      Enterprises face the challenge of rapidly adapting to dynamic
      business environments. Evolving markets, policies, regulations,
      technologies, and business models are some of the many vectors of
      change along which enterprise systems must constantly align.
      The capability of rapidly adapting systems and processes to an
      ever-changing environment to leverage existing resources has become
      a crucial factor of an organization’s agility. In a recent EDOC
      publication, Dam et al. pointed out the “need of techniques and
      tools that provide more effective automated support for change
      propagation within an Enterprise Architecture model”. This workshop
      focuses on the business process part of an enterprise evolution,
      called evolutionary business processes. It fosters new approaches
      that address specific issues related to flexibility and adaptation
      of business processes such as design of easily adaptable processes,
      dynamic handling of unexpected situations, optimality of adaptations,
      or change management.

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      W2: The 1st International Workshop on Methodologies for
          Robustness Injection into Business Processes (MRI-BP)
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://www.latece.uqam.ca/mri-bp/index.php

      Within the context of business process management, Business Activity
      Monitoring (BAM), Business Operations Management (BOM),
      Business Process Intelligence (BPI), and Complex Event Processing (CEP)
      are increasingly becoming an essential part of organizations' arsenal
      for verifying that their operations are happening within defined
      boundaries, responding to deviations, and keeping up with a dynamic,
      open, and competitive business environment. The objective of this
      workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
      interested in business process robustness, in general, and in
      methodologies for injecting robustness mechanisms and artifacts
      (exception handling activities, service level agreements,
      compensation processes, etc.) into process models, through assistive
      or automated techniques. The workshop seeks contributions that include,
      i) reasoning on process semantics, ii) automated or assisted discovery
      of process attributes (performance, organizational),
      iii) proactive BAM models, and iv) process repair and extension,
      all for the purpose of enhancing the resilience of a process model
      or of the modeling process.

      W3: The 5th Workshop on Service-oriented Enterprise
          Architecture for Enterprise Engineering (SoEA4EE)
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://www.soea4ee.org/

      Scientific Enterprise Engineering (EE) is the application of engineering
      principles to the design of Enterprise Architectures (EA). It allows
      deriving the Enterprise Architecture from the enterprise goals and strategy.
      Enterprise architecture aims (i) to understand the interactions and all
      kind of articulations between business and information technology,
      (ii) to define how to align business components and IT components,
      as well as business strategy and IT strategy, and more particularly
      (iii) to develop and support a common understanding and sharing of
      those purposes of interest. Enterprise architecture is used to map the
      enterprise goal and strategy to the enterprise’s resources (actors,
      assets, IT supports) and to take into account the evolution of this mapping.
      It also provides documentation on the assignment of enterprise resources
      to the enterprise goals and strategy. There are different paradigms for
      creating enterprise architecture. The most important is to encapsulate
      the functionalities of IT resources as services. By this means, it is
      possible to clearly describe the contributions of IT both in terms of
      functionality and quality and to define a service-oriented enterprise
      architecture (SoEA). The goal of the workshop is to develop concepts
      and methods to assist the engineering and the management of service-oriented
      enterprise architectures and the software systems supporting them.

      W4: The Fourth International Workshop on Models and
          Model-driven Methods for Service Engineering (3M4SE)
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      http://www.utwente.nl/ewi/isse/3m4se2013/

      The workshop aims at helping the convergence of research on model-driven
      development and practical application of the model-driven approach in
      the area of enterprise computing and service engineering. The workshop
      addresses questions with respect to the requirements on, concepts for,
      properties of and experience with models and model-driven methods for
      service engineering in the area of enterprise computing. A special focus
      is on the combined application of model-driven and semantic approaches
      in the different phases of the service lifecycle.

      W5: The 8th International Workshop on Vocabularies,
          Ontologies and Rules for the Enterprise and Beyond (VORTE)
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://planet-sl.org/vorte2013/

      The VORTE series of workshops is traditionally devoted to the topics of
      vocabularies, ontologies and rules in the context of enterprise systems.
      This year, the workshop takes a broader view and does not target only
      enterprise systems, but also systems managing data on the Web. In fact,
      there is a need to exploit unstructured data in the enterprise, and on
      the Web in general, as the majority of Web content and enterprise content
      remains unstructured. Thus, the challenge of managing, extracting and
      structuring data is common to both worlds, and solutions in one
      community will benefit the other.

