With the globalization of business and the visualization of enterprises, efficient and effective business process management (BPM) has become increasingly important. The first Chinese Conference on Business Process Management provides a research forum for researchers and practitioners in all aspects of BPM including theory, frameworks, methods, techniques, architectures, systems, and empirical findings. We aim to attract innovative research of the highest quality to improve the development and use of BPM technology in China.
