BPM 2015 is the 13th conference in a series that provides the most distinguished and specialized forum for researchers and practitioners in business process management (BPM). The conference has a record of attracting innovative research of highest quality related to all aspects of business process management, including theories, frameworks, methods, techniques, architectures, and empirical findings.

Submissions are invited for workshop proposals to be included in the BPM 2015 workshop program. Workshops facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences among active researchers and stimulate discussions on new and emerging perspectives in line with the conference topics. Workshops may focus on specific research topics or be devoted to applications or standardization issues.

All workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). These proceedings will be made available to all registered participants approximately four months after the workshops, while preliminary proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.

Different criteria will be considered by the general workshop chairs for deciding whether or not a proposal is accepted. The workshop proposers should have a strong affinity with the proposed workshop topic and be well connected with experts on that topic. The workshop itself should provide a forum for important, innovative and timely BPM subtopics. Furthermore, we encourage the workshop proposers to integrate mechanisms in their workshop to stimulate discussion and interaction beyond what is possible in a plenary conference session. Beyond these aspects, the workshop chairs will ensure that the accepted workshops as a whole cover a broad spectrum of the BPM research discipline. To this end, there will be a negotiation phase in which we seek to consolidate and mark off promising workshop proposals that show overlap. Note that the final decision on the acceptance format of a workshop will be made by the general workshop chairs considering the aforementioned criteria and the overall impression of the proposal.

  • The title for the workshop and an acronym;
  • An outline of the workshop theme, goals, planned activities, and the intended audience;
  • An indication of whether the workshop is planned as a full day or a half day event;
  • The targeted or past acceptance rate(s) and number of submissions;
  • A brief biography of each organizer;
  • The activities envisioned to stimulate submissions to the workshop;
  • The tentative PC and call for papers.

Workshop proposals may be submitted as an A4 PDF document via
