The arrival of the Internet of Things (IoT) has put into play a huge amount of interconnected and embedded computing devices with sensing and actuating capabilities that are revolutionizing our way of living.
The incorporation of this technology into the BPM field will allow the development of business processes with higher levels of flexibility, efficiency, and responsiveness, providing as a result a better support to the evolving business requirements. In addition, the proper combination of these two fields can foster the development of innovative solutions not only in the business domain where the BPM emerged, but also in many different application areas in which the IoT can be applied (e.g., smart cities, smart agro, or e-health). While the incorporation of IoT technology into the BPM field has plenty of potentials, it also imposes a set of challenges that need to be addressed.
The objective of this workshop is therefore to attract novel research at the intersection of these two areas by bringing together practitioners and researchers from both communities that are interested in making IoT-based business processes a reality.
