Conference Theme - IS Olympics: Information Systems in a diverse world

We link this year's CAiSE conference theme with the coming Olympic and
Paralympic Games, two international multi-sport events, which bring
together athletes from all the continents to celebrate sporting
excellence but also human diversity. Diversity is an important concept
for modern information systems. Information Systems (IS) are diverse
by nature ranging from basic systems to complex and from small to
large.  The process of constructing such systems is also diverse
ranging from ad-hoc methods, to structured and formal methods.
Diversity is also present amongst information systems developers, from
novice to experienced. Moreover, the wide acceptance of information
systems and their usage in almost every aspect of the human life has
also introduced diversity amongst users. Users range from novice to
experience and they demonstrate differences related to race,
ethnicity, gender, socio-economic status, age, physical abilities,
religious beliefs, and so on. It is therefore the responsibility of
the Information Systems Engineering community to engineer information
systems that operate in such diverse world.
On the other hand, looking at the issues of the modern Olympic Games,
we can identify a number of issues that rapidly make their appearance
in the area of Information Systems. The kind of systems that are
implemented and used in Olympic Games are varied and many. Every type
of system that a well established multinational organisation uses is
also established by the Local Organising Committee (OCOG), for
example, ERP, private telecoms, HR recruitment, CAD/CAM etc. Many
types of system that local governments use, such a town planning,
transportation, refuge collection, medical services, also play a
significant role. Many types of system that national governments use
are also present such as accreditation, physical security systems.
Moreover, the Olympic Games have a fixed starting date; everything
needs to work perfectly from the first day; there is a large number of
distributed (geographically) systems that need to be supported;
requirements come from different sources (IOC, sport event specific,
central administration, laws, sponsors etc). Similarly, an increasing
number of information systems need to start operation on a specific
day (restricted by laws and international agreements); important
information is stored so full operation is required from day one; the
need for international collaboration systems means that systems are
becoming larger and highly distributed; various stakeholders are
involved introducing different and sometimes conflicting requirements.
All these issues introduce a number of challenges for the Information
Systems Engineering community related to engineering, quality and
interconnectivity of information systems.

CAiSE'11 invites papers that address all these challenges. We also
specifically encourage submissions that address diversity issues,
either in terms of the information systems, the development team or
the information systems users. The topics of interests include, but
are not restricted to:

Methodologies and Approaches for IS Engineering:
-Enterprise architecture and enterprise modelling;
-Knowledge patterns and ontologies for IS engineering;
-Requirements engineering;
-Methodologies and Languages for Secure IS
-Business process modelling and management;
-IS engineering approaches for adaptive and flexible information systems;
-Simulation;
-IS in networked & virtual organizations;
-Model, component, and software reuse;
-Method engineering;
-IS reengineering;
-Quality of models and of modelling languages;
-Adaptive IS engineering approaches;
-Usability, trust, flexibility, interoperability;
-Knowledge, information, and data quality

Innovative platforms, architectures and technologies for IS engineering:
-Service-oriented architectures;
-Innovative database technology;
-Model-driven architectures;
-Semantic web;
-Component based development;
-IS and ubiquitous technologies;
-Software Agents architectures;
-Adaptive and context-aware IS;
-Distributed, mobile, and open architectures;

Engineering of specific kinds of IS:
-eGovernment;
-Enterprise systems (ERP, CRM);
-Data warehousing;
-Workflow systems;
-Knowledge management systems;
-Content management systems;

Emerging Areas of IS:
-IS & Digital Ecologies
-IS & Smart Buildings;
-IS & Digital Devices
-IS & their Economies

Author Guidelines

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 appropriate.
- 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 and Publication

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
characterising the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract.
Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'11 and published in the
conference proceedings, which are published in the Springer Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). A small selection of best papers
will be recommended for inclusion in a special issue of Information
Systems (latest impact factor: 1.966) dedicated to this conference.
At least one of the authors of an accepted paper must register for the
conference and attend the conference to present the paper.
