Call for Papers  

Information systems engineering concerns dealing with information systems in the broad sense, i.e. dealing with both the business aspects and the technical aspects, and doing so from the first idea through to disposal i.e. throughout the complete information systems life -cycle. It is important to understand that it is almost always the case in information systems development that there is an existing system that needs to be replaced, completely or partially, or there are existing systems that the newly developed system needs to interact with. Perhaps it is more correct to say that information systems development is always a question of adapting, changing or replacing existing systems and business structures. In that sense all information systems development may be thought of as maintenance

The ICAISE conference will continue its tradition as the platform for innovative and rigorous research across the spectrum of Information Systems Engineering. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two program committee members and, if positively evaluated, by one additional program board member. The selected papers will be discussed among the paper reviewers on-line and additionally during the program board meeting.

Contributions are welcome in terms of models, methods, techniques, architecture and technologies. Each contribution should explicitly address the engineering or the operation of information systems. Each contribution should clearly identify the information systems problem addressed as well as the expected positive impact of the contribution to information system engineering or operation. We strongly advise authors to clearly emphasize those aspects in their paper, including the abstract.
