BPM Demos & Resources 2020 : Demos & Resources track of the 18th Int. Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2020)
Call For Papers
Call for Demos & Resources
18TH INT. CONFERENCE ON BUSINESS PROCESS MANAGEMENT (BPM 2020)
Seville, Spain, September 13 - 18, 2020
Information about COVID-19 from BPM 2020
Due to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that BPM 2020 will be a fully virtual conference. This means that the entire program, including the research track, workshops, forums, demos, tutorials, panel and doctoral consortium will take place online. Other conference organisation details are available at https://congreso.us.es/bpm2020.
The BPM 2020 Demo & Resources Track is intended to showcase innovative Business Process Management (BPM) tools, services and applications, as well as resources like datasets, taxonomies, labelled event logs and annotated corpora alike, quantitative/qualitative data and benchmarks, that may originate either from academic initiatives or industry endeavours. The Demo & Resources Track will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging technologies and relevant knowledge sources with researchers and practitioners in the BPM field.
For the inclusion in the proceedings, tools and resources will be evaluated on the basis of relevance to the BPM community as well as on novelty and innovativeness. Previously demonstrated tools or exposed resources are also welcome if there is clear evidence of the value added to the previous version, such as new features, characteristics and/or the adaptation and use for new practical applications. The tools will also be evaluated based on their maturity, complexity and robustness, such as the list of features, supported use cases, number and types of users. The resources will also be evaluated based on their availability, reusability and richness, e.g., appropriate description (machine- or human-readable), replicability and generality of the studies that can be conducted using them.
Tools need to be available for testing. If the tool requires a license, this needs to be provided to the reviewers, at least limited to the reviewing period. Resources have to be publicly and permanently available. The procedure to get access to the tools or resources must not disclose the identity of reviewers.
Tool and resource submissions need to be accompanied by a paper, which must adhere to Springer’s LNBIP submission formatting guidelines (for instructions and style sheets see https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). The maximum length of the paper is 5 pages.
The paper should contain at least the following parts:
- Title, authors and affiliations;
- An abstract;
- An introduction section, which, among others, should highlight the significance of the tool or resource to the BPM field;
- A section discussing the innovations of the tool or resource to the BPM community and its main characteristics or features;
For tool demonstrations:
- A section describing the maturity of the tool. For this section, one could provide a brief description of case studies performed using the tool, provide scalability data or pointers indicating where readers can find more information about these case studies;
- A link to a video that screencasts and demonstrates the tool, preferably including voice, which must not be longer than 4 minutes;
- A separate tutorial document that focuses on one specific use case of the tool which is presented in a step-by-step approach (e.g., mine a Petri net from an event log, simulate a model, verify a set of business constraints, etc.). Note: This separate document does not count for the 5-page limit.
- A link to a Web page where to download or use the tool. If the tool requires a license, a paper’s appendix should describe how to obtain a (temporary) license. The procedure to obtain the license must not disclose the identity of the reviewers. The appendix will not be included in the final version for the proceedings, if the demo is accepted.
For resource expositions:
- A section describing the data model and schema of the resource. The reader should understand from this section how to interpret and gather information from the exposed resource;
- A section describing a preliminary analysis conducted on, or with the aid of, the resource. For this section, it is necessary that the procedure to obtain the results is clearly linked to the exposed resource;
- A separate document that explains step-by-step how to download, load and use the resource, focussing on a specific use case. Note: This separate document does not count for the 5-page limit.
- A publicly accessible and persistently available link (e.g., Figshare, Zenodo, GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket) to download and cite the resource. The website must not require a registration procedure that unveils the identity of reviewers. Also, it has to contain:
- - Download, loading and usage instructions, and
- - License specification.
Submission and Review Process
Demo and resource papers should be submitted through the BPM 2020 submission system hosted by EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpm2020. The submission system is shared with the main conference. Once logged in, authors should select the Demo & Resource Track as the option to submit.
All demo and resource submissions will be reviewed by the demo & resource reviewing committee. The reviewing committee will also vote on the best contribution to be granted the “BPM 2020 Best Demo and Resources Award”. The best contribution will be selected based on the quality of both the material submitted, e.g., the demonstration video, and the presentation during the conference.
Accepted demo and resource papers will be published as online CEUR proceedings. Also, it is foreseen that each accepted paper gets its own Web page, which will become part of the BPM 2020 Web page. Owing to this, the authors of accepted papers have to provide information about the demo or resource in a pre-defined format.
Each tool/application will be presented plenary using one or two-minute video teasers pre-recorded by the author(s) informing the audience about the available demos. The actual demonstrations will then be held online in a dedicated slot with all tools/applications being shown in parallel.
For each tool demonstration and resource exposition, the registration to the conference of at least one presenter is mandatory.
Paper submission: 22 June 2020 (extended!)
Notification: 6 July 2020
Camera-ready paper submission: 13 July 2020
Deadlines correspond to anywhere on earth (‘AoE’ or ‘UTC-12′)
