Workshop Background and Goals  

It is the aim of this workshop to stimulate the exchange of ideas/experiences of practitioners, researchers, and engineers working in the area of validating/verifying software for enterprise information systems (EIS). We will welcome both practical and theoretical papers, including case studies, from all areas related to increasing the confidence in the correctness of EIS software, such as:

Large Scale Component Based Development Combination of verification systems
Reuse of specifications and proofs Quality control and assurance
Software Architecture Application Integration
Quality attributes Dependability
Case studies Use cases
Simulations Testing
Requirements  Petri nets
Formal methods Model checking
Process algebra Deductive systems
Safety critical systems Notation Standards (UML, XML, ...)
Consistency Checking and Data Integrity Finite-state abstr. of infinite-state systems

We will aim at including reports on methods currently used for EIS validation/verification as well as existing approaches in academic environments, hoping that both practitioners and researchers will benefit from such a mixture of presentations.

Three main categories of submissions/presentations will be considered: a) regular papers, b) abstracts of work in progress and position papers (e.g. for Ph.D. students wishing to obtain feedback on early stages of their research), and c) tool demonstrations. All submissions falling in any of these categories have to follow the procedure explained below under the heading "Submission of Papers". Papers not complying with the formatting guidelines will not be evaluated. Please indicate clearly which of the three categories of papers your submission belongs to.

Format of the Workshop  

The workshop will consist of oral presentations of papers submitted in advance, which will be peer-reviewed. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the form of a book by ICEIS. 

Contacts will be made with an International Journal to publish a selection of best papers.

Invited Speakers

- Klaus Havelund, NASA Ames Research Center (USA)
- Xudong He, Florida International University (USA)

Submission of Papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for oral presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only full papers in English will be accepted, and the length of the paper should not exceed 10 pages. Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex format) are available at the ICEIS web site. Postscript/RTF versions of the manuscript should be submitted thru ICEIS web-based paper submission procedure. In addition, to avoid lost papers, an email must be sent to both workshop chairs including: category of paper, title, authors' affiliation, and an abstract of the paper submitted.

Important Dates  

Full paper submission: February 15, 2005
Author notification: March 8, 2005
Camera-ready paper submission: March 18, 2005
