Sponsor of the Demos: MySphera


The BPM 2017 Demo Track is intended to showcase innovative Business Process Management (BPM) tools and applications that may originate either from research initiatives or from industry. The Demonstration Track will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging technologies with researchers and practitioners in the BPM field.

Demo papers must present original, novel tools or a significant extension of previously demonstrated tools. In the latter case, there must be clear evidence of the value added to the previous version of the tool, e.g., by describing new tool features and/or its adaptation and use for new practical applications.

Demo papers should comprise the following sections in no more than 5 pages in PDF format and must adhere to Springer’s LNCS submission formatting guidelines (for instructions and style sheets see

  • Title, authors and affiliation.
  • Abstract: a brief description of the demo, together with a statement on how the conference participants will benefit from attending the demo and for what target audience the demo will most likely be of interest.
  • Significance to the BPM field: describe the innovations of the tool to the BPM community and its main features. If applicable, include a brief description of case studies performed using the tool, provide scalability data or pointers indicating where readers can find more information about these case studies.
  • Maturity: information illustrating the maturity, complexity and robustness of the tool (e.g., availability of the tool, list of features, supported use cases, number and types of users, etc.).
  • Screencast: a link to a screencast demonstrating the tool, preferably including voice – maximum of 25 minutes/video.
  • Link: if available, a link to a Web page where to download or use the tool.

Demo papers should be submitted through the BPM2017 Demos submission system hosted by EasyChair at All demo submissions will be reviewed by the demo reviewing committee. Accepted demo papers will be published as online CEUR proceedings.

Each tool/application will be presented plenary using one or two-minute teasers informing the audience about the available demos. The actual demonstrations will then be held in a separate session with all tools/applications being shown in parallel so that the audience can freely walk from demo to demo. Physical presence of at least one presenter per demo is mandatory.

The reviewing committee will also vote on the best demo to be granted the BPM 2017 Best Demo Award.
