BPM 2012 : Busines Process Management 2012
Conference Series : Business Process Management
Call For Papers
BPM 2012 will continue to foster research on the broad-based themes covered in earlier editions of the conference. Moreover, BPM 2012 encourages submissions in emerging fields of research and seeks to strengthen the relation to related research areas or fields of application. This includes research on conceptual models for unifying core aspects of BPM, including process management, data management, business rules and requirements, and analytics. The conference also encourages contributions that apply or combine established and new techniques, such as Model-Driven Architecture, Web engineering, Service-Oriented Architectures, and Cloud Computing, to the specific challenges of BPM.
In addition to a research track, BPM 2012 also features an industrial track. Industry practitioners are encouraged to submit experience and application papers reporting on innovative industrial implementations and applications of business process management methods and techniques, with a particular focus on their impact on current information technology or business practice. These papers should present industrial solutions (that go beyond mature prototypes or “potentially applicable” methodologies and techniques) and have to be based on industrial experiences or empirical data.
Awards will be given to the best papers in different categories. In addition, selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the journal of Information Systems published by Elsevier.
BPM 2012 will take place in Tallinn, Estonia. Tallinn is a progressive and dynamic city with a milenary history. Tallinn offers all the infrastructure and facilities of a global technology hub, combined with highly attractive tourism opportunities. The picturesque Tallinn Old Town, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, is a unique pearl of medieval architecture, considered as one of the most intact medieval city centres in the world.

Papers should be submitted electronically as a self-contained PDF file using the EasyChair submission site by the deadlines indicated below.
Papers must be in English. They must be original contributions that have not been published previously, nor already submitted to other conferences or journals in parallel with this conference. The length of the paper should not exceed 16 pages. Papers should be formatted in LNCS format (see formatting instructions and stylesheets). The title page must contain a short abstract and a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above. The paper must clearly state the problem being addressed, the goal of the work, the results achieved, and the relation to other work. Submissions received too late, in another format than PDF and submissions sent by fax will be immediately rejected. The same will happen with papers which are not in English or exceed the page limit.
Industrial papers must be clearly marked as such so that they can be appropriately reviewed by the program committee. Concerning length and formatting, industrial papers must follow the same rules and guidelines as research papers.
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the conference and plan to present the paper. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a paper for a special issue of Information Systems (Elsevier).
