6th International Workshop on the Interrelations between
Requirements Engineering & Business Process Management (REBPM)
in conjunction with the
17th International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2019)
2. September 2019
While Requirements Engineering (RE) is concerned with eliciting and managing requirements related to a particular (software) system, Business Process Management (BPM) deals with modeling and managing organizational processes and business objectives. Information technology is an enabler of business change, and business processes are often a starting point of RE. Thus, both domains are strongly interrelated while methods and processes differ. Influenced by the current trend of “digitalization“, the development of new business models comes into the focus of many organizations. New business models are often aligned to new ways in the integration of the customers, which have influence on processes and the way of RE. In this years workshop, we focus on the relationship of RE, BPM and business models.
We are calling for papers including but not restricted to the following topics;
- BPM and RE in the development and the lifecycle of (new) business models,
- BPM and RE with a focus on agile and flexible processes,
- Process mining and requirements analysis in the context of BPM,
- System and data requirements modelling for BPM,
- Agile methods and techniques for BPM,
- Flexibility in business processes and reflections on BPM,
- Analysis of the current BPM practices in organizations with respect to the above topics, such as case studies.
While the 1st REBPM workshop (@RE’14, Karlskrona) had the focus on the general relationship between BPM and RE, the 2nd REBPM workshop (@MOD’16, Karlsruhe) emphasized on documentation. The 3rd workshop (@BPM’16) discussed agility and its relationships to RE and BPM. The 4th workshop (@MOD’18) and the 5th workshop (@BPM’18) set the focus on digitization of organizations.
Workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP).
