rBPM 2012 : 3rd International Workshop on Reuse in Business Process Management
Call For Papers
Aims and Scope: Academia and Industry
Current complexity of corporative world demands dynamic and flexible IT infrastructure to provide technical solutions for conducting business. Business Process Management (BPM) has been providing important technological support to improve organization competitiveness. In order to increase dynamism and competitiveness, BPM can benefit from reuse techniques and tools at several stages of business process life cycle.
The 3rd International Workshop on Reuse in Business Process Management will be dedicated to explore any type of reuse in the BPM domain, taking into account both the results of research in academia and the results of applications in industry.
It will be a forum to discuss systematic reuse applied to BPM at its various levels and different life cycle stages, including:
(1) basic service-oriented foundation level: including service development, description, publication, discovery, selection, negotiation, and aggregation;
(2) management and monitoring upper level: including business process modeling, execution, monitoring, administration, and optimization.
Moreover, the impact of reuse on business- and service-oriented engineering as well as analyzing how it can help in the design of higher quality process models are very important topics to be discussed.
Different existing reuse approaches and techniques can be extended to be applied to this fairly new domain, including: software product line or software product families; variability descriptors; design patterns such as feature modeling; aspect-orientation; and component-based development. In addition, completely novel approaches and techniques can be proposed. Their application must also be discussed, preferably under experimentation as well as results analysis.
Possible topics for the workshop papers are (but are not restricted to) - related to both research in academia or applications in industry:
- Product Lines (Product Families) for BPM
- Patterns for business process and workflows
- Variability descriptors applied in BPM elements
- Feature modeling applied in BPM elements
- Aspect-oriented extensions for BPM
- Component-based Development and Service and Business-oriented Engineering
- Reuse in Service-oriented Architecture (SOA)
- Reuse in service development, negotiation, composition
- Quality of Service (QoS) and Reuse
- Reuse in SaaS (Software as a Service) approaches
- Reusable asset libraries for BPM
- Reuse in semantic Web services
- Ontologies in business process modeling
- Empirical findings related to reuse in the BPM domain
- Surveys related to reuse in the BPM domain
- Reuse in business process modeling, execution, monitoring
- Reuse in electronic contract establishment
- Case studies and experiments results related to reuse in BPM

Papers should be submitted in English language, in PDF format and in the LNBIP (Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing) format. Instructions for authors are available at the Springer Web site (http://www.springer.com/series/7911).
Papers can be submitted into two tracks: "Research Paper" or "Application Paper". For both paper types, its size must range from 9 to 12 pages.
Papers submitted must contain, below title, the information: "Research Paper" or "Application Paper".
Papers have to present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere. All contributions will be evaluated based on originality, technical quality and relevance to the workshop themes.
All accepted workshop papers will appear in the LNBIP Proceedings of "BPM 2012 Workshops" published by Springer. As this volume will appear after the conference, hard copies of the proceedings will be shipped to all registered participants about four months after the workshops. Authors of accepted papers must register for the BPM 2012 conference.
Papers must be submitted to the EasyChair Web site (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=rbpm2012).
