About the Conference

IEEE EDOC 2013 is the seventeenth conference in a series that provides the key forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of enterprise computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of models, methodologies, and engineering technologies contributing to intra- and inter-enterprise application systems. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer scientists, IT decision makers, enterprise architects, solution designers, and practitioners to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions from the perspectives of academia, industry, and government. The IEEE EDOC conference series emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches that address and relate business processes, people and technology. EDOC’13 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as experience papers on enterprise computing from industry. The main theme of EDOC’13 is the *enterprise of the future in a world of cloud, social and big data. Distributed and cloud computing are fundamental pillars of this theme enabling collaborations based on service offerings, delivery and consumption within an enterprise and across enterprise borders. Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address current topics and issues in the domain.


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:

  • Enterprise Architecture and Enterprise Application Architecture
  • Model-Based Approaches
  • Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) and Enterprise Service Architectures (ESA)
  • Governance in Service-Oriented Architectures
  • Business Process Management (BPM)
  • Business Analytics
  • Business Rules
  • Information Integration and Interoperability
  • Networked Enterprise Solutions
  • Enterprise Applications Deployment and Governance
  • Emerging Trends in Distributed Enterprise Applications

Submission Guidelines

Two types of paper submissions are solicited: a) scientific research papers and b) industry experience reports or case studies. Scientific research papers should describe original results not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. These papers will be evaluated based on their scientific and technical contribution, originality, and relevance. In turn, industry experience reports should provide new insights gained in case studies or when applying enterprise computing technology in practice; industry experience reports shall further provide important feedback about the state of practice and pose challenges for researchers. These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance, and clarity.Submissions should be full papers with 8-10 pages.
All submissions must be made in PDF format and comply with the IEEE Computer Society
Conference Proceedings Format Guidelines (

They should be made via the electronic submission system of the EDOC Conference Management system: 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 be made accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library.
