The annual BPM conference is the leading forum in the field of Business Process Management (BPM). The conference aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from the industry and academia and provide them with a working environment to discuss the state-of-the-art, new research results and perspectives and applications related to business process management.

Following the tradition of previous editions, the 2017 conference, which will take place in Barcelona, Spain, from 10th to 15th of September, is seeking original proposals for tutorials and panels, which will complement the conference program. The tutorials will provide conference delegates with the opportunity to obtain an in–depth introduction to specific methods, techniques or tools in the BPM field.

We particularly encourage tutorial submissions on emerging aspects of BPM focusing on conceptual aspects, methods-techniques, and novel approaches as well as industry-based experiences. Panels, in turn, are open conversations where thought leaders discuss controversial topics or trends in BPM. Tutorials and panels are intended to be highly interactive, encouraging the audience to actively participate. Tutorials may last either 1.5 or 3 hours, whereas a panel is planned for up to 1.5 hours.

Proposals for tutorials should include the following information:

  • title
  • abstract and outline (1-2 pages)
  • intended audience
  • short bio of the presenters
  • intended duration (1.5 or 3 hours)

Proposals for panels should include the following information:

  • title
  • abstract, emphasising the controversial issues to be discussed (up to 1 page)
  • short bio of the moderator
  • list of potential panelists.
