Conceptualization of Modelling Methods (CMM)

A growing number of groups around the world design, in a variety of 
application domains, their individual modelling methodologies in 
addition to the standard ones. Although there are a lot of prototypical 
implementations there is no conclusive answer on how meta-modelling 
concepts and meta-modelling platforms address challenges that arise when 
it comes to implementing theoretical method specifications as an 
IT-based modelling technique.
Thus the workshop aims to offer a forum where researchers can exchange 
ideas and start or expand cooperation with like-minded colleagues on 
these topics.

Organisers: Dimitris Karagiannis and Xavier Franch

Submission deadline: 25th of February 2011
Notification of acceptance: 14th of March 2011
Camera-ready papers: 30th of March 2011


Domain Specific Engineering (DsE at CAiSE’2011)

Domain Specific Engineering (DsE) is concerned with building reusable 
assets, such as specification sets, patterns, and components, in 
specific domains. A domain in this context can be defined as an area of 
knowledge that uses common concepts for describing phenomena, 
requirements, problems, capabilities, and solutions. The purpose of 
domain specific engineering is to identify, model, construct, catalog, 
and disseminate artifacts that represent the commonalities and 
differences within a domain. The purpose of this workshop is to bring 
together researchers and practitioners in the area of domain specific 
engineering in order to define the topic, identify possible points of 
synergy, common problems and solutions, and discuss visions for the 
future of the area.

Organisers: Iris Reinhartz-Berger, Arnon Sturm, Yair Wand, Jorn Bettin, 
Tony Clark, Sholom Cohen

Submission deadline: 25th of February 2011
Notification of acceptance: 20th of March 2011


INternet INformation Systems Pragmatics (IN2SP)

IN2SP aims to apply and deepen our theoretical understanding of 
pragmatics by dealing with new Internet challenges such as the Internet 
of Things Relating to the 2010 conference theme "Information Systems in 
a diverse world" IN2SP specifically addresses the tension between 
universal standards, interoperability requirements and ontology 
integration on the one hand, and local particularities, 
contextualization and ontology divergence on the other.

Organisers: Hans Weigand, Adrian Paschke

Submission deadline: 25th of February 2011
Notification of acceptance: 21st of March 2011
Camera-ready papers: 28th of March 2011


1st Workshop on Integration of IS Engineering Tools (INISET 2011)

Modern large-scale IS engineering projects typically involve the 
cooperation of a wide range of systems and tools that use different 
technical platforms and heterogeneous data models. Today’s system 
integration technologies are suitable to bridge most of the technical 
and semantic gaps between these systems and tools. However, error-prone 
and time-consuming human work (e.g., manually copying information from 
one tool to another) is often needed to handle integration concerns at 
the interfaces of the different tools. The goal of the workshop is the 
investigation of methods and techniques for the technical and semantic 
integration of multi-vendor (heterogeneous) engineering tools to improve 
effectiveness and efficiency of engineering projects.

Organisers: Thomas Moser, Richard Mordinyi, Tanja Vos

Submission deadline: 01st of February 2011
Notification of acceptance: 04th of March 2011
Camera-ready papers: 25th of March 2011


Ontology-Driven Information Systems Engineering Workshop (ODISE)

This workshop will explore the ways in which ontologies can help to 
shape Information Systems Engineering so as to more effectively evolve 
software solutions that align with organisational requirements and 
address the issues emerging from large complex families of IT systems. 
The workshop is aimed at promoting and investigating Ontology-Driven 
Information Systems Engineering by bringing together interested 
researchers and industrial practitioners.

