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.

Call for Papers - International Workshop on Programming Language And...

International Workshop on Programming Language And Systems Technologies for Internet Clients
(PLASTIC 2011)

October 24th
Portland, Oregon
In conjunction with SPLASH 2011

Today's Internet users expect to access Internet resources using increasingly capable and ubiquitous client platforms. This trend has resulted in a wide-ranging diversification of hardware devices supporting various form factors and interaction modes, a choice of web browsers offering varying levels of performance, security and standards compliance, as well as the emergence of domain-specific uses of general-purpose Internet-related technologies, exemplified by Rich Internet Applications (RIAs) and site-specific browsers. Despite the heterogeneity, all these platforms implement a common set of standards and technologies. While the resulting high level of interoperability can be seen as a major reason for the Internet's success, its constraints can also be viewed as limiting progress in client technologies.

This workshop focuses on both innovative solutions in the area of Internet client software that improves on the current state-of-the-art while respecting the confines dictated by interoperability, as well as bold, new ideas that break with the status quo. Consequently, we solicit both long (regular) papers and short (position) papers (submission guidelines below) and plan on providing adequate time for discussions between paper presentations. In order to further encourage interaction between the workshop participants, the workshop will also include a panel session. The CFP for the workshop (in plain text) can be found a here.


The list of topics include, but are not limited to:

  • compilation and runtime techniques for Internet client programming languages
  • integration with server-side technologies, multi-tier programming languages and environments
  • concurrency and parallelism support for Internet clients
  • hardware acceleration of Internet client computational capabilities
  • support for heterogeneity of Internet client environments (such as desktops, tablets and phones)
  • Internet client security
  • Internet client application deployment
  • software engineering support (e.g. IDEs, refactoring, frameworks) for client-side Internet applications
  • alternative Internet client programming languages and models
  • novel approaches to Internet client software stack architecture


All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format using the EasyChair PLASTIC submission page. Submissions of long (regular) papers must not exceed 10 pages in the ACM SIGPLAN 11 point format. Submissions of short (position) papers must not exceed 4 pages in the ACM SIGPLAN 11 point format. The workshop proceedings will be published both in the ACM Digital Library and on the PLASTIC's website. Templates for Word and LaTeX are available at:


Submission deadline: August 19th
Acceptance notification: September 9th
Camera-ready version: TBD
Workshop date: October 24th

Call for Papers - Track Enterprise Transformation auf der MKWI 2012

29.02.–02.03.2012 in Braunschweig


Große Organisationen sind nach wie vor einem ständigen Wandel ihrer Umwelt ausgesetzt. Die Klassiker dieses Wandels sind Aufkommen und Wegfall von Technologien, (globalen) Märkten, Geschäftsmodellen oder ganzen Organisationen in Mergers & Acquisitions. Beispiele sind der Untergang des Geschäftsmodells klassischer Festnetztelefonie, der Wandel der Energieerzeugung von großen konzentrierten Stromproduzenten hin zu kleinen und verteilten Produzenten sowie das schnelle Entstehen neuer Unternehmen, mit erheblichen Markt­kapitali­sierungen wie Google oder Facebook.

Um mit diesem Wandel umzugehen, müssen sich Organisationen selbst regelmäßig transformieren. Solche Transformationen spiegeln sich in veränderten Strategien, Produkten und Geschäftsprozessen sowie in Änderungen der zugrundeliegenden IT-Systeme wider. Da viele Transformationen umfassend sind, bedarf es eines Koordinationsmechanismus, so dass alle Teile zu den Zielen der Transformation als Ganzem beitragen. Diese Koordination betrifft den Transformationsprozess und das Transformationsergebnis. Das traditionelle Projektmanagement bietet diese Koordinationsfunktion nicht, da es vor allem projektbezogene (lokale) Optimierungen anstrebt ohne die globalen Ziele – das grosse Ganze der Transformation – zu berücksichtigen. Ein in der Vergangenheit viel diskutiertes und zum Teil auch wirksames Koordinationsinstrument stellt das Enterprise Architecture Management (EAM) dar. Das Problem von EAM ist jedoch, dass es – obwohl meist anders gedacht – nur in den seltensten Fällen über die IT-Domäne hinaus Wirkung entfaltet hat und noch deutlich seltener außerhalb der IT verankert wurde.

Der Track Enterprise Transformation will darum explizit den Rahmen von EAM verlassen, um der Integration von Fach- und Technologiesicht, einem Hauptthema der Wirtschaftsinformatik, bei der Transformation großer Organisationen besser Rechnung zu tragen.

Mögliche Themen der Beiträge

  • Governance der Transformation
  • IT und Technologieinnovationen als Transformationstreiber
  • IT/Business Alignment
  • Transformationsszenarien (M&A, Outsourcing etc.)
  • Management der Transformation
  • Kulturelle Aspekte der Transformation
  • Modelle und Methoden der Transformation
  • Enterprise Architecture Management und Transformation
  • Koordinationsmechanismen und Selbstorganisation
  • Multiprojekt- und Programmmanagement
  • Transformation von Industrien (z.B. Energie, Telekommunikation, Gesundheitswesen, Medien etc.)
  • Zusammenspiel von Innovations- und Transformationsmanagement

Wichtige Termine

15.09.2011 Einreichung der Beiträge
15.11.2011 Ergebnisse der Begutachtung
Einreichung finaler Beiträge (Camera ready)
29. 02.–02. 03. 2012 MKWI 2012 in Braunschweig



Formatvorlagen, formale Anforderungen sowie das Konferenzsystem zur Einreichung der Beiträgen sind auf der Konferenzwebseite der MKWI 2012 unter verfügbar.
