In a networked world value chains are modularized and enterprise applications are thus distributed over several companies. For the consequent modularization of application systems, component- or service-oriented approaches appear to be promising – not only to improve inter-company cooperation, but also to overcome typical problems that come along with monolithic enterprise applications, e.g. high

maintenance or system evolution costs.

The conference offers a forum for related research and ties up to existing national and international workshop and conference series on Specifying Software Components (WCEM 2003), Component-based Business Applications (WKBA 1999-2003), Architectures - Components - Applications (AKA 2004), and Modelling Inter-organizational Systems (MIOS 2004).

Component-based business applications

    * Standards and standardization, standards for components, specification of components, component models and reference models, quality-standards for components
    * Methodologies for developing component-based systems, process models, composition and configuration, parameterization of component-based applications
    * Compatibility-tests and type systems, conflict resolution (e.g. in case of redundant component functionality), component markets

Enterprise architecture and component-based business application systems

    * Enterprise application architecture, component identification, component frameworks, contractual usage of components
    * Management of component-oriented applications, domain analysis and domain modelling, ontologies as basis for component standards
    * Congruent configuration of organizations and IT-infrastructure, reconfiguration of value networks and composition of application systems

Modularized inter-organizational enterprise applications

    * Modularized and distributed organizations and component-based application systems, enterprise application integration, service and component outsourcing
    * Architectures of modularized inter-organizational systems, ad-hoc collaboration and evolution of component-oriented inter-organizational systems
    * Service orientation and Web Services, service-level agreements and service specification

Paper Submission:     April 29th, 2005

Notification of Acceptance:     June 6th, 2005
Camera-ready Papers:     July 1st, 2005
Conference:     September 20th, 2005

The COEA 2005 will be held in conjunction with the Net.ObjectDays 2005, which is one of the major international conference on object-oriented and Internet-based technologies, concepts, and applications ( ). The Net.ObjectDays offer a variety of tutorials, workshops, and sub-conferences, which are held in one large congress centre and which can be attended by all participants.

In 2004, five sub-conferences published their proceedings within Springer’s LNCS series demonstrating the excellence of the combined event.

Net.ObjectDays 2005 take place in Erfurt ( ), which is the capital city of the state of Thuringia located in the "green heart of Germany". The first documentary reference to Erfurt dates back to 742 AD. It has a fine university and the city’s cultural, intellectual and economic dominance drew great personalities such as Luther, Adam Ries, Goethe, Schiller, Herder, Wieland, Bach, W. v. Humboldt, Zsar Alexander and Napoleon. The former wealth of the city is reflected in the many carefully restored Renaissance and half-timbered houses. There are many other historical buildings which together with the Krämerbrücke make up one of the best preserved medieval city centres in Germany.
