified below.

**Proceedings**

The proceedings of the working conference will, as always, be published in
Springer's Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing
<http://ciaonetwork.org/phplist/lt.php?tid=RnJcWvoPJ72qAFwSj445/LKTRY+cC9tovEBUS5hlkjZIxrudbInpmZLdhE7GpWZv>
(LNBIP).

As in the previous years, the EEWC working conference will use
post-conference proceedings. This enables the authors to update their
submissions based on the feedback from reviewers, as well as the
discussions during the working conference. Additionally, it provides us
with more flexibility regarding the submission and reviewing process.

Topics of interest to for the EEWC include, but are not limited to:

 Specific aspects of enterprises:
 
 Business processes
 Business rules

**S*ubmission***

Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be
unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must
