25thInternational Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering 
(CAiSE 2013)
Valencia, Spain,

 From June 17, 2013 to June 21, 2013
Valencia, SPAIN


2013 will be the 25th birthday of the International Conference CAiSE 
series. What has changed
since the last century, and what does it tell us about future trends in 
information systems

Information systems play, more than ever,a strategic roleat the very 
core of organisations.
More than ever, emerging innovative platforms, architectures and 
technologies raise new
questions that need to be addressed in a thorough way by science. More 
than ever, results from
withinlaboratories need to be sharedacross the academic community and 
industry to address new
educational and business opportunities. This year, CAiSE will, as it has 
always been, act as a
forum of discussion that brings together researchers and practitioners 
in the field of
information systems engineering. It will be the place to share mature 
research results as well
as ground-breaking ideas, and experience reports in information systems 

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

-Data warehouses and business intelligence
-Workflow systems
-Knowledge management systems
-Content management systems
-Sustainability-aware IS
-Semantic web

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 

-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 http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. 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

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).


Best papers at CAISE 2013 will be designated by the Scientific Committees
for a special issue of the Information Systems Journal, Elsevier!!!
