Call for Papers
CAiSE Doctoral Consortium 2008
17th June 2008, Montpellier, France (held in conjunction with CAiSE08)
First Call for Papers
The CAiSE Doctoral Consortium 2008 is an international forum for PhD
students working in the areas addressed by the CAiSE conference. The
forum is intended to bring together PhD students and give them the
opportunity to present and discuss their research in a constructively
critical atmosphere. The consortium will operate in a workshop format,
giving PhD students an opportunity to showcase their research and
providing them with feedback from senior international researchers. We
particularly encourage students that are somewhere in the middle of
their research to submit to this workshop.
The goals of the Doctoral Consortium event are
- To provide fruitful feedback and advice to the selected Ph.D. students
on their research thesis.
- To provide the opportunity to meet experts from different backgrounds
working on topics related to the Information Systems Engineering field.
- To interact with other PhD students and stimulate an exchange of ideas
and suggestions among participants.
The CAiSE Doctoral Consortium 2008 will be attended by prominent
researchers in the field of information systems who will actively
participate in and contribute to the discussions. The workshop in
Montpellier will be the 15th Doctoral Consortium of a series held in
conjunction with the CAiSE conferences in Utrecht (1994), Jyväskylä
(1995), Heraklion (1996), Barcelona (1997), Pisa (1998), Heidelberg
(1999), Stockholm (2000), Interlaken (2001), Toronto (2002),
Klagenfurt/Velden (2003) Riga/Latvia (2004), Porto (2005), Luxembourg
(2006) and Trondheim (2007).
The submitted paper must give a clear description of the PhD work being
conducted by author of the paper, and in particular:
- provide a clear description of the research problem being addressed.
- motivate the proposed research (ie state why the research work is
being conducted, and what benefits the research will bring).
- outline the current knowledge of the problem domain, briefly describe
what existing work the research builds upon (citing key papers), and
also briefly describe any existing solutions that have been developed or
are currently being developed (citing key papers).
- present clearly preliminary results from the research work, and
propose a plan of research to complete the research.
- point out the contributions of the applicant to the solution of the
problem, and state in what aspects the suggested solution is different,
new or better as compared to existing approaches to the problem.
However, the paper need not be structured to answer those questions
directly, but may instead follow the format of a standard conference
paper. Submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee with
respect to overall quality of presentation, the potential for future
impact of the proposed PhD research on the field of Information Systems
Engineering, and the likely benefit to the student of attending the
