Call For Papers
2nd International Workshop on Data and Artifact-Centric BPM (DAB'2013)
Held in conjunction with the 11th International Conference on Business 
Process Management (BPM'2013), Beijing, China.

Traditionally, researchers in the field of Business Process Management 
(BPM) have focused on studying control-flow aspects of business 
processes independently of data aspects. This separation of concerns has 
enabled the development of various foundational theories and methods for 
BPM. However, the limits of theories and methods built on this 
separation of concerns are now becoming evident, particularly with the 
increasing pressure to support flexible business processes, where 
control-flow is often intermingled with data.

In recent years, various approaches have emerged that emphasize the 
integration of data and control as key pillars to support the 
specification, analysis and enactment of flexible and rich business 
processes. From the scientific as well as the practical viewpoint, it is 
critical to study the fundamental relationships, characteristics and 
properties of these emerging integrated perspectives, where data and 
processes are considered together.

The DAB workshop aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners 
whose common interests and experience are in the study and development 
of data- and artifact- centric approaches to Business Processes Management.

We solicit papers that investigate the tight interplay between data and 
control flow in business processes, for example on the following topics:
- Integrated data and process modeling
- Artifact-centric process modeling
- Declarative and constraint-based process modeling
- Data-centric flexible process management
- Case management
- Data-centric collaborative business processes
- Mining data-enriched process models
- Data-centric conformance and compliance management
- Integrated data and process management on the Cloud
- Composition and discovery of data-centric processes
- Analysis of data-centric/artifact-centric processes
- Data-centric process monitoring and performance management
- Case studies and empirical studies on Data- & Artifact- centric BPM

All workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop 
proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information 
Processing (LNBIP).
