1st International Workshop on 
Model-Driven Engineering for 
Business Process Management

1 September 2008, at BPM2008, Milan, Italy

Paper Submission Deadline: 23 May 2008


An improved alignment of the IT infrastructure of an enterprise with its 
business needs and requirements is a trend that has dominated and driven 
innovations in information technology over the past couple of years. 
Model-driven engineering techniques are used to translate business needs 
directly into IT solutions. A special area of model-driven engineering, 
often denoted as business-driven development, focuses on generating SOA-
based IT solutions from business process models.

The goal of the MDE4BPM workshop is to establish a meeting point for 
closer collaboration and exchange between the BPM and the MDE communities. 
It complements the main BPM2008 conference program by focusing on research 
problems that arise when the model-driven methodology is applied to 
automate the whole lifecycle of business process modeling artifacts. 
BPM, as a specific application, provides many unique challenges and 
opportunities for advancing the state of the art in MDE research.  
Similarly, next generation BPM languages and tools can greatly benefit 
from the MDE concepts and methodologies.  In order to develop a better 
understanding between the two communities, submissions relating theory 
and practice of MDE for BPM are particularly welcome.
