The 22nd International Conference on Advanced Information
Systems Engineering (CAiSE'10)
7-11 June 2010, Hammamet, Tunisia

Evolving Information Systems

This year's special theme is "Evolving information systems".
Modern information systems are the result of the interconnection of systems of many organizations,
are running in variable contexts, and require both a lightweight approach to interoperability and
the capability to actively react to changing requirements and failures.
In addition, users of information systems are becoming more and more mobile and ubiquitous,
requiring the system to adapt to their varying usage contexts and goals.
The evolution of an information system should be a continuous process rather than a single step, and
it should be inherently supported by the system itself and the design of the information system should
consider evolution as an inherent property of the system.
The special events and invited speakers of CAiSE '10 will
shed light on this theme from various perspectives.

Goal: CAiSE'10 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners
in the field of information systems engineering. CAiSE'10 invites
submissions on the design, development, maintenance, and usage of
information systems - and especially submissions dealing with
evolving information systems.

The topics of interests include, but are not restricted to:

Methodologies and approaches for IS engineering
- Enterprise architecture and enterprise modelling
- Requirements engineering
- Business process modelling and management
- Simulation
- Model, component, and software reuse
- IS reengineering
- IS engineering approaches for adaptive and flexible information systems
- Service science
- Knowledge patterns and ontologies for IS engineering
- IS in networked & virtual organizations
- Method engineering

Innovative platforms, architectures and technologies for IS
- 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 systems (ERP, CRM, CRM)
- Data warehousing
- Workflow systems
- Knowledge management systems
- Content management systems

Quality concerns in IS engineering
- Knowledge, information, and data quality
- Quality of models and their languages
- Usability, security, trust, flexibility, interoperability

Important Dates:
Oct. 12, 2009: Tutorials & workshops submission deadline
Nov. 30, 2009: Paper submission deadline
Feb. 8, 2010: Notification of acceptance
June 7-11, 2010: Conference & workshops

Types of contributions: we invite four types of original and scientific

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. 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.

4. 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

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 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.

Publication: Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'10 and
published in the conference proceedings, which is published in the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
