BPM: Foundations, Engineering, Management
This paper reports on the introduction of a track system at the BPM conference series and the experiences made during the organization of BPM 2018, the first issue implementing the track system. By introducing dedicated tracks for foundations, engineering, and management, with dedicated evaluation criteria and program committees, the BPM steering committee aims at providing a fair chance for acceptance to all submissions to the conference. By introducing a management track, the conference reaches out to the management community, which investigates phenomena in business process management from a non-technical perspective that complements the technical orientation of traditional BPM papers. We elaborate on the background of and motivation for the track system, and we discuss the lessons learned in the first iteration of the track structure at BPM 2018.
