                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                            CAiSE Workshop
        Ubiquitous Mobile Information and Collaboration Systems
                             (UMICS 2005)

                            13-14 June 2005
                            Porto, Portugal


Important Dates

Paper submission:               7 March 2005
Notification of acceptance:     4 April 2005
Camera-ready copy of papers:   14 April 2005

Workshop Aims

The anywhere/any time/any means paradigm is becoming the challenge
in conceiving, designing, and releasing next generation information
systems. Ubiquity is not yet another buzzword pushed by emerging
technologies, but is mainly a means to support new business models
and encourage new ways of work. This creates a need for a software
infrastructure that enables ubiquitous mobile information and
collaboration systems (UMICS). This new wave of UMICS will exploit
the knowledge developed and deployed for conventional information
systems, but will also need new concepts, models, methodologies,
and supporting technologies to fully exploit the potentials of the
enabling infrastructure and be ready for the challenge. The
approaches and technologies for supporting these new ways of work
are still the subject of research. Nevertheless, they are likely to
"borrow" concepts and technologies from a variety of fields, such as
work-flow systems, groupware and CSCW, event-based systems, software
architecture, distributed database systems, mobile computing,
ubiquitous information systems, and so on.

UMICS intends to bring together researchers and practitioners to
discuss the key issues, approaches, open problems, innovative
applications, and trends in this research area.

Programme Chairs

Moira Norrie, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
Schahram Dustdar, Vienna University of Technology, Austria

Call for Papers

We are seeking position papers, high quality technical papers, and
experience reports. Areas of particular interest for the workshop
include (but are not limited to):

- Software Engineering for UMICS
- Adaptability and Personalization of UMICS
- Security and integrity issues for UMICS
- Architectures and Interoperability issues for UMICS
- Peer-to-peer services and architectures for UMICS
- Middleware for UMICS
- HCI design for UMICS
- Multimedia applications for UMICS
- Mobile collaboration systems
- Process- and context awareness for UMICS
- Interaction patterns for UMICS
- Conceptual Models for UMICS
- Coordination models and systems for UMICS
- Transaction models for UMICS
- Distributed resource management and Information distribution
- Methodologies and techniques for web service composition
- Standards and design principles for web service flows (e.g. BPEL4WS,
  WSFL, XLANG, ebXML, etc.)
- A specific session of the workshop will be dedicated to tool
  demonstrations of prototype tools of some of the accepted papers.


Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format using the
springer LNCS style to [log in to unmask] no later than 7 March 2005.
Papers should not exceed 15 pages.

Authors will be notified as to whether their paper has been accepted
by 4 April 2005.

Accepted papers will be published in the Proceedings of the CAiSE
workshops and camera-ready copies will be required by 14 April 2005.
