On 15 May 2014 worldwide leading experts in the field of Business Process Management (BPM) will be arriving in Liechtenstein to discuss topical themes relating to innovation in the digital world. The Second European BPM Round Table offers a platform for exchanges between industrialists, academics and the authorities.

In all kinds of organisations, process management plays an extremely important part. BPM is designed to foster the continuous improvement of working processes and support innovation. The impulse provided by new forms of information technology has a crucial part to play in this connection. This makes BPM one of the most important priorities for successful companies today.

The Second European BPM Round Table, held at the University of Liechtenstein, brings together pioneering thinkers in process management research and representatives of leading companies in the field of BPM. The event encourages the exchange of knowledge and experience relating to BPM, and supports the networking of experts from industry, government and the academic world on a European level. The idea of a BPM Round Table at European level was suggested by the Eindhoven University of Technology, where it was held for the first time. It will now be taking place at a different European location every year.  
 
 
On 15 May distinguished international BPM experts from the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Australia, Slovenia and Estonia will be offering insights into the chosen theme of the conference – ‘Business Process Management – Driving Innovation in a Digital World’ – as well as presenting the latest findings and current developments connected with Business Process Management in lectures and discussions. As keynote speaker, Cornelius Clauser, Chief Process Officer of SAP AG, will be talking about the experience of a global software company in the BPM field.



‘The event represents a major opportunity for Liechtenstein and the Rhine Valley to encourage exchanges on the subject of innovation at European level. Participants will have a chance of discussing the highly relevant theme of process management with pioneering thinkers in this field,’ said Professor Jan vom Brocke, Head of the Institute for Information Systems and holder of the Chair of Business Process Management at the University of Liechtenstein,  which is hosting the event.


BPM speed dating and PhD scholarships


One of the highlights of the Second European BPM Round Table is BPM ‘speed dating’, which offers the opportunity of meeting local, regional and international practitioners and academics on the periphery of the event for a personal exchange. Interested members of the public who book by 9 May 2014 can choose in advance from a list of experts, and will then be informed on the day of their BPM speed dating schedule.   
Ph.D. students working towards a degree in Business Process Management were invited to apply for a scholarship to attend the Second European BPM Round Table. Fifteen students from eight countries, including Tunisia, Sweden and the USA, have been chosen to receive scholarships.  


   


The Second European BPM Round Table is being supported by Hilti AG (Platinum Sponsor), Camelot ITLab and Swarovski (Gold Sponsors) as well as the Eindhoven University of Technology, the European Institute of Innovation & Technology, the University of Liechtenstein and the Liechtenstein Chapter of the AIS (Academic Sponsors).
