Submission Instructions
Papers should be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS formatting guidelines (for instructions and style sheets see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html). Submissions must be in English and not exceed 16 pages of length. The title page must contain a short abstract clarifying the relation of the paper with the topics above. The paper must clearly state the problem being addressed, the goal of the work, the results achieved, and the relation to other work.

Industry papers must be clearly marked as such, so that they can be appropriately reviewed by the program committee. Concerning length and formatting, industry papers must follow the same rules and guidelines as research papers.

Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format via the BPM 2013 EasyChair submission site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=bpm2013

Submissions must be original contributions that have not been published previously, nor already submitted to other conferences or journals in parallel with this conference.

After Submission
Once the submission system is closed, we will contact all authors asking to help us provide the BPM community with a service that goes beyond the annual organization of the BPM conference series. Doing research is a collective effort that does not involve papers only. There are many other scientific resources, such as software tools, reusable code, data sets, slide sets, videos, etc., that are extremely valuable and that significantly contribute to the advancement of research. We would like to specifically focus on sharing software artifacts and data sets, which are among the most searched for but difficult to find resources, in order to facilitate the comparison of research approaches and results. In order to do so, we will ask authors to fill a simple post-submission questionnaire. Collected resources will be made publicly available to the community via the website http://bpm-conference.org. In addition, we would like to ask authors to identify the specific BPM use case your submission contributes to, so as to ease the review process and to start establishing a common understanding and conceptual framework for the discussion of BPM-related research.

Filling the questionnaire is mandatory for all submissions. Providing additional resources is, of course, optional.

Publication
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the conference and present the paper. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit a paper for a special issue of Information Systems (Elsevier).
