The 16h IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2012) 

"The Enterprise Computing Conference"

Main Theme: When Services in Cloud Meet Enterprises

Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Communications Society (Pending)


September 2012, Beijing, China



About the conference     

The IEEE EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of models, methodologies, and engineering technologies contributing to intra- and inter-enterprise distributed/cloud application systems. EDOC 2012 will be the sixteenth event in the series of conferences. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer science researchers, 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 emphasizes a holistic view of enterprise applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches that can address and relate processes, people and technology. Openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and objects are important themes. IEEE EDOC 2012 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as papers on enterprise computing industry experiences. This year, the main theme will be on the impacts of services and cloud to enterprise architecture. Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address hot 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)

• Service oriented architecture governance

• Business process management (BPM)

• Business analytics

• Business rules

• Information integration and interoperability

• Networked Enterprise Solutions

• Enterprise applications deployment and governance

• State of the art in distributed enterprise applications

• Enterprise Computing Infrastructures

Submission guidelines

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted a) scientific research papers, and b) industry experience reports or case studies. Scientific research papers should describe original 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. Experience reports should describe new insights gained from case studies or the application of enterprise computing technology in practice, contribute important feedback about the state of practice and how current research is applied, and pose challenges for researchers. These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance and clarity. Submissions should be made electronically in PDF format via the electronic submission system of the EDOC Conference Management system (hosted at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=edoc2012, which will be available later). 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 will be accessible through IEEE Xplore and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library. 

Post conference publication

The authors of a set of selected papers will be invited to prepare a substantially revised and extended version of their papers for publication in a special journal issue. In previous years, selected papers from EDOC have been published in Springer's Information Systems Frontiers (ISF), Enterprise Information Systems (EIS), and International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems (IJCIS).
