The BPMDS (Business Process Modeling, Development, and Support) series focuses on business processes and their IT support. Specifically, the topics relate to business process modeling, business process support, and requirements on business processes. The continued interest in these topics on behalf of the IS community is reflected by the success of the past BPMDS events.

BPMDS solicits papers related to Business Process Modeling, Development and Support (BPMDS) in general, using quality as a main selection criterion. As a working conference, we would like to attract papers describing mature research. Still, to encourage new and emerging challenges and research directions in the area of business process modeling, development and support, we accept idea papers around a unique focus theme that changes every year.

Full research papers and experience reports are not required to be directly connected to this theme (they still need to be explicitly relevant to BPMDS though).

The focus theme for BPMDS'13 idea papers is "Coping with Complexity in Business Processes".

More information and a detailed list of topics for regular papers are available on the BPMDS Website
