Over the last years, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence technologies have gradually found their way into mainstream information systems. As these technologies mature and demonstrate their business value, they go from providing isolated functionality to becoming integrated into large and complex information systems, which entails that they have to be maintained and evolved in a sustainable manner. This maintenance imperative raises new challenges for information systems engineers due to the level of sophistication and the demanding infrastructure requirements that characterize these technologies.
The CAiSE conference will continue its tradition as the premiere venue for innovative and rigorous research across the whole spectrum of Information Systems Engineering, while placing a special emphasis on the theme of Information Systems in The Big Data Era. This year’s theme acknowledges the disruptions brought about by the abundance of Big Data sources on government and business services, their users and customers, as well as the environments in which they are generated. This data abundance creates new opportunities to develop smart and personalized information systems, but also raises new challenges for information systems engineers, for example in the areas of scalable data cleaning, integration and processing, and real-time and predictive data analytics.
Besides offering an exciting scientific program, CAiSE ’18 will feature a best paper award, a special issue, and a PhD-thesis award:
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 The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere.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.com/comp/lncs/authors.html. Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be listed at the end of the abstract.
Submission is done through CyberChair at the following page: http://cyberchairpro.borbala.net/caisepapers/submit/.
Each paper will be reviewed by at least two program committee members and, if positively evaluated, by one additional board committee member. The selected papers will be discussed among the paper reviewers on-line and additionally during the program board meeting in Amesterdam. Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE ’18 and published in the conference proceedings http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs (Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)).

We invite four types of original and scientific papers:
For all the submissions and depending on their type, we invite the authors to be explicit about the research method used.
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.
Contributions about methods, models, techniques, architectures and platforms for supporting the engineering and evolution of information systems and organizations in the digital connected world could include (but are not limited to):
