Companies are increasingly relying on software applications to manage their data, and there is steady shift towards integrating them to support and optimise their business processes.
Engineering integration has been an active research field for years, since ad-hoc solutions are not adequate due to their high development and maintenance costs. Recently, the Service Oriented Architecture and the Semantic Web initiatives have provided new paradigms and technologies that help integrate applications and information. However, according to recent industrial reports, the cost of a typical integration project is still far from negligible, which is due to three main reasons: i) integration tools build on low-level constructs that do not support sufficiently specific integration problems; ii) data is becoming pervasively graph-based (RDF, RDFS), and the literature does not provide a technique to integrate such data; iii) most techniques focus on applications that provide a programmatic or a data-oriented interface, but there are many web applications that provide a user interface only.
The goals of this workshop are to provide a forum to exchange ideas, present results, share experience, and enhance collaborations amongst researchers, professionals, and developers in various aspects Enterprise Application and Enterprise Information Integration.
