make these models available to the research community along with an analysis platform to foster empirical research. For more information, you can download a Flyer.

Recently, the initiative has grown significantly. There are thousands of users registered, including teachers, students, and researchers. These persons come from hundreds of universities and research institutions worldwide. http://www.signavio.com/en/academic.html. The use of the system is free of charge for these groups of persons. Hundreds of academic institutes already use the BPM Academic Initiative modeling platform and thereby, a steadily growing amount of models is being created with the process editor and streams into the model collection. By now, tens of thousands of models have been designed and are now made available to the BPM research community. Explore these models now.
