This volume contains the proceedings of the 3rd International Conference on
Business Process Management (BPM 2005), organized by LORIA in Nancy,
France, September 5–8, 2005.
This year, BPM included several innovations with respect to previous editions,
most notably the addition of an industrial program and of co-located
workshops. This was the logical result of the significant (and still growing) industrial
interest in the area and of the broadening of the research communities
working on BPM topics.
The interest in business process management (and in the BPM conference)
was demonstrated by the quantity and quality of the paper submissions. We
received over 176 contributions from 31 countries, accepting 25 of them as full
papers (20 research papers and 5 industrial papers) while 17 contributions were
accepted as short papers. In addition to the regular, industry, and short presentations
invited lectures were given by Frank Leymann and Gustavo Alonso. This
combination of research papers, industrial papers, keynotes, and workshops, all
of very high quality, has shown that BPM has become a mature conference and
the main venue for researchers and practitioners in this area.
We would like to thank the members of the Program Committee and the
reviewers for their efforts in selecting the papers. They helped us compile an
excellent scientific program. For the difficult task of selecting the 25 best papers
(14% acceptance rate) and 17 short papers each paper was reviewed by at least
three reviewers (except some out-of-scope papers).
We would like to acknowledge the splendid support of the local organization
(in particular Claude Godart, Olivier Perrin, and Daniela Grigori). We also
thank Chris Bussler as workshop chair. Special thanks (as always!) go to Eric
Verbeek: he did a great job in compiling the final versions of the papers into
this LNCS volume. Finally, we would like to mention the excellent co-operation
with Springer during the preparation of this volume. We hope you will find the
papers in this volume interesting and stimulating.
