Business process management (BPM) is an established research domain for computer
science, information systems, and management scholars. The record number
and wide scope of submissions to the eighth installation of the International
Conference on Business Process Management was an indication of the vibrancy
of the area and the varied interests of BPM researchers. It is tradition that topical
workshops accompany the main BPM conference in order to allow groups
to coalesce around new research topics, to present emerging research issues, or
focus in depth on a particular area of research. BPM 2010 was accompanied
by nine workshops – some new, some well established with the stature of miniconferences.
In addition, a dedicated track for education papers complemented
the main research program. The workshops and education track attracted 143
submissions, out of which the respective Program Committees chose 66 papers
for presentation – a healthy acceptance ratio of 46% that rivals some mainstream
information systems conferences. The workshops were organized by an illustrious
group of BPM scholars with a global reach. We were particularly excited by
the first BPM workshop organized by the South American research community
– the First International Workshop on Reuse in BPM.
This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of nine international workshops held in Hoboken, NJ, USA, in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Business Process Management, BPM 2010, in September 2010. The nine workshops focused on Reuse in Business Process Management (rBPM 2010), Business Process Management and Sustainability (SusBPM 2010), Business Process Design (BPD 2010), Business Process Intelligence (BPI 2010), Cross-Enterprise Collaboration, People, and Work (CEC-PAW 2010), Process in the Large (IW-PL 2010), Business Process Management and Social Software (BPMS2 2010), Event-Driven Business Process Management (edBPM 2010), and Traceability and Compliance of Semi-Structured Processes (TC4SP 2010). In addition, three papers from the special track on Advances in Business Process Education are also included in this volume. The overall 66 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 143 submissions.
