CAiSE Forum

The CAiSE Forum is a place within the CAiSE conference for presenting and discussing new ideas and tools related to information systems engineering. Intended to serve as an interactive platform, the forum aims at the presentation of emerging new topics, demonstration of innovative systems and tools, as well as practical experiences. The Forum sessions at the CAiSE conference will facilitate the interaction, discussion, and exchange of ideas among presenters and participants.

Paper publication

Accepted papers will be published in CEUR Proceedings and, after the conference, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to the journals Complex Systems Informatics and Modeling Quarterly ( and ComSIS – Computer Science and Information Systems (

Important dates

  • Paper submission deadline: 20 March 2016 (closed)
  • Notification of acceptance: 25 April 2016
  • Camera-ready of all papers: 10 May 2016
  • Conference: 13-17 June 2016

Author guidelines



We invite three types of submissions:

  • Visionary short papers present innovative research projects, which are still at a relatively early stage and do not necessarily include a full-scale validation. We specially encourage submissions by starting PhD students.
  • Demo papers describe innovative tools and prototypes that implement the results of research efforts. The tools and prototypes will be presented as demos in the Forum.
  • Experience reports are first-hand and evidence-based descriptions of how state-of-the art methods or tools have been applied in real settings or taught in class.

Forum papers should be submitted in PDF format. They must not exceed 8 pages in LNCS format (see The submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submission should be made through the conference management system available at the

It is expected that one of the authors presents the short paper or the tool demonstration and participates at the forum discussions. The presentation will be possible as a poster (for visionary short papers) or demo (for demo papers). A large space is to be left for exchange of positions and ideas among the authors and the audience.
