Call for Sponsors

BPM 2013 is the eleventh edition of the reference conference for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process Management (BPM). The conference covers all aspects of BPM, including theory, models, techniques, architectures, systems, and empirical studies, and engages the most renowned representatives of the BPM community worldwide in talks, tutorials, and scientific discussions.

BPM 2013 will take place in Beijing, the capital of China, and it will be the first edition of the BPM conference series in Asia. BPM 2013 will be organized by the Tsinghua University, China, in cooperation with research and industry leaders from major universities and companies worldwide.

The conference attracts in excess of 200 delegates from all across the globe, with a split of 70%-to-30% between academia and industry. Industry delegates range from representatives of major BPM vendors and consultancy firms to process owners and analysts from various companies engaged in BPM programs.

We propose to continue the BPM tradition of rich and diverse events surrounding the core technical program, including workshops, industrial panel, tutorials, demonstrations, and doctoral consortium.

Tow special co-location events, AP-BPM 2013 and CBPM 2013, will attract more BPM people from Asia-pacific area. AP-BPM 2013, the 1st Asia-Pacific BPM conference, will attract more researchers from Asia and Australia to BPM 2013 (about 50 delegates). CBPM 2013, the 3rd edition of Chinese BPM conference, would increase the appeal for the BPM conference among academic and industry representatives from China (around 80 representatives).
