The IEEE EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise computing.
EDOC conferences address the full range of engineering technologies and methods contributing to
enterprise distributed application systems.
EDOC 2008 will be the twelfth event in the series of conferences,
which since 1997 has brought together leading computer science researchers,
IT decision makers, IT architects, solution designers and practitioners from academia,
industry and government to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions.
Enterprise computing is based on a wide (and ever growing) range of methods, models,
tools and technologies. The resulting applications also cover a broad spectrum of vertical domains and industry segments,
from electronic and mobile commerce to real-time business applications for collaborating enterprises.
In recent years, technologies related to business processes integration, management,
execution and monitoring have become one of the top areas of interest in enterprise computing.
Today, the creation, operation and evolution of enterprise computing systems comprises challenges
that range from high-level requirements and policy modeling to the deployment and maintenance of
solutions in and across customer businesses.
The IEEE EDOC Conference emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise applications engineering and management,
fostering integrated approaches that can address and relate processes, people and technology.
The themes of openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and objects,
provide a useful and unifying conceptual framework.
The 2008 EDOC conference will welcome high quality scientific submissions as well as papers
on enterprise computing industry experiences. Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address
hot topics and issues in the domain. The TEAA conference (Trends in Enterprise Application Architecture)
will become part of EDOC in 2008 and further enrich the scientific program and publication scope of the conference.
