BSME 2011 : International Workshop on Business Systems Management & Engineering
Call For Papers
Business Process Management (BPM) has emerged as both a management
principle and a suite of software technologies for business processes life-cycle management. Business goals and objectives are expressed in the definition of business processes, which are deployed, executed, monitored, analyzed, changed and redeployed. BPM brings value to an enterprise as the proactive management of business processes can increase the efficiency, agility and effectiveness of organizations.
With the move to software services and cloud-based deployments, the trend in
BPM will be to move from a relatively static to a much more dynamic perspective, where business process interactions are closely examined to understand much more accurately their operations. This brings requirements for more granular application monitoring and management techniques that can be applied to various entities in a business process, such as business data, events, operations and process fragments. Individual and aggregated QoS and KPIs can guarantee a continuous and cohesive information flow and correlation of end-to-end process properties.
The interface of software services and cloud computing provides a rich area
for research and experience to combine and provide unique insights into how BPM can be achieved in practice.
We invite the submission of high-quality papers describing original and significant work in all areas of Business Systems Management & Engineering, including theoretical work, research in BPM, empirical studies and reports on industrial experience. We especially welcome papers describing developments in cloud-enabled BPM and all related areas, such as deployment techniques, business models for cloud-based enterprises and experience reports from practitioners.
