CALL FOR PAPERS CBPM’13  (Apologies for cross-posting)

Please consider to contribute to and/or forward to the appropriate groups the following opportunity to submit and publish original scientific results to CONTEXT-2013 Workshop Context for Business Process Management (CBPM’13, http://grid.lzu.edu.cn/psrl/cbpm). Due to multiple requests, the submission deadline has been extended to August 8th, 2013 (firmed deadline).

Call For Paper: CBPM’13

1st International Workshop on

Context for Business Process Management

held with CONTEXT-2013<http://www.polytech.univ-savoie.fr/?context2013> Conference

Annecy, Haute-Savoie, France, October 28-29, 2013



The goal of the workshop is to promote the role of context in business process management (BPM) by discussing (1) what the context community can bring to BPM community, including business and scientific workflow management; and (2) What are the challenges of BPM and workflow system that BPM community think context (context-based, context-aware, etc.) may solve. We arelooking for extension of business processes and workflows like context-based BPM, context-based workflow, and if possible,contextualized workflow.

Technical issues addressed

BPM has been referred to as a "holistic management" approach to aligning an organization's business processes with the needs of users. It promotes business effectiveness and efficiency while striving for innovation, flexibility, and integration with technology.However, the challenge for a large use of business process is the failure in addressing both the dynamic execution environment (i.e. grid and cloud) and the elastic requirement of users (i.e., logic of use). Two lines of research emerge to address this problem. Upstream, researchers try to make explicit the contextualization process in designing flexible and elastic business process forprocess optimization and reuse. Downstream, new technology such as cloud computing could bring a promising orchestration ofbusiness process but suppose a revision of BPM architecture.

The technical issues to be addressed are: Where context may intervene for operationalizing business process? What must be the impact of context in the design of business process? What would be a context-aware BPM? How must intervene context on BPM in the cloud? What kinds of context constraints and middleware should be integrated with the business process? Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of BPM, the workshop also encourages submissions that embrace other disciplines such as Workflow Management, Information Systems and IT Management, Data and Knowledge Management, Web/Software Engineering, Service-Oriented Computing, Social Computing, Big Data, etc. The key criteria for acceptance are excellence and answering challenges specific to the field of context for BPM and even in the cloud computing paradigm.

The workshop solicits original papers on a broad range of topics, including but not limited to:

•           Context and BPM/workflow: concepts and theory, e.g.

•  Context-centric flexibility, adaptability and evolution in BPM

•  Context-based BPM as a Service or Workflow as a Service

•  Knowledge and reasoning representation for business process

•  Security, privacy and trust in Context-based BPM

•  Other socio-technical aspects of BPM/workflow

•           Context-aware business process/workflow, e.g.

•  Context for Mobile and Ubiquitous applications

•  Context-aware BPM for Authentication, Authorisation and Accounting

•  Context-aware recommendation process

•  Context for dynamic selection of web services

•           Context-based cloud workflows and applications, e.g.

•  Context-based scientific workflows in the cloud

•  Decision support systems for cloud-based BPM

•  People-/knowledge-intensive process

•  Crowdsourcing and process based on social networks

•           Context as constraints for workflow design, execution and scheduling, e.g.

•  Automatic workflow verification and generation with context constraints

•  Context-based load balancing of workflow engines

•  Context and Quality-of-Service constraints for workflow design

•  Context-based process mining


Workshop submission will be electronic, in pdf format only. Submitted papers must not exceed 12 pages and should conform to Springer LNCS style (see below). Submissions should include authors’ names and affiliation and full references. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop and the main conference, and present the contribution at the workshop in order to be published in the workshop proceedings. Detailed formatting and submissions instructions, as well as LaTeX and Word templates, can be accessed through Springer's information for LNCS authors<http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors?SGWID=0-40209-0-0-0>.

Paper submission will be handled using EasyChair: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cbpm

Workshop proceedings

The workshop proceedings will be published as part of the CONTEXT 2013 workshop proceedings. Distinguished papers, after further revisions, will be recommended to a special issue in the International Journal of Computational Science and Engineering<http://www.inderscience.com/jhome.php?jcode=IJCSE> (EI index).

Workshop format

The general organization of the workshop is the following. First a tutorial will introduce BPM and cloud-computing domains and their challenges. Second, participants will present their position statement. Three, a general discussion will focus on proposals of the context community for the BPM community under the cloud computing paradigm.

Review process

Three members of the program committee will review each submission. A review form will direct reviewers to evaluate submissions for appropriateness, technical strength, originality, presentation, and overall evaluation, as well as recording the reviewer’s confidence in the topic. Each category will be rated on a scale from 1 to 5. Furthermore, we will emphasise that reviewers must provide constructive notes and remarks to help contributors to improve their current and future submissions. The committee will be asked to give extensive comments. The number of accepted papers will depend on the number of suitable submissions. To assure sufficient discussion time, at most 12 contributions will be accepted for oral presentation, with additional poster acceptances possible.

Important Dates

•      July 20, 2013 August 8th, 2013- Firmed Submission Deadline

•      September 10th, 2013 - Notification of workshop paper acceptance

•      October 1st, 2013 - Camera-ready submission
