Call for papers

S-BPM ONE is established as the primary venue of conceptual and practical innovations in the field of Subject-Oriented Business Process Management. After initiating the transition from primarily function-oriented BPM towards stakeholder-driven transformation of organizations based on BPM in 2012 and 2013, network-driven BPM will be explored for value creation in the 6th International S-BPM ONE. Becoming aware of the various contextual factors of value creation in and through process networks, we invite interested practitioners and researchers to contribute their experience and knowledge to the Value.Net.Working. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to

  • Governing Process Networks
  • Embedding Network and Actor Theories in S-BPM
  • Expressing Network Process’ Values
  • Enriching BPMN towards a Network Process Management Notation
  • Dynamic Stakeholder Management based on S-BPM
  • Enabling Organizational Resilience based on (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
  • Repositioning BPM in Organizational Learning and Knowledge Management Networks

Submission types

Please find the format of submission convenient for you:

  • (S-)BPM Research Papers as the way to present quality state-of-the-art research in all related areas. Of particular interest are methodological approaches to support networked value creation. For researchers with interest in BPM, value creation, and networked systems this is a primary citation source. Submissions should not exceed 20 pages.
  • (S-)BPM Experience or Application Studies for developers or users of (S-)BPM systems having an interesting experience report to share about a network BPM product, solution or application. Submissions should not exceed 15 pages.
  • (S-)BPM Interactive Education Material for facilitators wanting to share knowledge about learning to create value through BPM in network socio-economic systems. The education track is an excellent opportunity to co-create content and elaborated methodological findings. Submissions should not exceed 20 pages. They should include empirical evidence.
  • (S-)BPM demos: This track is for practical work that can be presented to receive focused feedback on BPM-driven value creation, and to demonstrate network capabilities. Submissions should not exceed 10 pages.
  • (S-)BPM Value Network Challenge contributions: Specifications of network or cross-enterprise approaches to value creation targeting developers of S-BPM languages, systems and techniques are invited. They should clearly demonstrate the involvement of network actors and value carriers in socio-economic networks. (Research) Prototypes will be allowed for in-depth presentations. Each submission should contain sufficient details to judge the originality of the approach. It should not exceed 15 pages.
  • S-BPM Gong Show contributions: The Gong Show will consist of short presentations about visionary and outrageous ideas towards S-BPM-based value creation in socio-economic networks. Selection will be based on submitted abstracts. If you have far-reaching ideas about either methodology or technology this the opportunity to share, get feedback, and even win an award. The submission required is a 5-page extended abstract
  • S-BPM Young Researcher Networking Event contributions: Master or PhD students in advanced topics of S-BPM, 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 students‘ participation. The submission required is just a one page abstract reflecting the theme and status of the work.

For interaction and presentation various formats will be offered, enriched with keynotes to specific BPM topics. 

Submission guidelines

Submission language is English.

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.

Individuals may be co-authors of more than one paper, but will be able to present only one paper.

All submissions will be handled through the Opens external link in new windowConference Management System (CMS) ConfTool. It is not possible to submit papers through any other channel, such as e-mail.

The CMS allows initial submissions including type, title, and author information, without uploading the actual contribution. Authors are encouraged to use that feature to facilitate planning for the organizers. Authors need submitting a signed copyright form as a scanned PDF document together with the camera-ready version of their paper through the CMS in case of acceptance. One author may sign on behalf of all of the other authors of a particular paper.

Submission format

Authors, when submitting a contribution, must follow the formatting guidelines  of the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).

Springer provides templates for LaTeX and MS Word and instructions supporting authors to prepare their camera-ready manuscripts according to the required format. These are available on the author’s information page


Accepted papers will be published by Springer in Opens external link in new windowLNBIP - Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (scientific track) or Opens external link in new windowCCIS - Communication in Computer and Information Science (other).

Authors of selected papers might also be invited for publishing their work in national or international journals, e.g., Universal Access in Information Society, Journal of Interaction Science, Int. J. of People-Oriented Programming, Social Technologies.
