BPM 2012 is the tenth conference in a series that provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process Management.
Over the past decade, the conference has built its reputation by showcasing leading-edge research of the highest quality together with talks, tutorials and discussions by the most renown thought leaders and innovators in the field. The BPM conference series embraces the diversity and richness of the BPM field and serves as a melting pot for experts from a mix of disciplines including Computer Science, Information Systems Management, Technology Management and Services Science.
BPM 2012 will continue to foster research on the broad-based themes covered in earlier editions of the conference. Moreover, BPM 2012 encourages submissions in emerging fields of research and seeks to strengthen the relation to related research areas or fields of application. This includes research on models and methods that unify process management with data and business rules management. The conference also encourages contributions that apply or combine established and new techniques, such as Model-Driven Architecture, Web engineering, Service-Oriented Architectures, and Cloud Computing, to the specific challenges of BPM.
In addition to a research track, BPM 2012 also features an industrial track. Industry practitioners are encouraged to submit experience and application papers reporting on innovative industrial implementations and applications of business process management methods and techniques, with a particular focus on their impact on business practice. These papers should present industrial solutions that go beyond proof-of-concept prototypes or “potentially applicable” methods, and that are based on industrial experience or empirical data.
Awards will be given to the best papers in different categories. In addition, selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to a special issue of the journal of Information Systems published by Elsevier.
BPM 2012 will take place in Tallinn, Estonia. Tallinn is a progressive and dynamic city with a milenary history. Tallinn offers all the infrastructure and facilities of a global technology hub, combined with highly attractive tourism opportunities. The picturesque Tallinn Old Town, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List, is a unique pearl of medieval architecture, considered as one of the most intact medieval city centres in the world.
