Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished research papers.

We will accept different types of contributions:

  • Research papers, up to 12 pages, describing original and novel research work, including research results and evaluations. Research papers should not have been published or submitted for publication elsewhere.

  • Experience papers, up to 12 pages, describing experiences with the novel application of AI techniques to BPM. Such papers should include clear descriptions of the motivations underlying the use of AI for BPM, the value obtained through the use of AI, and the challenges that needed to be overcome. Experience papers should not have been published or submitted for publication concurrently elsewhere.

  • Challenge Statements, at least 4 and up to 6 pages, presenting a position on issues related to the topics of the workshop. These statements would lead to interesting discussions by raising key questions, controversial point of views, challenges, and ideas to address the identified issues.


Papers should be written in English, following Springer LNCS style - including all text, references, appendices, and figures. For formatting instructions and templates, see the Springer Web page: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. Submitted papers will be evaluated by at least three members of the AI4BPM international Program Committee. The workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). According to Springer's policy, the acceptance rate will be lower than or at most equal to 50%. For inclusion in the workshop proceedings, at least one author per accepted paper must register and participate in the workshop. Depending on the quality of the submissions, we also consider publishing long versions of the papers in a journal Special Issue.

Submissions should be made via the Easychair system through the AI4BPM submission page by selecting the option "6th International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence for Business Process Management".
