We are trying something unusual: two sets of papers, one set for Vancouver, and one for Austria, will be combined for judging and will be published in a single combined proceedings for discussion at the two events. We believe this will make it easier for Americans and Europeans to participate in the event. Both workshops are the same week. The entire call for papers below for convenience.
CALL FOR PAPERS: 2d International Workshop on
Adaptive Case Management and other non-workflow approaches to BPM
@EDOC 2013 http://planet-sl.org/edoc2013
Vancouver, BC, Canada, September 9,
Paper Submission Deadline: April 22, 2013
@OTM 2013 http://www.onthemove-conferences.org
Graz, Austria, September 11,
Paper Submission Deadline: May 25, 2013
A focus on agility requires a paradigm shift in BPM that promotes process execution rules being less prescriptive to give people the opportunity to creatively use their knowledge and experience in volatile environments.
The needs for paradigm shift has already been expressed by a strong practical movement called Adaptive Case Management (ACM) which “.. is information technology that exposes structured and unstructured business information (business data and content) and allows structured (business) and unstructured (social) organizations to execute work (routine and emergent processes) in a secure but transparent manner.” (http://www.xpdl.org/nugen/p/adaptive-case-management/public.htm)
While practitioners are trying to overcome the restrictions of workflow thinking, the research on the topic is somewhat lagging. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners to discuss theoretical and practical problems and solutions in the area of non-workflow based approaches to BPM in general, and ACM (as a leading movement) in particular. This workshop is aimed to promote new, non-traditional ways of modelling and controlling business processes, the ones that suit better the dynamic environment in which contemporary enterprises and public organizations function.
We strongly encourage the submissions reporting a synergy of innovative research and best practices in the area of ACM and other non-workflow approaches to BPM, including human-centric BPM, data-centric BPM, event-driven BPM, knowledge-driven BPM, etc.
Examples of topics of interest are as follows:
· Theoretical views on business processes not based on the workflow
· Process management based on cooperation
· Non-prescriptive process specifications (e.g. constraint-based, declarative, etc.)
· Non-workflow based process modeling methodologies
· Agile business process management
· Forms of business process agility
· ACM vs. BPM
· Process support: Workflow-based information systems vs. Cooperative information systems
· Empirical studies of Case Management Processes
· Challenges and best practices in ACM
· Tools and applications for ACM support
· Is it possible to automate a non-workflow process without making it too much BPM?
The submission site https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaptivecm2013 is now open for submissions for both EDOC and OTM tracks.
In order to better coordinate both events, we encourage early abstract submissions for the OTM track! The AdaptiveCM calendar is:
AdaptiveCM@EDOC deadline for paper submissions: April 22, 2013
AdaptiveCM@OTM expected abstract submission: May 1, 2013
AdaptiveCM@OTM deadline for paper submissions: May 25, 2013
AdaptiveCM@EDOC workshop: September 9, 2013
AdaptiveCM@OTM workshop: September 11, 2013

Papers have to present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere.
All submissions should be prepared in publisher neutral format, according to the following guidelines:
· Text font size: 12pt
· Abstract (150 words max.)/ references font size: 10pt
· Page margins: left / right /top/bottom = 1 inch;

Abstracts and papers should be submitted to the following site: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=adaptivecm2013
CAMERA-READY AND PROCEEDINGS:
Authors of accepted papers will be requested to prepare their camera-ready versions according to the guidelines provided by a publisher: Springer or IEEE. For the moment, we consider a possibility to publish proceedings for both @EDOC and @OTM events in a single (independent) volume by Springer. The final instructions for camera-ready versions will be announced later.
