2nd International Workshop on Process Modelling Support Systems (ProMoS 2015) at ECIS 2015

Call for Papers

Workshop Topic

Conceptual modelling in Business Process Management (BPM) is one of the core research areas of Information Systems (IS). A variety of different strategies for modelling support exists such as syntax-based auto-completion features, knowledge-based recommender systems, correctness and compliance checking, abstraction and matching, semantic and domain patterns, or Artificial Intelligence-based planning approaches. These mechanisms increasingly gain attention in the BPM and conceptual modelling community. In particular, modelling support mechanisms are intended to ease the model construction, maintenance and analysis phases typically following a mixed-initiative approach, where the human and the support system work in close co-operation. Due to the great variety of techniques and use cases of modelling support systems, research is scattered amongst different sub-communities of the large BPM and conceptual modelling communities and a common ground for discussion and empirical evaluation of these approaches is not yet established. Therefore, we aim to bring together researchers working on modelling support techniques to discuss corresponding novel approaches and possibilities to evaluate their feasibility, effectiveness, efficiency, and usability.
Therefore, contributors are invited to submit original research papers addressing relevant aspects of conceptual modelling support techniques in BPM. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Conceptual modelling support methods and strategies
  • Conceptual modelling support features and algorithms
  • Querying, filtering and ranking of results
  • Visualization techniques and user interface
  • Architectures and implementation issues
  • Empirical studies evaluating modelling support systems

Workshop Format

The workshop is planned as a full day event comprising three technical sessions. Also, an additional demo session is planned where contributors will have the opportunity to present their process modelling support tools. A tool presentation is accompanied by a short paper..

Submission Handling and Publication

The workshop papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers are planned be published as part of the CEUR Workshop Proceedings ( Two kinds of contributions are sought: short position papers including tool presentation papers (not to exceed 6 pages) describing particular challenges or experiences relevant to the scope of the workshop, and full research papers (not to exceed 12 pages) describing novel solutions to the scope of the workshop. We plan to furthermore publish selected full papers from the workshop in a special issue of an international journal. In particular, we apply for a special issue of the Business Information Systems Engineering (BISE) Journal. Papers should comply with the LNI formatting guidelines and be submitted via the ProMoS EasyChair Account.
