However, effectively visualizing processes in a user-friendly way is often a big challenge, especially for complex process models which can consist of hundreds of process components (e.g., process activities, data flows, and resources) and thousands of running process instances in different execution states.
Many challenges remain to be addressed within the broad area of process visualization such as: scalability, human-computer interaction, cognitive aspects, applicability of different approaches, collaboration, process evolution, run-time requirements of process instances and applications, etc.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Visual Metaphors in Processes
- Visual Design and Aesthetics for Processes
- Visualization of Dynamic Data in Processes
- Change Visualization for Processes
- Interface and Interaction Techniques for Process Visualization
- Visualization Techniques for Collaboration and Distributed Processes
- Visualization of Large-scale Processes
- Cognition and Perception in Process Visualization
- Evaluation and User Studies of Process Visualization
- Visual Modeling Languages
- Analysis Techniques and Visualization for Processes
- Process Visualization of Large Screens
- Mobile Process Visualization
- Visualization Tools and Systems for Processes
- Visualization Techniques for Processes
- Process Visualization and Sonification
- Virtual World Process Visualization
- Immersive Process Modeling Approaches
- 3D Process Visualization Approaches
The ½ day workshop will comprise accepted papers and tool presentations. Papers should be submitted in advance and will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. All accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. There will be a single LNBIP volume dedicated to the proceedings of all BPM workshops. As this volume will appear after the conference, there will be informal proceedings during the workshop. At least one author for each accepted paper should register for the workshop and present the paper.
- Deadline for workshop paper submissions: 1 June 2012
- Notification of acceptance: 2 July 2012
- Camera-ready version: 30 July 2012
- Workshop: 3 September 2012
Three types of submissions are possible:
- full papers (12 pages long) reporting mature research results
- position papers reporting research that may be in preliminary stage that has not yet been evaluated
- tool reports
Only papers in English will be accepted and must present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere. Papers should be submitted in the LNBIP format. The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an indication of the submission category (regular paper/position paper/tool report).
All accepted workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). Hard copies of these proceedings will be shipped to all registered participants approximately four months after the workshops, while preliminary proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.
Submitted papers will be evaluated, in a double blind manner, on the basis of significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. Papers should clearly establish their research contribution and the relation to the theory and application of process visualization.
Accepted papers imply that at least one of the authors will register for the BPM2012 and present the paper at the TAProViz workshop.
