The Business Process Modeling, Development and Support (BPMDS) working conference has been held for over two decades, dealing with and promoting research on BPMDS. It has been a platform for a multitude of influential research papers. In keeping with its tradition, the working conference covers a broad range of theoretical and application-based research on BPMDS.

Starting with BPMDS 2023, we are introducing some innovations in the submission process that will make submission and participation even more attractive and accessible.

Two-Phase Submission Process

  1. Early-bird submissions: Papers submitted for this early deadline will receive additional attention from senior PC members, to help junior researchers flesh out their ideas. Submissions in this round may receive a conditional acceptance, after which the authors have additional time, until the regular submission deadline, to improve their work based on the received input.

  2. Regular submissions: Regular submissions of papers, following the usual review procedure.

  • Experience reports present work completed or being completed in the context of a real-life organization. The work should have some practical goals, and present lessons learned that can be applied in a generalized context.

  • Position papers should discuss new research positions or ideas, demonstrating the shortcomings of current solutions, or raise new problems to be addressed.

Papers for all types should be up to 15 pages (including references). The work must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere.
