The BPMEA track aims at gathering researchers and practitioners around the broad topics of business processes and enterprise architecture with a special interest in modeling. These disciplines are quickly evolving and intertwining with each other, and are often referred to with the broad term of business modeling. While several researches are addressing these aspects, there is still a strong need of exploring new paths of improvement and consolidation.
We seek contributions in the areas of enterprise and systems architecture and modeling, multilevel models tracing and alignment, models transformation, IT & business alignment (both in terms of modeling and goals), tackling both technical (languages, systems, patterns, tools) and social (collaboration, human-in-the-loop) issues.
We seek original, unpublished contributions that are mainly focused on, but not necessarily limited to, the following topics:
- Models and architectures based on the abstraction of processes, services and events
- Business Processes Modeling and Management
- Business Process Management and Social Software
- Semantic Business Process
- Collaborative BPM
- Adaptive Case Management and other non-workflow approaches to BPM
- Enterprise and system modelling: languages, methods, tools
- Enterprise modelling patterns
- Collaborative enterprise modeling
- Model-driven approaches
- Service engineering
- Complex event processing and event-driven architectures
- Human and social aspects in enterprise and system modeling
- Mobile enterprise services and applications
- Enterprise 2.0 and beyond
- Business and IT architecture modernization
- Innovation process in enterprise architectures
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions:
- original and unpublished research;
- reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry;
- reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains.
Each submitted paper will undergo a (double) blind review process and will be refereed by at least three referees. To ease blind review, you shall remove author names from your paper before submitting it.
Accepted papers in all categories will be published in the ACM SAC 2017 proceedings.
The camera-ready version of the accepted paper should be prepared using the ACM format (guidelines are given on the SAC 2017 web site).
Accepted full papers should not exceed 6 pages in a double column format (with the option, for an additional per-page fee, to add 2 more pages).
Regular papers can be submitted online at https://www.softconf.com/h/sac2017/.
Papers for the Student Research Competition can be submitted online at https://www.softconf.com/h/sac-src2017/.
