Workshop on Social Business Process Management (SBM 2013)

In conjunction with the 15th IEEE Conference on Business Informatics (CBI 2013)

July 15, 2013 Vienna, Austria


Modeling languages and methods that are suitable for designing and specifying
real-world business processes thoroughly and with a high degree of quality have
been proposed in a high variety during the past 20 years, with some of them
being more successful than others, and several being the foundation of an
interactive tool for business process modeling (BPM). Experience has shown
that the benefit of a business process model is greatest when it reflects the
knowledge and creativity of all involved stakeholders, whether they are
internal employees of an enterprise, employees of partner enterprises, or
generally people whose knowledge can directly or indirectly contribute to the
design of the business process under consideration. Social BPM (SBM) reflects
this recognition and is based on the perception that business process
management is not the task of an individual or a selected group, but is a
responsibility of the whole enterprise, and all involved business partners, and
possibly external knowledge carriers. BPM itself thus becomes a collaborative
process, and its quality depends largely upon the quality of collaboration, in
terms of work efficiency and quality of results. In addition to the social
components, the communication possibilities within the business community play
a key role. In a sense, SBM is a consequence and exploitation of the
communication and collaboration possibilities that have been brought along with
the Web 2.0 developments of the past 10 years.


The primary goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners who are interested in SBM as a paradigm, or who can contribute
experience and cases of its applications. It will address the motivational,
organizational, business and technical issues associated with the adoption of
SBM practices in the enterprise. To this end, the SBM workshop calls for
contributions that address fundamental research, system issues, empirical
evaluation, and industrial experiences in social business process modeling and
management, including, but not limited to, the following topics:

- Application areas for social BPM
- SBM success stories
- Design approaches for socially-enabled processes
- Infrastructure requirements for SBM
- Leveraging social networking in SBM
- Crowdsourcing business process modeling
- Handling of collaborative design transactions
- Roles and skills required to implement socially-enabled processes
- Management of a design community
- Success and value measurement for socially-enabled processes
- SBM in the Cloud
- Tools for SBM


Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not
being considered in another workshop. Manuscripts will be limited to 8
(IEEE style) pages. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings
Author Guidelines to prepare your papers with 8.5? x 11?, two-column format.
Pre-submission of abstracts is optionally provided for authors one week before
the paper submission deadline. At least one author is required to attend the
conference and present the paper. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF)
is required. All papers selected for this workshop are peer-reviewed and will
be published in the regular conference proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society

Important Dates

Submission of papers: March 1st, 2013
Notification of acceptance: April 30th, 2013
Camera-ready: May 15th, 2013
Workshop: July 15th, 2013


Participation in the workshop requires a registration for the 15th IEEE
Conference on Business Informatics (CBI 2013). More information can be found at
the conference website ( Presentations will
be held on the first half of July 15th, with the other half of the day being
devoted to a Social BPM Lab. Enrollment for the BPM Lab will be performed as
part of the conference registration.

Social BPM Lab

The basic idea of the Social BPM Lab is that the members of a business
community collaborate in a Web 2.0-based social network, to define business
objectives, strategies and business processes together or even just to find a
common understanding of the organization. Participants perceive the Lab as a
unique experience in which they accomplish tasks together as a team, take on
responsibility and contribute new ideas. Group dynamic processes empirically
provide for quite some surprising results that will help overcome barriers,
finding compromises and strengthen the sense of community. The Lab acts as a
catalyst for creativity and willingness to compromise and helps to form a
common understanding of processes and organizational structures.
