                               CALL FOR PAPERS
The 1stInternational Workshop on Towards Fully Enterprise 2.0 (FE2.0)
                              in conjunction with
8th IFIP WG 8.1 working conference on the Practice of Enterprise Modelling  

This workshop would like to be an opportunity for researchers from both  
disciplines Business Process Management (BPM) and Web2.0 technologies  
(exemplified by social networks, online communities, collaborative  
systems, and crowd-based platforms) to discuss how enterprises could  
capitalize on these technologies so that a new generation of business  
processes can spread over the business and social worlds.

Today’s enterprises are caught in the middle of a major financial storm  
that is jeopardizing their profit, growth, and even survival. To respond  
to this storm, enterprises need to improve their business processes and  
align their development strategies with market needs. Regular enterprise   
applications like Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) and Supply Chain  
Management (SCM) implement structured business processes in which the  
steps to perform are well defined. Basically, there is a little room for  
creativity and innovation during the completion of these processes without  
triggering a complex re-thinking process that usually takes time to  
implement and see its effects, which is sometimes late and inefficient due  
to constant changes. Various on-the-fly decisions may be made based on  
unstructured data that people receive from various sources. Examples of  
sources include social media as part of the Big Data ``fever’’. An  
enterprise 2.0 is one that, in addition to having an online presence,  
strives to open up new communication channels with various stakeholders  
using Web2.0 technologies such as social networks, wikis, blogs,  
crowd-based platforms, and other emergent social systems. Different  
studies encourage enterprises to allow their employees to embrace social  
applications in order to establish and foster contacts with their  
colleagues, customers, and suppliers. However, the richness and complexity  
of information of these applications arise challenges on how enterprises  
should capture and structure this information for future use while  
preserving user’s privacy, ownership, and information sensitivity.

Topics of interest
This workshop aims at addressing the lack of techniques and guidelines  
that would enable enterprises to weave social elements into the life cycle  
of designing, developing, and deploying business processes. This should  
lead into social business processes that assist employees establish and  
maintain social networks of contacts, rely on some privileged contacts  
when needed, and form with other peers strong and long lasting social  
collaborative groups. In today’s economies, an enterprise’s ability to  
sustain its growth and competitiveness depends on how well it socially  
manages its communications with various stakeholders for instance,  
customers, suppliers, competitors, and partners.

Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
•	BPM for the enterprise 2.0
•	Standards for the enterprise 2.0
•	Methods for designing the enterprise 2.0
•	Crowd-driven business process management
•	Semantic technologies for the enterprise 2.0
•	Resource monitoring in the enterprise 2.0
•	Exception handling in social business processes
•	Guidelines and best practices for the enterprise 2.0
•	Privacy and security in the enterprise 2.0
•	Big data analytics for BPM
•	Context management in the enterprise 2.0

•	Case studies

Springer’s LNCS formatting guidelines. Submissions must be in English and  
not exceed 8 pages (short papers) and 16 pages (long papers) of length.   
Authors must upload their paper as PDF file using the EasyChair submission  

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by 2-3 PC members each. Selection  
criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, and  
technical soundness. Some preference may also be given to papers which  
address emergent trends in the future shape of the Web. Since the workshop
