Theme: Information systems for connecting people

Information systems are developed by people and for people. The theme “Information systems for connecting people” emphasizes the wish to satisfy the needs and requirements of people, both as individuals and as parts of organizations, which are socio-technical systems.

In particular, this theme emphasizes the role of information systems in communication among individuals, organisational units, and organizations themselves. It may also imply knowledge building and knowledge sharing, all kinds of decision making, negotiating and reaching agreements, bridging differences and distances among various points-of-view, perspectives, positions and/or cultures.

Information systems that satisfy these are usually communication and cooperation-intensive systems. Examples include, on the individual side, collaborative applications and social networks, and on the organizational side, globalization and interoperability support, inter-organizational processes, enterprise computing, social computing, and more. The sociality is also a new paradigm when applied to information systems. Developing such systems requires a good understanding of (i) how an individual operates, (ii) how the intentions and goals of an individual can be aligned with the organizational ones, (ii) how individual capabilities as well as limitations are represented and taken into account or alleviated in system design. Combined with state-of-the-art technology, this understanding will guide the development of next generation information systems.

We believe that those principles will challenge and question research efforts in information systems engineering during the next decade and will also nurture multi-disciplinary research. Research related to this theme can address all life-cycle phases of information systems that connect people, from human and organizational requirements to utilization of data created by such systems.

Author Guidelines

Types of contributions

We invite four types of original and scientific papers:
- Formal and/or technical papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or conceptual) in the field of IS engineering. A technical 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.
Submission Conditions

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 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.

Submission is done through CyberChair (see


Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE ’16 and published in the conference proceedings, which is published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Authors elected best papers from the conference will be invited to submit an expanded version for publication in the journal, Information Systems.
