Call For Papers

BPM 2011 is the ninth conference in a series that provides the most distinguished research forum for researchers and practitioners in all aspects of BPM including theory, frameworks, methods, techniques, architectures, systems, and empirical findings. With an acceptance rate in previous editions at around 13% the conference has a record of attracting innovative research of highest quality, from a mix of disciplines including Computer Science, Management Information Science, Services Computing, Services Science, and Technology Management.

This year’s conference will continue with the broad-based themes of previous editions, and strives to strengthen and expand in several key directions . The conference encourages emerging research on new conceptual models for BPM that attempt to unify core aspects of BPM, including process management, data management, business rules and requirements, and analytics. The conference also encourages the increasing interest in applying established and new techniques, such as model-driven architectures, Web services and Web architectures, SOA, and Cloud Computing, to the specific challenges of BPM. In this context, the conference is also looking for contributions on implementation techniques and details for process or Web service execution engines with focus on new application areas. Finally, the conference seeks to attract papers that highlight the pervasive need for BPM capabilities across application areas outside of business management, including healthcare delivery, digital government, disaster management, and management of scientific and other academic endeavors, and that highlight how new techniques can solve the distinctive challenges arising in those diverse areas. Awards will be given to the best papers in different categories.

BPM 2011 will be held in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and will be organized by the LIMOS Laboratory (http://www.isima.fr/limos/), CNRS, Université Blaise Pascal. The conference will take place at the campus des cezeaux which is located about minutes from the city center. Clermont-Ferrand is a medium-sized city located in the heart of Auvergne, one of the most beautiful regions of France: ancient volcanoes, lakes and gorges, historic sites and Romanesque architecture make its wealth. Information about the venue and local area are provided on the conference website: http://bpm2011.isima.fr/ .

Conference Paper Submission

BPM 2011 invites research submissions on all topics related to business process management, including but not limited to those listed above. Research papers should be submitted electronically via the EasyChair system at 13 March 2011.
Initial submissions must be received no later than 6 March 2011 (including at least title and abstract). Final papers must be submitted by 13 March 2011. Submission details and formatting instructions are given at the website. All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in their LNCS series. For each accepted paper, at least one author is required to register for the conference and should plan to present the paper. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper to a special issue Information Systems (an Elsevier Science Journal).
Additional Conference Activities
The BPM 2011 conference will include a diverse set of tracks and activities in addition to the main research track. As with previous editions of the conference, there will be several associated workshops that explore newly emerging approaches, methods, and technologies in the BPM space. All or most of these workshops will be held on 29 August 2011. The Demo Track will showcase new, innovative systems that illustrate key BPM functionalities. The proceedings of the workshops, and short papers describing the demos, will be published in a volume of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). The Industrial Experiences track aims at bridging the viewpoints of leading research outcomes with practical demands and industrial experience; practitioners are encouraged to submit papers reporting on innovative industrial implementations and applications of BPM methods and techniques, with a particular emphasis on their impact on information technology use or business practice. The conference will include tutorials on cutting-edge frameworks and associated principled techniques for solving BPM challenges. There are plans for a Doctoral Consortium, that will provide students in advanced stages of their dissertation work an opportunity to share their research with peers, world-class researchers, and industry experts in Business Process Management. Finally, a summer school directly following the main conference is envisioned.
