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 between 9 to 12 pages and present mature work.

       - Short and position papers: should have a length of 4 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.
