Call For Papers

Dear Colleague,

Due to the extremely difficult situation with COVID-19 and many requests, we decided to extend again the submission deadlines for BMSD 2020 (10th International Symposium on Business Modeling and Software Design) to April 21 / April 28 - you may have a look at the website updates (; and also:

We do still hope that we will have a PHYSICAL meeting (the symposium) at the beginning of July in Potsdam-Berlin. But the issue is delicate and even if the situation improves (something we hope for), we will NOT expect everybody to be physically present because we most of all respect the decision of each participant. All those who would decide to travel to Germany are certainly more than welcome. But for those who would not like to travel to Germany (for whatever reasons), this year, AS AN EXCEPTION, it will be possible to attend virtually (virtual participation instructions will follow in due course).

The Springer LNBIP Proceedings preparation is progressing without any deviations from our plans (as in 2018 and 2019). Hence, FOR SURE any accepted BMSD'20 paper will get published, no matter if all we (hopefully) meet physically in Germany or some participants present distantly, without traveling to Germany.

Call for Papers

BMSD 2020 - 10th International Symposium on Business Modeling and Software Design

6-8 July 2020
Berlin, Germany


Assoc. Prof. Dr. Boris Shishkov, IICREST / ULSIT / IMI-BAS, Bulgaria

Prof. Dr. Manfred Reichert, Ulm University, Germany
Prof. Dr. Mathias Weske, HPI - University of Potsdam, Germany


BMSD - the INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON BUSINESS MODELING AND SOFTWARE DESIGN, is a leading international discussion and knowledge dissemination forum that brings together Researchers and Practitioners interested in:
(i) Modeling in general and in particular - Conceptual Modeling, Goal Modeling, Value Modeling, Business/Enterprise Modeling, Process Modeling, Model-Driven Engineering;
(ii) Enterprise Engineering and its relation to Software Generation;
(iii) Information Systems Architectures and Design;
(iv) Data Analytics and its relevance to Enterprise (Information) Systems;
(v) "Hot" topics relevant to Business Modeling and Software Design, such as Blockchain Technology and Internet-of-Things.

Adequate business models are of huge importance not only for understanding and (re-)engineering an organization but also for automating (part of) its processes by means of software systems. Not grasping correctly and exhaustively an enterprise system would inevitably lead to consequent software failures. It is therefore claimed that software generation should essentially have its roots in corresponding enterprise engineering models.


In 2020, BMSD will be held in BERLIN, GERMANY, following previous events in Portugal (Lisbon, 2019), Austria (Vienna, 2018), Spain (Barcelona, 2017), Greece (Rhodes, 2016), Italy (Milan, 2015), the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Luxembourg, 2014), The Netherlands (Noordwijkerhout, 2013), Switzerland (Geneva, 2012), and Bulgaria (Sofia, 2011).
