2nd IFIP WG5.8 Workshop on Enterprise Interoperability (IWEI 2009)

This workshop aims at identifying and discussing challenges and solutions with respect to enterprise interoperability, both at the business and the technical level. The workshop promotes the development of a scientific foundation for specifying, analysing and validating interoperability solutions; an architectural framework for addressing interoperability problems from different viewpoints and at different levels of abstraction; a maturity model to evaluate and rank interoperability solutions with respect to distinguished quality criteria; and a working set of practical solutions and tools that can be applied to interoperability problems to date.

SCOPE

One of the trends in the global market is the increasing collaboration among enterprises. Constant changes in inter- and intra-organisational environment will persist in the future. Organisations have to flexibly and continuously react to (imminent) changes in markets and trading partners. Large companies but also SMEs have to cope with internal changes from both a technical (e.g. new information, communication, software and hardware technologies) and an organisational point of view (e.g. merging, re-organisation, virtual organisations, etc.). In this context, the competitiveness of an enterprise depends not only on its internal performance to produce products and services but also on its ability to seamlessly interoperate with other enterprises. External and internal collaborative work needs more interoperable solutions.

This workshop aims at identifying and discussing challenges and solutions with respect to enterprise interoperability, both at the business and the technical level. The workshop promotes the development of a scientific foundation for specifying, analysing and validating interoperability solutions; an architectural framework for addressing interoperability problems from different viewpoints and at different levels of abstraction; a maturity model to evaluate and rank interoperability solutions with respect to distinguished quality criteria; and a working set of practical solutions and tools that can be applied to interoperability problems to date.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

Original submissions, with explicit contributions to Enterprise Interoperability, are invited from both researchers and practitioners in the following (non-exhaustive) list of topics:

  • Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and enterprise interoperability;
    • interoperability through service discovery and composition;
    • orchestration of services;
    • mediation between services;
  • Model Driven Architecture (MDA) and enterprise interoperability;
    • Model Driven Interoperability (MDI);
    • computation-independent interoperability models;
    • platform-independent interoperability models;
    • model-to-model transformations;
    • other reference models and architecture approaches;
  • Open Distributed Processing (ODP) and enterprise interoperability;
  • enterprise architecture and enterprise modelling;
  • middleware and infrastructure approaches to facilitate and enhance interoperability;
  • business-IT alignment for interoperability;
  • reference ontology and mapping mechanisms;
  • self-organisation and adaptation for interoperability;
  • semantic annotations for information interoperability;
  • coordination and negotiation in networks of businesses;
  • cross-organizational business processes;
  • maturity models and quality criteria for evaluating interoperability solutions;
  • modelling, analysis and validation of interoperability;
  • non-functional aspects of interoperability, such as privacy, QoS, and reputation;
  • interoperability requirements, approaches and solutions in specific sectors
  • case studies and experience reports on interoperability solutions.

INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS

The workshop welcomes submissions of full papers (10 to 14 pages long) and position papers (4 to 6 pages) in Springer LNBIP format. A package with formatting instructions and a template for Word and style files for Latex is available at the Springer LNBIP website. Word package can be directly downloaded from here.

Accepted papers will be included in a workshop proceedings published by Springer in the LNBIP Series.

Extended versions of selected papers published in the workshop proceedings will be invited for publication in the EIS Journal.

All submissions will be formally peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers.

At least one author of each accepted paper should participate in the workshop.

Submissions should be uploaded to the IWEI 2009 website: www.iwei.info.
