Meeting Description:

Eleventh International IEEE EDOC Conference
(EDOC 2007) "The Enterprise Computing Conference"


15-19 October 2007, Annapolis, MD USA

Sponsored by 
IEEE Computer Society (pending),

The EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of engineering technologies and methods contributing to enterprise distributed application systems. EDOC 2007 will be the eleventh event in the series of conferences, which since 1997 has brought together leading computer science researchers, IT decision makers, IT architects, solution designers and practitioners from academia, industry and government to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions. Today the creation, operation and evolution of enterprise computing systems comprises challenges that range from high-level requirements and policy modeling to the deployment and maintenance of solutions in and across customer businesses. 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 one of the top areas of interest in enterprise computing.

The EDOC Conference emphasizes the integration and management of enterprise computing research and development results, fostering an enterprise and social organizational engineering approach that can address and relate business, application, middleware and technical levels. The themes of openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and objects, provide a useful and unifying conceptual thread for this purpose. 


The EDOC program committee seeks high-quality papers 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:

* State of the art in distributed enterprise applications
- Middleware standards and architectures, such as CORBA, J2EE and .NET
- Application server solution deployment and maintenance
- Industry specific solutions, e.g. for aerospace, automotive, finance, logistics, medicine and telecommunications
- Innovative applications
* Integration of multimedia technologies
* Integration of embedded and mobile interactions
* Mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs)
* Enterprise computing metrics and environment
- Performance prediction and measurement
- Quality of service (QoS) and cost of service (CoS)
- Total cost of ownership (TCO) for enterprise computing implementations
- Evolution and management of enterprise computing systems
- Human and social organizational factors in enterprise computing
* SW engineering approaches to distributed enterprise applications
- Model driven architecture (MDA) and UML based approaches
- Modeling based on domain specific languages (DSL)
- Component based approaches compliant with the OMG enterprise collaboration architecture (ECA)
- Service oriented architectures (SOA) and enterprise service architectures (ESA)
- Collaborative development and cooperative engineering issues
- Organization and principles of software factories
* Web services
- IT aspects of inter-enterprise collaboration and virtual enterprises
- Evolution of web services specifications (e.g., WS-Adressing)
- Service policies and contract definitions and enforcement
- Service registries -
- Universal description, discovery and integration (UDDI) and its extensions
- Semantic service annotations and descriptions

Submission guidelines
Two types of paper submissions will be accepted - research papers and experience reports or case studies.

Research papers should describe original research 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. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages in the IEEE format. Experience reports should describe new insights gained from case studies or the application of enterprise computing technology in practice. These papers will be evaluated on their appropriateness, significance and clarity of expression.

Submissions should contain at least 2,000 words and must not exceed 5,000 words.

The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press and accessible in the IEEE Xplore.

All papers will be refereed by at least 3 members of the international program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of experience reports. All submissions must be in English. Submissions should be made electronically in PDF (preferred) or PostScript format via the electronic submission system via the EDOC Conference Management system.

Journals associated with EDOC 2007
The selected best research papers will be considered for special issues in top notch journals. Further details will be announced soon.

A post-conference article is expected to be published on IEEE IT Professional. The article will cover the important topics and issues discussed in the conference. Please visit the IEEE IT Professional Web site for further information.
