BPMDS 2011

International Conference on Business Process Modeling, Development,  
and Support (BPMDS'2011)

the 12th edition of the BPMDS series

held in Conjunction with CAiSE'11

20-21 June 2011, London, UK

The Call for Papers can be downloaded from the BPMDS Web site

- Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE). As  
of 2010, BPMDS is officially linked on an ongoing basis to the CAiSE  
conference series (http://www.caise2011.com).
- International Federation for Information Processing Working Group  
8.1 (IFIP WG 8.1) (https://research.idi.ntnu.no/ifip-wg81/). Sponsor  
since 2009.

The topics addressed by the BPMDS series are focused on IT support for  
business processes. This is one of the keystones of Information  
Systems theory. We strongly believe that any major conference in the  
area of Information Systems needs to address such topics independently  
of the current fashion. The continued interest in these topics on  
behalf of the IS community is reflected by the success of the last  
BPMDS workshops and the recent emergence of new conferences devoted to  
the theme.

The BPMDS series has produced eleven workshops from 1998 to 2010. From  
2011, BPMDS becomes a two-day working conference attached to CAiSE  
(Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering).

While changing the status of BPMDS, we preserve the basic principles  
of the BPMDS series:
1. BPMDS serves as a meeting place for researchers and practitioners  
in the areas of business development, and business applications  
(software) development
2. The aim of the event is mainly discussions, rather than presentations.
3. Each event has a theme that is, from now, mandatory for visionary papers.
4. Each event's results are, usually, published in a special issue of  
an international journal.
The goals, format, and history of BPMDS can be found on the web site:  

Previously, each event had a relatively narrow theme, different each  
year, related to the current progress in the area of BPM. Our  
intention is now to solicit papers related to Business Process  
Modeling, Development and Support (BPMDS) in general, using quality as  
a main selection criterion, instead of relevance to a narrower theme.

As a working conference, we would like to attract more papers  
describing mature research, still giving place to industrial reports  
and visionary papers. In addition, we will have a theme whose  
relevance will be the main criterion for the selection of visionary  
papers only. We no longer require for full research papers and  
experience reports to be directly connected to this theme (they still  
need to be explicitly relevant to BPMDS though). We only suggest to  
the authors of research papers and experience reports, wherever  
possible, to make connection to the theme.

The theme chosen for BPMDS'11 visionary papers is

Making BPM theory work in practice: "There is nothing more practical  
then a good theory (Kurt Lewin)"

We invite the visionaries (from research and industry) to exploit this  
theme in relation to BPMDS. We also welcome research papers that  
include ideas on how theoretical results discussed can be used in  
practice, as well as experience reports on using theories in practice.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Theoretical foundations for analyzing, modeling, simulating or  
executing business processes
- Business process modeling languages, notations and methods
- Multi-perspectives on business process modeling: integration and coherence
- A broad view on strategy, business processes, people and IT:  
alignment, fit and coherence
- Dynamic configuration; modeling by reuse
- Granularity, development of reusable and context-aware components;  
modeling for reuse
- Domain specific reference models
- Business-IT alignment through business processes
- Resource management in business process modeling and support
- User-oriented aspects of the business process modeling and support
- Cross-organizational business processes
- Business process change management and governance issues
- Verification and validation of business process models
- Variability and adaptability of business process models
- Efficiency, adequacy, flexibility, agility, compliance, reliability,  
security in business process modeling and execution
- Metrics, maturity and continuous improvement
- Business process support architectures and platforms
- BPMDS based on a service-oriented architecture
- BPMDS combined with social software and social networks
- Mobile technologies and context aware business process modelling

Papers submission deadline: March 4th, 2011

Prospective conference participants are invited to submit a paper that  
concerns business process modeling and development, and business  
process support (development of software dedicated to business  
processes) and that may be related to one or more of the topics for  
discussion listed above. We solicit the papers (both research papers  
and experience reports) that contain results worth of discussion. For  
research papers, it means that reported research should be in an  
advance stage and a paper includes results and at least partial  

Thus three kinds of submissions are possible.

(1) Full research papers of up to 15 pages.

(2) Experience reports of up to 15 pages (which should follow  
guidelines in http://processplatsen.ibissoft.se/node/72).

(3) Visionary papers of up to 8 pages, devoted to research in progress  
or to position papers; the compliance to the theme is mandatory for  
visionary papers.

Please follow the LNCS format instructions at  
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html 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 http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpmds2011

E-mail also your abstract as an attachment to  
mailto:selmin.nurcan at univ-paris1.fr

The conference proceedings will be published in a Springer LNBIP  
volume (joint with EMMSAD), under the title of "Enterprise,  
Business-Process and Information Systems Modeling" as the two previous  
years. The proceedings of BPMDS'09 and BPMDS'10 have been published  
under the references LNBIP 29 and JNBIP 50.

After the BPMDS'11 conference, extended versions of the accepted  
papers will be considered for publishing in a special issue of an  
international journal (previous special issues: BPMDS'09 in IJISMD  
under press - BPMDS'08 in SPIP in progress - 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.
