Modern enterprises face a strong economical pressure to increase
competitiveness, to operate on a global market, and to engage in alliances
of several kinds. Agility thus has become the new guiding principle for
enterprises. This requires flexible organizational structures and business
processes, as well as flexible supporting information systems and a flexible
ICT-infrastructure. In addition, an enterprise needs to be able to easily
expand or shrink, be it through collaborations with other enterprises,
through mergers or acquisitions, or through insourcing or outsourcing of

In order to meet these economical requirements, enterprises rely
increasingly on the benefits of modern information and communication
technology (ICT). However, the appropriate knowledge to deploy this
technology as needed, and in an effective and efficient way, is largely
lacking, particularly knowledge regarding the collaboration in and between
enterprises and knowledge regarding the interoperability of their
information systems.

Up to last year, several successful MIOS workshops (Modeling
Inter-Organizational Systems) have been held. Based on the inspiring
experience of the 2005 workshop, the 2006 workshop will again be a real
workshop, providing ample time for discussions, during two days.
Consequently, the paper presentations will be short, covering only the
highlights. In addition, the focus will be on CIAO: the problems areas
Collaboration and Interoperability, and the application of Architecture and
Ontology in dealing with them.

We want to gather researchers working on topics concerning inter- and
intra-enterprise collaboration, and concerning the interoperability of
information systems, covering issues like business process modeling,
information systems modeling, enterprise and system ontology, enterprise and
system architecture. The goal of the workshop is to share innovative
research issues, and to facilitate profound discussions about them.

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

* Modeling cross-enterprise business processes
* Reference models for cross-enterprise business processes
* Collaboration theories (e.g., the language-action-perspective)
* Enterprise ontologies
* Ontology-based business interactions
* Enterprise branche specific ontologies
* Enterprise architectures
* Cross-enterprise workflow management
* Business rules and business protocols
* Business protocols standards
* Deriving IOS from cross-enterprise business processes
* Information system ontologies
* Information system architectures
* Component-based system development
* Business components and metamodeling
* Ontology-oriented web services (Pragmatic Web)
* Interoperability testing and verification
* Methodological standards
* Business domain standards, e.g., accounting, billing, payment,
  SCM, purchasing

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.

Accepted papers will be published along with the OTM 2006 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). Failure to commit to
presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a paper from the

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 please refer to
