BPM 2018 - Mini-Sabbaticals

BPM2018 organization has initiated a program for Mini-Sabbaticals. The program is offered as an opportunity to extend your stay in Australia in order to build your research contacts network, collaborate, and potentially also arrange future sabbatical visits. The extended BPM community in Australia is large and offers a diverse set of strengths, often supported by world-class facilities and large groups of staff and students. The duration of the visit is up to you and so are the activities you wish to undertake such as guest presentations, working with PhD students, developing joint papers etc.

There is no financial support for the mini-sabbatical program. An invitation letter can be provided for visa or approval purposes, if required, by the hosting institution once a visit has been confirmed.

The table below provides an overview of the universities contributing to this initiative. All of these institutions are excited about welcoming you in Australia. If you are interested in collaborating with any of the researchers at these universities then please reach out to them directly. If you have any questions about the mini-sabbatical program, please contact: bpm2018.sabbaticals@cse.unsw.edu.au.

            The Department of Computing at Macquarie University is part of the Faculty of Science and Engineering. It offers comprehensive research programs across the information communication technologies spectrum. In the context of business processes, the Department of Computing’s research interests include business-process and case management, process data analyitcs (e.g. data-driven approaches that focus on identification, measurement, analysis, and improvement of business processes), workflow management and process mining.


            Research related to Business Process Management at The University of Queensland is being undertaken by School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering and the UQ Business School, with the two schools enjoying close collaboration on various BPM topics including business process compliance, process model understanding, business process change management, process improvement and innovation. The joint research of both groups was awarded ERA 5 in 2012 and 2015, as part of the Australian Research Council's Excellence in Research Australia program, making it one of six leading groups Australia wide in the area of Information Systems.

            The School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney), also commonly referred to as UNSW Computing, is part of the Faculty of Engineering. Founded in 1991, it is one of the largest schools of our kind in Australia. The research in our school focuses in areas such as Service Oriented Computing, Software Engineering, Artificial Intelligence, Databases, Embedded and Operating Systems, Networks, Programming Languages and Theory. In particular, the Service Oriented Computing Research Group (SOCR) aims to pursue long-term research in Web service engineering and management, business processes, business intelligence, service and process analytics, cloud service engineering and management. SOCR’s presence has enabled our school to move rapidly – concurrently developing research, teaching, postgraduate supervision capability and leadership in service-oriented systems engineering and management.
