Hi --

Unfortunately I cannot attend the workshop, but you and your colleagues may be interested in the following papers and online Wiki-like system for executable English.

As you know, English text (like this sentence) is normally something for a person to read, but it cannot be used as a program that you can run on a computer.

On the other hand, executable English is something that a person can read, and that you can also run on a computer.

As befits a Wiki, shared use of the system is free.  Just point a browser to www.reengineeringllc.com .

Since the executable knowledge is in English, Google indexes and retrieves it, acting  as a kind of registry. 

Apologies if you have seen this before, and thanks for comments.

2nd Call for Papers: 4th International Workshop on Data Engineering
Issues in E-Commerce and Services (DEECS 2009)

Computing (CEC 2009)
July 20-23, 2009, Vienna, Austria

Workshop Theme
As part of their e-business activities, enterprises create, share,
recombine, and process an ever increasing amount of data and documents
that range from simple transactional data to complex business process
definitions. In many respective processes, multiple spheres overlap,
e.g., (1) inter- with intra-organizational data sources in collaborative
processes, (2) master data with transactional data, (3) regular data
with behavioral aspects of processes, or (4) facts with normative
assertions. Since business entities are members of multiple value chains,
same as data sources are often used in multiple contexts and processes,
there are often conflicting requirements on the representation of such
data. At the same time, enterprise computing infrastructures are
currently transforming into service-oriented systems; this change has
severe consequences as well as offers opportunities for the data
management processes.

All this in combination makes data engineering in e-commerce and service-
oriented computing a very challenging task, already at the level of a
single company but even more in value chains. Also, respective modeling
choices may have long-lasting and far reaching impact, and affect (1)
operational efficiency, (2) business process agility, (3) the range of
analytical tasks for decision support, and (4) strategic options.
Eventually, those choices determine the current and future degree of
automation in content and process integration.

While e-business standards in general help, standardization alone does not
solve the problem. This is because yielding a consensual representation
takes time, consumes resources, and constrains an entity’s ability to
capture individual details. Moreover, the cost of implementing and
enforcing the standards is sometimes prohibitive for small businesses.
Proprietary representations, on the other hand, hamper interoperability,
and complicate B2B integration. In service-oriented architectures (SOAs),
this complexity is further increased by the behavioral dimension of
e-business interactions, e.g., services choreography and orchestration.

This workshop aims at providing a venue for discussion and the exchange
of ideas on data and knowledge engineering issues in the dynamic
environment of e-business, enterprise computing, and business services
and transformation. The relation to CEC 2009 is that it addresses a core
problem in enterprise computing. In the format of an interactive workshop,
it focuses the intersection of three main areas: data engineering,
knowledge engineering, and business process management.

In particular, we are inviting full and short papers, posters, and
hands-on demonstrations on the following topics:

- Business data integration
- Business data management
- Business decision support
- Business intelligence
- Business modeling and analysis
- Business process integration
- Business process management
- Business process monitoring
- Business process intelligence
- Case studies and applications
- Corporate knowledge management
- Customer relationship management (CRM)
- Data-intensive decision support systems
- E-commerce content
- E-commerce standards
- Enterprise application integration
- E-procurement and e-sourcing
- Folksonomies and collaborative tagging in business applications
- Logistics data engineering
- Ontologies and use of Semantic Web technology
- Product data management
- Product lifecycle management
- Product specification standardization
- Semantic business process management
- Semantic Web Services
- Sensors and actuators
- Service-oriented architectures (SOAs)
- Service-level agreements and their specification along and across value chains
- Supply chain management
- Ubiquitous / context-aware services
- Web services

Paper Submission and Publication

We are inviting the submission of
- full papers (up to 8 pages),
- position papers (up to 5 pages),
- posters (2-page extended abstracts or final posters), and
- hands-on demonstrations (2-page descriptions of the demo)
describing original research on the listed or related topics.

Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author
Guidelines to prepare your papers using the 8.5'' x 11'', two-column

Submissions must be in the form of PDF documents using our electronic
submission system, which is available at


At least one author is required to attend the workshop and present the
work. Attendance of the workshop requires registration to the main
CEC conference.

Full papers will be published in the regular conference proceedings by
the IEEE Computer Society Press and will be included in the IEEE Digital

Review Process
Each paper will typically be reviewed by three members of the Program
Committee. Reviewers will score submissions according to their
contribution, originality/novelty, technical depth/merit, and quality of
presentation. For short position papers, clarity of exposition and the
degree of innovation will be sufficient, while for full papers, a clear
technical contribution is expected.
