Theme: Information systems for connecting people

Information systems are developed by people and for people. The theme
“Information systems for connecting people” emphasizes the wish to satisfy
the needs and requirements of people, both as individuals and as parts of
organizations, which are socio-technical systems.

In particular, this theme emphasizes the role of information systems in
communication among individuals, organisational units, and organizations
themselves.  It may also imply knowledge building and knowledge sharing,
all kinds of decision making, negotiating and reaching agreements, bridging
differences and distances among various points-of-view, perspectives,
positions and/or cultures.

Information systems that satisfy these are usually communication and
cooperation-intensive systems. Examples include, on the individual side,
collaborative applications and social networks, and on the organizational
side, globalization and interoperability support, inter-organizational
processes, enterprise computing, social computing, and more.  The sociality
is also a new paradigm when applied to information systems.  Developing
such systems requires a good understanding of (i) how an individual
operates, (ii) how the intentions and goals of an individual can be aligned
with the organizational ones, (ii) how individual capabilities as well as
limitations are represented and taken into account or alleviated in system
design. Combined with state-of-the-art technology, this understanding will
guide the development of next generation information systems.

We believe that those principles will challenge and question research
efforts in information systems engineering during the next decade and will
also nurture multi-disciplinary research. Research related to this theme
can address all life-cycle phases of information systems that connect
people, from human and organizational requirements to utilization of data
created by such systems.

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.

Submission is done through CyberChair (see http://caise2016.si/)


Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE ’16 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.
