"Subject: Digital Organization"

S-BPM ONE is established as the primary venue of conceptual and practical innovations in the field of Subject-oriented Business Process Management. Its anniversary, the 10th International S-BPM ONE Conference 2018 will put an emphasis on organizational aspects, structuring the enlarging and diversifying body of S-BPM knowledge, and deepening its impact on digitizing organizations, business sectors, and networks of organizations. Of particular interest are semantically interoperable systems and dynamically generated value chains in societal backbone systems, such as e-health, digital education, and smart regions. Besides this focus, S-BPM ONE invites contributions from all pertinent topics in research and development. For the first time, S-BPM ONE will host workshops that allow community-driven discussions of emerging fields of research or practice-oriented challenges.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to         

  • S-BPM integration technologies
  • Stakeholders as digital organization designers
  • Governance in digital organizations
  • Managing digital infrastructures of organizations
  • Organizational Resilience based on (S-)BPM
  • Servitization through Subjects
  • Softwarization of communication networks through S-BPM
  • Disappearing Internet of Things
  • Theory building for digital organizations
  • Formal semantics and methods for digitizing organizations
  • Standardization of S-BPM (technologies)
  • Repositioning Agent-based Systems for Value-based BPM
  • Digital architecting based on S-BPM
  • Organizational Learning Support based on S-BPM
  • Subject-oriented collaborative knowledge elicitation
  • Negotiation support along digitization processes
  • Transhumanism and S-BPM

Submission Types

We solicit a wide range of submissions reaching from research papers and experience or application studies to gong show contributions. For more details refer to the submission section on the conference website. The following variety of submissions is invited:

  • Research Papers as the way to present quality state-of-the-art research in all related BPM areas; for researchers with interest in BPM and related areas this is a primary citation source. Submissions should not exceed 10 pages (ACM format).
  • Practitioner Reports: This track is for practical BPM system developments or BPM implementation work that can be demonstrated either through hands-on-experience or presentations to receive focused feedback. Submissions on elaborated work practices and case studies on BPM are welcome. BPM practitioners are provided with the opportunity of oral presentation. Submissions outlining such presentations should not exceed one page (ACM format) plus technical installation requirements (if any).
  • Young Researcher Networking Event Contributions: Master or PhD students in one of the above mentioned areas, either in early stage or late stage, are encouraged to share ideas with peers and receive feedback in a relaxed atmosphere with senior people from research and development communities. Supervisors of master or PhD students are kindly asked to encourage their respective student participation. The submission required is just a one page abstract (ACM format) reflecting the theme and status of the work.
  • Work in Progress concerns submissions on on-going challenging and exploratory research or late-breaking results. This track will provide the opportunity of a poster presentation, as it is held in conjunction with the main tracks of the conference. Contributors will be asked to brief the audience through elevator pitches.
  • Workshop Proposals: S-BPM ONE solicits the submission of workshop proposals. Workshops will last half a day to a full day and deal with emerging fields of research or practice-oriented challenges. Workshops facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences among active researchers and practitioners and stimulate discussions on new and emerging perspectives in line with the conference topics. Workshops are free to follow their own format and accept a range of contributions. Scientifically reviewed workshop papers are planned to be published in a volume of CEUR-WS. Workshop proposals should not exceed 2 pages (ACM format) and should give the title of 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; an outline of the intended format and prospective types of submissions; a list of organizers and a tentative list of program committee members (if a review process is planned for the workshop).
