Call for Workshops proposal

CAiSE is a well-established highly visible conference series on Advanced Information Systems Engineering. It covers all relevant topics of information systems (IS) engineering such as methodologies and approaches for IS engineering, innovative platforms, architectures and technologies, and engineering of specific kinds of IS. CAiSE conferences also have the tradition of hosting several workshops in its area. Workshops are intended to focus on particular topics and provide ample room for discussion of new ideas and developments.

CAiSE 2016, the 28th edition of the CAiSE series, invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference, related to the CAiSE topics, covering new emerging topics and targeting ground-breaking papers in a special focus area.

Two kinds of workshops are invited:

Presentation-oriented workshops: These will concentrate on presentations of accepted papers and discussion about these papers. The proceedings of these workshops are intended to be published as one volume in the Springer LNBIP series.Some of the contributions might be accepted as short papers (6 pages) and they will appear in a designated section of the proceedings. According to Springer standards, the acceptance rate should not be higher than 45%-50%.

Discussion-oriented workshops: These will emphasize discussions facilitated by paper presentations. Since the main criterion for paper acceptance in such workshops is relevance and potential for raising discussion, they are not expected to have their proceedings in the Springer LNBIP volume. The workshop organizers are expected to manage their own proceedings (e.g., using the CEUR series). Workshop proposals should be submitted to the CAiSE’16 Workshops Chairs. Prior contact with the workshop chairs is encouraged.

The organizer(s) of approved workshops will be responsible for advertising their workshop, for eliciting high quality submissions, for the reviewing process of their workshop’s papers, and for the collection of camera-ready copies of accepted papers (verifying that they comply with the formatting rules). Organizers (including co-organizers) are expected to attend their entire workshop, and to provide a summary of the event to the CAiSE organisers. For those workshops to join the LNBIP proceedings, they will be asked to use Easychair for at least the final version of the papers to support an efficient proceedings process.

Important dates:

  • Deadline for submission of workshops proposals (via email): 11 October 2015
  • Notification of workshop acceptance: 6 November 2015
  • Camera ready of all papers and summary by workshop chairs: 30 March 2016
  • Workshops: 13-14 June 2016
