Scope of VEnMo


In computer science and information systems development, enterprise modelling (EM) is used for different purposes, like representing requirements, visualising established work processes, specifying system design, expressing information structures, formalising the relationships between organisational structures and IT landscapes and many more. Despite this large spectrum of Modelling purposes and use cases, the value of Modelling in general and of enterprise models in particular is still subject of research. The 1st VEnMo Workshop invites researchers and practitioners with strong interest in the value of EM to discuss approaches and experiences in measuring, assessing, evaluating, and improving the value of enterprise related models like enterprise models, enterprise architecture models, or business process models. While it is common sense that EM adds value to organisations, existing research is still vague regarding how this value manifests. Therefore, the workshop aims to shed light on existing as well as new theories, concepts and frameworks for describing, understanding and measuring the benefit of EM. One important aspect in this context may be the quality of EM, as only models of an adequate quality with respect to their intended purpose allow organisations to exploit the full value of EM. Therefore, the workshop further encourages researchers and practitioners to report on insights or approaches how to assess the quality of enterprise models. Contributions may span from generic methods and appropriate quantifiable quality metrics to studies that investigate what makes an enterprise model of high quality from the perspective of relevant stakeholders. However, we support a broad interpretation of the topics "value" and "quality" and encourage submissions also in related areas.


Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

  • interpretations or conceptualisations of the terms "value" and "quality" in the context of Enterprise related Models (EM, EA models, BPM, ...)
  • new approaches to measure, assess, evaluate, or improve the value of enterprise related models
  • interrelations between model, method, and tool value
  • perceived value of models, methods, and tools
  • stakeholder perspectives on value and quality of EM
  • metrics, quantitative, and qualitative approaches to assess the quality of enterprise related models
  • theories or best practices for maximising Modelling value
  • relationship between quality, quantity and value
  • management of value aspects in modelling
  • case studies and industrial experience reports on successful or failed application of approaches to assess the value or quality of enterprise related models
  • tools, infrastructure and environments supporting the assessment of value or quality of enterprise related models
  • empirical studies, evaluation and comparison of measurement techniques and models
  • we support a broad interpretation of the topics "value" and "quality" and encourage submissions also in related areas

Call For Papers


VEnMo 2019 calls for original submissions from research and practice in the following three categories:
  1. Full Papers:

    Papers describing concepts and methods in the form of Research Papers (up to 12 pages).
  2. Short Papers:

    Short Papers: Papers describing concepts and methods in the form Solution Proposals or Pre-Studies (up to 6 pages).
  3. "Alternative Formats":

    Additionally, we accept alternative formats, like conducting experiments or discussions with the participants on a certain topic. If you are interested in doing so, please hand in a short abstract of 3 pages describing your concept, i.e. what you plan to do and what the result should be.

All workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). These proceedings will be made available to all registered participants approximately four months after the workshops, while preliminary proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.

Papers should be written in English, following the LNBIP format and should be submitted through the BPM 2019 easychair installation. There, you can submit your manuscript selecting the workshop track "Workshop Value and Quality of Enterprise Modelling".
