21st International Conference on Business Process Management

Call for Tutorials

The annual BPM conference is the leading forum for the Business Process Management community. In addition to the inspirational keynotes and scientific presentations of this conference, its tutorials provide a unique opportunity to learn from and engage with leading BPM experts in an area of contemporary BPM interest.

The 2023 edition of the conference will take place in Utrecht, The Netherlands, from the 11th to the 15th of September, and its tutorials need to be designed with academics, students and professionals in mind.

BPM 2023 seeks original and highly relevant proposals for tutorials to complement the conference program. The tutorials will provide conference participants with the opportunity to obtain an in-depth introduction to specific topics of growing interest within the broader field of BPM.

For the first time, the Call for Tutorials at the International BPM Conference will combine a dedicated call for speakers for three designated topics with an open call for BPM topics across any of the three tracks of the conference.

Dedicated Call:

In 2023, we are looking for individuals and teams of presenters who would like to offer a tutorial in one of the five dedicated areas below:

  • Natural language processing for BPM
  • Process mining on scale: How to mine process landscapes?
  • Process improvement and innovation: Techniques and facilitation
  • Public sector processes: Managing social, economic, and environmental processes
  • BPM paper reviews: A guide to constructive review practices
Open Call:

In addition, we encourage any tutorial submissions on emerging topics and aspects of the BPM discipline across all of the three tracks of the conference; Foundations, Engineering,  and Management.

Tutorials are intended to be highly interactive, educational, and should actively engage the audience to participate in the discussion. A full tutorial is expected to last 1.5 hours. Accepted tutorial speakers are expected to present a ‘short teaser’ within the conference program ahead of the full tutorial presentation to attract conference attendees to the tutorial. With the same intention, short (3 minute) videos of accepted tutorials will be made available on the BPM 2023 web page ahead of the conference.

Proposals for tutorials should include the following information:

  • Title
  • Presenter(s) and affiliation(s)
  • 200-word abstract highlighting why the tutorial is attractive to BPM 2023 participants – Why is it novel? What are key learning outcomes?
  • Outline of the content (max. 1 page)
  • Intended audience (for example: academics, practitioners, and students) and level of tutorial (basic, intermediate, advanced; any prerequisites?)
  • Short description of planned activities to engage the audience (max. 0.5 pages)
  • Short bio of the presenter(s)

Note that the abstract of the tutorial will be included in the BPM conference proceedings. If desired, there will also be the opportunity to share material (for example: readings, slides, and the like) on the BPM conference web page.

Please submit your proposal via e-mail to the two tutorial chairs by 15 May 2023. You will receive a notification regarding your submission on 2 June 2023.
