in enterprise applications can be defined as the ability of a system or a
product to work with other systems or products without special effort from
the customer or user. The possibility to interact and exchange information
with internal and external collaborators is a key issue in the enterprise
sector. It is fundamental in order to produce goods and services quickly,
at lower cost, while maintaining higher levels of quality and customisation.
Interoperability is considered achieved if the interaction can, at least,
take place at the three levels: data, applications and business enterprise
through the architecture of the enterprise model and taking into account
the semantics. It is not only a problem of software and IT technologies. It
implies support of communication and transactions between different organisations
that must be based on shared business references.
The INTEROP-ESA conference aims at bringing together researchers, users and practitioners dealing with different issues of Interoperability of Enterprise Applications and Software. The conference will focus on interoperability related research areas ranging like Enterprise Modeling to define interoperability requirements, Architecture and Platforms to provide implementation frameworks and Ontologies to define interoperability semantics in the enterprise.
Papers are invited in the areas of interoperability, presenting original work and not previously published from academics and professionals. Topics for the conference include, but are not limited to:
Enterprise and networked enterprises Modeling Methods, Tools and frameworks
Methods, Models, and Tools for intra and inter-organizations interoperability
Interoperable Inter-enterprise Workflow Systems
Knowledge Management, Metadata and ontologies for interoperability solutions
Requirements Engineering for Interoperable Enterprise ontologies
Design principles and patterns for interoperability
Good practices and solutions for interoperability development
Standards for enterprise integration and interoperability
Theory and practice of modeling languages
Management of Distributed Enterprise Models
Synchronisation and Interoperability of Distributed Enterprise Models
Support for Co-operative Work
Enterprise Applications Analysis and semantic elicitation
Architectures and platforms for interoperability
Ubiquity, Mobility, Open Architectures and large scale interoperability
Model Driven Architectures
Experiments and case studies of systems’ interoperability
Interoperability of autonomous systems
Service oriented Architectures
Interoperability of Digital Rights Management Systems
Submissions must be no longer than 12 pages in length. Formatting instructions can be found in the conference paper template document.
Please identify the author responsible for correspondence, including name, address, telephone and fax numbers, and e-mail address.
The conference proceedings will be published after the conference (and will be send by post to the registered participants). Papers will be included in the proceedings only if they are presented by one of the authors at the INTEROP-ESA 2005 conference.
Selected papers will be published in special issues of International Scientific Journals
Authors are requested to submit their manuscripts electronically in PDF format using the tool available at the conference site : http://interop-esa05.unige.ch.
For more information please visit our web site http://interop-esa05.unige.ch/ or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The INTEROP-ESA'2005 conference also encourages the submission of invited sessions with sets of six invited papers on well-defined subjects of current interest belonging to the scope of the conference.
An invited session will be accepted only if the session and its 6 papers are accepted. Accepted papers of a non-accepted invited session will be transferred into regular sessions.
Organizers of tutorials and workshops, which will be organized in conjunction with the conference as a pre-Congress program, are encouraged to submit their proposals which will be reviewed by the conference IPC.
For all of these proposals, organisers should submit a descriptive abstract to the Workshops, Tutorials and Invited Sessions co-chairs using the on-line forms available at the site. For questions and clarifications you can send an e-mail t the WTIS co-chairs email@example.com.
