Dr. Boris Shishkov, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences / IICREST, Bulgaria

Keynote Lecturers:
Prof. Dr. Norbert Gronau, University of Potsdam, Germany (Title: A Visionary Way to Novel Process Optimization Techniques)
Prof. Dr. Oscar Pastor, Polytechnic University of Valencia, Spain (Title: Available soon)
Prof. Dr. Alexander Verbraeck, Delft University of Technology, The Netherlands (Title: Real-Time Inter-Enterprise Coordination in a Highly Dynamic World)

The symposium is organized and sponsored by the international institute IICREST and technically co-sponsored by BPM-D. Cooperating organizations are: AUTH - Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, TU Delft - Delft University of Technology, CTIT - the U-Twente Centre for Telematics and Information Technology, IMI - the BAS Institute of Mathematics and Informatics, SIKS - the Nederlands Research School for Information and Knowledge Systems, and AMAKOTA Ltd.

BMSD is a leading international discussion and knowledge dissemination forum that brings together Researchers and Practitioners interested in: (i) Modeling in general and in particular - Conceptual Modeling, Goal Modeling, Value Modeling, Business/Enterprise Modeling, Process Modeling, Model-Driven Engineering; (ii) Enterprise Engineering and its relation to Software Generation; (iii) Information Systems Architectures and Design. Each year, a special theme is chosen, for making presentations and discussions more focused. The theme of BMSD 2017 is:

Adequate business models are of huge importance not only for understanding and (re-)engineering an organization but also for automating (part of) its processes by means of software systems. Not grasping correctly and exhaustively a business system would inevitably lead to consequent software failures. It is therefore claimed that software generation should essentially have its roots in corresponding enterprise engineering models.

In 2017, BMSD will be held in Barcelona, Spain, following previous events in Greece (Rhodes, 2016), Italy (Milan, 2015), the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (Luxembourg, 2014), The Netherlands (Noordwijkerhout, 2013), Switzerland (Geneva, 2012), and Bulgaria (Sofia, 2011).

The BMSD'17 sessions will be held at Hesperia Sant Just NH Hotel. Hesperia Sant Just is an excellent conference facility in Barcelona, part of the Spanish NH Hotel Group. Barcelona is among the most popular cities in the World and also one of the top conference destinations, and this is because of Barcelona’s 2000+ years of history, its Medieval past, its artistic spirit, its impressive modernistic architecture (in some districts), its Gaudi and Miro heritage, the Mediterranean influence and cosmopolitanism, its scientific Community and ICT advances as well as successes in culture and sports.
