BPM 2010 Demo Track

This year the BPM conference will take place in Hoboken, USA. Aside from the typical wealth of scientific presentations and workshops, this year’s BPM conference will also once again feature a demonstration track.

As a member of the reviewing committee for the demo track, I am happy to relay the call for demonstrations to you:

This track is intended to showcase innovative Business Process Management (BPM) tools and applications that may originate either from research initiatives or from industry. The Demonstration Track will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging technologies with researchers and practitioners in the BPM field.

My opinion has always been that working software is essential for making BPM research relevant. Software provides an easily verifiable proof of the feasibility and practical applicability of what would otherwise only be nice theoretical ideas. And last but not least, it makes these ideas immediately accessible to a wider audience of practitioners.

If you have implemented your research ideas in software, you should definitely consider demoing it at the BPM conference. Your tool can get exposure to leading BPM researchers and professionals, and the feedback you will get may alone be worth the effort.
