[PVS] BPMDS'2012 - Call for Papers




Dear Colleague and BPMDS author,

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

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 https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpmds2012

Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings to be 
published by Springer LNBIP. Our previous Springer LNBIP proceedings are:

http://www.springerlink.com/content/978-3-642-13050-2/
http://www.springerlink.com/content/978-3-642-01861-9/


Please find underneath the Call for Paper of the BPMDS'2012 conference 
held in conjunction with CAISE'2012. The Call for Papers can also be 
downloaded from the BPMDS Web site:
         http://bpmds.org/

I will be grateful to you for advertising BPMDS'2012 and inviting your 
colleagues and/or research students to submit their work.

BPMDS 2012

International Conference on Business Process Modeling, Development, and 
Support (BPMDS'2012)

the 13th edition of the BPMDS series

held in Conjunction with CAiSE’12


25-26 June 2012, Gdansk, Poland

Papers submission deadline: February 26th, 2012
http://bpmds.org/



SPONSORS:
--------
- Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE). BPMDS 
is officially linked on an ongoing basis to the CAiSE conference series 
(http://www.caise2012.univ.gda.pl/).
- International Federation for Information Processing Working Group 8.1 
(IFIP WG 8.1) (https://research.idi.ntnu.no/ifip-wg81/). Sponsor since 2009.


ABOUT THE BPMDS CONFERENCE:
--------------------------
The topics addressed by the BPMDS series are focused on IT support for 
business processes. This is one of the keystones of Information Systems 
theory. We strongly believe that any major conference in the area of 
Information Systems needs to address such topics independently of the 
current fashion. The continued interest in these topics on behalf of the 
IS community is reflected by the success of the last BPMDS workshops and 
the recent emergence of new conferences devoted to the theme.

The BPMDS series has produced twelve workshops from 1998 to 2011. From 
2011, BPMDS became a two-day working conference attached to CAiSE 
(Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering).

While changing the status of BPMDS, we preserved 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, from now, mandatory for visionary 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: 
http://www.ibissoft.se/bpmds.html


BACKGROUND AND AIMS:
-------------------
As a working conference, we would like to attract more papers describing 
mature research, still giving place to industrial reports and visionary 
papers. In addition, we will have a theme whose relevance will be the 
main criterion for the selection of visionary papers only. We no longer 
require for full research papers and experience reports to be directly 
connected to this theme (they still need to be explicitly relevant to 
BPMDS though). We only suggest to the authors of research papers and 
experience reports, wherever possible, to make connection to the theme.

The theme chosen for BPMDS'12 visionary papers is:

"Business processes and Business Process Management in the Cloud"

We invite the visionaries (from research and industry) to exploit this 
theme in relation to BPMDS. 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 FOR DISCUSSION:
----------------------
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Theoretical foundations for analyzing, modeling, simulating or 
executing business processes
- Business process modeling languages, notations and methods
- Multi-perspectives on business process modeling: integration and coherence
- A broad view on strategy, business processes, people and IT: 
alignment, fit and coherence
- Dynamic configuration; modeling by reuse
- Granularity, development of reusable and context-aware components; 
modeling for reuse
- Domain specific reference models
- Business-IT alignment through business processes	
- Resource management in business process modeling and support
- User-oriented aspects of the business process modeling and support
- Cross-organizational business processes
- Business process change management and governance issues
- Verification and validation of business process models
- Variability and adaptability of business process models
- Efficiency, adequacy, flexibility, agility, compliance, reliability, 
security in business process modeling and execution
- Metrics, maturity and continuous improvement
- Business process support architectures and platforms
- BPMDS based on a service-oriented architecture
- BPMDS combined with social software and social networks
- Mobile technologies and context aware business process modeling


SUBMISSIONS:
-----------
Papers submission deadline: February 26th, 2012

Prospective conference participants are invited to submit a paper that 
concerns business process modeling and development, and business process 
support (development of software dedicated to business processes) and 
that may be related to one or more of the topics for discussion listed 
above. 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 
http://processplatsen.ibissoft.se/node/72.

(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=bpmds2012

E-mail also your abstract as an attachment to 
mailto:selmin.nurcan@univ-paris1.fr


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

After the BPMDS’12 conference, extended versions of the accepted papers 
will be considered for publishing in a special issue of an international 
journal. The previous special issues are:
- BPMDS’11 in IJISMD in progress
- BPMDS’10 selected papers in REJ in progress
- BPMDS’09 in IJISMD, vol. 2, issue 2, 2011
- BPMDS’08 in JSME under press (Journal of Software Maintenance and
