The Organizational & Enterprise Engineering Track
Enterprise engineering is an emerging discipline that aims at researching concepts, methods and technologies in order to understand, model, develop, analyze and design various aspects of changing enterprises. As a whole, it focuses on understanding the relationships and dependencies between business strategy, organizational structure, business processes and supporting information systems in the overall context of enterprise architecture. It encompasses multi-disciplinary topics, ranging from modeling business processes, developing enterprise ontologies and architectures, representing information system services to identifying best practices and patterns.
The importance of this multi-disciplinary area has been increasing with the widespread usage of service-oriented architectures and networked information systems and technologies, which enable business processes to be executed and orchestrated within and across organizational boundaries. These technologies allow to integrate enterprise applications and to automate business processes, thereby allowing the enterprise to adapt to a changing environment and to realize a real return on investment due to a reduced integration and development cost. This track provides an opportunity for researchers, academics and practitioners involved with this area, to exchange their ideas and discuss open issues and future directions.Topics include (but are not limited to):
- Enterprise modeling and design
- Engineering of collaboration and interoperability
- Enterprise ontologies
- Enterprise architecture
- Enterprise information systems
- Emerging technologies for enterprise engineering

The conference calls
for original, unpublished research papers in the ares above defined.
Research papers are limited to 12 pages in length. The language of the
conference and all submissions is English.
Guidelines and templates are available at ECIS 2007 website (http://www.ecis2007.ch/paper_submission.php). The submissions must be sent using the ECIS 2007 electronic submission system (http://www.softconf.com/start/ecis2007/submit.html)
Submissions to ECIS 2007 may not have (already) been published previously in a journal or conference proceedings, nor presented at another conference. Moreover, they may not be currently under consideration for publication or presentation elsewhere. Any submission that exceeds the length requirements, or does not adhere to the required format, or is delivered after the specified date, will be rejected without review.
All paper submissions will be evaluated in a double-blind peer review process. Each conference track will be chaired by colleagues with research expertise in the respected area. The track chairs will supervise the review process, involving selected reviewers from the IS research community. Acceptance and rejection decisions are finalized by the programme committee.
Evaluation criteria will be those typically used by major journals and first-class conferences, e.g. relevance of the topic and findings, quality (rigour) of the research process and quality of the writing. The results of the review process will be communicated to the author(s) by the specified date. The author(s) will be responsible for making the revisions recommended by the reviewers, and for submitting the final version of their paper by the appropriate deadline.
If you have any questions about the the paper
submission process, please contact
ecis2007-RMDPTyK1aQ7hvxM+mQhndA@public.gmane.org Any questions concerning the Organizational &
Enterprise Engineering track should be sent to ecis-oee-bqZEUaylcM5mbKjIMt4firstname.lastname@example.org
Having started in the UK in 1993, the European Conference on Information Systems is set to complete its first round tour of European venues in Switzerland in 2007. Within 15 years, ECIS as well as the IS discipline as a whole has matured. The number of IS researchers and programmes has grown, the IS discipline has established itself in between computer science and business / economics, and information systems are now acknowledged as important innovation drivers and sources of growth for companies, government and society. On the other hand, we have to face discontinuities (such as the e-hype and the subsequent downturn) and large-scale transformations (such as global competition in IT service provision). Furthermore, the co-existence of fundamentally different research styles is challenging the IS discipline. The ECIS 2007 motto reflects this challenge: We need to focus on both rigour and relevance. While being rigorous, relevance must not be lost. While being relevant, sufficient rigour must be applied to create reliable, transparent results.
Most of all, we invite colleagues from all across Europe and beyond to present new findings, discuss current issues and strengthen personal networks.
