CALL FOR PAPERS *************************************************************************** The 3rd International Workshop on VOCABULARIES, ONTOLOGIES AND RULES FOR THE ENTERPRISE (VORTE 2007) http://oxygen.informatik.tu-cottbus.de/VORTE/ In conjunction with the 11th IEEE International EDOC Conference (EDOC 2007) "The Enterprise Computing Conference" http://edoc.mitre.org/ 15-19 October 2007, Annapolis, Maryland, USA Selected papers accepted to the workshop to be invited for a special issue in Elsevier’s ISI-indexed Information Systems journal http://www.elsevier.com/locate/infosys/ *************************************************************************** WORKSHOP OVERVIEW Vocabularies, ontologies, and business rules are key components of a model-driven approach to enterprise computing in a networked economy. VORTE 2007 is the third workshop associated with an EDOC conference that intends to bring together researchers and practitioners in areas such as philosophical ontology, enterprise modelling, information systems, Semantic Web, Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), business rules, and business processes. The goal of the workshop is to discuss the role that foundational and domain ontologies play in the conceptual development and implementation of next generation tools for enterprise computing. Since enterprise vocabularies and ontologies, as well as business rules do not exist in isolation but serve to support business processes, THIS YEAR WE ARE PLANNING TO PUT SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON BUSINESS PROCESS MODELLING AND MANAGEMENT. THEMES AND TOPICS The workshop contributions will be organized along four major thematic areas, under which the following topics of interest will be included, but not limited to: * Conceptual Modelling - Business Vocabularies, Terminologies, and Taxonomies - Ontological Approaches to Content and Knowledge Management - Enterprise Information Integration and Interoperability - Service Taxonomies and Service Registries (for example, UDDI-related research) - Ontological Foundations for Conceptual Modelling - Languages for Conceptual Modelling (for example, OWL and UML) - Agent-Oriented Conceptual Modelling * Business Rules and Business Process Semantics - Semantic Web Services - Service Ontologies (for example, research related to OWL-S) - Business Rule Languages and Components - Rule-based Approaches to Web Service Policies and Choreographies - Ontologies for Business Process Management - Agent-based Business Rule and Process Management - Business Process Modelling and Execution Languages (for example, BPMN and BPML) * Ontologies for Enterprise Computing - Foundational Ontologies and Enterprise Computing - Ontological Evaluation of Enterprise Systems - Ontologies for Interoperability of Enterprise Systems - Ontology-based Enterprise Architectures - Ontology-based Software Engineering for Enterprises - Enterprise Components’ Modelling * Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) approaches to Enterprise Computing - Modelling and Architecture Frameworks - Domain Engineering - Domain-specific Business Information and System Engineering - Transformation between MDA layers SUBMISSION GUIDELINES All submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Submissions should be 6 to 8 pages long and MUST use the two-column format of IEEE conference proceedings, which is referenced on the workshop's web site, and include the authors’ name, affiliation, and contact details. Papers must be submitted in the PDF format using EasyChair at http://www.easychair.org/VORTE2007. Authors will be notified about the decision by the program committee by the 11th of August 2007. At least one author of each accepted paper must participate in the workshop. The papers accepted for the EDOC 2007 Workshops will be published after the workshop with its own ISBN in the IEEE Digital Library (pending approval by IEEE), which is accessible by IEEE Xplore. JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE A selection of the best papers accepted to the workshop and presented there will be invited to the special issue of Elsevier ISI-indexed Information Systems journal (subject to the second round of peer-review). IMPORTANT DATES Paper submission: JULY, 7 2007 Author notifications: August 11, 2007 Camera-ready: August 20, 2007 Workshop: October 15, 2007 WORKSHOP CHAIRS Kuldar Taveter Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering The University of Melbourne Melbourne, Australia Dragan Gasevic School of Computing and Information Systems, Athabasca University, Canada School of Interactive Arts and Technology, Simon Fraser University (SFU), Canada STEERING COMMITTEE Giancarlo Guizzardi, Laboratory for Applied Ontology (LOA), ISTC-CNR, Trento, Italy Gerd Wagner, Brandenburg University of Technology at Cottbus, Germany PROGRAM COMMITTEE Uwe Assmann, Technical University of Dresden, Germany Colin Atkinson, University of Mannheim, Germany Marco Brambilla, Politecnico di Milano, Italy Christoph Bussler, BEA Systems, Inc., USA Robert Colomb, The University of Queensland, Australia Oscar Corcho, University of Manchester, UK Jens Dietrich, Massey University, New Zealand Joerg Evermann, Victoria University Wellington, New Zealand Ricardo Falbo, Federal University of Espirito Santo, Brazil Fred Fonseca, The Pennsylvania State University, USA Fred Freitas, Federal University of Pernambuco, Brazil Aldo Gangemi, Laboratory for Applied Ontology, ISTC-CNR, Italy Adrian Giurca, Brandenburg University of Technology at Cottbus, Germany Hele-Mai Haav, Institute of Cybernetics, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia Terry Halpin, Neumont University, USA Martin Hepp, University of Innsbruck, Austria Heinrich Herre, University of Leipzig, Germany Mustafa Jarrar, STARLAB, Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium Pericles Loucopoulos, Loughborough University, UK Andrey Naumenko, Triune Continuum Enterprise, Switzerland Andreas Opdahl, University of Bergen, Norway Oscar Pastor, Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain Paula Patranjan, Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich, Germany Luís Ferreira Pires, University of Twente, The Netherlands Peter Rittgen, University of Borås, Sweden Christophe Roche, University of Savoie, France Michael Rosemann, Queensland University of Technology, Australia Marcus Spies, University of Munich, Germany York Sure, University of Karlsruhe, Germany Andre Valente, Knowledge Systems Ventures, USA Csaba Veres, The Defence Science and Technology Organisation, Australia CONTACT To contact the workshop organizers, please send an e-mail to vorte2007_(on)_easychair.org Best regards, Kuldar Taveter, PhD Research Fellow Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering The University of Melbourne Australia Homepage: http://www.cs.mu.oz.au/~kuldar/ _______________________________________________ Elsnet-list mailing list Elsnet-list_(on)_elsnet.org http://mailman.elsnet.org/mailman/listinfo/elsnet-list
