Call For Papers

CAiSE 2018 - 30th International Conference on Advanced Information
Systems Engineering
11-15 June 2018, Tallin, Estonia

Abstract Submission: 24 November 2017 Paper Submission: 01 December 2017 (strict!)

Theme: Information Systems in the Big Data Era

Over the last years, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence technologies have gradually found their way into
mainstream information systems. As these technologies mature and demonstrate their business value, they go
from providing isolated functionality to becoming integrated into large and complex information systems,
which entails that they have to be maintained and evolved in a sustainable manner. This maintenance imperative
raises new challenges for information systems engineers due to the level of sophistication and the demanding
infrastructure requirements that characterize these technologies.

The CAiSE conference will continue its tradition as the premiere venue for innovative and rigorous research
across the whole spectrum of Information Systems Engineering, while placing a special emphasis on the theme of
Information Systems in The Big Data Era. This year’s theme acknowledges the disruptions brought about by the
abundance of Big Data sources on government and business services, their users and customers, as well as the
environments in which they are generated. This data abundance creates new opportunities to develop smart and
personalized information systems, but also raises new challenges for information systems engineers, for example
in the areas of scalable data cleaning, integration and processing, and real-time and predictive data analytics.
Besides offering an exciting scientific program, CAiSE ’18 will feature a best paper award, a special issue, and
a PhD-thesis award:201

* CAiSE ’18 Best Paper Award: CAiSE ’18 will award the best paper (prize 1.000 € – sponsored by Springer Verlag).
* Special Issue of CAiSE ’18 in the “Information Systems Journal”: Authors of the selected papers of CAiSE ’18
will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to the CAiSE ’18 special issue of the
„Information Systems Journal“.
* CAiSE ’18 PhD-Thesis Award: CAiSE’18 will award the best PhD thesis of a past CAISE Doctoral Consortium author
(co-sponsored by the CAiSE Steering Committee and Springer). Additional information will be provided soon for this

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 The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review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 listed at the end of the abstract.

Submission is done through CyberChair at the following page:
Each paper will be reviewed by at least two program committee members and, if positively evaluated, by one
additional program board member. The selected papers will be discussed among the paper reviewers on-line and
additionally during the program board meeting in Amesterdam. Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE ’18
and published in the conference proceedings
(Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)).

Main Conference
Abstract Submission: 24 November 2017
Paper Submission: 01 December 2017 (strict!)
Notification of Acceptance: 23 February 2018

Other deadlines
Workshop Proposals: 15 October 2017
CAiSE Forum: 4 March 2018
Notification of Acceptance: 1 April 2018

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 a generic
situation arising because of new ICT tools, new kinds of activities or new IS challenges. They must describe
precisely the situation and demonstrate why current methods, tools, ways of reasoning, or meta-models are
inadequate. They must also rigorously present their approach and demonstrate its pertinence and correctness to
addressing the identified situation.

For all the submissions and depending on their type, we invite the authors to be explicit about the research
method used.

Contributions are welcome in terms of models, methods, techniques, architecture and technologies.
Each contribution should explicitly address the engineering or the operation of information systems.
Each contribution should clearly identify the information systems problem addressed as well as the expected
positive impact of the contribution to information system engineering or operation. We strongly advise authors
to clearly emphasize those aspects in their paper, including the abstract.

Contributions about methods, models, techniques, architectures and platforms for supporting the engineering and
evolution of information systems and organizations in the big data era could include (but are not
limited to):

* Novel approaches to IS Engineering

Context-aware and adaptive systems
Agile enterprise models and architecture
Distributed, mobile and open architecture
