BPMDS solicits papers related to Business Process Modeling, Development and Support (BPMDS) using quality, relevance, originality and applicability as main selection criteria. As a working conference, BPMDS’17 seeks to attract full research papers describing mature research, experience reports related to using BPMDS in practice, and visionary idea papers. Practitioners are also encouraged to present lessons learned from practice.

The focus theme for BPMDS'17 idea papers is:

Enabling Business Transformation by Business Process Modeling, Development and Support

About the Working Conference

The topics addressed by the BPMDS series are focused on business processes and their IT support. This is one of the keystones of information systems theory beyond short-lived fashions. The continued interest in this topic on behalf of the IS community is reflected by the success of the past BPMDS events, and their promotion from a workshop to a working conference.

The BPMDS series has produced seventeen events from 1998 to 2016. From 2011, BPMDS has become a two-day working conference attached to CAiSE (Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering). The basic principles of the BPMDS series:

1. BPMDS serves as a meeting place for researchers and practitioners in the areas of business development, and business applications (software) development
2. The aim of the event is mainly discussions, rather than presentations.
3. Each event has a theme that is mandatory for idea papers.
4. Each event's results are, usually, published in a special issue of an international journal.

The goals, format, and history of BPMDS can be found on the web site: http://www.bpmds.org/history

Proceedings will be published by Springer in LNBIP series. The best papers will be invited for publication of the extended versions in a scientific journal. See History & Publications on details.
