Electronic e-Business Standards (SEB05)

in conjuction with INFORMATIK 2005
Bonn, Germany (19.09.05-22.09.05)



Within the last years e-Business has increasingly gained importance. With a progressive development and a strong growth, new challenges have been established when looking at the cooperation of different e-Business participants.
Especially the interoperability of systems became an important factor in this area since it is often necessary to exchange information between heterogeneous information systems. Well known standards such as ebXML can help by simplifying this process. They promise a flexible coupling of heterogeneous systems. Moreover, a high research need consists in the integration of legacy systems into new structures, since a lot of efforts and money has been invested for their creation. Furthermore, the combination of different standards and their interoperability is an interesting research domain.
It is important for enterprises to be able to quickly identify future standards and to estimate available developments and their relevance as soon as possible. This will make it easier to perform a fast reaction to future e-Business standards.


Ambition of this workshop is to get an overview of current research approaches as well as a broad discussion in certain areas of this topic. Current and future standards as well as their possibilities shall be observed. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

* Domains and applications of e-Business Standards

* Business process and collaboration standards (ebXML, RosettaNet, BizTalk, etc.)

* Single Electronic Market standards (SEM)

* Identification standards (EAN, UPC)

* e-Procurement standards

* Registry standards of electronic markets (UDDI, ebXML RR)

* Electronic product standards (UNSPSC, BMEcat)

* Transaction standards (OpenTRANS, etc.)

* Integration of legacy systems (Enterprise Application Integration)

* Interoperability of heterogeneous e-Business Standards

* Integration and usage of standards in software systems

* Combination of different standards

* Standardization process

Target Group

This workshop addresses researchers, developers and users within the domain of e-Business standards and their standardization process. Focus of this workshop is the integration of standards into existing system topologies as well as the interoperability of different standards.
