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:

14th International Workshop on Business Process Intelligence (BPI)
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.

11th Workshop on Social and Human Aspects of Business Process Management (BPMS2)
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 (PODS4H)
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.

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).

1st International Workshop on Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context in Business Process Management (CCBPM)
organized by: Jianmin Wang, Michael Sheng, Shiping Chen, 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.

Joint Business Processes Meet the Internet-of-Things / Process Querying Workshop (BP-Meet-IoT / PQ)
organized by: Agnes Koschmider, Massimo Mecella, Estefanía Serral, Victoria Torres, Artem Polyvyanyy, Arthur ter Hofstede, Claudio Di Ciccio

This joint BP-Meet-IoT / PQ Workshop brings together practitioners and researchers that are interested in IoT-based business processes (state of ongoing research, industry needs, future trends, and practical experiences) and process querying (automated methods for the inquiry, manipulation, and update of models and data of observed and envisioned processes).

1st Declarative/Decision/Hybrid Mining and Modelling for Business Processes (DeHMiMoP)
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.

Joint Requirements Engineering and Business Process Management Workshop / Education Forum (REBPM / EdForum)
organized by: Banu Aysolmaz, Rüdiger Weißbach, Onur Demirörs, Fethi Rabhi, Wasana Bandara, Helen Paik, Cesare Pautasso

This joint workshop brings together practitioners and researchers interested in requirements engineering and education in BPM. The workshop thus concentrates on the interrelations between RE and BPM, with a focus on agile and flexible BPM. 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, and on effective education and training methods for developing BPM professionals.
