Call for Papers
Information Systems Engineering in Times of Crisis
Real-time information systems and overly complex financial products have been blamed as causes of recent financial crises. The IS Engineering community is treating such phenomena as challenges, to be addressed through research and improved practices. In particular, our community has begun to address the role of information systems in predicting, preventing, and reacting to crises of many different kinds: data-centric financial and fiscal dependency analysis of the globalized financial systems, resilience of critical infrastructures by information management, reaction to natural disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, etc. Due to the very nature of crises as unexpected events with broad and vast impact, IS Engineering challenges traditional wisdom and methodologies, as well as interactions between research and practice including stakeholders such as crisis victims.
CAiSE '14 will, as always, act as a forum of discussion that brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of IS Engineering. It will be the place to share mature research, ground-breaking ideas, and experience reports in our discipline.
CAiSE welcomes all submissions that fall in the domain of information systems engineering. This year, the conference extends a special welcome to papers that address the role of IS engineering in crisis situations. Four kinds of contributions are accepted: technical papers, empirical evaluation papers, reports of experience, and exploratory papers. The CAiSE topics of interest include, but are not restricted to:

Author Guidelines
Types of contributions. 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 Conditions. 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 characterizing 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.
Publication. Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'14 and published in the conference proceedings, which is published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Authors elected best papers from the conference will be invited to submit an expanded version for publication in the journal, Information Systems.

Venue
Thessaloniki is the second largest city of Greece, with a population of 1.000.000 people. Apart from its landmark, the White Tower, the city boasts important historical sites, museums and cultural activities. It is also known as a cosmopolitan and commercial center, with exceptional nightlife in its famous Ladadika quarter. The music scene in the city is vibrant and diverse and includes nightclubs, dance halls, discos, cafes and music bars, jazz clubs and more, along with a wealth of live performances, both musical and theatrical. In addition to important Byzantine and Archaeological museums within the city, travellers can visit the Archaeological site of Vergina (the capital of ancient Macedonia). This is the venue of Phillip's tomb (the father of Alexander the Great), a site full of remarkable treasures of art and culture. Also within a short distance (45 minutes by car) one can visit mount Olympus (the mountain of the ancient Gods) where "Dion" the holy city of ancient Macedonia is located. For these and many other reasons, Thessaloniki is the cultural capital of northern Greece! CAISE'2014 will be hosted at the MET Hotel (http://www.themethotel.gr), located very close to the historic center of Thessaloniki, 17 km from "Macedonia" airport. A block of rooms has been reserved for the conference registrants.

Call for Workshop Proposals
CAiSE is a well-established highly visible conference series on Information Systems (IS) Engineering. It covers all relevant topics of 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 developments.
CAiSE'14, the 26th instantiation 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 the 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 in one volume in the Springer LNBIP series. According to Springer standards, the acceptance rate of full papers (12 pages) should not exceed 45%-50%. Some of the papers might be accepted as short ones (6 pages) and they will appear in a designated section of the proceedings. However the overall 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 LNBIP volume. The workshop organizers are expected to manage their own proceedings (e.g., using CEUR series).
Workshop proposals should be submitted via easychair. 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.
Dates
19th October 2013 Deadline for submission of Workshops proposals
10th November 2013 Notification of workshop acceptance
3rd April 2014 Camera ready of all papers and summary by workshop chairs
16-17th June 2014 Workshops
Detailed instructions for workshop proposers
The proposal (length up to 1000 words) should cover the following points:
1. Workshop title, length (1 day, 2 days), preferred date, workshop type (presentation-oriented or discussion-oriented).
2. The organisers (PC chairs, other organisers who will be present at the workshop or are otherwise involved, including the person responsible for the web presence and communications). Please include names, addresses, affiliations, and indicate the main responsible person. The submission should include a one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications and experience.
3. Purpose: How does the focus of the workshop differ from the main conference? How does the focus of the workshop differ from other potential workshops (you are advised to look at the workshops and working conferences held at CAiSE 2013 and differentiate your scope from theirs)? What are the main goals? Please list the workshop topics.
4. Organization of the workshop: Specify the type of contributions, distribution into sessions, type of sessions, etc. Mention if you plan to have any keynote speaker (please note that the organization will not cover fees, neither travel expenses, nor hotel and registration cost). Include any special requirement on infrastructure and room layout. In particular, specify the proceedings type. In presentation-oriented workshops LNBIP will be the default option; in discussion-oriented workshops, specify how you will publish the contributions and how do you plan to make them available to attendees (especially if you plan to require some support from the organization).
5. Tentative list of PC members.
6. An estimate of the number of papers to be accepted, and the number of attendees. If applicable, short information on previous editions of the workshop series (this should include submission, acceptance, and attendance information).
7. Short information on your plans for publicizing your workshop and making it highly visible.

Call for Tutorial Proposals
http://delab.csd.auth.gr/caise2014/tutorials/Call_for_Tutorial_Proposals.php
CAiSE'14 invites proposals for tutorials in technical areas of Information Systems engineering. These mini-tutorials will be 90 minutes long and should aim at offering new insights, knowledge, and skills to managers, teachers, researchers, and students seeking to gain a better understanding of the state-of-the-art in Information Systems engineering. They are a good way to get a broad overview of multiple topics in a single day.
Tutorials are intended to provide independent instruction on a topic of relevance. Therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialized researchers. Tutorial speakers should be prepared to cope with this diversity.
Tutorials will be organized in parallel with the technical sessions of the main conference and participants of the conference will have free access to all them.
Tutorial proposals should be submitted to both Tutorial Chairs. Prior contact with the tutorial chairs is encouraged. The tutorial committee will review each proposal and will select quality proposals that fit the criteria mentioned above. Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the tutorial program as a whole. Factors to be considered also include: relevance, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; effectiveness of teaching methods; and past experience and qualifications of the instructors.
Dates
13th December 2013 Deadline for submission of mini-tutorial proposals
17th February 2014 Notification of tutorial acceptance
16-20th June 2014 Tutorials (schedule TBA)
16-17th June 2014 Workshops
Detailed instructions for tutorial proposers
