Business process management (BPM) is a holistic management approach focused on aligning all aspects of an organization with the wants and needs of clients. 2011 is set to be a year of transformation for most IT departments. BPM and SOA are key to obtain higher levels of coordination across the enterprise and increase efficiency. This special session provides a forum for researchers and practitioners in all aspects of BPM including theory, frameworks, methods, techniques, architectures, systems, and empirical findings, attracting innovative contributions from several disciplines such as Computer Science, Management, Services Computing, and Information Technology Management. The main topics addressed include Business Process Design, Business Process Modeling, Business Analytics and Process Optimization, Business Process Execution and Monitoring. It also aims at discussing practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted.
