Call For Papers

Fourteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (IEEE EDOC 2010)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference"

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society (approval pending) and IEEE
Communications Society (approval pending)
Supported by OMG and The Open Group

25-29 October 2010, Vitória, ES, Brazil




The IEEE EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise computing.
EDOC conferences address the full range of engineering technologies and
methods contributing to intra- and inter-enterprise distributed application
systems. EDOC 2010 will be the fourteenth event in the series of
conferences. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer science
researchers, IT decision makers, IT architects, solution designers and
practitioners to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and
solutions from the perspectives of academia, industry and government.

Enterprise computing is based on a wide (and ever growing) range of methods,
models, tools and technologies. The resulting applications also cover a
broad spectrum of vertical domains and industry segments, from electronic
and mobile commerce to real-time business applications for collaborating
enterprises. In recent years, technologies related to business processes
integration, management, execution and monitoring have become some of the
top areas of interest in enterprise computing. Today, the creation,
operation and evolution of enterprise computing systems create challenges
that range from high-level requirements and policy modeling to the
deployment and maintenance of solutions in and across customer businesses.

The IEEE EDOC Conference emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise
applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches
that can address and relate processes, people and technology. The themes of
openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and
objects, provide a useful and unifying conceptual framework.

IEEE EDOC 2010 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as
papers on enterprise computing industry experiences. Expert panel
discussions and keynotes will address hot topics and issues in the domain.

IEEE EDOC 2010 will be realized in Vitória, ES, Brazil. Vitória is one of
the three island capitals of Brazilian states, and is located in the
Southeastern region, the most developed of Brazil. The city lies between the
Atlantic Ocean and the Serra do Mar mountain range and is strategically
located close to the big urban centres of the country and is, on average, an
hour by plane from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.


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

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted a) scientific research
papers, and b) industry experience reports or case studies.
Scientific research papers should describe original results that have not
been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers will be
evaluated for scientific or technical contribution, originality,
appropriateness and significance.
Experience reports should describe new insights gained from case studies or
the application of enterprise computing technology in practice, contribute
important feedback about the state of practice and how current research is
applied, and pose challenges for researchers. These papers will be evaluated
based on their appropriateness, significance and clarity.

All papers should be limited to 10 pages in length. All submissions must
comply with the IEEE Computer Society conference proceedings format
guidelines ( (please
use the latest template as there have been updates recently). Submissions
must be in English.
Submissions should be made electronically in PDF format via the electronic
submission system of the EDOC Conference Management system (hosted at 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 will be accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer
Society Digital Library. The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from
distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the
paper is not presented at the conference.


The authors of a set of selected papers will be invited to prepare a
substantially revised and extended version of their papers for publication
in a special journal issue (details will be announced later). In previous
years, selected papers from EDOC have been published in Springer's
Information Systems Frontiers (ISF), Enterprise Information Systems (EIS),
and International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems (IJCIS).
Additionally, selected papers will be considered for publication of an
extended version in a volume of Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science
(LNCS) under the title "Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture".


We are inviting proposals for workshops on innovative research and
industry-related topics. Workshops provide organizers and participants an
opportunity to discuss current topics in enterprise computing in a small and
interactive atmosphere. Proposals should include the workshop title, the
names and a brief (200-word) biography for each organizer and a summary of
the workshop contents (approximately 1-2 pages, i.e. 500-1000 words).
