Call for Submissions - Open INTEROP Workshop 

"Enterprise Modelling and Ontology: Ingredients for Interoperability" 

December 2, 2004 
Vienna, Austria 

This workshop is supported by NoE INTEROP http://www.interop-noe.org 


In conjunction with the 5th International Conference on Practical Aspects of Knowledge Management 
December 2-3, 2004, Vienna, Austria 

Enterprise models and ontology serve as valuable knowledge assets in the management of corporations. Due to the steadily growing need of integration of heterogeneous enterprise systems, interoperability gets a key issue in technical and semantic integration approaches. The workshop focuses on knowledge-oriented technologies, platforms and approaches to enable interoperability in the domains of enterprise management and enterprise systems. It solicits input from researchers, practitioners and technology providers with experiences related to technical and semantic interoperability. 

Topics of Interest (in the context of interoperability) include, but are not limited to: 
* Model-driven approaches for interoperability 
* Modelling of non-functional aspects 
* Application of ontology in enterprise systems 
* Semantics in enterprise modelling 
* Ontology-based platforms 
* Architectures using models and/or ontology 
* Runtime aspects of model execution 
* Managing semantics in inter-organizational processes 
* Integration of EAI, enterprise modelling and ontology 
* Measuring quality and quantity in interoperability problems 
* Experience reports on real life projects 
* Future perspectives in industry 

Submissions and Participation: 
To enable lively and productive discussions, attendance will be limited to about 25 participants. To participate in the workshop, acceptance of a submitted position statement is required and at most of two authors per accepted submission can participate.
