Call for Workshop Proposals
Workshop proposals should be submitted until January 7, 2013 per e-Mail to Christian Pichler ( CBI?13 workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to focus intensively on a specific topic related to the conference scope.
Often, workshops concentrate on an emerging topic of technical interest, unique area of application for enterprise computing, or a community-wide issue that deserves specialized attention.
Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the topic, the goals of the workshop, and the size of the interested community. Proposals should identify one or more chairs and several other individuals willing to serve on an organizing committee and assist with publicity and reviewing.
Proposals should be 2- 4 pages and contain at least the following information:
Description: What will the workshop be about? Where is the relation to topics addressed in the CBI?13 conference?
Goals: What do you expect will come out of the workshop? How will the workshop change participants? understanding of the area?
Format: How will the workshop sessions be scheduled? How much time will be used for discussion, panel discussions, paper presentations, invited talks, or other methods for encouraging communication and consensus? Organizers are encouraged to focus on mechanisms other than traditional paper presentations and to differentiate themselves clearly from typical conference sessions.

Description of CBI Domains:
A. Business Process Engineering and Enterprise Modeling
1. Business Process Engineering
Business Informatics deals with information processes in organizations, industries and society at large. This concept of "information in motion" links to business processes deeply. Processes are the expression of the behavior of organizations and this behavior leaves footprints in the form of artifacts of all sorts, including information. Thus, Business Informatics profoundly intersects with the social enterprise from a unique perspective, namely, the integration of information and people's behavior.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Business Process Architecture and Process Taxonomies
* Information-centric Business Process Models
* The liaison between Organizational Routines and Processes
* Process as Enacting Organizational Capabilities
* Transformation and Business Process Centers of Excellence: Case Studies
* Management and Governance for Business Process Engineering
* Business Process Analytics and Decision-Making
* Tooling for Business Process Engineering

2. Enterprise Modeling
Enterprise modeling is concerned with the modeling of different aspects of an enterprise (goals, capabilities, organizational structures, business processes, resources, information, people, constraints, etc.) and their interrelationships. Accordingly, enterprise modeling offers different perspectives of an enterprise suitable for strategic planning, organizational design and software engineering. It covers the notation and semantics of enterprise modeling languages, the processes involved in creating and managing models, tool support, as well as quality of modeling.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Enterprise modeling methods, languages, and tools
* Enterprise model management and reuse
* The process of modeling and guidelines for modeling
* Collaborative enterprise modeling
* Competencies of modelers and modeling teams

Enterprise Architecture and Engineering
3. Enterprise Architecture
In contrast to partial architectures such as IT architecture or software architecture, enterprise architecture focuses on the overall enterprise. Enterprise architecture explicitly incorporates business-related concepts and artifacts in addition to traditional IS/IT artifacts. By embracing an enterprise-wide perspective enterprise architecture provides a means for organizations to coordinate their adaptations to increasingly fast changing market conditions which impact the entire enterprise, from business processes to IT support.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* EA as a means for strategy elaboration and execution
* EA modeling languages, tools, viewpoints and frameworks
* EA management and governance
* EA reference models and simplified / agile methods
* EA Case studies

4. Enterprise Engineering
The enterprise engineering domain aims to apply an engineering based approach to the design of enterprises and their transformation. As such, this domain is concerned with the development of new, appropriate theories, models, methods and other artifacts for the analysis, design, implementation, and governance of enterprises by combining (relevant parts of) management and organization science, information systems science, and computer science.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Enterprise Ontology
* Enterprise Implementation Design
* Business Rules Management
* Modeling (cross-enterprise) business processes
* Reference models

C. Business Transformation and Innovation
5. Enterprise & Business Transformation
Modern day enterprises are in a constant state of flux. New technologies, new markets, globalization, mergers, acquisitions, cost reduction and operational performance improvements are among the "usual suspects" that require enterprises to transform themselves. These transformations involve both the development of new business models, as well as transformations of the enterprise as a whole.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Methodologies and approaches for enterprise & business transformation
* Modeling languages and analysis techniques needed for enterprise & business transformation
* Methodologies and approaches to set up/mature an organization's transformation capability
* Competencies needed to conduct/drive enterprise & business transformations
* Case studies in enterprise & business transformation
* Industry-specific trends in the evolution of business organizations

6. Business (Model) & Service Innovation
We live in a service dominant economy. Being successful in business no longer depends on having the ?best? product, but increasingly depends on delivering high quality services at affordable costs. This forces enterprises to continuously develop/innovate their services and tune/innovate their business models. The world evolution toward services-based clusters also brings new trends that blur the traditional boundaries across conventional industries, thus generating new opportunities of economies of scale.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Concepts and methods in understanding and anticipating customer needs, involving customers in business and service innovation processes, earning models, resources, stakeholders, service recovery approaches, testing and prototyping services, integration with existing service portfolios, service interaction, etc.
* Software and technology in business and service innovation
* Managing the service innovation process, innovative culture and leadership, enhancement of creativity
* Cases of innovation in different service industries: industrial service, creative industries, travel and leisure, public service, IT-services, banking etc.
* Education in business and service innovation and design

D. Business Informatics Technology
7. Empowering & Enabling Technologies
Enabling technologies in Business Informatics integrate management practices with Informatics and Information Technologies. Business Informatics tasks may be performed, supported or monitored by automated or semi-automated technologies. Running environments range from thin mobile clients to large-scale distributed platforms, and newer areas such as analytics services, big data. Accordingly, we seek papers for original and innovative empowering and enabling technologies in domains related to Business Informatics.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Business (Big) Data and Knowledge Integration, Management and Mining
* Information Retrieval and Information Filtering
* Recommender Systems
* Tools for ensuring and monitoring Security, Privacy, Trust and Risk in Business Informatics tasks
* Support of users and communities in Business environments, specialized Human Computer Interaction
* Technology support for Electronic Business and Electronic Commerce

8. Social & Frontier Technologies
New technologies such as M2M and social networks present a new frontier for business. This presents a reverse paradigm from the traditional model of using IT support for existing business to building business for the new technology. BI needs a new perspective on how to identify business opportunity, business model, business support around some new technologies, e.g. data broker for smart meters, context-driven business, etc. for next generation cloud-based companies like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* Social networks
* Social computing
* Mobile computing
* Machine-to-Machine communications (M2M)
* Smarter planet
* Digital Economics and Market Theory

E. Digital Economics and Market Theory
9. Economic Foundations
Economic problems faced by today?s society demand interdisciplinary knowledge from economics, management and informatics. Thus, economic modeling of IT-based solutions for analytically and statistically formulated economic problems is subject to this track. Accordingly, we aim for economic theories and computational methods ? e.g. based on game theory, auction theory, operations research, etc. ? to solve managerial decisions and planning problems.
Specific (not limitative) topics:
* e-Market place design
* Pricing, profits and efficiency
* Technology adoption and diffusion
* Impact of IT on organizations and markets
* Productivity and business value of IT
* Negotiations and contracting
