Guidelines for future CAiSE-conferences

Revised January, 1997. The initial guidelines were proposed by Arne Solvberg and Janis Bubenko jr in 1990.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. It is, however, recommended to see workshop registration as part of registering for the conference itself.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. An address archive for the CAiSE conferences shall be built up. Implementation to be decided.
  7. 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.
  8. There will be no organization that will possess any money: "Thou shall not collect treasures on earth" Consequently:

  9. * 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
  10. The conference should be firmly anchored in Europe before any arrangements in non-European venues are undertaken.
  11. The involvement of non-Europeans in the program committee is recommended
  12. The conference should be arranged in some Nordic country now and then.
  13. Note:

    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.
