                   Final CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

                               CAiSE*94

   The 6th Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering

  Date: 6-10 June 1994          Location: Utrecht, The Netherlands

                            ORGANISATION:
    Software Engineering Research Centre and University of Twente

CONFERENCE AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
==============================
The CAiSE*94 conference is already the sixth conference in the CAiSE
series of conferences. The CAiSE series of conferences provides a
forum for presentation and exchange of research results and
practical experiences within the Information Systems Engineering
(ISE) field.

The ISE field may be characterised by the two terms of information
systems and engineering. Information Systems implies that computer
based systems are designed to provide adequate and timely
information to human users in organisations. Engineering implies the
application of a rigourous set of problem solving approaches
analogous to those found in traditional engineering disciplines.

The CAiSE*94 conference in particular aims at bringing together
researchers and practitioners in the ISE area. It will not only
offer a three days scientific programme with state of the art paper
presentations combined with highly interactive panel sessions, but
also a specific industrial programme containing tutorials and
technical presentations on innovative products (both scientific and
commercial). To increase interaction between researchers and
practitioners the official conference programme will be preceded by
a two days programme of workshops. The conference will be completed
with a commercial exhibition for ISE product suppliers and
scientific poster sessions and demonstrations.

CONFERENCE TOPICS
=================
The topics addressed in the CAiSE*94 conference include, but are not
limited to the following:

CASE
Dynamic modelling
Groupware design
Information management and planning
Knowledge acquisition
Maintenance and reverse engineering
Meta-CASE
Method engineering
Multi-media information systems
Object oriented analysis and design

STRUCTURE OF THE CONFERENCE
=======================
The CAiSE*94 conference will be held in Utrecht, The Netherlands,
famous for its nice atmosphere and its beautiful canals. The
conference takes place from 6 to 10 June 1994; the first two days (6
and 7 June) being reserved for workshops. The conference itself
starts on the Wednesday 8 June with both a scientific and industrial
track in parallel.

The academic track consists of paper presentations in parallel and a
number of panel discussions. Two invited speakers have been planned
for. The academic activities have been enlarged with a possibility
to have poster sessions and demonstrations.

The industrial track contains both tutorials and product
presentations. Products can be methods as well as tools, handbooks,
etc. The industrial track also includes an exhibition.

The conference is sponsored by the Netherlands Research School in
Information and Knowledge Systems.
