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 
- 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 submission.

Submission is done through CyberChair (see http://caise2016.si/)


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.
