The 12th Business Process Management (BPM) took place at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) during the second week of September (7-9-2014 until 12-9-2014). Originally the conference was planned to take place in Haifa, but due to the unstable situation in southern Israel, BPM 2014 was relocated to Eindhoven. The decision was made less than a month before the start of the conference. Fortunately, the transition was smooth and, despite the difficult circumstances, the conference was very successful. Close to 200 participants joined the conference and enjoyed a fully loaded program with both scientific and social events. Normally, the conference attracts 250-350 people, but after months of uncertainty, a lower number of participants was to expected. Highlights were the main conference track, the 11 workshops, the 20 tool demos, the keynotes, and the social program that included a workshop dinner, a process mining party, a welcome reception, and a conference dinner at the DAF Museum. The varied program nicely illustrated that BPM research is rapidly developing, the fruitful discussions were very inspiring, and many new collaborations were initiated. Also see http://bpm2014.haifa.ac.il/ for the original website hosted by the team in Haifa. Hope to see you at BPM 2015 in Innsbruck (see http://bpm2015.q-e.at/ for more information).
BPM 2014 is the 12th conference in a series that provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process Management (BPM). Over the past decade, the conference has built its reputation by showcasing leading-edge research of the highest quality together with talks, tutorials and discussions by the most renowned thought leaders and innovators in the field. The BPM conference series embraces the diversity and richness of the BPM field and serves as a melting pot for experts from a mix of disciplines including Computer Science, Information Systems Management, Services Science and Technology Management. Given the increasing span of BPM, this year the conference opened up to a number of new topics that add to existing areas of interest and relevance to BPM research and industry. Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of BPM, the conference also encouraged submissions that embrace other disciplines such as Information Systems and IT Management, Data and Knowledge Management, Web/Software Engineering, Service-Oriented Computing, Social Computing, Cloud Computing, and many more.
