ACM SAC 2006:  23-27 April 2006


For the past twenty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
been  a primary gathering forum for computer scientists,  computer
engineers and
software  engineers from around the world. The ACM SAC conference is
solely sponsored  by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied
Computing (SIGAPP). The 21st  Annual SAC (SAC 2006) will be held in
Dijon, France, between 23 and 27 April 2006, and will be hosted by the
Bourgogne University.

Organizational engineering aggregates concepts and methods from
multiple areas of knowledge, including requirements engineering,
software engineering, method engineering, management theory and systems
theory 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 third edition of the Organizational Engineering (OE) track at ACM
SAC will provide a space for theoretical and applied research studies
on organizational engineering to be presented while giving an
opportunity for researchers, academics and industry practitioners
interested in organizational analysis and modeling, methodologies and
tools to share and discuss problems, open issues and trends.


Papers submitted to the OE track should contribute to these topics
with research results, case studies or technological solutions.

Organizational Models and Methodologies

  • Organizational modeling, including business processes, structure,
    support systems, people, strategy, goals and informational entities.

  • Methodologies and frameworks for analyzing, creating and
    maintaining the alignment between strategy, business processes, the
    business structure and the support systems.

  • Process patterns process reference modeling.

  • "As-is" and "to-be" modeling, continuous update and evolution.

  • 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 frameworks.

  • Enterprise integration, business integration and EAI.

Business Support Systems, Tools and Technology

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

  • Service architectures, composition and supporting technologies.

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


All submitted papers must represent previously unpublished work.
Accepted papers will be published in the yearly ACM SAC printed
proceedings and in the ACM's Digital Library.

The ACM SAC is a refereed conference, meaning that each paper will be
blindly reviewed by a minimum of three referees. Papers will be
evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical
content, style and clarity. Note that in previous editions of this
track the acceptance rate at this track was below 33%.

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via the online
track management system. 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 paper content
guidance, questions or problems.



  • The final paper should be five pages long using the two-column
    ACM SIG template (around 4,000 words). Authors have the option to add
    up to three more pages to the paper at additional expense. The
    published paper can not exceed eight pages.

  • The paper must be formatted using the two-column ACM SIG format
    (tighter alternate style). Document templates are available at href="">

  • All papers submissions must be made electronically in PDF format
    using the system available at the href="">OE track site.

  • To facilitate the blind review process, the authors names should
    not appear anywhere in the paper submitted for review, and
    self-references to previous work 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 and ACM's Digital Library as extended abstracts.

  • Questions should be directed to the Track Chairs via e-mail
