2018 International Workshop on Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context in
Business Process Management (CCBPM2018,http://itseg.org/ccbpm2018/) will be
held in conjunction with 2018 International Conference on Business Process
Management (BPM2018,http://bpm2018.web.cse.unsw.edu.au/) at Sydney,
Australia on September 10, 2018.

The goal of CCBPM2018 is to promote the role of emerging computing
paradigms such as Mobile-Cloud Computing, Edge Computing, especially Fog
Computing, and Context in business process management (BPM) by discussing
(1) what the distributed computing and 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
these emerging computing paradigms and context (e.g. context-aware fog
computing based workflow system) may solve. We are looking for extension of
business processes and workflows like Fog/context-based BPM and workflow,
and if possible, contextualized Fog BPM and workflow systems. After the
previous CCBPM events CCBPM2013 (October 28th, 2013, Annecy, Haute-Savoie,
France), CCBPM2014 (August 27th, 2014, Beijing, China), and CCBPM2015
(November 4th, 2015, Shanghai, China), CCBPM2018 will be extended in its
scope to accommodate the latest progress in computing paradigms especially
on Fog Computing.

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

Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context based BPM/workflow: concepts and
theory, e.g.

Context-centric flexibility, adaptability and evolution in BPM
Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud based BPM and Workflow as a Service
Knowledge and reasoning representation for business process
Security, privacy and trust in Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud/Context-based BPM
Other socio-technical aspects of BPM/workflow in the Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud
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
Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context-based workflows and applications,

Business and scientific workflows in the Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud
Decision support systems for Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud based BPM
People-/knowledge-intensive process
Crowdsourcing and process based on social networks
Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context based workflow design, execution
and scheduling, e.g.

Context and Quality-of-Service constraints for workflow design
Workflow verification and generation with context and QoS constraints
Load balancing and scheduling of Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud workflows
Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud/Context-based process mining
Submission Guidelines

All workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop
proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information
Processing (LNBIP). These proceedings will be made available to all
registered participants approximately four months after the workshops,
while preliminary proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.

Selected papers will be recommended to a journal special issue of Future
Generation Computer Systems (
https://www.journals.elsevier.com/future-generation-computer-systems) upon
significant extension.

Submissions must be original contributions that have neither been published
previously nor submitted to other conferences or journals while being
submitted to CCBPM 2018. Submissions must be formatted according to
Springer’s LNCS formatting guidelines. Submissions must be in English and
must not exceed 12 pages.


Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via the CCBPM2018
EasyChair submission site:
