Following the tradition of previous conferences, EDOC 2014 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.
