Call for Papers 10th workshop on Trends in Enterprise Architecture Research (TEAR)

The 10th TEAR workshop is organized in conjunction with the 27th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2015), June 8-12, Stockholm, Sweden.

The international TEAR series brings together Enterprise Architecture (EA) researchers from different research communities and provides a forum to present EA research results and to discuss future EA research directions.

The field of Enterprise Architecture (EA) has gained considerable attention over the last of years. EA is important because organizations need to adapt increasingly fast to changing customer requirements and business goals. This need influences the entire chain of activities of an enterprise, from business processes to IT support. Moreover, a change in a particular part of the overall architecture may influence many other parts of the architecture. For example, when a new product is introduced, business processes for production, sales and after-sales need to be adapted. It might be necessary to change applications, or even adapt the IT infrastructure. Each of these fields will have its own (partial) architectures. To keep the enterprise architecture coherent and aligned with the business goals, the relations between these different architectures must be explicit, and a change should be carried through methodically in all architectures. In contrast to traditional architecture management approaches such as IT architecture, software architecture or IS architecture, EA explicitly incorporates “pure” business-related artifacts in addition to traditional IS/IT artifacts. For Enterprise Architecture the focus is on the overall enterprise and concerns its organization, its components, the relationship between components and principles governing its design and evolution.


Topics relevant for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Case studies on EA
  • Combining BPM and EA
  • Drivers and obstacles of EA dissemination
  • EA and e-government
  • EA and organizational theory
  • EA and system development
  • EA and capability-based planning
  • EA business cases
  • EA communication and marketing
  • EA for small and medium-sized companies
  • EA governance and integration into corporate/IT governance
  • EA reference models, meta models and frameworks
  • EA usage in corporate strategic planning
  • Enterprise modeling, EA and MDA
  • Evolution of an EA
  • Incorporation of knowledge management and software engineering in EA
  • Measurement, metrics, and maturity models for EA artifacts and processes
  • Methodologies and research theory for EA research
  • Processes and patterns for EA development, mastering, communication and enforcement
  • Quality of EA models
  • Tool support for EA
  • Viewpoints in EA
  • EA analysis for decision-making, particularly for investments
  • Architectural Thinking in day-to-day decision making
  • Investigations of the EA needs of decision-makers

Important dates

Workshop paper submission deadline: February 13th, 2015
Workshop paper notification to authors: March 6th, 2015
Camera-ready paper: March 20th, 2015
Workshop: June 8th, 2015


Papers should describe innovative and significant original research relevant to TEAR as described in the topics section. Papers submitted for consideration must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere during the duration of consideration.

We solicit two types of papers:

  • Full papers (12 pages) describing significant original research in the topics listed above, and
  • Short papers (6 pages) discussing controversial issues or thought-provoking ideas not yet fully developed

The proceedings of all the workshops held in conjunction with CAiSE 2015 will be published as a single volume in the Springer LNBIP series.

All papers must be prepared in accordance with the Springer/LNBIP camera-ready format and be submitted electronically (in PDF) via the submission website.

All submissions should include title, authors, and full contact information. Detailed instructions for authors are available on the Springer website
