3rd International Workshop On Enterprise Integration, Interoperability and Networking (EI2N '08)

  • Monterrey, Mexico, Nov 12 - 13, 2008
  • Sponsored by IFAC TC 5.3 "Enterprise Integration and Networking? and IFIP TC 5 WG5.12 ?Architectures for Enterprise Integration?
  • http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf

SCOPE

It is a fact that enterprises need to collaborate in order to prosper in the current extreme dynamic and heterogeneous business environment. Enterprise integration, interoperability and networking are the major disciplines that have studied how to do companies to collaborate and communicate in the most effective way. These disciplines are well-established and are supported by international conferences, initiatives, groups, task forces and European projects where different domains of knowledge have been considered from different points of views and a variety of objectives (e.g., technological or managerial). Enterprise Integration involves breaking down organizational barriers to improve synergy within the enterprise so that business goals are achieved in a more productive and efficient way. Enterprise Modelling, Architecture, and Ontology are the pillars supporting the achievement of Enterprise Integration and Interoperability. The workshop is organised as a Venue of Experts part of the OTM?2008 Federated Conferences (http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf). It aims at identifying issues in Applications of Interoperability in Enterprise Integration and Networking that will be developed in future research projects.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

The main goal of this workshop is to provide a forum for practitioners and researchers interested in enterprise integration, interoperability and networking to meet, and exchange research and implementation ideas and share the most exciting results. It offers for practitioners and researchers with diverse backgrounds, an opportunity to present research papers, share experiences, and participate in open discussions. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, theoretical and/or empirical exploration of enterprise integration models, tools and theories, as well as case studies and practices related to:

  • Enterprise Integration Modelling, Approaches, and Methodologies
  • Best Enterprise Interoperability Design Principles
  • Architectures for Integration of Enterprise Information Systems
  • Ontology for Enterprise Integration of Applications
  • Case Studies in Enterprise Integration
  • Interoperability in the context of collaborative networked organisations
  • Enterprise reference models and their verification, validation, and accreditation
  • Reference models for interoperability
  • Enterprise models repository
  • Data and models mining and warehousing
  • Networked Business Models and Agility
  • Interoperability in the era of Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Enterprise Integration / Enterprise Architecture and Service Oriented Architecture

IMPORTANT DATES

  • Abstract Submission Deadline June 15, 2008
  • Paper Submission Deadline June 30, 2008
  • Acceptance Notification August 15, 2008
  • Camera Ready Due August 25, 2008
  • Registration Due August 25, 2008

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Each submitted paper will be evaluated by at least three members of the Workshop Program Committee, based on its originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and may be of two types: Full Papers or Short Papers, both of which may discuss industrial experience or academic research. Full Papers should not exceed 5,000 words (excluding references and appendices), and should not exceed 10 pages in the final camera-ready format. Short papers should not exceed 5 pages in the final camera-ready format. Full papers are normally allocated 45 minutes for presentation. Short papers are normally allocated at most 30 minutes for presentation. Only electronic submissions in Adobe PDF format are acceptable. The final workshop proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html Additionally, extended versions of the best papers from the Workshop will be considered for a submission in a special issue of an International Journal. Failure to commit to presentation at the workshop automatically excludes a paper from the Conference Proceedings.

The paper submission site will be announced at later date.

WORKSHOP FORMAT ORGANISATION

The Workshop Program will be scheduled for two days duration and it will be organised with oral presentations of papers followed by two rounds ?group workshop caf? on subjects related to the presented papers. At the end of the Workshop, a plenary panel will summarize the results, and a report will be prepared.
