Dear friends,

Due to many requests, the submission deadline of BPMDS for full papers  
has been extended to *February 28th*. Abstract submission is required  
by February 22.

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, up to February 28d, 2013, through the  
conference management system available at

Best regards,

Selmin Nurcan
On behalf of BPMDS'2013 Organising Committee

International Conference on Business Process Modeling, Development,  
and Support (BPMDS'2013)

the 14th edition of the BPMDS series held in conjunction with CAiSE’13

17-18 June 2013, Valencia, Spain

Submission deadline: February 28th, 2013

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

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


- 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) (https://research.idi.ntnu.no/ifip-wg81/). Sponsor  
since 2009.

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, and a topic that any major conference in  
the area of information systems needs to address, independently of the  
current fashion. 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 thirteen events from 1998 to 2012. 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) development
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'13 idea papers is "Coping with Complexity in  
Business Processes".

Today, business processes have to cope with increasing complexity in  
several areas. First, business processes are increasingly becoming  
cross and inter organizational. External processes and services have  
to be integrated into processes. Second, data is becoming more and  
more important for business processes. Recent advances such as data  
science and big data provide huge amounts of information to be  
processed in business processes. Third, business processes are  
executed in complex environments, which may consist of cloud-services  
and resources and may introduce flexibility requirements.

We invite the visionaries (from research and industry) to exploit this  
theme and submit idea papers that deal with specific complexity  
aspects of business processes, such as data orientation as in MDM  
(master data management) and relation to big data, need for  
context-awareness and flexibility, and integration of business  
processes with social media.

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,
- 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
- Business processes using cloud-services
- Mobile technologies and context aware business processes

Requirements on Business Processes
- Compliance, reliability, security, performance
- Flexibility, variability, adaptability
- Metrics, maturity and continuous improvement
- Resource management in business processes
- User-oriented aspects
- Strategy, business processes, people and IT: alignment, fit and coherence
- 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=bpmds2013

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

After the BPMDS’13 conference, extended versions of the accepted  
papers will be considered for publishing in a special issue of an  
international journal.

BPMDS’11 in IJISMD in progress, BPMDS’10 selected papers
