BPM 2020 is the 18th conference in a series that provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process Management. Over the past decade, the conference has built its reputation by showcasing leading-edge research of the highest quality together with talks, tutorials and discussions by the most renown thought leaders and innovators in the field. The BPM conference series embraces the diversity and richness of the BPM field and serves as a melting pot for experts from a mix of disciplines including Computer Science, Information Systems Engineering, and Management.
The Technion has been significantly involved with the BPM community. In 2017, Arik Senderovich won the Best Dissertation Award for his research in the field of Queue Mining. In the very same year, an article co-authored by Arik, Avigdor Gal- one of his doctoral advisors- and Matthias Weidlich won the conference’s Best Paper Award.
The Technion took part in organizing the 2014 edition of the conference, which was scheduled to take place in Haifa but eventually was held in the Netherlands due to Operation Protective Edge
BPM 2020 was based in Seville, yet due to the COVID19 pandemic, the conference took a virtual form with an on-line program. Professor Avigdor Gal gave the opening keynote.
