BPMDS 2013 - 14th International Workshop on Business Process Modeling, Development and Support

Date2013-06-17 - 2013-06-18


VenueValencia, Spain Spain



Topics/Call fo Papers

BPMDS solicits papers related to Business Process Modeling, Development and Support (BPMDS) in general, using quality as a main selection criterion. As a working conference, we would like to attract papers describing mature research, but we still give place to industrial reports and visionary idea papers. To encourage new and emerging challenges and research directions in the area of business process modeling, development and support, we have a unique focus theme every year. Papers submitted as idea papers will be required to be of relevance to the focus theme, thus providing a mass of new ideas around a relatively narrow but emerging research area. Full research papers and experience reports are not required to be directly connected to this theme (they still need to be explicitly relevant to BPMDS though). The focus theme for BPMDS'13 idea papers is
Coping with Complexity in Business Processes
Today, business processes have to cope with increasing complexity in several areas. First, business processes are increasingly becoming cross and inter organizational. External processes and services have to be integrated into processes. Second, data is becoming more and more important for business processes. Recent advances such as data science and big data provide huge amounts of information to be processed in business processes. Third, business processes are executed in complex environments, which may consist of cloud-services and resources and may introduce flexibility requirements.
We invite the visionaries (from research and industry) to exploit this theme and submit idea papers that deal with specific complexity aspects of business processes, such as data orientation as in MDM (master data management) and relation to big data, need for context-awareness and flexibility, and integration of business processes with social media.
We also welcome research papers that include ideas on how theoretical results discussed can be used in practice, as well as experience reports on using theories in practice. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Business Process Modeling
