Call for Demos

Demos submission web site is:

The BPM 2013 Demo Track is intended to showcase innovative Business Process Management (BPM) tools and applications that may originate either from research initiatives or from industry. The Demonstration Track will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging technologies with researchers and practitioners in the BPM field.

Demo paper submissions are also encouraged for tools or applications that have already been demonstrated in previous BPM Demo tracks. Demo papers should be original. If a demo paper has previously been published for the same tool or application, the 2013 submission should add value to the previous publication, e.g. by pointing out significant new tool features and/or new practical applications.

Demo papers should comprise the following sections in no more than 5 pages and must adhere to the LNCS submission formatting guidelines:

  • Title, authors list and their affiliation.
  • Abstract: A brief description of the demo, together with a statement on how conference participants will benefit from attending the demo and for what target audience the demo will most likely be of interest.
  • Maturity: Information illustrating the maturity, complexity and robustness of the tool (e.g., availability of the tool, list of features, supported use cases, number and types of users, etc.)
  • Significance to the BPM field: Describe the innovations of the tool to the BPM community, its main features. If applicable, include brief descriptions of case studies performed using the tool, provide scalability data or pointers indicating where readers can find more information about these case studies.
  • Screen-cast: In order to maximize your chances of getting your main message across, it is strongly recommended that you include a link to a screencast demonstrating your tool, preferably including voice. If you cannot provide a screencast, you should consider an alternative way of giving the possibility to the reviewers to get an impression of your tool, such as a detailed download and setup guide, a walkthrough based on a concrete example, recipes of the core functionalities, etc.
  • Link: If available, a link to a Web page where to download or use the tool.

Demo papers should be submitted through the BPM2013 Demos submission system hosted by EasyChair. All demo submissions will be reviewed by the demo reviewing committee. Accepted Demo papers will be published in the online proceedings.

Each tool/application is presented plenary using two minute teasers. Then, multiple rooms are used to make short concurrent demonstrations of 15 minutes each. Depending on how many accepted demonstrations, each tool or application can be demonstrated multiple times, thus requiring the presence of Demo authors all along both Demo days.
