CFP: HCIS - 2nd International Workshop on Human-Centric Information Systems

HCIS - 2nd International Workshop on Human-Centric Information Systems

in conjunction with the 25th International Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE'13), Valencia, Spain, 17-21 June 2013 

HCIS Link:
The HCIS workshop is focused on human orientation and human factors in the context of Information Systems (IS) research. The workshop aims to support investigations and novel solutions for human integration into IS, and interaction of humans with IS in general. In continuing the successful series of the HC-PAIS workshop series, the HCIS 2013 workshop will also provide a platform for discussing research on human orientation in different types of IS, such as Process-Aware Information Systems (PAIS), Business Process Management Suites (BPMS) and Workflow Systems (WfS). The workshop aims to offer a portal for researchers, discussions, and contributions of interdisciplinary research dedicated to the investigation of particularly human-centric activities and processes that demand human judgment, human skills and competencies, human experiences, and discernment. The HCIS workshop appreciates diversity in the chosen research methodology (reaching from e.g. empirical research to action research, and design science research), and welcomes technical, empirical, experiential, and exploratory contributions.  


Workshop topics

Contributions to further human factors in alliance with IS in general, or specific IS such as PAIS, BPMS, WfS are welcome.
  • Human orientation and human factors in IS 
  • Human resource modeling in IS 
  • Human-centric functionalities and services in IS 
  • Motivation, satisfaction and performance of humans working with IS 
  • Work life quality of humans working with IS 
  • Creativity in IS  
  • Teams, groups, and social collaborative processes in IS 
  • Role conflicts, role motivation, compliance behavior in IS 
  • Visualization, personalized visualization and representation  
  • Context-integration, customization in IS 
  • Security and Privacy in human-centric IS 
  • (Organizational) Culture, gender, and diversity in IS 
  • Process innovation and process adaptation for human-centric IS 
  • Cognitive theory reflection in IS  
  • User properties in the context of process modeling and IS 
  • User-centric automatisms and feedback loops in IS

CFP: 9th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'13)


9th International Symposium on Visual Computing (ISVC'13)
July 29-31, 2013
Aquila Rithymna Beach Hotel
Rethymnon, Crete, Greece

ISVC provides a common forum for researchers, scientists, engineers and
practitioners to present their latest research findings, ideas, developments
and applications in visual computing. We seek papers contributing to the state
of the art and practice in the four central areas of visual computing: (1)
computer vision, (2) computer graphics, (3) virtual reality, and (4)
visualization.  Of particular interest are papers that combine technologies
from two or more areas. For a list of topics, see

ISVC'13 will consist of invited and contributed presentations dealing with all
aspects of visual computing. In addition to the main program, the symposium
will include several keynote presentations, special tracks, and a poster
session. A selection of best papers will be published in a special issue of the
International Journal on Artificial Intelligence Tools (IJAIT) (ISI/SCIE
indexed) and the Computers and Graphics journal(ISI/SCIE indexed). Also, a
"best paper" award ($500) is sponsored by Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs
(MERL). The symposium's proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in
Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

Submission Procedure

Papers submitted to ISVC'13 must not have been previously published and must
not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. A complete
paper should be submitted in camera-ready format. The length should match that
intended for final publication. The page limit is 12 pages. In submitting a
paper the author(s) agree that, upon acceptance, they will prepare the final
manuscript in time for inclusion into the proceedings and will present the
paper at the symposium.

Special Tracks

Proposals are invited for special tracks on any topic relevant to the
symposium. Special tracks are intended to stimulate in-depth discussions in
special areas relevant to the symposium theme. A special track may span
multiple sessions, depending on the quantity and quality of the papers
submitted. All papers accepted in a special track will be published in the
symposium proceedings. If you are interested in organizing a special track,
please email a special track proposal to by February 1, 2013.
Each special track proposal should include the following information:

1. Title
2. Scope and Topics
3. Names of organizers and contact information
4. Initial special track committee
5. Anticipated number of papers
