Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer scientists, IT decision makers, enterprise architects, solution designers, and practitioners to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions from the perspectives of academia, industry, and government. Over that time, new technologies were emerging, e.g., component and service architectures, model-driven engineering, business process management, event-based processing and big data, each of which brought new enterprise challenges and themes to EDOC conferences (and indeed related new conferences in their own right).

The theme of EDOC2021 is on considering enterprise computing challenges in the context of new technologies related to the Industry 4.0 and beyond, including AI, data science, distributed ledgers/blockchain, digital twins, IoT, genomics and augmented reality. The aim is to start addressing new business challenges in the domains such as healthcare, advanced manufacturing, environmental sciences, sustainable agriculture and FinTech, while ensuring compliance with the related human rights, ethics and legal challenges and longer-term interoperability strategies.
