Workshop on “Enterprise Modeling” at CAiSE’2016

Workshop on “Enterprise Modeling” at CAiSE’2016


The upcoming of recent trends such as Enterprise Mobility, Cloud Computing, Internet-of-Things, Cyber-Physical Systems and Factories-of-the-Future present profound challenges for today’s enterprises. This concerns both technological and organizational aspects that need to be taken into account for realizing innovative, user-centric, and sustainable solutions. Enterprise modeling offers a concept to cope with these challenges by using machine processable languages to facilitate the interaction with complex business and technological scenarios, by engaging in knowledge management and by supporting organizational engineering. It thus directly contributes to the design, implementation, use, and evaluation of solutions. Thereby it spans from traditional fields such as business process management and business intelligence to more recent areas such as enterprise architecture and semantic information systems.

In this workshop the discussion shall be fostered both on the foundations and applications in enterprise modeling, as well as on the model-based development and evolution of enterprise- wide IS from a conceptual / business perspective. For the description of innovative and rigorously elaborated research results a wide variety of research methodologies are welcomed including but not limited to the use of mathematical modeling, simulation, case studies, and prototyping methodologies.

Topics of Interest

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Conceptualization of modeling methods and modeling for internet-of-things, cyber-physical systems, and factories of the future
  • Design, implementation, and application of enterprise modeling methods
  • Formal methods for enterprise modeling
  • Enterprise modeling platforms & tools
  • Business and IT requirements for enterprise modeling
  • Enterprise modeling for IT-Governance
  • Enterprise modeling and knowledge management
  • Reference modeling
  •  Advancements in Open Models
  • Collaborative enterprise modeling
  • Modeling in agile development environments
  • Evaluation and quality assurance of artifacts in enterprise modeling
  • Crowdsourcing for enterprise modeling
  • Best practices and use cases


For the workshop we solicit high quality contributions in the form of papers according to the LNBIP format (12 pages), which will be presented in 20 minutes presentations + 10 minutes of discussions.

The proceedings of all the workshops held in conjunction with CAiSE 2016 will be published as a single volume in the Springer LNBIP series.

All papers must be prepared in accordance with the Springer/LNBIP camera-ready format and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the submission website ( All submissions need to be anonymized for peer-review. For each submission at least two peer reviews will be collected from members of the PC. Detailed formatting instructions for authors are available on the Springer website:
