Picture-Copyright Info 

The BPMDS working conference, sponsored by IFIP WG8.1, has been a fertile ground for influential research and a catalyst for pioneering developments in business process modeling and support. This year, we reaffirm our commitment to fostering cutting-edge research and facilitating robust discussions that shape the future of business processes. 

Recognizing the evolving nature of our field, we introduce innovations to the submission process designed to enhance participation and engagement. We invite contributions that span completed research, work-in-progress, and formative ideas. We encourage submissions that not only reflect on the established foundations of BPMDS, but also explore new paradigms, methodologies, and applications. Whether through the lens of AI and machine learning, process mining, human-centric approaches, or the implications of digital assistants such as ChatGPT, we seek to reflect the dynamic and diverse nature of our community.
