Call for papers
4th Enterprise Engineering Working Conference – May 5-8 2014 – Funchal
Proceedings published in Springer Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP).
Please distribute this Call for Papers among your colleagues, and/or e-mail lists you belong to, that may be possibly interested in this conference.
Experience the benefits of a Working Conference, an Industry Track and a Doctoral Consortium, in the Portuguese paradise known as the Pearl of the Atlantic and Europe’s Leading Island Destination of 2013 by World Travel Awards. Come and visit us on a venue with breath taking views, providing inspiration and conditions for an interesting program with significant scientific advancement.
We reserve ample time for each paper’s presentation and productive discussion and we will have panel discussions every day to develop and deepen our scientific insights. The conference will also include: an Industry Track – presenting real world and interesting enterprise engineering case studies and projects; and a Doctoral Consortium – if you are developing or supervising a PhD thesis don’t miss this opportunity of important and experienced feedback for you or your supervised student.
Furthermore, we will have a rich social program with fantastic tours everyday – before dinner – to amazing and famous spots on the island such as: the famous Balcões viewpoint, the Cabo Girão sea cliff (one of the highest in Europe) and the Porto Moniz natural sea water swimming pools. If you come a couple of days earlier, you will be able to attend the Madeira Flower Festival parade – one of the major tourist attractions of Madeira every year.
So don’t miss this conference focusing on the increasingly relevant discipline of enterprise engineering that has emerged from the disciplines of information systems engineering and management and organization sciences.

Modern enterprises face a strong pressure to increase agility and competitiveness, to operate on the global market, and to engage in manifold alliances. However, the vast majority of strategic initiatives in enterprises fail, meaning that enterprises are unable to gain success from their strategy. The key reason for these failures is the lack of coherence and consistency among the various components of an enterprise. At the same time, the need to operate as a unified and integrated whole is becoming increasingly important. Currently, these challenges are dominantly addressed from a functional or managerial perspective, as advocated by the management and organization sciences, and as implemented in MBA programs. Such knowledge is indeed necessary for managing an enterprise, but it is inadequate for bringing about changes in a fully systematic and integrated way. To do that, one needs to take a constructional or engineering perspective.
In addition, both organizations and software applications are complex systems, prone to entropy. This means that in the course of time, the costs of bringing about similar changes increase in a way that is known as combinatorial explosion. Entropy can be reduced and managed effectively through modular design based on atomic elements.
Lastly, the individual persons in an enterprise, in cooperation, are ultimately responsible for the effective and efficient operation of the enterprise. They are also collectively responsible for the evolution of the enterprise, in order to meet new challenges. These responsibilities can only be borne if members have an appropriate knowledge and an effective awareness of the construction of the enterprise given by a sound engineering aproach.
Focus and Goal
The Enterprise Engineering Working Conference 2014 is the fourth working conference in the emerging field of Enterprise Engineering. The goal of the conference is to gather academics and practitioners in order to share innovative research issues and practical experiences, and to facilitate profound discussions about the challenges mentioned above. It is the mission of the discipline of Enterprise Engineering to develop 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. The ambition is to address traditional topics in said disciplines from the Enterprise Engineering Paradigm. The result of the efforts should be theoretically rigorous and practically relevant.
Topics of interest to this working conference include, but are not limited to:
- Business Process Management
- Business Process Modeling and Simulation
- Business Rules
- Business Rules Management
- Collaborative, Participative, and Interactive Modeling
- Component-Based System Development
- Domain Ontologies
- Domain Reference Ontologies
- Enterprise Architecture
- Enterprise Governance
- Enterprise Modeling and Simulation
- Enterprise Ontology
- Information System Architectures
- Information System Ontologies
- Information Systems Design
- Information Systems Development
- Interoperability Testing and Verification
- Modeling (cross-enterprise) Business Processes
- Ontology-based Web Services
- Participatory Systems
- Reference Models for (cross-enterprise) Business Processes
- Service Oriented Architecture
- Service Oriented Design
The 4th Enterprise Engineering Working Conference in 2014 follows the successful preceding conferences in 2013, 2012 and 2011 and the preceding series of workshops (CIAO!’10, CIAO!’09, CIAO!’08, MIOS-CIAO’06, MIOS-INTEROP’05, MIOS’04) held at the DESRIST, CAiSE and OTM Federated conferences.
We are looking for articles on current or recently finished research projects as well as articles from practitioners. Based on our motivating experience of the previous workshops and working conferences, the Enterprise Engineering Working Conference 2014 is planned to be a real working conference, providing ample time for profound discussions following short presentations.
The EEWC proceedings will be published in the Springer LNBIP series: “Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing“.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must conform to Springer’s LNBIP format and should not exceed 15 pages, including all text, figures, references and appendices. Submissions not conforming to the LNBIP format or exceeding 15 pages will be rejected without review. Information about the Springer LNBIP format can be found at Springer LNBIP web page mentioned above. Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract.
For submissions please go to our Easychair conference web page and sign-up or sign-in, submit your abstract and upload your paper taking in account the dates specified below.
Important note: Since the review process is double-blind, please make sure that your names and affiliations are not listed in the paper submitted for review!
