BPMN 2012 – 4th International Workshop on the Business Process Model and Notation

12-13 September 2012, WU Vienna, Austria



The Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) standard experiences a huge uptake in both academia and industry. It is seen by many as the de-facto standard for business process modeling, analysis, and execution. Its promise of being one language for Business and IT has made it very popular with business analysts, tool vendors, practitioners, and end users. Dozens of standard implementations are listed on the OMG website.

After three successful workshops in Vienna, Austria, Potsdam, Germany, Lucerne, Switzerland, this fourth workshop brings together researchers and practitioners to discuss and present the latest developments around BPMN.


We invite researchers and practitioners to contribute to the workshop on practical and theoretical aspects of the BPMN standard, addressing or going beyond one of the following topics:

Analysis of BPMN models
* Consistency between BPMN collaboration, conversation, and choreography models
* Similarity of BPMN models
* Matching elements of different BPMN models
* Verification of BPMN models

BPMN as a modeling language
* Process modeling methodologies
* Modeling extensions and language profiles
* Integration with other modeling languages and language comparisons
* Quality of BPMN models and of BPMN as a notation

Practical experience with BPMN
* Success factors of business process management with BPMN
* Addressing the need of different stakeholder and specific industries in BPMN
* BPMN beyond modeling: process reengineering and optimization
* Bridging the Business-IT gap: Does BPMN deliver on its promise?

BPMN tool support
* Implementation and semantics of BPMN as an execution language
* Collaborative modeling
* Managing repositories of BPMN models
* Simulation based on BPMN models

BPMN for business analysis
* Usability and understanding of BPMN diagrams
* Process optimization
* Process monitoring and improvement
* BPMN and its relation to Enterprise Architecture

Empirical research on BPMN
* BPMN in specific industries and e-government
* User experience studies
* Quality aspects of BPMN tools (smart editors, simulators, runtimes, monitoring environments)

Future directions of BPMN


Paper submission deadline: 15 May 2012

Author notification: 15 June 2012

Camera-ready copy: 27 June 2012


We invite two types of contributions to the workshop: full scientific papers and short papers.

Full scientific papers must present unpublished work that is not being considered in another forum, but can present unfinished research. They should clearly establish their research contribution and relation to previous research. Authors are requested to prepare submissions in English of no more than 15 pages.

Short papers of no more than 6 pages can be submitted for inclusion in the paper proceedings. Short papers can be practical experience reports or tool demos.

All papers must be formatted in English following the Springer LNBIP instructions for authors available from Springer: Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF) is required via EasyChair: Submitted papers will be evaluated by an international program committee on the basis of their significance to the workshop topics, originality, and technical quality.

Papers selected for this workshop will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). At least one author is required to attend the workshop and present the paper. Presentations and demos will be listed with title and abstract in the workshop brochure. Presentations of the speakers selected for the workshop will be video-recorded and speeches will be available on the workshop webpage after the workshop depending on agreement of the speakers to the publication of their speeches.
