We welcome proposals for workshops and tutorials for the 13th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM), taking place in Riga, Latvia.

Instructions for Workshop Proposals

We encourage workshop proposals that target innovative applications of enterprise modelling. Specific focus can e.g. be on:

  • Digital Transformation
  • Blockchain Technology
  • Industry 4.0
  • Internet of Things

Workshop proposals are limited to 5 pages. They must include:

  1. The title
  2. An abstract of 150 words
  3. A statement on the purpose and the format (paper-based or discussion-based) of the workshop. List the workshop topics and explain how the focus of the workshop complements the main conference
  4. Organizing workshop chairs including short bios
  5. The number of expected papers and attendees
  6. A preliminary timeline for the workshop. Also mention if you plan to have a keynote (please note that the conference organization will not cover fees, travel expenses, accommodation nor registration cost). Please mention if you require any special requirement regarding infrastructure and room layout.
  7. A list of tentative PC members
  8. Information on previous editions of the workshop if available
  9. Information on advertisement plans for your workshop

Workshop proposals should be submitted via email to ben.roelens@ou.nl and Marite.Kirikova@rtu.lv. Prior contact with us is encouraged. In case of acceptance, organizing workshop chairs are responsible for the paper reviewing process including the distribution of a call for papers, assignment of reviewers, acceptance/rejection decisions, and collecting as well as proof-reading the camera-ready versions. Accepted workshop papers will be published in joint CEUR-WS proceedings. Thus, an acceptance rate of approximately 50% is invoked for all PoEM 2020 workshops. Moreover, all workshops must employ the Springer LNBIP formatting guidelines with paper lengths between 5 and 12 pages (including references and appendices).

Important Dates

  • Workshop proposal submission deadline: May 1, 2020
  • Workshop notification of acceptance: May 22, 2020
  • Camera ready of all papers and summary of the workshop: October 30, 2020

Instructions for Tutorial Proposals

We invite proposals for tutorials that may address one or more of the listed topics below, although authors should not feel limited by them:

  • Capability-driven Enterprise Modelling
  • Business and Value Modelling
  • Enterprise Modelling for Agility and Flexibility
  • Modelling Enterprise Security, Risk & Privacy
  • Enterprise Modelling Analysis, Integrity Checking & Validation
  • Meta-Modelling and Multi-Level Enterprise Modelling
  • Conceptualizations, Notations, and Ontologies

In general, tutorials should not be limited to frontal teaching. Instead, we want to encourage submissions that involve practical application of enterprise modelling methods and tooling by the participants.

Tutorial proposals are limited to 5 pages. They must include:

  1. The title
  2. An abstract of 150 words
  3. A list of learning objectives and how these provide value to the attendees

  5. The expected background of the attendees
  6. A concise description of what materials will be provided to attendees, especially w.r.t tooling
  7. A short bio of the presenters
