Call for Workshop Proposals

BPM 2009 is the seventh conference in a series that provides the most distinguished 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 theory, frameworks, methods, techniques, architectures, and empirical findings.

Submissions are invited for workshop proposals to be included in the BPM 2009 Workshop Program. Workshops are meant to facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences between active researchers, and stimulate discussions on new and emerging issues in line with the conference topics. Workshops may concentrate in-depth on research topics, or may also be devoted to application and/or standardization issues.

All the workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-proceeding volume (to be sent around 4 months after the workshop) in their Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series.

Proposals for one-day workshops are requested and should include the following information:

Workshop title and acronym
Brief biography of each organizer
An outline of the workshop theme, goals, planned activities, and intended audience
The complete text of the envisioned call for papers. (Most important dates can be found on the conference homepage. A complete schedule will be provided for the call for workshops.)
