[Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this announcement]

2nd International EDOC Workshop on

as part of the
The 10th International IEEE Enterprise
Distributed Object Computing Conference (EDOC)
16-20 October 2006, Hong Kong


Vocabularies, ontologies and business rules are key components of a
model-driven approach to enterprise computing in a networked economy.
VORTE 2006 is the second workshop on an EDOC conference that intends to
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 domain ontologies in the conceptual development
and implementation of next generation tools for enterprise computing.

The Workshop Encourages Submissions on topics including
(but not limited to) the following:

* Business Vocabularies
* Business Rules and Constraint Modeling
* 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)
* Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) approaches to Enterprise Computing Systems
* Enterprise Computing and the Semantic Web
* Enterprise Reference Architectures
* Enterprise Domain Engineering
* Domain specific Business Information and Application Engineering
* Ontologies and organizational Semiotics
* Ontological Approaches to Content and Knowledge Management


All submissions will be formally peer reviewed. Submissions should be 6 to
8 pages long and MUST be submitted in IEEE Computer Society format and
include the author's name, affiliation and contact details. They should be
submitted by e-mail as LaTeX or PDF files before June 16th, 2006, to

Authors will be notified of acceptance by July 28, 2006. At least one
