Call for Papers

CAiSE 2017 - 29th International Conference on Advanced Information 
Systems Engineering
12-16 June 2017, Essen, Germany

*http://caise2017.paluno.de/ *


Organizations (private or public) are entering in the digital world 
where real time data is available about their operations, their 
operating environments, third-party services offered to increase their 
performance as well as chances in the demands of their customers. This 
data abundance offers new opportunities but also raises new challenges 
for *information systems*. The systems have to exploit these data to 
help (networked-) organizations to decide and conduct appropriate 
business transformations necessary to guarantee their survival in a 
continuously changing world.

The digitalization of the world, the availability of the data in 
real-time and the increasing connections of things, IT-systems and 
organizations significantly increase the role of information systems in 
the organizations during the last decades. Historically, enabled by 
databases and file systems technologies supporting data storage and 
retrieval facilities, information systems have been proven instrumental 
in supporting management issues associated with the optimization and 
partial automation of processes and document flows in more efficient 

With the internet and web technologies, together with an increased 
quality of the information, information systems have started to 
progressively be considered as a centre of profit, rather than as a 
centre of costs. The transformation of data into information intensive 
services creating new customer/client value has led private and public 
organizations to reshape their business value proposition. Architecture 
of information systems has evolved to enable increasingly interconnected 
*service systems*.

Today, technologies (like IoT and natural interfaces) are becoming more 
and more pervasive allowing to sense more and more data on all the 
facets of an organization and of its environment. The collection of data 
is no longer limited to its processes and information flows. Data is 
available about almost any relevant aspect of the organization.  With 
the support of new computational and cognitive technologies for managing 
this abundance of data, the key challenge is to evolve information 
systems into *smart systems*. These systems have to be sufficiently 
agile to rapidly analyze, predict and manage the needed disruptive and 
incremental business transformations of operations. From a centre of 
profit, information systems are now becoming the centre for 
sustainability of the organizations.

*Awards and CAiSE'17 Special Issue*
_*CAiSE'17 will feature a best paper award, a special issue, and a 
PhD-thesis award:

* *CAiSE**'**17 Best Paper Award*:  CAiSE'17 will award the best paper 
(prize 1000 EUR - sponsored by Springer Verlag).
* *Special Issue of CAiSE'17 in the "Information Systems Journal**"*: 
Authors of the selected papers of CAiSE'17 will be invited to submit an 
extended version of their paper to the CAiSE'17 special issue of the 
"Information Systems Journal".
* *CAiSE PhD Award*: CAiSE'17 will award the best PhD thesis of a past 
CAISE Doctoral Consortium author ( co-sponsored by the CAiSE Steering 
Committee and Springer).

testimony of the 2016 CAISE PhD Award winner at 
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.com/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 information 
will be provided soon at http://caise2017.paluno.de/.

Each paper will be reviewed by at least two program committee members 
and, if positively evaluated, by one additional board committee member. 
The selected papers will be discussed among the paper reviewers on-line 
and additionally during the program board meeting in Luxembourg. 
Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'17 and published in the 
conference proceedings, which is published in the Springer Lecture Notes 
in Computer Science (LNCS).

Submission Deadlines**
*Main Conference Abstract Submission:        28.11.2016

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 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 why 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.

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

Submission Topics**

Contributions are welcome in terms of models, methods, techniques 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 and as 
well as the expected positive impact of the contribution to information 
system engineering or operation. We strongly advised to 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 digital connected world could include 
(but are not limited to):

* Adaptive Management
* Cloud Technology for Transformation
* Compliance and Governance
* Context Awareness
* Creativity and Innovation
* Cyber (Socio) Physical Systems
* Data and Business Analytics
* Domain Specialization
* Industry 4.0
* Internet of Things, Services and Data
* Monitoring of System Execution Context and Customer Needs
* Organizational Learning
* Planning and Monitoring Adaptations
* Service Orientation and Encapsulation
* Sustainability
