Call For Papers

BPMDS solicits papers related to Business Process Modeling, Development and Support (BPMDS) in general, using quality as a main selection criterion. As a working conference, we would like to attract papers

describing mature research, but we still give place to industrial reports and visionary idea papers. To encourage new and emerging challenges and research directions in the area of business process modeling, development and

support, we have a unique focus theme every year. Papers submitted as idea papers will be required to be of relevance to the focus theme, thus providing a mass of new ideas around a relatively narrow but emerging research area.

Full research papers and experience reports are not required to be directly connected to this theme (they still need to be explicitly relevant to BPMDS though).

The focus theme for BPMDS'15 idea papers is:

Enabling value creation via business process modeling, development and support

I will be grateful to you for advertising BPMDS'2015 and inviting your colleagues and/or research students to submit their work.

Important dates
Submission deadline: February 18th 2015
Notification of acceptance: March 15th 2015
Camera-ready papers due: March 30th 2015

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Value Creation and BPMDS
- Do projects of business process modeling or development help to create value directly or indirectly?
- How can value created by BPMDS be assessed and captured?
- Does a BPS (business process support) system always lead to value creation/capturing (directly or indirectly)?
- What are the relationships between various types of BPS systems (SoS vs WFMS for instance) and types of value they help to create?
- Does social software facilitate the creation of a different kind of value than a traditional workflow system?
- What are the barriers to value creation or/and capture from BP-related projects?
- Are there specific conditions for value creation from BP-related projects?
- Cases where BP-related projects created value
- Cases where BP-projects created no values
- Interactions between Value Creation and BPMDS
- Impact of Value Creation / Co-Creation on Business Process Life-Cycle: Design, Deployment, Operation and Evaluation.
- Representing requirements of Value Creation
- Value management in business processes
- User integration for value co-creation

Business Process Modeling

- BPMDS in the cloud

Prospective conference participants are invited to submit a paper that concerns business process modeling and development, and/or business process support (development of software dedicated to business processes). We solicit the

papers (both research papers and experience reports) that contain results worth of discussion. For full research papers, it means that reported research should be in an advance stage and a paper includes results and at least

partial evaluation. Thus three kinds of submissions are possible:
(1) Full research papers.
(2) Experience reports, which should follow guidelines in
(3) Idea papers related to the focus theme, devoted to completely new research positions or approaches, in order to face to a generic situation that arises because of, for instance, new methods and tools or new types of emerging

challenges; the compliance to the focus theme is mandatory for idea papers, which should describe precisely the situation and demonstrate the shortcomings of current methods, tools, ways of reasoning, meta-models, etc.
Papers of all submission types should be of up to 15 pages. Please follow the LNCS format instructions at for all of them.
Papers should be submitted in Adobe PDF format. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. The papers should be submitted through the conference management system available at
The conference proceedings will be published in a Springer LNBIP volume (joint with EMMSAD), "Enterprise, Business-Process and Information Systems Modeling”, as the five previous years (LNBIP 29, LNBIP 50, LNBIP 81, LNBIP 113,

LNBIP 147 LNBIP 175). Contributing authors may find all relevant information at .

After the BPMDS’15 conference, extended versions of the accepted papers will be considered for publishing in a special issue of an international journal.
The previous special issues are: BPMDS'14 in SoSyM in progress, BPMDS'13 in SoSyM in progress, BPMDS'12 in SoSyM June 2014, BPMDS’11 in IJISMD, vol. 4, issue 2, 2013 - BPMDS’10 selected paper in REJ, vol. 17, issue 2, 2012 -

BPMDS’09 in IJISMD, vol. 2, issue 2, 2011 - BPMDS’08 in JSME vol. 24, issue 3, 2012 - BPMDS'07 in IJBPIM, vol. 4, issue 2, 2009 - BPMDS'06 in IJBPIM, vol. 3, issue 1, 2008 - BPMDS'05 in SPIP, vol. 12, issue 1, 2007 - BPMDS'04 in

SPIP vol. 10, issue 4, 2005 & REJ vol. 10, issue 3, 2005, BPMDS'02 in BPMJ, vol. 11, issue 6, 2005.
