Call for Demos and Resources

The BPM 2022 Demos & Resources Forum showcases innovative Business Process Management (BPM) tools, services, and applications, as well as resources like datasets, taxonomies, labelled event logs and annotated corpora alike, quantitative/qualitative data and benchmarks, that may originate either from academic initiatives or industry endeavors. The Demos & Resources Forum will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging technologies and relevant knowledge sources with researchers and practitioners in the field of BPM to make the community aware of the available tools and resources.

For the inclusion in the proceedings, tools and resources will be evaluated on the basis of relevance to the BPM community, as well as on novelty and innovativeness. Previously demonstrated tools or exposed resources are also welcome if there is clear evidence of the value added to the previous version, such as new features, characteristics and/or the adaptation and use for new practical applications. The tools will also be evaluated based on their maturity, complexity and robustness, such as the list of features, supported use cases, number and types of users. The resources will also be evaluated based on their availability, reusability and richness, for example in terms of appropriate description (machine- or human-readable), replicability, and generalizability of the studies that can be conducted using them.

Tools and resources submissions need to be available for testing.  Further, they need to be accompanied by a paper, which must adhere to CEURART submission formatting guidelines (for instructions and style sheets see The length of the paper should be 5 pages.

The paper should contain at least the following parts:

  • Title, authors and affiliations;
  • An abstract (of no more than 100 words);
  • An introduction section, which, among others, should highlight the significance of the tool or resource to the BPM field;
  • A section discussing the innovations of the tool or resource to the BPM community and its main characteristics or features;
  • For tool demonstrations:
    • A section describing the maturity of the tool. For this section, one could provide a brief description of case studies performed using the tool, provide scalability data or pointers indicating where readers can find more information about these case studies;
    • A link to a video that screencasts and demonstrates the tool, preferably including voice, which must not be longer than 4 minutes;
    • A link to a separate tutorial document, which focuses on one specific use case of the tool that is presented in a step-by-step approach (e.g., mine a Petri net from an event log, simulate a model, verify a set of business constraints, etc.).
    • A link to the tool (e.g., a link to a web page where to download or use the tool). If the tool requires a license, a paper’s or tutorial’s appendix should describe how to obtain a (temporary) license. The procedure to obtain the license must not disclose the identity of the reviewers. The appendix will not be included in the final version for the proceedings, if the demo is accepted.
  • For resource expositions:
    • A section describing the data model and schema of the resource. The reader should understand from this section how to interpret and gather information from the exposed resource;
    • A section describing a preliminary analysis conducted on, or with the aid of, the resource. For this section, it is necessary that the procedure to obtain the results is clearly linked to the exposed resource;
    • A link to a separate document that explains step-by-step how to download, load and use the resource, focusing on a specific use case.
    • A publicly accessible and persistently available link (e.g., GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket, Zenodo, B2share) to download and cite the resource. The web page must not require a registration procedure that unveils the identity of reviewers. In addition, it has to contain:
      • Download, loading and usage instructions, and
      • License specification.

Submission and Review Process

Demo and resource papers should be submitted through the BPM 2022 submission system hosted by EasyChair

All demo and resource submissions will be reviewed by the Demos & Resources Program Committee. The Committee will also vote on the best contribution to receive the “BPM 2022 Best Demos and Resources Award”.

Accepted demo and resource papers will be submitted for publication to CEUR (indexed by DBLP and SCOPUS) and posted along with their videos on the BPM 2022 web page.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact:


Each tool and resource will be presented in front of the plenary using one or two-minute teasers to inform the audience about the available demos.

The actual demonstrations will then be held in a dedicated slot with all tools/applications being shown in parallel. Each demo will be provided with a station in the demo venue. The presenters of resources are required to bring a poster that will be exhibited during a specific session. Each poster will be provided with a dedicated space in the poster exhibition room.

For each tool demonstration and resource exposition, the registration to the conference of at least one presenter is mandatory to guarantee their physical presence.
