Papers should be submitted electronically as a self-contained PDF file via the submission system (through Easy Chair). Submissions must be original contributions that have not been published previously, nor already submitted to other conferences or journals in parallel with this workshop.

Special notes regarding teaching cases:

Simulating, well-structured teaching cases based on real-life or hypothetical cases that can assist in teaching important concepts in BPM are welcome.

  • Teaching cases must include teaching notes when originally submitted, and the teaching notes will be reviewed. Teaching notes will not be included in the Proceedings, but rather will be provided directly to instructors on request by case authors.
  • A teaching case must not exceed twelve (12) pages, and the required teaching note must not exceed five (7) pages. Both the teaching case and teaching note must conform to the format of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series by Springer.
  • This BPM Education Symposium uses the following criteria for reviewing teaching cases:
    • Case clarity: The case is clearly written and readable for a student audience.
    • Issue identification and development: The key issues in the case are well-developed and identifiable by a student reader, and are well connected to the BPM Discipline.
    • Completeness: The case includes the information necessary for conducting an appropriate analysis of the issue(s) raised.
    • Relevance: The case addresses a topic of importance to BPM practice. The students will learn something important from studying it.
    • Interest: The case is presented in an interesting way. It addresses a topic likely to sustain a student's interest. The instructor will find it interesting to teach.
    • Effectiveness of exhibits: The case exhibits are helpful to the student and useful for teaching the case.
    • Literature integration: The authors have effectively utilized existing literature (concepts, models, frameworks, news reports, etc.) for teaching the case.
    • Overall utility: The information provided is developed well enough to help an instructor in preparing to teach the case.


The papers accepted in the symposium will appear in the BPM workshop proceedings. All the workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-proceeding volume (to be sent around 4 months after the workshop) in their Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the workshop and present the paper.
