Call For Papers

Call for Research and Industry Papers

BPM 2013 is the eleventh edition of the reference conference for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process Management (BPM). The conference covers all aspects of BPM, including theory, models, techniques, architectures, systems, and empirical studies, and engages the most renowned representatives of the BPM community worldwide in talks, tutorials, and scientific discussions.

This year’s edition of the conference seeks contributions in all the traditional areas of BPM and, at the same time, reaches out to emerging fields of research, industrial practice, and applications. Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of BPM, the conference also encourages submissions that embrace other disciplines such as Information Systems and IT Management, Data and Knowledge Management, Web/Software Engineering, Service-Oriented Computing, Social Computing, Cloud Computing, and many more. The key criteria for acceptance are excellence and answering challenges specific to the field of BPM.

As in previous editions, BPM 2013 will host a dedicated industrial track – next to its research track – and feature a varied set of BPM-related workshops and co-located events. Industrial track submissions should report on innovative industrial implementations and applications and highlight their impact on business practice.

BPM 2013 will take place in Beijing, the capital of China, and it will be the first edition of the BPM conference series in Asia. Next to the world-famous sites of the Great Wall, the Summer Palace, the Forbidden City, and Tiantan – four world cultural heritage sites recognized by UNESCO – Beijing hosts a constantly growing concentration of cutting-edge, industrial research labs and academic institutions from all over the world, making it a melting pot of creativity and innovation.
