BPM 2018
   Sydney, Australia. September 9-14, 2018



The 16th conference in the field of Business Process Management (BPM 2018) will be complemented by several workshops. The following workshops will take place in conjunction with BPM 2018:

1st International Workshop on Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context in Business Process Management (CCBPM2018)
organized by: Jianmin Wang, Michael Sheng, Xiao Liu, James Xi Zheng

The goal of CCBPM2018 is to promote the role of emerging computing paradigms such as Mobile-Cloud Computing, ​Edge/Fog Computing, and Context in Business Process Management (BPM) by discussing what opportunities and challenges the emerging computing paradigms and context-aware technologies can bring to BPM, and what are the novel use cases​ and state-of-the-art solutions.​
2nd International Workshop on Business Processes Meet the Internet-of-Things (BP-Meet-IoT)
organized by: Agnes Koschmider, Massimo Mecella, Estefanía Serral, Victoria Torres

The second international Workshop on BP-Meet-IoT seeks to attract novel research at the intersection of the BPM and IoT areas by bringing together practitioners and researchers from both communities that are interested in making IoT-based business processes a reality. BP-Meet-IoT will discuss the current state of ongoing research, industry needs, future trends, and practical experiences.
14th International Workshop on Business Process Intelligence (BPI’18)
organized by: Boudewijn van Dongen, Jan Claes, Jochen De Weerdt, Andrea Burattin

This year's BPI Workshop is a two day event focusing particularly on process mining in the context of big data. The workshop has a long tradition at the BPM conference and will, as before, be featuring: the presentation of interesting research papers in the BPI domain; the BPI Challenge 2018, with data provided by the German company Data Experts; the IEEE Task Force meeting; and the Process Mining Reception.
6th Declarative/Decision/Hybrid Mining and Modelling for Business Processes (DeHMiMoP 2018)
organized by: Claudio Di Ciccio, Jan Vanthienen, Tijs Slaats, Dennis Schunselaar, Søren Debois

In Business Process Management (BPM) and its life-cycle phases — identification, discovery, analysis, redesign, implementation and monitoring — most processes and business process models involve rules and decisions that describe the premises and possible outcomes of specific situations. To that extent, declarative approaches such as Declare or DCR Graphs have been proposed to model control-flows, languages such as DMN have been introduced to model decisions, and hybrid approaches have been devised to combine them with existing imperative languages such as BPMN. This workshop aims at providing a platform for the discussion, introduction, and integration of ideas related to the decision- and rule- perspectives on process modelling and mining. The objectives are to extend the reach of the BPM audience towards the decisions and rules community, and increase the integration between imperative, declarative and hybrid modelling perspectives.
11th Workshop on Social and Human Aspects of Business Process Management (BPMS2’18)
organized by: Rainer Schmidt, Selmin Nurcan

BPMS 2018 explores how social software interacts with business process management, how business process management has to change to comply with weak ties, social production, egalitarianism and mutual service, and how business processes may profit from these principles. Furthermore, the workshop investigates human aspects of Business Process Management such as new user interfaces e.g. augmented reality and voice bots.
1st International Workshop on Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare (PODS4H18)
organized by: Jorge Munoz-Gama, Carlos Fernandez-Llatas, Niels Martin, Owen Johnson

PODS4H18 aims at providing a high-quality forum for interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners (both data/process analysts and medical audience) to exchange research findings and ideas on healthcare process analysis techniques and practices. PODS4H research includes a wide range of topics from process mining techniques adapted for healthcare processes, to practical issues on implementing PODS methodologies in healthcare centers’ analysis units.

3rd International Workshop on Process Querying (PQ 2018)
organized by: Artem Polyvyanyy, Arthur ter Hofstede, Claudio Di Ciccio

PQ 2018 aims to provide a high quality forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange research findings and ideas on technologies and practices in the area of process querying. Process querying studies automated methods for the inquiry, manipulation, and update of models and data of observed and envisioned processes, as well as relationships thereof, with the ultimate goal of converting process-related information into decision making capabilities.
5th International Workshop on Interrelations between Requirements Engineering and Business Process Management (REBPM’18)
organized by: Banu Aysolmaz, Rüdiger Weißbach, Onur Demirörs, Fethi Rabhi

RE and BPM are strongly interrelated while methods and processes differ. Agile principles are used in software engineering for a long time but recently started to be utilized in the BPM field. Flexibility in processes also has rising importance. The focus of our workshop is on the interrelations between RE and BPM domains with a focus on agile and flexible BPM.
2nd International Workshop on Quality Data for Process Analysis (QD-PA)
organized by: Moe Thandar Wynn, Marco Comuzzi, Minseok Song, Lijie Wen

Despite the fact that organizations collect a plethora of process data, poor data quality still poses significant hurdles to successfully translating process data into actionable business insights. The 2nd International Workshop on Quality Data for Process Analytics (QD-PA 2018) aims to provide a high quality forum for researchers and practitioners to exchange research findings and ideas on technologies and practices to achieve high-quality data for business process analysis.
1st International Workshop on Multi-Level Business Process Management (MLPM 2018)
organized by: Georg Grossmann, Tony Clark, Ulrich Frank, Vinay Kulkarni

MLPM 2018 focuses on advanced approaches to meta-modelling of processes. It aims at investigating the management of a hierarchy of knowledge about business processes, applying multi-level modelling techniques on business processes, and addressing challenges in that context.
1st International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Business Process Management (AI4BPM)
organized by: Richard Hull, Riccardo De Masellis, Krzysztof Kluza, Fabrizio Maria Maggi, Chiara Di Francescomarino

The goal of AI4BPM is to establish a forum for researchers and professionals interested in understanding, envisioning and discussing the challenges and opportunities of moving from current, largely programmatic approaches for BPM, to emerging forms of AI-enabled BPM. This workshop represents the union of two workshops held at BPM 2017, namely Business Process Innovation with Artificial Intelligence (BPAI) and Cognitive Business Process Management (CBPM).
