The ME07 electronic
submission system is now opened.
The Program Committee solicits original contributions in four categories:
Research papers (max 15 pages). Research papers should describe original research
contribution to the field of Method Engineering (ME). A research paper should
clearly describe the problem tackled, the state of the art with respect to
the problem, the solution suggested and the potential - or even better the
evaluated - benefits of the contribution.
Practice reports (max 15 pages) including case studies, experience
reports and problem statements in the domain of Method Engineering. People from
industry are especially encouraged to submit problem statements and experience
reports, which may address mismatches between current ME practice and research
and/or emerging areas of concern for method /ME practitioners.
Position papers (max 6 pages) should state the author’s research position
with respect to current Method Engineering practice, relations between current
ME practice and ME research, and/or research methodology and ontological assumptions.
Papers should emphasise topics that are particularly important within ME at
Posters and tool demonstrations (max 4 pages) should present results of innovative
projects and prototypes as well as promising new approaches as short papers.
All submissions should follow the Springer IFIP series format (see http://www.springer.com/series/6102
for instructions). Authors are requested to submit their manuscripts electronically
in PDF format using the
paper submission tool. All contributions will be reviewed and evaluated
based on originality, technical quality and relevance to the conference theme.
The accepted contributions will be included in the proceedings published by
the IFIP publisher Springer. Furthermore, the organizers are making arrangements
with two journals for a special section on Situational Method Engineering, where
the best papers will be nominated to be submitted as extended versions.
The Program Committee also welcomes Tutorials proposals. Tutorials should provide
both postgraduate students and general interested audience the basic theories
and recent research work in the field of Method Engineering, so that the audience
has the opportunity to gain deeper insight into the variety of applications
in the domain and the related challenges.