Organisers: Sergio de Cesare, Frederik Gailly ,Mark Lycett , Grant 
Holland, Chris Partridge

5th Ontology, Models, Conceptualization and Epistemology in Social, 
Artificial and Natural Systems Workshop (ONTOSE)

The Fifth ONTOSE Workshop is continuing the effort of previous editions 
in forming a community of researchers interested in systems 
representations from a pluri-disciplinary and multi-perspective 
position. The Workshop is centered in the role of abstraction in 
man-made systems (as complex Information Systems), social systems (as 
organizations, social networks or service systems) or natural systems 
(as environmental or ecological systems) and on how these abstractions 
are useful for practical purposes in advanced Information Systems. 
Abstraction is represented in models of various kinds, be them graphical 
or using formal languages as in the case of ontologies. ONTOSE is aimed 
at providing a truly inter-disciplinary forum for researchers coming 
from very diverse fields, and as such encourages cross-fertilization and 
applied submissions.

Program co-chairs: Miguel-Angel Sicilia, Christian Kop, Fabio Sartori

Submission deadline: 21st of February 2011
Notification of acceptance: 13th of March 2011
Camera-ready papers: 27th of March 2011


International Workshop on Semantic Search (SSW)

The first edition of the International Workshop on Semantic Search over 
the Web (SSW) will discuss about data management issues related to the 
search over the web and the relationships with semantic web 
technologies, proposing new models, languages and applications. The 
research issues can be summarized by the following problems:
i. How can we model and efficiently access large amounts of semantic web 
ii. How can we effectively retrieve information exploiting semantic web 
iii. How can we employ semantic search in real world scenarios?

6th International Workshop on BUSinness/IT ALignment and 
Interoperability (BUSITAL 2011)

Nowadays, a sustainable competitive advantage is strictly related to 
capabilities of organizations to anticipate the constantly evolving 
business and technological environment, where business-IT alignment and 
interoperability are key success factors.
This workshop will contribute to creation of a structured body of 
knowledge on the existing academic and industrial approaches to 
business-IT alignment that would help (a) the practitioners to better 
estimate their needs and, based on these needs, to select or elaborate 
their strategies of business-IT alignment; (b) the researchers to get a 
better understanding of the problems encountered by practitioners and to 
improve their methodologies and approaches accordingly.
We invite submissions of high quality original papers reporting a 
synergy of innovative research and best practices on the following topics:
* Methodologies, frameworks, and tools for modeling, validation, and 
support of Business/IT alignment
* Qualitative and quantitative approaches for measuring Business/IT 
* Taxonomies for Business/IT alignment classification
* Business/IT alignment maturity models
* Constraints and issues associated with Business/IT alignment (e.g. 
cultural, technical, economical, legal, political, etc.)
* Business/IT alignment in organizational networks, including private 
and public sector
* Case studies, empirical reports, and industrial surveys illustrating 
success factors, challenges and failures of alignment

Systems (GRCIS)

The importance of governance and compliance is well recognized in 
enterprise systems and has increased drastically over the years as a 
result some of the largest scandals in corporate history. With 
increasing regulatory requirements comes an increase in complexity of 
facilitation of compliant business processes, and an increased reliance 
on technology to facilitate compliance management. This workshop will 
provide a forum for researchers from diverse areas and make a 
consolidated contribution in the form of new and extended methods and 
technologies that address the challenges of governance, risk and 
compliance in information systems.

BPMDS'11 working conference
The topics addressed by the BPMDS series are focused on IT support for 
business processes. This is one of the keystones of Information Systems 
theory. The 12th edition of the BPMDS series, as a working conference, 
would like to attract papers describing mature research in BPMDS, still 
giving place to industrial reports and visionary papers.
The theme chosen for BPMDS'11 visionary papers is Making BPM theory work 
in practice: "There is nothing more practical then a good theory (Kurt 
We invite the visionaries (from research and industry) to exploit this 
theme in relation to BPMDS.
We also welcome research papers that include ideas on how theoretical 
results discussed can be used in practice, as well as experience reports 
on using theories in practice. Nevertheless, we do not require for full 
research papers and experience reports to be directly connected to this 
theme (they should need to be explicitly relevant to BPMDS though).
