Mission and Purpose

SIGPAM addresses the need of IS researchers and practitioners for information and knowledge sharing in the areas of process design, automation, and management in both organizational and interorganizational contexts. SIGPAM provides an interactive forum for the exchange of information, publishes a quarterly newsletter, and sponsors an annual workshop.

We work with other not-for-profit organizations that have a focus on process management theories and applications such as the Workflow Management Coalition (WfMC), the Object Management Group (OMG) and the Association of Business Process Management Professionals (ABPMP).

Other sites related to Process Automation and Management include AIIM, BPMI, e-workflow.org, and bpm-research.com.
