Chairs, to<> .

Call for Workshop Proposals

BPM 2017 is the 15th conference in a series that provides the most prestigious 
forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process 
Management (BPM). The conference has a record of attracting innovative research 
of highest quality related to all aspects of business process management, 
including theories, frameworks, methods, techniques, architectures, and 
empirical findings. BPM 2017, hosted by the Universitat Politècnica de 
Catalunya, will take place in Barcelona, Spain.

BPM 2017 is soliciting proposals for one-day or half-day workshops to be held 
as a preamble to the main conference. Workshops facilitate the exchange of 
ideas and experiences among active researchers and stimulate discussions on new 
and emerging perspectives in line with the conference topics. Workshops may 
focus on specific research topics or be devoted to applications or 
standardization issues. Workshop proposals that expand the scope of topics and 
paradigms traditionally represented at the BPM conference series are encouraged.

All workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop 
proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information 
Processing (LNBIP). These proceedings will be made available to all registered 
participants approximately four months after the workshops, while preliminary 
proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.

Different criteria will be considered by the general workshop chairs for 
deciding whether or not a proposal is accepted. The workshop proposers should 
have a strong affinity with the proposed workshop topic and be well connected 
with experts on that topic. The workshop itself should provide a forum for 
important, innovative and timely BPM subtopics. Furthermore, we encourage the 
workshop proposers to integrate mechanisms in their workshop to stimulate 
discussion and interaction beyond what is possible in a plenary conference 
session. Beyond these aspects, the workshop chairs will ensure that the 
accepted workshops as a whole cover a broad spectrum of the BPM research 
discipline. To this end, there will be a negotiation phase in which we seek to 
consolidate and mark off promising workshop proposals that show overlap. The 
final decision on the acceptance format of a workshop will be made by the 
general workshop chairs considering the aforementioned criteria and the overall 
impression of the proposal.

Workshop proposals should include the following elements:
- The title of the workshop and an acronym;
- An outline of the workshop theme, goals, planned activities, and the intended 
- An indication of whether the workshop is planned as a full day or a half day 
- The targeted (or past) number of submissions and acceptance rate(s);
- A brief biography of each workshop organizer;
- The activities envisioned to stimulate submissions to the workshop;
- The tentative PC and call for papers.

Workshop proposals must be submitted as a PDF document to: Conference<> by the 
deadline indicated below. Any inquiries and requests for additional information 
about the organization of workshops should be sent to this e-mail address as
