Call for Workshop Proposals
Submissions are invited for workshop proposals to be included in the BPM 2014 Workshop Program. Workshops facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences between active researchers and stimulate discussions on new and emerging perspective in line with the conference topics. Workshops may concentrate on specific research topics or may be devoted to applications and/or standardization issues.
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.
Proposals will be assessed in terms of consistency and completeness. Different criteria will be considered by the workshop chairs for deciding whether a proposal is accepted or not. 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/or 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. Note that the final decision on the acceptance format of a workshop will be made by the workshop chairs considering the above mentioned criteria and the overall impression of the proposal.
Please submit your workshop proposal including at least the following information:
- Workshop title and acronym;
- Outline of the workshop theme, goals, planned activities, and intended audience;
- An indication of whether the workshop is planned as a full day or a half day event;
- Targeted or past acceptance rate(s) and number of submissions;
