Business process management (BPM) is a holistic management approach focused on aligning all aspects of an organization with the wants and needs of clients. During the last years we have been facing major transformations on most IT departments and on the used approaches to achieve those transformations. Modelling processes in organizations have several challenges and quite known problems still to be discussed and solved. BPM is key to obtain higher levels of coordination across the organizations and increase efficiency. Nowadays are emerging new modelling languages for business processes and for enterprise architectures in a broader sense. The combination of traditional Business Process Management techniques with "social" tools and technologies tend to facilitate business improvement efforts. BPM has also a Human-centric approach that considers human skills and activities first and uses automated functions to support them. There is also a focus on Process mining that aims to provide techniques and tools for discovering process, control, data, organizational, and social structures from event logs.
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 Modelling,
• Business Analytics and Process Optimization,
• Business Process Execution and Monitoring,
• Process Tracing and Monitoring,
• Process Performance Measurement,
• Process Mining,
• Adaptive and context-aware processes,
• Process-oriented Software Architectures,
• Process Exception Handling,
• Loosely Structured Business Processes,
• Human-centric BPM,
• Social Business Processes.

It also aims at discussing practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted.
