Demo of the initiative at BPM 2010
After one year, the initiative has grown significantly. There are more than one thousand persons registered, including teachers and students. They come from hundreds of universities worldwide.
Thus, we invite researchers and lecturers, teachers and students, to attend the demo session at BPM 2010
in Hoboken, NJ. We will introduce the BPM Academic Initiative
in a short talk (Wednesday, Sep 15, 3:15 at the demo track) and showcase a live demo (Thursday, Sep 16, 10:45, in room @Babbio). The poster (left) is published under Creative Commons

Business Process Management is of key importance for all organizations and lies at the intersection of business and information technology. As such, it plays an increasingly important role as a mediator between multiple disciplines.
In university curricula, business process management is either a self-contained course or it is embedded in courses on topics like Information Systems or Requirements Engineering. Textbooks are available that provide the conceptual basis. While learning concepts and notations in class is fine, students will master the subject through exercise work and practical experience.
Therefore, we have started the Signavio-Oryx Academic Initiative to provide business process management teaching as a service, through a modeling platform and academic teaching material. Academic users like researchers, lecturers and students can access this tool and material free of charge.
