CAISE 2011 Call for participation

The 23rd International Conference on Advanced Information Systems 
Engineering (CAiSE 2011) will be organized on 20-24 June 2011, in London.

In conjunction to this event will be held:
- two working conferences: EMMSAD'11 and BPMDS'11;
- eleven workshops: SSW, BUSITAL, CMM, DSE, GRCIS, INISET, ODISE, 
- eight tutorials;
- a doctoral consortium;
- ...

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

We link this yearís 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.

CAiSEí11 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:
