5th Emerging Trends and Challenges in Business Process Management (ETCBPM)


Business Process Management (BPM), as a field of both research and practice, has been maturing and increasing its span. However, more than improvement, we need to foster true innovation in business processes that should be increasingly adaptive, flexible and generative rather than structured, formalized and stable. That will require BPM to take advantage of recent breakthroughs in business intelligence, knowledge management, big data, cloud computing, social computing, internet of things or complex event processing to name a few. Information Systems research can significantly contribute to the future of BPM addressing both technical and organizational issues.

This workshop explicitly encourages papers that report on novel applications of concepts, theories and technologies that are of interest to IS scholars reflecting emerging trends and challenges in business process management research and practice.
