The field of enterprise architecture attracted the attention of the
research community for the first time when Zachman introduced the
Framework for Information Systems Architecture in 1987. However, it was
not until 1996 that enterprise architecture emerged as an active field of
business activity and research.

Enterprise architecture (EA) is important because organizations need to
adapt increasingly fast to changing customer requirements and business
goals. This need influences the entire chain of activities of an
enterprise, from business processes to IT support. To keep the
enterprise architecture coherent and aligned with business goals,
the relations between the different architectures must be clearly defined
and consistent.

In previous years the emergence of service oriented design paradigms
(e.g. Service Oriented Architecture, SOA) contributed to the relevance of
enterprise architectures. The need to design services along business
processes forced companies to pay more attention to business
architectures. The growing complexity of existing application landscapes
lead to increased attention to application architectures at the same

To better align business and IS architectures a number of major companies
started to establish EA efforts after introducing service oriented
architectures. Until recently, practitioners, consulting firms and tool
vendors have been leading in the development of the EA discipline.

Research on enterprise architecture has been taking place in relatively
isolated communities. The main objective of this workshop is to bring
these different communities of EA researchers together and to identify
future directions for EA research with special focus on service oriented
paradigms. An important question in that respect is what EA researchers
should do, as opposed to EA practitioners.

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

- Case studies
- Combining BPM and EA
- Drivers and obstacles of EA dissemination
(e.g. agility, flexibility, strategic planning, usage resistance)
- EA and e-government
- EA and organizational theory
- EA and system development
- EA business cases
- EA communication and marketing
- EA for small and medium-sized companies
- EA governance and integration into corporate/IT governance
- EA in university and executive education
- EA reference models, meta models and frameworks
- EA usage in corporate strategic planning
- EA usage potentials for the networked enterprise
- Enterprise modelling, EA and MDA
- Event-driven architecture
- Evolution of an EA
- Incorporation of knowledge management and software engineering in EA
- Integrating service oriented and legacy architectures
- Managing complexity in EA
- Maturity models for EA artifacts and processes
- Measurement, metrics, analysis, and evaluation of EA artifacts
and processes
- Methodologies for EA research
- Processes and patterns for EA development, mastering, communication
and enforcement
- Service design on application and business levels
- Service orientation as EA design paradigm
- Service oriented architecture (SOA) and EA
- The relation between natural and EA modelling languages
(understandability of EA models)
- Tool support for EA
- Viewpoints in EA


Papers should describe innovative and significant original research
relevant to TEAR as described above. Papers submitted for consideration
must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or
submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration. All
papers must be prepared in accordance with the Springer/LNCS camera-ready
format and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the submission

Research papers are not to exceed 15 pages, including all references and
figures. All submissions should include title, authors, and full contact
information. Detailed instructions for authors are available on the LNCS


Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, importance of
contribution, soundness, quality of presentation, and appropriate
comparison to related work. The program committee as a whole will make
final decisions about which submissions to accept for presentation at the
conference. All accepted papers will appear in the ICSOC 2008 workshop
proceedings, published by Springer Verlag as a part of its Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) series. At least one author of accepted papers
is expected to present the results at the TEAR 2008 workshop.
