Call for Papers
BMSD 2017 - Seventh International Symposium on
Business Modeling and Software Design
3-5 July 2017, Barcelona, Spain

BMSD - the International Symposium on Business Modeling and Software Design, is a leading international discussion and knowledge dissemination forum that brings together Researchers and Practitioners interested in: (i) Modeling in general and in particular - Conceptual Modeling, Goal Modeling, Value Modeling, Business/Enterprise Modeling, Process Modeling, Model-Driven Engineering; (ii) Enterprise Engineering and its relation to Software Generation; (iii) Information Systems Architectures and Design. Each year, a special theme is chosen, for making presentations and discussions more focused. The theme of BMSD 2017 is:

Adequate business models are of huge importance not only for understanding and (re-)engineering an organization but also for automating (part of) its processes by means of software systems. Not grasping correctly and exhaustively a business system would inevitably lead to consequent software failures. It is therefore claimed that software generation should essentially have its roots in corresponding enterprise engineering models.
In 2017, BMSD will be held in Barcelona, Spain, following previous events in Greece (Rhodes, 2016), Italy (Milan, 2015), the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Luxembourg, 2014), The Netherlands (Noordwijkerhout, 2013), Switzerland (Geneva, 2012), and Bulgaria (Sofia, 2011).

 (list not yet complete)

- All BMSD proceedings are available through the website of the symposium:

- All BMSD proceedings are also available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library:

- All BMSD proceedings are indexed by SCOPUS (by now, they have processed BMSD'11, BMSD'12, BMSD'13, and BMSD'14, and they will very soon process BMSD'15 and BMSD'16)

- We have been submitting the BMSD proceedings for indexation at DBLP as well and we expect to see soon all BMSD proceedings indexed at DBLP.

- The Authors of around 10 BMSD papers are invited each year to submit revised and extended versions of their papers to Springer (in a LNBIP series book) and this certainly has full visibility:
