(in conjunction with International Conference on Information Systems)

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss new research
directions in the area of business process management and business service
automation. A critical goal of the workshop is to cultivate high quality
research concerning Internet-enabled business processes and services, which
include new technological advances such as cloud computing, mobile
commerce, service virtualization, and big data analysis.

This workshop aims to extend the boundaries of research in business process
management by integrating new elements that have not been sufficiently
emphasized in the past.  The recent rapid advances in information systems
have created both challenges and opportunities to develop new business
services via innovative business processes.  For instance, we know how to
automate routine, formal business processes but have not really attempted
computerizing ad hoc processes that may emerge spontaneously and have short
life span. These may include examples like setting up ad hoc meetings that
may involve a number of people from different places, different IT devices
and platforms, an evolving agenda, a set of documents as inputs and outputs
and some decisions and outcomes. Such meetings are often very valuable but
also time consuming to organize and manage.

Another important area of interest of this workshop is to promote
theoretical efforts in business processes.  The business process modeling
and automation research has been largely driven by the need to solve
practical problems. There has been a lack of strong theories in this area
and we believe that it is essential to develop new theories about business
process and service automation. The Process Virtualization Theory (
http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=1085328), proposed by
Eric Overby, presents an excellent example of such theories and provides a
great starting point for a theoretical discussion at the workshop.

Given the nature and purposes of this workshop, we invite papers of no more
than five pages that are well articulated and formatted in *single line
spacing, Times New Roman, 12 pt, 1 inch margins*.  We particularly seek
position papers but also welcome conceptual papers with a strong
theoretical flavor, as well as completed research papers or
research-in-progress papers. Suggested research topics include, but not
limited to, the following ones:

·       Cloud computing and process management

·       Collaborative processes in social media

·       Coordination and cooperation mechanisms for process management

·       Data mining for process technologies and management

·       Financial service applications

·       Frameworks and methodologies for collaboration processes

·       Healthcare and process management

·       Human resource management under distributed process technologies

·       Metrics and measurements in business processes and services

·       Evaluations of business process and service implementations

·       Mobile commerce and process management

·       Organization and culture issues in process automation

·       Process competencies in information intensive businesses

·       Process management methodologies

·       Business process theories and applications

·       Technology and architecture issues in process driven organizations

·       Telecommuting and process modeling

·       Workflows in collaborative operations and systems

·       Consequences of process and service virtualization

·       Possible emergence of novel virtual intermediaries

·       Public policy implications
