Pre-ICIS AIS SIGBPS Workshop on Business Processes and Services, Auckland, New Zealand, 10/1/2014

SIGBPS Workshop on Business Processes and Services
December 14, 2014, Auckland, New Zealand
Workshop Website:
(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 analytics.
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. 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.
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:
 Big data and process management
 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
