Special Session on Advancing Business Process Management (A-BPM)

August 28-30, 2019

Important Dates:

  • Abstract submission to tracks and sessions: March 1st, 2019
  • Paper submission deadline March 15th, 2019 April 1st, 2019
  • Notification of accepted papers: May 6th, 2019
  • Camera-ready paper due: June 3rd, 2019

Motivation: Over the last decades, Business Process Management (BPM) research field has delivered a large collection of methods, techniques and tools to effectively discover, analyze, (re)design, execute and monitor business processes. The successful development of high-quality process-oriented information systems, however, requires a coherent mixture of methods, tools, and techniques originating not only from the BPM but also from other engineering disciplines, such as software engineering.

Software engineering has long been a source of inspiration for the BPM field. However, BPM also offers novel approaches that bring fundamental changes to the way the process-oriented systems are designed, implemented and maintained. Particularly the paradigm shift towards more agile, participative and stakeholder-driven BPM relates to many Software Development topics like Reactive Programming, Microservices, or Agent Technology.

Hence, mutual effort could be worthwhile to bring benefit to both communities.

We invite researchers and practitioners to contribute to the special session on the practical and theoretical aspects of the BPM, particularly those that are in relation to software engineering methods, techniques and tools, and their applications in implementing “process-oriented systems”. Contributions that would raise discussions on the possibilities to integrate approaches in the BPM and software engineering fields are encouraged.

The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Requirements definition, design, implementation, testing, deployment, and maintenance of “process-oriented information systems”
  • Business process lifecycle management (possibly in relation to Software management)
  • Business process modeling (possibly in relation to Requirements engineering, Software modeling and design)
  • Business process design and execution (possibly in relation to Model-based software development)
  • Business process improvement (possibly in relation to Software process improvement)
  • Business process implementation (possibly in relation to Reactive Programming, Microservices, Service-based systems & SOA)
  • Various Aspects of interfacing BPM with Agent Technologies (agent types, frameworks, notations, interface definition languages, APIs, architectures, schemes, transformation techniques a.t.l.)
  • BPM Systems (possibly in relation to Software development)
  • Agile BPM (possibly in relation to Agile software development)
  • Business process model quality (possibly in relation to Software [model] quality)
  • Business process model understandability (possibly in relation to Software [model] understandability)
  • Business process maintainability (possibly in relation to Software maintainability)
  • Business process maturity (possibly in relation to Software process maturity)
  • Organizational, people and cultural aspects of BPM
  • Business models and business processes
  • Business process architecture
  • Cross-organizational BPM
  • Adaptive Case Management
  • Stakeholder-driven BPM
  • Business process and software evolution
  • BPMN and UML
  • Robotic Process Automation (RPA)
  • BPM and AI

In particular, we encourage submissions of experience or application papers that incorporate case studies, focus groups, Delphi studies, surveys, or qualitative methods, and employing design science research or action research methodologies.

The conference proceedings in the last years have been published by the IEEE Computer Society. The format is the IEEE two-column proceedings format (8 pages for full papers and 4 pages for short papers). Submission will be handled via EasyChair (; please find general submission information for SEAA on the conference homepage (

Please note that it is planned to select best papers among all tracks of SEAA and present them with an award. A selection of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for tentative publication in a requested Special Issue of a Journal (under negotiation).
