*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*<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*<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 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*
