Dynamic Digital Design of Everything – Shaping or Being Shaped?

Our societies are subject to a continuous digital transformation shaped by industry. However, both industry and societies are increasingly losing the ability to imagine a digital future in order to assess its „desirability“. As designers, we emphasize the importance of ideas and speculations not only being realized in the form of (digital) prototypes, but also being usable by people and communities. At the same time, we know that the design and use of future-oriented technologies will be essential for economic and social progress.  The typical workday of modern businesses and knowledge workers is increasingly influenced by interactive technologies that are changing the way work gets done. 

Business processes are central here, they encapsulate the behavior of people and things (i.e. everything). They are key to the design of workflows and situations we experience in everyday life. Their representation(s) form the basis for the exchange, exploration, and ultimately the implementation of new developments or dynamic adaptations in societies.

After many trends such as integration, modularisation, standardisation, contextualisation, and open interfaces, the design of all the described process aspects in a dynamic changing world is coming to the centre of attention with the increasing technological progress. Under the motto „Dynamic Digital Design of Everything – Designing or being designed?“, the „13th International S-BPM ONE Conference 2022“ provides a discussion forum for the basic questions of holistic modelling of processes. Researchers and practitioners will address innovative approaches on how organisations and societies can support their stakeholders to holistically design processes and all their relevant aspects and thus become more involved in the value creation framed by process technologies and their (digital) design tools.

We are therefore interested in contributions on the following topics in particular:

  • (Everything-to-Everything) X2X communication
  • X-value streams
  • X-modeling, transformation, and execution
  • Speculative X-design
  • Internet of Everything
  • Intelligent X process design
  • X2X Intelligence
  • X Design Systems
  • Continuous Design integrating X
  • Digital X Twins
  • Design is Everything (You are in total control)
  • Organizational Design with X
  • Sensemaking through X design
  • X design principles for Industrie 4.0|Smart Cities | Healthcare | Smart Logistics | Hyper Automation CPS
  • X’s business
  • Modelling Dynamic X Behaviour
  • Process Change & Transformation
  • Autonomous digital workplace design 
  • Explainable and transparent process design
  • Accountable process engineering
  • Multi-/Interdisciplinary perspectives on process engineering
  • Examples and Cases of (Subject-oriented-)BPM research & practice

Full Paper: These contributions present a completed research project or a scientifically examined case. They should follow Springer CCIS (Communications in Computer and Information Science) format and be of 15-20 pages length.

Short Paper: These contributions should have 8-10 pages (Springer CCIS format) and range from work in progress over initial research results to case studies/scenarios. Their preferred presentation type at the conference (e.g., presentation, poster or discussion) should be indicated in the text.

Work in Progress: Ongoing research or planned research contributions with initial results, as well as case studies or business applications without scientific underpinning so far (4-6 pages in Springer CCIS format).

Reflection Papers: Discussions or opinions on current scientific or practical questions that are to be further substantiated or presented as a thesis at the conference (4-6 pages in Springer CCIS format).

Demonstration/Showcases: Presentation of applications, case studies, or prototypes. Please send proposals until May 15, 2022, to

Doctoral/master studies: Research projects, ongoing studies or completed work of master and doctoral students. (Hints for Work in Progress apply.)

Panels: Discussions with invited guests or open for contribution. Please send proposals until April 15, 2022 to

Tutorials: Guidance or practical guidelines from science and practice. Please send proposals until April 15, 2022 to

Submission, Review and Publication

Please use Springer Lecture Notes format template (available here) and submit your paper via ConfTtool here.

Important Dates 

Submission Deadline:       (EXTENDED) – 22nd of March 2022
Authors notification:     April 23rd 2022
Camera ready version: May 16th 2022
Conference:         June 29th to July 1st 2022

Work to be submitted must be original work and must not have been published or submitted elsewhere. At least one author must register for the conference and present the paper

All submissions will undergo blind peer reviews. Full papers are evaluated in a detailed peer review of at least two members of the international program committee in terms of quality, foundations, study design and impact. All other papers/forms (Short Papers, Work in Progress, Reflection Papers, Demonstration/Showcases, Doctoral/master studies, Panels, Tutorials) are evaluated in a fast track review by the Program Committee. They are evaluated primarily according to their potential to stimulate discussions on practices and innovative topics. Important: For the blind review make sure to submit without author names and please carefully select type of submission.

Accepted submissions will be published in the Springer Series Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS).
