Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must conform to Springer's LNCS format and should not exceed 15 pages, including all text, figures, references and appendices. Submissions not conforming to the LNCS format, exceeding 15 pages, or being obviously out of the scope of the conference, will be rejected without review. Information about the Springer LNCS format can be found at http://www.springer.com/comp/lncs/authors.html. Three to five keywords characterizing the paper should be indicated at the end of the abstract. The type of paper (technical/empirical evaluation/experience/exploratory paper) should be indicated in the submission. Submission information will be provided soon at http://caise2017.paluno.de/.
Each paper will be reviewed by at least two program committee members and, if positively evaluated, by one additional board committee member. The selected papers will be discussed among the paper reviewers on-line and additionally during the program board meeting in Luxembourg. Accepted papers will be presented at CAiSE'17 and published in the conference proceedings, which is published in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

We invite four types of original and scientific papers:
Formal and/or technical papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or conceptual) in the field of IS engineering. A technical paper should clearly describe the situation or problem tackled, the relevant state of the art, the position or solution suggested and the potential - or, even better, the evaluated - benefits of the contribution.
Empirical evaluation papers evaluate existing problem situations or validate proposed solutions with scientific means, i.e. by empirical studies, experiments, case studies, simulations, formal analyses, mathematical proofs, etc. Scientific reflection on problems and practices in industry also falls into this category. The topic of the evaluation presented in the paper as well as its causal or logical properties must be clearly stated. The research method must be sound and appropriate.
Experience papers present problems or challenges encountered in practice, relate success and failure stories, or report on industrial practice. The focus is on "what" and on lessons learned, not on an in-depth analysis of "why". The practice must be clearly described and its context must be given. Readers should be able to draw conclusions for their own practice.
Exploratory papers can describe completely new research positions or approaches, in order to face a generic situation arising because of new ICT tools or new kinds of activities or new IS challenges. They must describe precisely the situation and demonstrate why current methods, tools, ways of reasoning, or meta-models are inadequate. They must rigorously present their approach and demonstrate its pertinence and correctness to addressing the identified situation.
For all the submissions and depending on their type, we invite the authors to be explicit about the research method used.
Contributions are welcome in terms of models, methods, techniques and technologies. Each contribution should explicitly address the engineering or the operation of information systems. Each contribution should clearly identify the information systems problem addressed and as well as the expected positive impact of the contribution to information system engineering or operation. We strongly advised to authors to clearly emphasize those aspects in their paper, including the abstract.
Contributions about methods, models, techniques, architectures and platforms for supporting the engineering and evolution of information systems and organizations in the digital connected world could include (but are not limited to):
