26th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering 16-20 June 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece

Information Systems Engineering in Times of Crisis

 Real-time information systems and overly complex financial products have been blamed as causes of recent financial crises. The IS Engineering community is treating such phenomena as challenges, to be addressed through research and improved practices. In particular, our community has begun to address the role of information systems in predicting, preventing, and reacting to crises of many different kinds: data-centric financial and fiscal dependency analysis of the globalized financial systems, resilience of critical infrastructures by information management, reaction to natural disasters such as fires, floods, earthquakes, etc. Due to the very nature of crises as unexpected events with broad and vast impact, IS Engineering challenges traditional wisdom and methodologies, as well as interactions between research and practice – including stakeholders such as crisis victims.

CAiSE ‘14 will act as a forum of discussion that brings together researchers and practitioners in the field of IS Engineering. It will be the place to share mature research, ground-breaking ideas, and experience reports in this discipline.
