Guidelines for future CAiSE-conferences
Revised January, 1997. The initial guidelines were proposed by Arne Solvberg
and Janis Bubenko jr in 1990.
The name of the conferences shall be CAiSE'nn - The Conference on Advanced
Information Systems Engineering where nn are the two last digits the year
when the conference is arranged.
The conferences shall normally take place during the spring time, preferrably
April-June. Arrangement of tutorials, special workshops, and doctoral consortia
in connection with the conference is encouraged.
It is, however, recommended to see workshop registration as part of registering
for the conference itself.
The printing of conference material shall be with red or black letters
on a yellowish background. Ordinary text shall be printed in black. If
possible, the dot over the "i" in the redlettered CAiSE logo should be
a cube with one red, one white and one blue side.
Proceedings should be published with Springers, so that a procedings series
is gradually built up. The ISBN-numbers of the last 5 proceedings shall
be published in the call for papers. The ISBN numbers of all previous conferences
shall be published in each conference proceeding.
An address archive for the CAiSE conferences shall be built up. Implementation
to be decided.
The core CAiSE-arrangement group, called "The
CAiSE Committee", is intended to continue to be an informal group of
former and future CAiSE arrangers. The CAiSE Committee meets at each CAiSE
conference. The agenda includes items reporting on the current conference
and decisions regarding future conferences.
There will be no organization that will possess any money: "Thou shall
not collect treasures on earth" Consequently:
* There will be no seed money provided for future arrangers.
* Every arranger is economically responsible for their own arrangement
* Every arranger may keep the proceeds that they make on the conference
* But - the attendance fee shall not be greater than what at any time
is usual for comparable scientific conferences.
* And - the organising site must make every effort to make accommodation
costs as low as possible
The conference should be firmly anchored in Europe before any arrangements
in non-European venues are undertaken.
The involvement of non-Europeans in the program committee is recommended
The conference should be arranged in some Nordic country now and then.
The CAiSE committee
consists at year x of all key persons (typically 2 per conference) arranging
a CAiSE conference in years up to x+2.
