The CAiSE Forum serves as a staging ground for novel and inspiring ideas as well as a platform to tangibly demonstrate research results. Therefore, the CAiSE Forum invites short papers and proposals for demonstrations of results (tools, methods, techniques, etc). Depending on the submissions selected for presentation/demonstration, the forum's chairs will compose a compelling and interactive programme involving in-depth discussion of papers presenting novel research ideas/concepts, posters providing overviews of preliminary research activities, and demonstrations of results.

The CAiSE Forum welcomes all submissions that fall in the domain of information systems engineering and the CAiSE conference topics



March 15th, Forum Submission Deadline

April 15th, Notification of acceptance

May 1st, Forum Camera-Ready papers



Types of contributions: We invite three types of submissions:

  1. Visionary short papers: papers that present innovative research projects, which are still at a relatively early stage and do not necessarily include a full-scale validation. We specially encourage submissions by starting PhD students.
  2. Demo papers: short papers describing innovative tools and prototypes that implement the results of research efforts. The tools and prototypes will be presented as demos in the Forum.
  3. Case studies reports:  Reports on real world cases, using the STARR (Situation, Task, Approach, Results, Reflection) template.

Submission Conditions: Forum papers should be submitted in PDF format. They must not exceed 8 pages in LNCS format (see for further details). The submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submission should be made through the conference management system available at the SUBMISSION WEBSITE

Publication: The accepted papers will be included in the special proceedings issue titled "CAiSE Forum", which will be formally published by CEUR (

Presentation: Depending on the discussion potential of the accepted submissions, three to four will be programmed in a special Poster Conference Session, which will run as a parallel track to the main conference. In this special track, the authors will have the opportunity to present their work in a twenty-minute presentation, followed by a twenty-minute discussion. The other accepted papers/demos will be presented as posters/demonstrations in the usual Forum session.
