CONFERENCE THEME

The special theme of the 24th edition of CAiSE is Information Services. 
The notion of service plays a more and more extensive role in the 
enterprise development. Indeed, most of the enterprise management and 
manufacture is based on the exchange of services: services to the 
customers and/or citizens, services to support the inter-organisational 
collaboration as well as services to accomplish intra-organisational 
activities. Many organizations and companies are sharing services with 
others, interfacing services from others, or outsourcing their ICT 
resources to various locations worldwide aided by the internet. For all 
of them, the concept of service becomes a cornerstone of their processes 
of collaboration, innovation and value creation. In this context, the 
information systems (IS) engineering is moving towards the adoption of 
service-driven architectures where intra- and inter-organisational 
business activities are carried out with the help of information 
services. Information services are considered as a new means to deal 
with the complexity, modularity and interoperability of the constantly 
growing IS. Design and development of information services and 
information service-driven architectures become key to the success of 
organisations and their business. Therefore, the service-driven IS 
domain becomes a new complex domain, which requires new 
interdisciplinary approaches and new transdisciplinary ways of thinking.

CAiSEÝ12 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the 
field of information systems engineering and invites papers that address 
all these challenges. The topics of interests include, but are not 
restricted to:

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

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

Engineering of specific kinds of IS:
- eGovernment
- Enterprise applications (ERP, CRM)
- Data warehousing and business intelligence
- Workflow systems
- Knowledge management systems
- Content management systems
- Sustainability-aware IS

**********************************************************************
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. 
The type of paper (technical/empirical evaluation/experience/exploratory 
paper) should be indicated in the submission.
Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'12 and published in the 
conference proceedings, which are published in the Springer Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
