Dear Colleague,

We wish you a Happy, Healty and Joyful New Year.
Seasons Greetings,

Selmin Nurcan
On behalf of BPMDS'2014 Organising Committee

BPMDS is a two-day working conference attached to CAiSE (Conference on 
Advanced Information Systems Engineering).

The topics addressed by the BPMDS series are focused on business 
processes and their IT support. One of the major aims is to discuss and 
to learn about concepts and techniques to enhance the ability to 
engineer software systems closer the business requirements.

The papers should be submitted through the conference management system 
available at

International Conference on Business Process Modeling, Development, and 
Support (BPMDS'2014)

the 15th edition of the BPMDS series
                                 held in conjunction with CAiSE’14

16-17 June 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece

Submission deadline: February 26th, 2014

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


- Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE). BPMDS 
Working Conference is officially linked on an ongoing basis to the CAiSE 
conference series).
- International Federation for Information Processing Working Group 8.1 
(IFIP WG 8.1).

The topics addressed by the BPMDS series are focused on business 
processes and their IT support. This is one of the keystones of 
information systems theory beyond short-lived fashions. The continued 
interest in this topic on behalf of the IS community is reflected by the 
success of the past BPMDS events, and their promotion from a workshop to 
a working conference.

The BPMDS series has produced fourteen events from 1998 to 2013. From 
2011, BPMDS has become a two-day working conference attached to CAiSE 
(Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering). 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) 
2. The aim of the event is mainly discussions, rather than presentations.
3. Each event has a theme that is mandatory for idea 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: 


BPMDS solicits papers related to Business Process Modeling, Development 
and Support (BPMDS) in general, using quality as a main selection 
criterion. As a working conference, we would like to attract papers 
describing mature research, but we still give place to industrial 
reports and visionary idea papers. To encourage new and emerging 
challenges and research directions in the area of business process 
modeling, development and support, we have a unique focus theme every year.

Papers submitted as idea papers will be required to be of relevance to 
the focus theme, thus providing a mass of new ideas around a relatively 
narrow but emerging research area.

Full research papers and experience reports are not required to be 
directly connected to this theme (they still need to be explicitly 
relevant to BPMDS though).

The focus theme for BPMDS'14 idea papers is

*The human perspective in Business Processes ***

The human perspective is of essence since it is humans who drive 
business processes rather than computers. This perspective plays a major 
role in all phases of Business Process Modeling, Design and Support. The 
human perspective in business process modeling relates to the individual 
who creates a process model, to the communication among people that is 
facilitated by the business process model during and after the modeling 
process, and to the social process of collaborative modeling. The human 
perspective in business process design relates to the kind of 
interaction / collaboration / coordination / cooperation that should to 
be implemented in the business process or to specific human-related 
aspects of the business process itself and their representations in 
models. Human perspective in business process support relates to all 
social aspects of the business process and its management in an 

We invite the visionaries (from research and industry) to exploit this 
theme and submit idea papers that deal with specific human aspects of 
business processes.

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:

*Business Process Modeling*
- Business process modeling languages, notations and methods
- Multi-perspectives on business process modeling
- Representations of humans in business process models (expertise, 
skills, preferences, intentions, emotions…)
- Actor-driven (vs activity driven) representations of business processes
- Coherence among multi-perspective representations
- Theoretical foundations for analyzing, modeling business processes
- Verification and validation of business process models
- Variability and adaptability of business process models
- Dynamic configuration; modeling by reuse
- Granularity, development of reusable and context-aware components; 
modeling for reuse
- Domain specific reference models
- Business process modeling enhanced by social software and social networks

*Business Process Support*
- Business process change management and governance issues
- Theoretical foundations for simulating or executing business processes
- Business process support architectures and platforms
- Business process support based on a service-oriented architecture
- Business process support combined with social software and social networks
- Work allocation in business processes
- Actor support vs control support in business processes
- Enhancing creativity in business processes
- Mobile technologies and context aware business processes
- Business processes using cloud-services

*Requirements on Business Processes*
- Human-centric business processes
- Compliance, reliability, security, performance
- Flexibility, variability, adaptability
- Metrics, maturity and continuous improvement
- Human resource management in business processes
- User-oriented aspects
- Strategy, business processes, people and IT: alignment, fit and coherence
- Knowledge-intensive business processes
- Context aware business processes
- Cross-organizational business processes
- Data-intensive business processes
- BPMDS in the cloud

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

Thus three kinds of submissions are possible:

(1) Full research papers.

(2) Experience reports, which should follow guidelines in 

(3) Idea papers related to the focus theme, devoted to completely new 
research positions or approaches, in order to face to a generic 
situation that arises because of, for instance, new methods and tools or 
new types of emerging challenges; the compliance to the focus theme is 
mandatory for idea papers, which should describe precisely the situation 
and demonstrate the shortcomings of current methods, tools, ways of 
reasoning, meta-models, etc.

Papers of all submission types should be of up to 15 pages. 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 https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpmds2014 .

The conference proceedings will be published in a Springer LNBIP volume 
(joint with EMMSAD), "Enterprise, Business-Process and Information 
Systems Modeling”, as the five previous years (LNBIP 29, LNBIP 50, LNBIP 
81, LNBIP 113, LNBIP 147).

After the BPMDS’14 conference, extended versions of the accepted papers 
will be considered for publishing in a special issue of an international
