1st International Workshop on Capability based Engineering
(of Service and Process aware Systems)

In conjunction with the 13th International Conference on Web Information
System Engineering (WISE 2012)

November 28 - 30, 2012
Paphos, Cyprus

Important Dates
Abstract submission: September 10, 2012
Paper submission: September 17, 2012
Author notification: October 8, 2012
Camera-ready copies: October 15, 2012
Workshop date: November 28, 2012

The concept of capability, that is the semantics of an action or specific functionality, is a cornerstone in modern Information Systems especially those
service or process aware. Dedicated techniques for capability management and engineering can be applied and reused in a large number of areas
such as SOA, BPM, Cloud Computing and Internet of Things and will certainly boost several related research efforts in these areas.

Many key techniques for service and process engineering involve capability-based engineering at first.
However, despite the importance of this concept, it has not been treated as a first-class citizen and has always been hidden behind other encompassing concepts
such as the notions of service and business process. Capability management and engineering techniques need to deal with several
research problems that arise in different contexts. These problems include, among others, capability complexity, different levels of
abstraction and granularity, and capability configurability and dynamicity.

The workshop aims at shading the light on the importance of capability engineering as well as at bringing together researchers and practitioners working
in capability engineering and functional aspects.

Topics of interest
Topics of interest include:
+ Capability Engineering
- Capability description: formal specification, semantically enabled description, lexical-based description
- Capability modelling: methodology for capability modelling, capability mining and extraction from other related artefacts,
statistical methods for capability modelling
- Capability matching
- Capability composition
- Capability catalogues/repositories: organisation, navigation and visualisation
- Handling dynamicity in capability engineering
- Handling configurability in capability engineering
- Non Functional properties of capabilities
+ Capability Engineering applied to related domains
- Capability-based information systems management
- Capability-based service engineering
- Capability-based business process management
- Capability-based cloud computing management
- Capability-based IoT management
- Capability-based application classification and indexing
+ Capability Engineering in practice
- Ontologies and vocabularies for domain-specific capabilities
- Surveys and empirical studies
- Industrial and real use-cases

Submission Guidelines
The workshop is soliciting both academic and industrial research contributions which have not been published elsewhere.
Two types of papers are accepted for submission:
- Regular papers: should have a length of 14 pages and present mature work.
- Short and position papers: should have a length of 6 pages and present work in progress having an original idea behind.

Submitted papers must be written in English and formatted according to Springer LNCS format.
Papers must be in PDF format and should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair submission system at:

The review process will be a double-blinded peer-review. So please don't mention author details in the paper.

The proceedings of the WISE 2012 workshops will be published by Springer in its Lecturer Notes in Computer Science series.
The proceedings will be published post conference.
At least one author for each accepted paper MUST register for the workshop and present the paper.
