CFP: (VORTE'05) International EDOC Workshop on Vocabularies, Ontologies and Rules for The Enterprise - Deadline 30 June

[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement]
International EDOC Workshop on 
as part of the
The 9th International IEEE Enterprise
Distributed Object Computing Conference
19-23 September 2005, Enschede, The netherlands
Vocabularies, ontologies and rules are key components of a model-driven approach to enterprise computing in a networked economy. VORTE is the first of what 
we hope will be many workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners in areas such as philosophical ontology, enterprise modeling, information 
systems, semantic web, MDA (Model-Driven Architecture) and business rules to discuss the role of foundational and lightweight ontologies in the development 
of conceptual tools for enterprise computing. 
The Workshop Encourages Submissions on topics including 
(but not limited to) the following: 
* Business Vocabularies
* Business Rules
* Enterprise Integration and Interoperability
* Ontological Foundations for Conceptual Modeling and Metamodeling
* Vocabularies and Foundational Ontologies for Enterprise Information Systems
* Enterprise Modeling and Simulation 
* Foundations for the Model-Driven Architecture (MDA)
* Enterprise Computing and the Semantic Web
* Enterprise Reference Architectures 
* Enterprise Domain Engineering


All submissions will be formally peer reviewed. Submissions should be 4 to 8 pages long in IEEE Computer Society format and include the author's name, affiliation and contact details. They should be submitted by e-mail as postscript or PDF files before June 30, 2005, to

Authors will be notified of acceptance by July 29, 2005. At least one author of accepted papers should participate in the Workshop. 
Workshop proceedings will be published on three different media: First, the proceedings of the VORTE'05 workshop will be published as part of the CTIT Workshop Proceeding Series. Moreover, all accepted papers for the Workshop will appear in the IEEE Digital Library. Finally, they will be distributed during the conference in a CD-ROM together with the other workshop proceedings.
