CALL FOR PAPERS (due to the delay of notifications for the main conference,
the submission deadline has been extended until 17 July)

The 3rd International Workshop on
(VORTE 2007)

In conjunction with the 11th IEEE International
EDOC Conference (EDOC 2007)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference"

15-19 October 2007, Annapolis, Maryland, USA

Selected papers accepted to the workshop to be invited for a
special issue in Elsevier’s ISI-indexed Information Systems journal


Vocabularies, ontologies, and business rules are key components of a
model-driven approach to enterprise computing in a networked economy.
VORTE 2007 is the third workshop associated with an EDOC conference that
intends to bring together researchers and practitioners in areas such as
philosophical ontology, enterprise modelling, information systems,
Semantic Web, Model-Driven Architecture (MDA), business rules, and
business processes. The goal of the workshop is to discuss the role that
foundational and domain ontologies play in the conceptual development
and implementation of next generation tools for enterprise computing.
Since enterprise vocabularies and ontologies, as well as business rules
do not exist in isolation but serve to support business processes, THIS


The workshop contributions will be organized along four major thematic
areas, under which the following topics of interest will be included,
but not limited to:

* Conceptual Modelling
- Business Vocabularies, Terminologies, and Taxonomies
- Ontological Approaches to Content and Knowledge Management
- Enterprise Information Integration and Interoperability
- Service Taxonomies and Service Registries (for example, UDDI-related
- Ontological Foundations for Conceptual Modelling
- Languages for Conceptual Modelling (for example, OWL and UML)
- Agent-Oriented Conceptual Modelling
* Business Rules and Business Process Semantics
- Semantic Web Services
- Service Ontologies (for example, research related to OWL-S)
- Business Rule Languages and Components
- Rule-based Approaches to Web Service Policies and Choreographies
- Ontologies for Business Process Management
- Agent-based Business Rule and Process Management
- Business Process Modelling and Execution Languages (for example, BPMN
and BPML)
* Ontologies for Enterprise Computing
- Foundational Ontologies and Enterprise Computing
- Ontological Evaluation of Enterprise Systems
- Ontologies for Interoperability of Enterprise Systems
- Ontology-based Enterprise Architectures
- Ontology-based Software Engineering for Enterprises
- Enterprise Components’ Modelling
* Model-Driven Architecture (MDA) approaches to Enterprise Computing
- Modelling and Architecture Frameworks
- Domain Engineering
- Domain-specific Business Information and System Engineering
- Transformation between MDA layers


All submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. Submissions should be 6 to 8 pages long and MUST use
the two-column format of IEEE conference proceedings, which is
referenced on the workshop's web site, and include the authors’ name,
affiliation, and contact details. Papers must be submitted in the PDF
format using EasyChair at Authors
will be notified about the decision by the program committee by the 11th
of August 2007. At least one author of each accepted paper must
participate in the workshop. The papers accepted for the EDOC 2007
Workshops will be published after the workshop with its own ISBN in the
IEEE Digital Library (pending approval by IEEE), which is accessible by
IEEE Xplore.


A selection of the best papers accepted to the workshop and presented
there will be invited to the special issue of Elsevier ISI-indexed
Information Systems journal (subject to the second round of
