Recent Advances in Process-Oriented Thinking and Process-Driven Developments

The well-established S-BPM ONE conference series is the number one meeting point for the growing community of researchers and practitioners in the area of adaptive and stakeholder-driven Business Process Management. Production and service industry is exposed increasingly to challenges that occur dynamically, driven by external forces and internal innovation, however, significantly affecting value-creating processes. In order to build organizational adaptation capacities, organizations need continuously reflect and renew developments, work practices and stakeholder relationships. Business processes need to be structured for dynamic adaptation according to various stakeholder needs and their capability of collectively designing systems.

S-BPM ONE 2016 provides the forum to continue the dialogue between academia and practice for handling these challenges through innovate concepts and process management techniques. This conference attracts leading edge work that leverages understanding demands and learning to create anti-fragile organizational settings featuring the dynamic development of (networked) organizations. The aim is to stimulate research and development in various phases and functional areas of business process management.

The event will promote interdisciplinary approaches from computer science and information systems, as well as business, management and organization science. Emphasis will be put on systematic reflections related to business process creation, representation, and processing-on-the-fly, recognizing recent developments, such as

  • Digital Business Transformation
  • Deviation Management
  • Intelligent Infrastructures
  • Enriching BPMN towards a Network Process Management Notation
  • Industry 4.0 / Additive Manufacturing
  • Dynamic Capability Deployment
  • Process Platform Formation
  • Process Performance Indication
  • Process Visualization
  • Social and Stakeholder-driven BPM
  • Systemic Process Governance
  • Contextual Process Architecting
  • Cross-organizational BPM
  • Knowledge-driven BPM
  • Processes as Services
  • BPM in Large, International, and Networked Organizations
  • Value-Based BPM
  • BPM Skill and Competence Development
  • Innovative IT-Implementation of Business Processes (e.g., Reactive Programming, Microservices, Normalized Systems)

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)
  • Capacity Building Workshops for trainers, teachers, or facilitators having done work of survey or wanting to share in-depth educational knowledge with a broad audience. The education track is an excellent opportunity to share tutorial and methodological findings. The anticipated audience will consist of additional interested people from industry. Submissions should not exceed 4 pages (ACM format) plus demonstrational material. Each contribution should include empirical application evidence.
  • Gong Show Contributions: The Gong Show will consist of very short presentations about visionary and outrageous ideas towards the next generation of BPM. The audience will vote for the best idea. If you have far-reaching idea about either technology or novel use this is your opportunity to share, get feedback, and even win an award. The submission required is a 2-page extended abstract (ACM format) indicating the originality of the approach.
  • 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.
