COVID_19 UPDATES NEW SUBMISSION DATE IS: May 29, 2020 (online/video presentation possible!)

DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THE NEW DEADLINE FOR PAPER SUBMISSION IS NOW MAY 29, 2020. OUR CONFERENCE WITH THE OPTIONS OF ONLINE/VIDEO PRESENTATIONS WILL TAKE PLACED ON THE ORIGINAL DATE AS PLANNED, AUGUST 24-26, 2020. WE BELIEVE THAT IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP STRONG SPIRIT AND CONTINUE WITH OUR EVERYDAY PROFESSIONAL ACTIVITIES AS WELL. THIS WILL GIVE MORE TIME TO RESEARCHERS PLANNING TO CONTRIBUTE TO INISTA 2020 TO DEAL WITH THE DIFFICULT SITUATION CAUSED BY THE PANDEMIC. WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THAT SITUATION WITH COVID-19 VIRUS WILL BE NORMALIZED AND THAT WE WILL MEET AT THE END OF AUGUST.


Objectives and topics

Since ITU-T announced Internet-of-Things (IoT) in 2005, we are witness enormous flooding of things into our everyday lives end entering the fourth industrial revolution where smart autonomous devices are wirelessly connected to a cloud and kept on a coordinated mission to reach an objective. For example, a just-in-time production comprising flexibly configured smart workstations is supplied with system components from 1st- and 2nd tier suppliers to construct trucks. Gartner predicts that connected things will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. Recently, a novel software-engineering paradigm has evolved: Internet-of-Everything (IoE) that comprises all existing and future living- and non-living things over the Internet that should be able to connect at any time, cooperate, and learn from each other. The questions that arise are: How do these new opportunities affect Business Process Management (BPM)? What are the gaps in the existing state of the art in research and industry? How to manage security and trust for IoE configurations? The scope of the BPMoIE includes, but is not limited to the following topics:


Theoretical frameworks for BPM in the era of IoE

Enterprise architecture in the IoE era

Business Intelligence over IoE

BP interoperability over IoE

Data, objects, and process mining over IoE

Machine- and deep learning for BPM

Social Machines for BPM

Software engineering in the IoT and IoE era

Agents in favor of chained BPs over IoE

Security issues in the IoE era

Intelligent orchestration and choreography of IoE objects

Intelligent adaptation of business processes in IoE

Use cases as smart cities, industry 4.0, crisis management
