Conference Series : Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering
Call For Papers
Workshop submission deadline : October 19 2012
Paper submission deadline: November 30 2012 (Extended December 7 2012)
Tutorial submission deadline: December 14 2012
Notification of acceptance: February 17 2013
Conference, Workshops and Related Events: June 17-21 2013
CAiSE welcomes all submissions that fall in the domain of information systems engineering, in particular those in the following list. Four kinds of contributions are accepted: technical papers, empirical evaluation papers, reports of experience, and exploratory papers. This year, the conference will be particularly glad to receive exploratory papers that share visions, novel approaches, or insight into new information systems engineering paradigms.
The CAiSE topics of interests include, but are not restricted to:
Methods, techniques and tools for IS engineering
Innovation and creativity in IS engineering
Enterprise architecture and enterprise modelling
Business process modelling, analysis and management
Requirements, models, and software reuse
Adaptation, evolution and flexibility issues
Domain engineering IS in networked & virtual organizations
Knowledge, information, and data quality
Languages and models
Mining, monitoring and predicting
Variability and configuration Matching, compliance and alignment issues
Conceptual design and modelling
Security Service science
Innovative platforms, architectures and technologies for IS
Component based development
Distributed, mobile, and open architecture
Innovative database technology
IS and ubiquitous technologies
Adaptive and context-aware IS
Domain specific IS engineering:
Enterprise applications (ERP, COTS)
Data warehouses and business intelligence
Knowledge management systems
Content management systems
Types of contributions:
Formal and/or technical papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or conceptual) in the field of IS engineering. Atechnical paper should clearly describe the situation or problem tackled, the relevant state of the art, the position or solution suggested and the potential ‐ or, even better, the evaluated ‐ benefits of the contribution.
Empirical evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions with scientific means, i.e. by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, formal analyses, mathematical proofs, etc. Scientific reflection on problems and practices in industry also falls into this category. The topic of the evaluation presented in the paper as well as its causal or logical properties must be clearly stated. The research method must be sound and appropriate.
Experience papers present problems or challenges encountered in practice, relate success and failure stories, or report on industrial practice. The focus is on ‘what’ and on lessons learned, not on an in‐depth analysis of ‘why’. The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given. Readers should be able to draw conclusions for their own practice.
Exploratory Papers can describe completely new research positions or approaches, in order to face to a generic situation arising because of new ICT tools or new kinds of activities or new IS challenges. They must describe precisely the situation and demonstrate how current methods, tools, ways of reasoning, or meta‐models are inadequate. They must rigorously present their approach and demonstrate its pertinence and correctness to addressing the identified situation.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS format and should not exceed 15 pages, including all text, figures, references and appendices. Submissions not conforming to the LNCS format, exceeding 15 pages, or being obviously out of the scope of the conference, will be rejected without review. Information about the Springer LNCS format can be found at Springer.
Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract. The type of paper (technical/empirical evaluation/experience/exploratory paper) should be indicated in the submission. Publication. Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'13 and published in the conference proceedings, which is published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
