    IWEI is an International IFIP Working Conference covering all aspects of enterprise interoperability with the purpose of achieving flexible cross-organizational collaboration through integrated support at business and technical levels. It provides a forum for discussing ideas and results among both researchers and practitioners. Contributions to the following areas are highlighted: scientific foundations for specifying, analyzing and validating interoperability solutions; architectural frameworks for addressing interoperability challenges from different viewpoints and at different levels of abstraction; maturity models to evaluate and rank interoperability solutions with respect to distinguished quality criteria; and practical solutions and tools that can be applied to interoperability problems to date. This year’s IWEI – IWEI 2013 – was held on March 27-28, 2013, in Enschede, The Netherlands, following previous events in Stockholm, Sweden (2011), Valencia, Spain (2009), Munich, Germany (2008), and Harbin, China (2012). The theme of IWEI 2013 is “Information, Services and Processes for the Interoperable Economy and Society‿, thus especially soliciting submissions and discussions related to the three previously mentioned interrelated areas for enterprise interoperability. IWEI 2013 was organized by the IFIP Working Group 5.8 on Enterprise Interoperability in co-operation with INTEROP VLab. The objective of IFIP WG5.8 is to advance and disseminate research and development results in the area of enterprise interoperability. IWEI provides an excellent platform to discuss the ideas that have emerged from IFIP WG5.8 meetings, and, reversely, to transfer issues identified at the conference to the IFIP community for further contemplation and investigation.
