Workshops: Call For Proposals
CAiSE is a well-established, highly visible conference series on Advanced Information Systems (IS) Engineering. It covers all relevant topics in the area, including 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 workshops in related fields. Workshops are intended to focus on particular topics and provide ample room for discussions of new ideas and developments.
CAiSE 2024, the 36th edition of the CAiSE series, invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference, related to the CAiSE topics, covering new emerging topics and targeting innovative papers in special focus areas.
Prospective workshop organisers should specify whether they plan an event with a presentation-oriented track, a discussion-oriented track, or both.
This track focuses on accepted papers with presentations followed by Q&A sessions, akin to conferences. The proceedings of these workshops are intended to be published in a joint volume in the Springer LNBIP series. Submissions must conform to the Springer LNCS/LNBIP format and should not exceed 12 pages. According to the Springer standards, the overall acceptance rate cannot exceed 45%-50%.
This track emphasizes discussions facilitated by paper presentations revolving around novel ideas and early-stage research. 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 Springer LNBIP volume.
The edition of a joint proceedings volume next to the LNBIP one for the discussion-oriented track is underway. Proceedings shall be submitted to CEUR-WS.org for online publication. Details on this aspect will be provided separately.
Workshop proposals should be submitted via EasyChair at the following address:
Please select the Author role and the CAiSE 2024 Workshops track.
Prior contact with the workshop chairs (email@example.com) is encouraged. The organizer(s) of approved workshops will be responsible for advertising their workshop, eliciting high-quality submissions, organizing the reviewing process of their workshop’s papers according to the principles and guidelines of CAiSE, and collecting 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.
Detailed instructions for workshop proposers
The proposal (up to 1000 words) should cover the following points:
- Workshop title, duration (1 day or 2 days), preferred date (3rd-4th June 2024)

- Information on the organizers (PC chairs, other organizers who will be present at the workshop or are otherwise involved, including the person responsible for web presence and communication). Please include names, addresses, and affiliations, indicating the main responsible person. The submission should include a one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizer, describing relevant qualifications and experience. Please specify at least one PC chair. PC chairs will not be allowed to submit papers to the workshop, but other organizers (who will have no oversight over the review process) are encouraged to do so.
- Purpose: What are the main goals of the workshop? Please list the workshop topics. How does the focus of the workshop differ from the main conference? How does the focus of the workshop differ from other potential CAiSE events? (Proponents are advised to look at the workshops and working conferences held at CAiSE 2022 and CAiSE 2023 and differentiate your scope from theirs.)
- Organization of the workshop: Specify the type of contributions, distribution into sessions, type of sessions, etc. Mention if you plan to have any keynote speaker (please note that the conference organization will not cover fees, travel expenses, accommodation and registration costs of keynote speakers). Include any special requirements regarding infrastructure and room layout.
- Tentative list of PC members.
- An estimate of the number of papers to be accepted, and the number of attendees. If applicable, short information on previous editions of the workshop series (this should include submission, acceptance, and attendance information). Short information on your plans for advertising your workshop and making it highly visible.
Services provided by CAiSE
