BPM 2011
9th International Conference on Business Process Management 2011
August 29-September 2, Clermont-Ferrand, France


Call for Research Papers

BPM 2011 is the ninth conference in a series that provides the most
distinguished research forum for researchers and practitioners in all
aspects of BPM including theory, frameworks, methods, techniques,
architectures, systems, and empirical findings. With an acceptance
rate in previous editions at around 13% the conference has a record of
attracting innovative research of highest quality, from a mix of
disciplines including Computer Science, Management Information
Science, Services Computing, Services Science, and Technology

This year’s conference will continue with the broad-based themes of
previous editions, and strives to strengthen and expand in several key
directions . The conference encourages emerging research on new
conceptual models for BPM that attempt to unify core aspects of BPM,
including process management, data management, business rules and
requirements, and analytics. The conference also encourages the
increasing interest in applying established and new techniques, such
as model-driven architectures, Web services and Web architectures,
SOA, and Cloud Computing, to the specific challenges of BPM. In this
context, the conference is also looking for contributions on
implementation techniques and details for process or Web service
execution engines with focus on new application areas. Finally, the
conference seeks to attract papers that highlight the pervasive need
for BPM capabilities across application areas outside of business
management, including healthcare delivery, digital government,
disaster management, and management of scientific and other academic
endeavors, and that highlight how new techniques can solve the
distinctive challenges arising in those diverse areas. Awards will be
given to the best papers in different categories.

BPM 2011 will be held in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and will be
organized by the LIMOS Laboratory (http://www.isima.fr/limos/), CNRS,
Université Blaise Pascal. The conference will take place at the campus
des cezeaux which is located about minutes from the city center.
Clermont-Ferrand is a medium-sized city located in the heart of
Auvergne, one of the most beautiful regions of France: ancient
volcanoes, lakes and gorges, historic sites and Romanesque
architecture make its wealth. Information about the venue and local
area are provided on the conference website: http://bpm2011.isima.fr/

Conference Paper Submission

BPM 2011 invites research submissions on all topics related to
business process management, including but not limited to those listed
above. Research papers should be submitted electronically via the
EasyChair system at 13 March 2011.

Initial submissions must be received no later than 6 March 2011
(including at least title and abstract). Final papers must be
submitted by 13 March 2011. Submission details and formatting
instructions are given at the website. All accepted papers will be
included in the conference proceedings published by Springer-Verlag in
their LNCS series. For each accepted paper, at least one author is
required to register for the conference and should plan to present the
paper. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their paper to a special issue Information Systems
(an Elsevier Science Journal).

Additional Conference Activities
The BPM 2011 conference will include a diverse set of tracks and
activities in addition to the main research track. As with previous
editions of the conference, there will be several associated workshops
that explore newly emerging approaches, methods, and technologies in
the BPM space. All or most of these workshops will be held on 29
August 2011. The Demo Track will showcase new, innovative systems that
illustrate key BPM functionalities. The proceedings of the workshops,
and short papers describing the demos, will be published in a volume
of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing
(LNBIP). The Industrial Experiences track aims at bridging the
viewpoints of leading research outcomes with practical demands and
industrial experience; practitioners are encouraged to submit papers
reporting on innovative industrial implementations and applications of
BPM methods and techniques, with a particular emphasis on their impact
on information technology use or business practice. The conference
will include tutorials on cutting-edge frameworks and associated
principled techniques for solving BPM challenges. There are plans for
a Doctoral Consortium, that will provide students in advanced stages
of their dissertation work an opportunity to share their research with
peers, world-class researchers, and industry experts in Business
Process Management. Finally, a summer school directly following the
main conference is envisioned.
