THE ORGANIZATIONAL ENGINEERING TRACK


For the past nineteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
has been a primary gathering forum computer scientists, computer
engineers, software engineers, and developers from around the world.
ACM SAC is solely sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on
Applied Computing (SIGAPP). The 20th Annual SAC (SAC 2005) will be held
13-17 March, 2005 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, and hosted by the New
Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology.



Organizational engineering aggregates multi-disciplinary concepts,
methods and technology to model, develop and analyze various aspects of
changing organizations. One of its major concerns is to understand the
relationships between business strategy, business processes and the
business support systems in order to create and keep the alignment
between these complementary domains.



The second edition of the Organizational Engineering (OE) track at ACM
SAC will provide a place for theoretical and applied research studies
to be presented and discussed. It also gives an opportunity for
researchers, academics and practitioners interested in organizational
modeling, analysis, methodologies and supporting tools to share and
discuss problems, open issues and ideas.

 



TOPICS


Papers submitted to the OE track should focus on the following topics
with
research results, case studies or description of technological
solutions.



Organizational Models and Methodologies



- Organizational modeling (including business models and business
strategies, business processes, people, support systems).

- Methodologies and conceptual frameworks for analyzing, creating
and maintaining the alignment between organizational concepts.

- Process patterns.

- “As-is” and “to-be” modeling, continuous update and evolution.

- Method engineering.

- Conceptual modeling (including model analysis, verification and
validation, notations and formal models).

- Business networking (intra and inter-organizational
collaborations and contracts).

- Enterprise ontologies.

- Enterprise architecture.


 

Business Support Systems, Tools and Technology



- Frameworks and tools for the deployment, execution, simulation,
assessment and performance analysis of organizational models.

- Service architecture, composition and supporting technologies
(including enterprise application integration, business collaboration).

- Software development, evolution, testing and configuration for
keeping business processes and the support systems aligned.



These definitions have been used:



- Business model: how a firm relates to external stakeholders and
how it transacts with them.

- Business strategy: pattern of actions or decisions (planned or
emerging) that explain how a firm achieves and maintains competitive
advantage.

- Business process: a set of partially ordered activities. Business
processes are supported by support systems and achieve goals derived
from the business strategy.

- Business support system: a set of tools (manual, information
systems and technology) supporting business processes.

- Business structure: the structure of the business in terms of its
people and organizational and functional units.






PAPER SUBMISSION


All submitted papers must represent previously unpublished work.
Accepted papers will be published in the yearly ACM SAC proceedings and
made available through ACM’s Digital Library. The ACM SAC is a refereed
conference. This means each paper will be blindly reviewed by a minimum
of three international referees. Papers will be evaluated according to
their significance, originality, technical content, style and clarity.
Note that  in last year’s edition, the acceptance rate was around 35%.



Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via the online
track management system at href="http://ceo.inesc.pt/sac2005/">http://ceo.inesc.pt/sac2005/
We encourage
authors to use the ACM SIG two-column template while preparing the
paper. To submit the document, authors are required to first register
into the OE site and provide contact details. Please do not hesitate
contacting us via e-mail for any questions or problems.



SUBMISSION GUIDELINES


-The paper should not exceed 4,000 words when submitted. The final
version must fit within five (5) pages using the two-column ACM SIG
template. Authors have the option to add up to three (3) more pages to
the paper at additional expense.

- The paper must be formatted using the two-column ACM SIG format.

- All papers submissions must be made electronically in PDF format
using the system available at http://ceo.inesc.pt/sac2005/

- To facilitate the blind review process, the authors names should
not appear anywhere in the paper and self-references should be made in
the third person.

- Quality papers that are not accepted due to space limitations
will be invited for the poster session. Posters will be included in the
printed proceedings as extended abstracts.

- Any enquiries should be directed to the Track Chairs via e-mai
to href="mailto:sac-oe@ceo.inesc.pt">sac-oe@ceo.inesc.pt.
