The 5th International Workshop on Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context in Business Process Management (CCBPM2020) will be held in conjunction with The 20th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGrid2020) at Melbourne, Australia on May 11, 2020.

The goal of CCBPM2020 is to promote the role of emerging computing paradigms such as Mobile-Cloud Computing, Edge Computing, Fog Computing, and Context in business process management (BPM) by discussing  (1) what the distributed computing and context community can bring to BPM community, including business and scientific workflow management; and (2) what are the challenges of BPM and workflow system that BPM community think these emerging computing paradigms and context (e.g. context-aware fog computing based workflow system) may solve. We are looking for extension of business processes and workflows like Fog/context-based BPM and workflow, and if possible, contextualized Fog BPM and workflow systems. After the previous CCBPM events (previously named as “Cloud and Context in Business Process Management”) CCBPM2013 (October 28, 2013, Annecy, Haute-Savoie, France), CCBPM2014 (August 27, 2014, Beijing, China), and CCBPM2015 (November 4, 2015, Shanghai, China), CCBPM2018 (September 10, 2018, Sydney, Australia), CCBPM2020 will be extended in its scope to accommodate the latest progress in computing paradigms especially on Edge and Fog Computing.

BPM has been referred to as a “holistic management” approach to aligning an organization’s business processes with the needs of users. It promotes business effectiveness and efficiency while striving for innovation, flexibility, and integration with technology. However, the challenge for a large use of business process is the failure in addressing both the dynamic execution environment (e.g., Cloud and Fog) and the elastic requirement of users (i.e., logic of use). Two lines of research emerge to address this problem. Upstream, researchers try to make explicit the contextualization process in designing flexible and elastic business process for process optimization and reuse. Downstream, emerging computing paradigms such as Mobile-Cloud and Fog computing could bring a promising orchestration of business process but suppose a revision of BPM architecture.

Given the rapid development of Business Process Management and emerging computing paradigms, there are many new opportunities but also big challenges. Specifically, the technical issues to be addressed are: Where context may intervene for operationalizing business process? What must be the impact of emerging computing paradigms and context in the design and execution of business process? What would be a context-aware BPM and a Mobile-Cloud/Fog based BPM/Workflow Systems? What kinds of context constraints and middleware should be integrated with the business process?

The intended audience will primarily be the researchers and practitioners who are interested in applying emerging computing paradigms such as Edge and Fog Computing, and context techniques to the management of business processes and scientific workflow applications. Recognizing the interdisciplinary nature of BPM, the workshop also encourages submissions that embrace other disciplines such as Workflow Management, Information Systems and IT Management, Data and Knowledge Management, Web/Software Engineering, Service-Oriented Computing, Social Computing, Big Data and so on. The key criteria for acceptance are excellence and answering challenges specific to the field of BPM and especially in the emerging computing paradigms.  

Call for Papers

Context-aware business process/workflow, e.g.

  • Context for Mobile and Ubiquitous applications
  • Context-aware BPM for Authentication, Authorisation and Accounting

  • People-/knowledge-intensive process
  • Crowdsourcing and process based on social networks

Emerging Computing Paradigms and Context based workflow design, execution and scheduling, e.g.

  • Context and Quality-of-Service constraints for workflow design
  • Workflow verification and generation with context and QoS constraints
  • Load balancing and scheduling of Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud workflows
  • Fog/Edge/Mobile-Cloud/Context-based process mining 

Submission Guidelines

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Secure Mobile Cloud Computing. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors’ names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 8 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged an additional fee. Please include page numbers on all submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments. Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop paper submission site at

Only PDF files will be accepted. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, technical clarity and presentation. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their papers will be registered and presented at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings which will be available at the time of the meeting.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the CCGRID conference and present the paper in the workshop. Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

All accepted papers will be published as part of the CCGRID proceedings. All previous CCGRID proceedings have been published by the IEEE and available online through IEEE Digital Library (EI indexing).

Selected papers, after significant extension, will be recommended to the following journal special issues – IEEE Access Special issue on “Advances in Machine Learning and Cognitive Computing for Industry Applications” (SCI Q1, Impact Factor: 4.098 )
