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

Call for Research Papers

Abstract submissions: 6 March 2011
Final paper submissions: 13 March 2011

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/ .

Research topics include, but are not limited to:

Process modeling languages, notations and methods
Data-aware and data-centric approaches to BPM

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.
