We invite submissions in the following categories:
- Position papers raising relevant questions in the workshop area, identifying problems and providing a glimpse of solution for a given problem. Representing a basis for discussion, a position paper does not necessarily need to include solutions to its stated problems. Position papers must not exceed 4 pages.
- Idea papers exploring the history, successes, and challenges for various non-workflow approaches to BPM and outlining research roadmaps for the future. Contrary to short position papers, idea papers should provide the in-depth analysis of a problem, review its existing solutions, demonstrate insufficiency of these solutions and suggest new (yet unevaluated but well argued) solutions. Idea papers must not exceed 12 pages.
- Experience reports presenting challenges encountered in practice, their related case studies, success and failure stories. An experience report should clearly describe the working context, and focus on the problem and on the lessons learned. Experience reports should be complete and allow for rigorous testing of research theories methods and tools. Experience reports must be limited to 5-12 pages.
- Research papers reporting original results in the area addressed by the workshop. A research paper should clearly describe the problem tackled, explore the relevant state of the art, describe the proposed solution and provide a preliminary validation of this solution. Research papers must not exceed 12 pages.
Papers have to present original research/practical contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere. All papers should be submitted in the new LNBIP format (see http://www.springer.com/series/7911 for details). The selection will consider relevance to the main topics as well as potential to generate relevant discussions. To submit your paper, please, follow the reference to the easychair submission system: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=acm2012