      W6: The 1st International Workshop on Methodical
          Development of Modeling Tools (MeDMoT)
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://www.wi-inf.uni-duisburg-essen.de/MeDMoT2013/

      The workshop Methodical Development of Modeling Tools (MeDMoT'13) focuses
      on procedures and architectural principles related to the creation of
      software for presenting, editing, or analyzing models. Software tools
      for modeling are a prerequisite for scientific and practical applications
      of modeling methods and modeling languages in enterprise computing.
      To test and exemplify new modeling approaches, research prototypes
      of model editors are required, as well as tools for presenting and
      analyzing models. To be able to efficiently develop such modeling tools,
      it is desirable to methodically guide the development of modeling tools,
      and elaborate procedures to align their design with the conceptualization
      of new modeling languages and modeling methods. Submissions may
      document research work on newly created modeling tools, either for
      prototype or production purposes, as well as work on methodology and
      architecture of modeling tool development. This may cover model editor
      software in a narrow sense, as well as any approach for handling,
      transforming or analyzing models in a wider sense.

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      W7: The 8th Trends in Enterprise Architecture
          Research Workshop (TEAR)
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://planet-sl.org/edoc2013/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=284&Itemid=787&lang=en

      The international TEAR workshop series brings together Enterprise
      Architecture (EA) researchers from different research communities
      and provides a forum to present EA research results and to discuss
      future EA research directions. The field of Enterprise
      Architecture (EA) has gained considerable attention over the last
      years. EA addresses the need of organisations to adapt to changing
      customer requirements and business goals. This need influences
      the entire chain of activities of an enterprise, from its business
      processes to its IT support. To keep the enterprise architecture
      coherent and aligned with the business goals, the relations between
      business and IT must be made explicit, and the impact of changes
      must be reflect in the overall architecture. In contrast to
      traditional architecture management approaches such as IT
      architecture, software architecture or IS architecture,
      EA explicitly incorporates "pure" business-related artifacts
      in addition to traditional IS/IT artifacts. For Enterprise
      Architecture the focus is on the overall enterprise and
      concerns its organization, its components, the relationship
      between components and principles governing its design and evolution.

      W8: Workshop “Enterprise 2.0”
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://planet-sl.org/edoc2013/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=288&Itemid=789&lang=en

      Andrew McAfee coined the term "Enterprise 2.0" in 2006 and
      describes it today as “the use of emergent social software platforms
      within companies, or between companies and their partners or customers”.
      The social revolution that profoundly influenced relationships in
      the personal domain also impacts the professional environment.
      The workshop “Enterprise 2.0” aims at exploring how established
      disciplines in the enterprise domain like enterprise architecture (EA),
      services architecture, business processes (BP) and business process
      management (BPM), knowledge management (KM) and others are evolving
      under the influence of social techniques. The workshop invites
      contributions from areas of new social software that enable people
      to connect and collaborate in professional contexts and enable
      social forms of work organization; people-driven processes and
      services; systems and techniques for collaboratively evolving processes;
      case studies or systems for crowd sourcing; social pattern discovery;
      and monitoring, measuring and metrics of social behavior in work
      environments.

      ------------------------------------------------------------
      W9: First International Workshop on
          Adaptive Case Management
      ------------------------------------------------------------

      Web: http://acm2013.blogs.dsv.su.se/

      While practitioners are trying to overcome the restrictions of
      workflow thinking, the research on the topic is somewhat lagging.
      The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
      practitioners to discuss theoretical and practical problems and
      solutions in the area of non-workflow based approaches to BPM
      in general, and ACM (Adaptive Case Management) as a leading
      movement in particular. This workshop is aimed to promote new,
      non-traditional ways of modelling and controlling business processes,
      the ones that suit better the dynamic environment in which
      contemporary enterprises and public organizations function.
