THE ORGANIZATIONAL ENGINEERING TRACK
For the past twenty years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has
been a primary gathering forum for computer scientists, computer
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
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="http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html">http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html
- All papers submissions must be made electronically in PDF format
using the system available at the href="http://ceo.inesc.pt/sac2006/">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
