**** Call for Papers ****

Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems are becoming a mature infrastructure in many organizations. Many firms are looking beyond their internal business processes and extending their information systems to integrate them with those of their partners. Linking these systems together is the objective of the emerging field of Enterprise Integration through technologies such as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Business Process Management (BPM). This mini-track seeks to explore issues, both academic and organizational, surrounding the integration of Enterprise Systems and linking ERP systems to other systems via SOA and BPM. Topics of special interest include the following:
- ERP in the Cloud
- ERP and the Internet of Services
- What is the role of Business Process Management/Modeling when deploying an Integrated Enterprise System?  What’s different in an era of Cloud and mature BPMS?
- How does ERP and the migration towards Cloud and SOA evolve or change the university or college curriculum?
- What are the costs and benefits of ERP/ Cloud/ SOA installations?  Have expectations been realized?  How do we know?
- What are the true costs of implementing an integrated enterprise solution and how are these costs accounted for in organizations? How does that change in a Cloud model?
- How are Integrated Enterprise Systems (ES) being adopted by organizations?  What changes do organizations go through to get and deploy an ES?  What resulting changes occur after the ES is implemented? Anticipated or not? Does this hold for Cloud-based ES?
- What are the common challenges and opportunities associated with integrating solutions within an enterprise? Across enterprises? How is integration changed when some systems reside on the Cloud?
- How do you manage the software development process in an ERP implementation in a Cloud era? How can the Project management and change management research be applied here? 
- What is the real value of hands-on experience with ERP/ SOA/ Cloud in college curricula?
- How are ERP systems being extended beyond the internal business processes?  What types of system-to-system interfaces are being used? 
- What SOA and Cloud standards need to be in place for future expansion of ERP systems?
- What are some of the issues surrounding ERP usage, implementation, etc. when companies merge or use different ERP systems to meet different needs of the same but diverse organization?
- What are the Benefits, Barriers, Costs of SOA/ Cloud technology?
- What factors influence SOA/ Cloud adoption and use?
- What are the implementation methodologies and the best practices for integrating business systems, both in-house and in the Cloud?
- ERP and/or SOA/ Cloud case studies
- How can we measure ERP and SOA/ Cloud performance?
- What are the emerging business models or what comes after SOA?
- What are the organizational, political, and cultural barriers related with ERP/  SOA/ Cloud Computing adoption?
- How do we standardize Service-Level Agreements for enterprise systems in the Cloud?
