100 years of graphical business process modelling? This sounds like a misprint, but it isn’t! On 5-9 December 1921, Frank B. Gilbreth & L. M. Gilbreth presented a new concept named “Process Charts“ at the Annual Meeting of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers. They described the notation as “a device for visualizing a process as a means of improving it.“ This anniversary is a good opportunity to look back on the past 100 years, to review the present, and to take a view towards the future. What has been achieved? Which challenges still remain? In a special issue of the EMISA Journal, we invite researchers as well as practitioners to discuss the history, current state and future of business process modelling.Read more about Special Issue: 100 Years of Graphical Business Process Modelling

EMISAJ is a scholarly peer-reviewed open access journal with a unique focus on novel and innovative conceptual modeling research and its applications (about the journal): ‘Conceptual Models, Enterprise Models and Information Systems Architectures should be researched from different perspectives, angles, and backgrounds, with a multitude of theoretical and practical lenses and mindsets. We welcome and encourage a broad understanding of conceptual modeling research and intend to further its many different facets, theoretical foundation and experiential body of knowledge’ (Editorial Statement).
