The paper selection will be based upon the relevance of a paper to the main topics, as well as upon its quality and potential to generate relevant discussion. All the workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-proceeding volume (to be sent around 4 months after the workshop) in their Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series.
All papers will be published on workshop wiki (www.bpms2.org) before the workshop, so that everybody can learn about the problems that are important for other participants. A blog will be used to encourage and support discussions. The workshop will consist of long and short paper presentations, brainstorming sessions and discussions. The workshop report will be created collaboratively using a wiki. A special issue over all workshops will be published in a journal (decision in progress).
