Smart BPM for a Smarter World

S-BPM ONE is established as the primary venue of conceptual and practical innovations in the field of Subject-Oriented Business Process Management. The 9th International S-BPM ONE Conference 2017 will put an emphasis on novel approaches to value creation in cyber-physical systems that leverage BPM technology, and S-BPM in particular. Smart cities, integrated (inter-)enterprise value chains, smart energy and smart transport systems are just a few of the fields where BPM can make a difference. Besides this focus, S-BPM ONE invites contributions from all pertinent topics as usual.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Connecting real-world actors and activities in real-time with BPM processes
  • Integrating sensors, actors, apps and events to BPM
  • Integrating field workers and stakeholders in S-BPM
  • Governing Governance Networks
  • Managing Urban Ecosystems with S-BPM
  • Relating Organizational Resilience and Infrastructure Resilience based on (S-)BPM
  • Connecting Urban Data and Urban Services to Value Added Process Networks
  • Embedding Cyber-physical Systems (CPS) in S-BPM
  • Embedding Network and Actor Theories in S-BPM
  • Towards Network-Centric BPM
  • Applying agile Methods on BPM
  • Formal semantics and methods for S-BPM
  • Open Process Access in BPM Networks
  • Advancing Social BPM towards Subject-Oriented BPM
  • Repositioning Agent-based Systems for Value-based BPM
  • Process Values ‘in the Cloud’
  • Value Emergence in Process Networks
  • Enterprise Architecting for Value-based Process Networks
  • Enriching Cross-organizational Business Processes for Value Creation
  • BPM in Organizational Learning and Knowledge Management Networks
  • Collaboration in Smart Cities

Submission Types

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.

We also plan keynotes to specific BPM topics.

Submission Guidelines

All submissions will be subject to a double blind review by a body of international program committee members. Members of the program committee are encouraged to submit papers. Their contributions will be reviewed without conflicts of interests.
