Advanced Information Systems Engineering

May 27 - 31, 2002, 
Toronto, Ontario, Canada



CAiSE'02 is now over. Many thanks to the sponsors, invited speakers, organizers, programme committee members and people who helped us to organize the conference.


Most of all, we thank the 230 participants that make the conference and its associated events a success and hope to see you at CAiSE'03 in Velden, Austria.


We also hope to see you back in Toronto, this time, for the 30th VLDB conference in 2004.

Conference Aims and Themes

Since the late 1980's, the CAiSE conferences have provided a forum for presentation and exchange of research results and practical experiences within the field of Information  Systems Engineering. CAiSE'02 will be held for the first time outside Europe, in the cosmopolitan city of Toronto. Toronto has been called the most multicultural city in the world, hosting more than 50,000 new immigrants per year, and boasting more than 100 languages spoken by some of its citizens. As in previous years, the conference programme will feature invited talks, technical paper presentations, workshops, tutorials and panel discussions.


Web-based systems have become the status quo in information systems engineering practice in a very short time. This change poses significant challenges to the research community, such as faster time-to-market, increased concerns for security and performance, open and evolving software architectures and more. The main theme of the CAiSE'02 conference will be "Web-Based Information Systems" and the conference programme will address both technologies and methodologies for building them.
