    EDOC'97 will be followed by the 3rd Asia Pacific Distributed
    Solutions Event (DSE97), Oct. 26-29, 1997 at the same venue.

Distributed object technology has reached a stage which offers many
new promises for its use in business applications. It brings solutions
to the technical problems which the IT community has faced for many
years: interoperability between heterogeneous hardware and software
systems and evolution of IT systems to support changing business
requirements. The distributed object paradigms, such as CORBA,
ActiveX/DCOM, Java and TINA, as well as the guidelines of the ISO/ITU
standard  on Open Distributed  Processing (ODP) provide a sound basis
for building enterprise applications. However, in spite of the
benefits which OO, high  communication bandwidth and standard
middleware solutions could bring, there are still many problems which
prevent wide use of this technology within and among enterprises.
As a result, the focus of the IT community is gradually shifting
towards providing support for the use of distributed object technology
for a wide range of business applications. This includes having a
commonly accepted enterprise language for the description of enterprise
applications, suitable object models and  the underlying distributed
infrastructure, as a 'business bus' for enterprise wide applications.
These topics constitute an Enterprise Distributed Object Computing.

This first International Enterprise Distributed Object Computing
Workshop will bring together experts from different backgrounds
working on various aspects of Enterprise Distributed Object Computing.
A further aim of the event is to promote this important topic within the
Asia-Pacific Region. Due to the increasing interest in this area we
anticipate that we will have a substantial number of good presentations
with plenty of time for discussions.

The topics of the Workshop include, but are not limited to:
  - Distributed object architectures, frameworks and patterns
  - Enterprise architectures and WWW
  - Distributed business objects and components
  - ODP enterprise language extensions and refinements
  - ODP enterprise language and business process modelling
  - Distributed objects and intra and inter-organisational workflow
  - Role-based enterprise security
  - Distributed objects for electronic commerce
  - CSCW support for enterprise interactions and cooperation
  - Enterprise policy and management
  - Case studies on distributed enterprise systems
  - Domain architectures (finance, health, telecommunications)
  - Trader and Intelligent Brokers
  - Distributed intelligent agents for enterprise systems
  - The use of mobile computing in enterprise systems
  - Enterprise aspects of Quality of Service
  - Architecture Definition Languages and enterprise applications
  - Methods for enterprise distributed object computing

EDOC'97 will be held on the Gold Coast, Queensland, at one of the
Gold Coast's premier venues: Marriott Resort. The Gold Coast is the most
popular tourist destination in Australia. Its glorious sandy beaches
and sub-tropical, though mild climate, attract people from all over
the world.  The Gold Coast is located  80 km south of Brisbane, the
capital of Queensland, Australia's Sunshine State.

The Gold Coast offers a wide range of entertainment and sporting
activities, including many beautiful golf courses, fishing and boating
facilities, rainforest bushwalking, excellent restaurants and many
more attractions.

Accommodation (at a discounted conference rate) is available
at the workshop venue as well as at alternative accommodation nearby.

Registration and accommodation details will be available in the near future.
