Call for Workshops and Tutorials

We welcome proposals for workshops and tutorials for the 11th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling (PoEM), taking place in Vienna, Austria.

Instructions for Workshop Proposals

We encourage workshop proposals that target innovative applications of enterprise modelling in e.g., the digital age, technology-enhanced enterprise modelling in education, and open communities for enterprise modelling. Within these topics, potential specific foci can be on:

  • Digital Transformation
  • Industry 4.0
  • Internet of Things
  • Cyber-physical Systems

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

  1. A 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 differs from and complements the main conference.
  4. Workshop Chairs and Organisers including short bios
  5. A number of expected papers and attendees
  6. A timeline for the workshop.
    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 broadcasting plans for your workshop

Workshop proposals should be submitted via email (, Prior contact with the workshop chairs is encouraged. In case of acceptance, workshop chairs are responsible for the complete paper reviewing process including broadcasting a call for papers, assignment of reviewers, acceptance/rejection decisions, and collecting as well as proof-reading the camera-ready versions.

All accepted workshop papers will be published in a joint CEUR WS proceedings. Thus, an acceptance rate of approximately 50% is invoked for all PoEM 2018 workshops. Moreover, all workshops must employ the Springer LNBIP formatting guidelines with paper lengths between 8 and 12 pages (including all contents, references, and appendices).

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
  • Meta-Modelling and Multi-Level Enterprise Modelling
  • Modelling Enterprise Security, Risk & Privacy
  • Conceptualisations, Notations, and Ontologies
  • Enterprise Modelling for Agility and Flexibility
  • Resource Modelling
  • Enterprise Modelling Analysis, Integrity Checking & Validation

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. A title
  2. An abstract of 150 words maximum
  3. A statement on the value of the tutorial for the attendees
  4. A list of learning objectives, aligned with the value statement
  5. A description of how the activities in the tutorial support the learning objectives and how the proposer will pass his/her messages onto the attendees
  6. The expected background of the attendees
  7. A concise description of what materials will be provided to attendees, especially w.r.t tooling
  8. A timetable that clearly indicates how the interaction with the audience will develop over time
  9. A short bio of the presenters
  10. A history of the tutorial, including whether this tutorial (or any derived version) has been given before. If so, details of where and when, and how it was received, should be included. Proven track record has to be balanced with the innovative aspect of the tutorial
  11. Some sample slides

We appreciate innovative and interactive teaching methods for the audience to gain a good experience of your work.

Proposals must be submitted by email (,
