Call for Tutorials

CAiSE’24 invites proposals for tutorials on advanced topics in the field of Information Systems engineering. Tutorials should aim at offering new insights, knowledge, and skills to professionals, educators, researchers, and students seeking to gain a better understanding either about methods of broad interest in the field, or emergent paradigms that are ripe for practical adoption or that require further research to reach maturity.

Proposals emphasizing the special theme of the CAISE’24 conference “Information Systems in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” are encouraged, but proposals on other new or long-standing topics in information systems engineering are also welcome.

Tutorials should be focused on principles, concepts, and methods. Commercial or sales-oriented presentations are not allowed and will not be accepted.

Tutorials are intended to provide a pedagogic introduction to or overview of a topic of relevance. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be a heterogeneous audience, including novice graduate students, experienced practitioners, and specialized researchers. Tutorial speakers should be prepared to cope with this diversity in the audience.

Tutorials will be 90 minutes long and organized in parallel with the technical sessions of the main conference and participants of the conference will have free access to all of them.

Potential proposers are free to contact the tutorial chairs via e-mail to validate their idea prior to
the submission.

Selection criteria

The tutorial chairs will review each proposal and select a subset of them based on the following

1. relevance to the field of IS engineering;
2. anticipated appeal to the conference audience;
3. timeliness and importance for the conference audience;
4. past experience and qualifications of the instructor(s).

The tutorial chairs will also consider the complementarity of the proposal w.r.t. the conference
program and other tutorial proposals.

Submission guidelines

Tutorial proposals should be submitted to easychair using the conference submission site
( and then selecting the “CAiSE 2024
Tutorials” track.
The proposal (length up to 1500 words) should cover the following points:
● Title
● Presenters and affiliation
● Goal: The overall goal of the tutorial.
● Scope: Intended audience, level (basic or advanced), and prerequisites.
● Topic relevance and novelty: Specifically indicate the relevance to the scope of CAiSE, the relevance to practice, the novel aspects that would make this tutorial beneficiary and appealing to CAiSE participants.
● Structure of contents: Here you should provide a structured overview of your planned tutorial, organized into numbered sections and subsections. For each subsection, you should sketch its contents in a few sentences or bullet points.
● References: Provide references to papers, books, etc. that your tutorial builds on. Please specify previous venues at which similar tutorials have been presented by you and indicate the difference between the proposed tutorial and previous ones. CAiSE usually does not accept tutorials that have been presented in other venues.
● Sample Slides: Include at least 5 sample slides of the presentation you plan to give if your tutorial is accepted. Select slides that are typical of your presentation style. These slides have to be submitted in a separate PDF file.

● Tutorials will benefit from the local organizational infrastructure (registration, badges,
refreshments, beamers, screens, etc.).
● Advertisement of the tutorial on CAISE 2024 homepage and mailings.
● The conference fee will be waived for tutorial presenters (one fee per tutorial).
