CAiSE 2018 Call for Tutorials

30th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

June 11-15 2018, Tallinn, Estonia

CAiSE’18 invites proposals for tutorials in challenging issues on Information Systems engineering. These tutorials will be 90 minutes long and should aim at offering new insights, knowledge, and skills to managers, teachers, researchers, and students seeking to gain a better understanding of the state-of-the-art in Information Systems engineering. They are a good way to get a broad overview of a topic beyond a current paper presentation. The proposals emphasizing on the CAISE’18 theme ‘Information Systems in The Big Data Era’ and highlighting the links and/or the impacts of the new challenges with/on the fundamentals of Information Systems Engineering are particularly encouraged.

Tutorials are intended to provide unbiased instruction on a topic of relevance to the conference. Therefore, no commercial or sales-oriented presentations will be accepted. Potential presenters should keep in mind that there may be quite a varied audience, including novice graduate students, seasoned practitioners, and specialized researchers. Tutorial speakers should be prepared to cope with this diversity. Tutorials will be organized in parallel with the technical sessions of the main conference and participants of the conference will have free access to all them.

Tutorial proposals should be sent by email to Prior contact with the tutorial chairs (using the same email address) is encouraged. Each tutorial proposal will be evaluated on its anticipated benefit for prospective participants and its fit within the tutorial program as a whole. Other factors to be considered include: relevance to practice and to research, timeliness, importance, and audience appeal; effectiveness of teaching methods; and past experience and qualifications of the instructors.
