Call for Industry Track – Int. Conference on Business Process Management (BPM)2016
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 20-22 September 2016

The annual BPM conference is the premium forum for researchers, practitioners and developers in the field of Business Process Management (BPM). The objective is to explore and exchange knowledge in this field through scientific talks, industry discussions, technical tutorials and panels. The conference covers all aspects of BPM research and practice, including theory, management, applications and technology, and brings together the most renowned representatives of the scientific BPM community worldwide.BPM 2016 will feature a rich program including a dedicated an industry track.

While BPM as an industry practice anda scientific field has significantly matured and increased its span, it is not yet an established organizational management discipline, along other disciplines such as project management or risk management. Fostering true innovation rather than only incremental change, capitalizing on big data opportunities and accounting for processes that are increasingly flexible and generative rather than structured and stable, are some of the challenges that BPM needs to overcome in order to establish its firm position within organizations.

These challenges add to existing areas of interest and relevance to industry andBPMresearch. They also attest to an increasingly interdisciplinary nature of BPM, which transcends its original scope at the intersection of information technology, organizational management and industrial engineering, to embrace other disciplines such as behavioural science, big data, operations management, social computing, cloud computing, theory of processes and many more.

BPM 2016 will take place in Rio de Janeiro, the second largest city in Brazil, best known for its carnival atmosphere, its passion for soccer and music, and its pristine nature with stunning beaches and tropical forests. Rio never fails to impress its visitors with its modern outlook that reflects its evolution throughout the years, but also with its historic sites and overjoyed attitude of the locals. We welcome you to participate in the most important conference on BPM, and to contribute in the industry track.


A separate industry track will host papers that specifically report on problems and experiences related to the deployment of BPM methods and tools in practice. These papers will be reviewed by a separate committee including representatives from industry, and assessed on the basis of their practical relevance rather than their scientific merit.
