Following the tradition of previous conferences, EDOC 2015 plans to host a number of workshops alongside the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum for a group of typically 15 to 30 participants to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical approaches and applications. Each workshop should provide a balanced distribution of its time for both presentation of papers and discussions. We encourage prospective workshop organizers to submit proposals for highly-interactive workshops focusing on areas related to enterprise computing in general. Both research-oriented and applied topics are welcome.

Extended abstract (about 500-1000 words; approximately 1-2 pages) of the workshop, explaining importance of the workshop topics, fit within and complementarity with the EDOC 2015 conference, intended audience, and other relevant issues that are not adequately covered in the preliminary Call for Papers
  5. Preliminary Call for Papers (not all Program Committee members have to be confirmed at the workshop proposal submission time, although it is certainly beneficial to have some preliminary acceptances)

Please ensure that you adhere to the above workshop proposal guidelines providing all requested information using at most six pages. In addition, please provide a one page draft of your planned Call for Papers to the proposal (not included in the six pages).

Submit your workshop proposal electronically in PDF using the Springer LNCS style. The proposal must be submitted as a PDF file to the workshop committee chairs.
