SPBP'20: The Third Workshop on Security and Privacy-enhanced Business Process Management

In conjunction with the 18th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2020)



Despite the growing demand for business processes that comply with security and privacy policies, security and privacy incidents caused by erroneous workflow specifications are regrettably common. This is, in part, because business process management, security and privacy are seldom addressed together, thereby hindering the development of trustworthy, privacy and security-compliant business processes.

The central theme of the workshop is the interplay between business process management (BPM), security, and privacy management. The goal is to establish a venue to discuss business process privacy and integrity management, for instance by using the new and emerging technologies such as:

* blockchain and smart contracts, distributed ledgers
* distributed process mining
* privacy-aware and privacy-enhancing technologies
* artificial intelligence and more.

The workshop will also welcome traditional submissions on security and security risk management, including compliance checking, privacy and security policies, monitoring and measuring security activities within business processes.


The goal of SPBP’20 is to obtain a deeper understanding of a rapidly maturing, yet still largely under-investigated field of business process execution using blockchain technologies and other distributed ledgers, privacy-enhanced business processes, business process privacy, integrity and security management and data analysis facilities emerging from the mentioned areas.

* Accountability
* Authorization
* Availability
* Blockchain technology
* Choreography and Orchestration
* Compliance checking
* Confidentiality
* Conformance checking
* Continuous audit
* Cost-benefit analysis
* Distributed ledger
* Economics of audit
* Experience reports
* Formal reasoning
* Fraud detection
* Information flow control
* Information integrity
* Meta-models for analysis
* Modelling
* Operational decision support
* Privacy-aware process discovery
* Privacy-enhanced processes
* Process checking
* Risk measurement
* Security modelling
* Security risk management
* Security testing
* Usage control
* Workflow forensics
