The Business Process Modeling, Design and Support (BPMDS) working conference celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019.

• Variability and adaptability of business process models

• Methods for the process of process modeling and its optimizations

• Social information systems and their applications

• Process mining

• Business process change management and governance issues

• Enhancing creativity in business processes

• How to foster quality, flexibility, compliance, and security…

• …and at the same time reduce cost and processing time?


• New paradigms and architectures for Business Process executions

• Location and context dependence of business processes.

• Cross-organizational processes

• Data-intensive business processes

Models and Notations

• Standard and non-standard perspectives on business processes

• Meta-model and notation extensions

• New modeling languages and notations

• Domain-specific modeling languages

• Reference models

Business Process Support

• Foundations for simulating or executing business processes

• Context-aware work allocation in business processes

• Actor support vs. control support in business processes

• New platforms such as blockchains and smart contracts.

Transformative BPMDS

This year‘s topic theme “Transformative BPMDS” is investigating the transformative effects of emerging influential approaches and technologies in conjunction with Business Process Modeling, Design and


• Artificial Intelligence fosters the automation of business processes.

• Decentralized architectures and trust mechanisms such as blockchains enable the extension of business processes to quickly integrate new process partners.

• Voice assistants (e. g. Alexa, Siri) and augmented reality significantly increase the quality and the types of interactions with users in business processes.

• Internet of Things integrates increasingly intelligent devices into business processes.

• Social Information Systems support paradigms such as weak ties, social production, and egalitarian decisions.

• Cloud-services and mobile technologies enable the pervasiveness of business processes and independence from a geographic location.

The topic theme is mandatory for Idea Paper submissions, all other submissions are free to address any topic related to the fields of Business Process Modeling, Development and Support.


You are invited to submit a paper that concerns the topics mentioned above and all other topics related to business process modeling, development and support. Three categories of submissions are welcome:

1) Completed research papers (technical papers or empirical evaluation

papers) should report results in an advanced stage, including at least partial evaluation.

2) Experience reports present work completed or being completed in the context of a real-life organization. The work should have some practical goal, pure research purpose does not fall in the category \”Experience report\”.

3) Idea papers related to the focus theme “Transformative BPMDS” should address completely new research positions or approaches, demonstrating the shortcomings of current methods, tools, meta-models, etc.

Full papers with up to 15 pages long or short papers with up to 8 pages can be submitted to these categories. Submissions should follow the guidelines in http://www.bpmds.org/guidelines and adhere to the formatting instructions at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. Please submit your paper in PDF format through the conference management system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpmds19. The work must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Accepted submissions will be presented during the working conference, and full papers will be published in a Springer LNBIP proceedings volume. Accepted short papers will be published in a CEUR online proceedings volume. After the

BPMDS’19 conference, selected papers can be published as extended versions in a special issue of the International Journal on Software and Systems Modeling (SoSyM, www.sosym.org). Note that the topic theme “Transformative BPMDS” is suggested to make this year’s edition of BPMDS a special forum for this theme, however, it is mandatory for “idea paper” submissions only.

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

nineteen events from 1998 to 2018. 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 are:

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: http://www.bpmds.org/history.
