Paper on Columbus - A Tool for Discovering User Interface Models in Component-based Web Applications accepted

A paper has been accepted for publication at the 13th International Conference on Web Information Systems and Technologies (WEBIST 2017). In the paper entitled "Columbus - A Tool for Discovering User Interface Models in Component-based Web Applications", the authors ( Adrian Hernandez-Mendez, Andreas Tielitz and Florian Matthes )present Columbus, a tool for supporting the reverse engineering process. The suitability of the extraction tool was assessed through evaluation of real-world projects.


Call for Papers for the 21st IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2017)


About the Conference

IEEE EDOC 2017 ( is the twenty-first conference in a series that provides the key forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of enterprise computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of models, methodologies, and engineering technologies contributing to intra- and inter-enterprise application systems. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer scientists, IT decision makers, enterprise architects, solution designers, and practitioners to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions from the perspectives of academia, industry, and government. The IEEE EDOC conference series emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches that address and relate business processes, people and technology. EDOC’17 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as experience papers on enterprise computing from industry. Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address current topics and issues in this domain.


The IEEE EDOC conference seeks high-quality contributions addressing the domains, life-cycle issues, and realization technologies involved in building, deploying and operating enterprise computing systems. Suggested areas include, but are not limited to:

- Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Application Architecture

- Model-Based Approaches

- Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Enterprise Service Architectures (ESA)

- Business Process Management (BPM)

- Business Analytics

- Business Rules

- Information Integration and Interoperability

- Networked Enterprise Solutions

- Enterprise Applications Deployment and Governance

- Emerging Trends in Distributed Enterprise Applications


Submission Guidelines
Two types of paper submissions are solicited: a) scientific research papers, and b) industry experience reports or case studies. Scientific research papers should describe original results not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers will be evaluated based on their scientific and technical contribution, originality, and relevance. In turn, industry experience reports should provide new insights gained in case studies or when applying enterprise computing technology in practice; industry experience reports shall further provide important feedback about the state of practice and pose challenges for researchers. These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance, and clarity.


Submissions should be full papers with 8-10 pages. All submissions must be made in PDF format and comply with the IEEE Computer

They should be made via the electronic submission system of the EDOC Conference Management system hosted on EasyChair:   


All papers will be refereed by at least 3 members of the international program committee. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and be made accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.


Post Conference Publication
The authors of a collection of selected papers will be invited to prepare a substantially revised and extended version of their papers for publication in a special journal issue. The journal will be announced in due course.

Paper on Extending Full Text Search for Legal Document Collections using Word Embeddings accepted

A full paper has been accepted for presentation and publication for the Jurix Conference 2016 in Sofia Antopolis entiteled "Extending Full Text Search for Legal Document Collections using Word Embeddings". The authors examine the applicability to use Word Embeddings, a recent trend in natural languange processing, to extend traditional full text search methods to include semantically similar parts of texts in a given corpus. The authors attempt to extract obligations for processors from the recently publised EU Data Protection Directive. The authors also show the applicability of the proposed method to identify similar provisions in a small corpus of publicly available rental contracts.

Report on Digital Mobility Platforms and Ecosystems published

A report entitled Digital Mobility Platforms and Ecosystems has been published. The authors of the TUM Living Lab Connected Mobility elaborate on how to support the digital transformation in the area of Smart Mobility and Smart City. The project bundles the relevant research, implementation, and innovation skills of the Technical University of Munich in the fields of informatic and transport research. The research project contributes to the design and implementation of open, provider-independent digital mobility platforms. The actual commercial implementation of these platforms is carried out by leading digital providers based on the market requirements of customer-oriented mobility solutions. Another significant achievement of the project is the networking of already established and currently arising mobility providers, service providers, developers and users on a personal, organizational and technical level. Thus, the project contributes to the establishment of a mobility ecosystem, which is necessary for the success of the mobility platform. Thereby, smaller companies and start-ups are enabled to develop their own digital mobility services with reduced financial, organizational and technical effort.
