*Call for Workshop Proposals *

*26th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

*CAiSE'2014, 16-20 June 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece*


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

   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

   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

   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
   5. Tentative list of PC members.

   attendees. If applicable, short information on previous editions of the
   workshop series (this should include submission, acceptance, and attendance
