Selmin NURCAN obtained her engineer degree in computer sciences at INSA-Lyon (National Institute of Applied Sciences) in 1986. She joined then the Information Systems Engineering Research Centre where she received her PhD in computer sciences in 1991 and worked on knowledge representation and CSCW till 1995. She is currently associate professor at University Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne (Sorbonne Graduate Business School) and senior researcher at CRI.

Her research activities include enterprise modelling, enterprise architecture and business/IT alignment, process (re)engineering, change modelling, cooperative IS engineering and business process management and CSCW. She actively participated to the development of EKD-CMM, a multi-method for defining the organizational change and more generally for guiding the engineering activities for enterprise modelling and business/system alignment. She currently works (i) on intention driven modelling formalisms in order to measure their ability to represent adaptive and flexible business processes (intra or inter enterprises); (ii) on the enhancement of IS engineering methods aiming to deal with business/IS alignment and IS governance requirements. She has an extensive teaching experience in the areas of enterprise computing, information systems and ICT, including enterprise knowledge development, organizational change modelling, business process and workflow engineering, CSCW, IS engineering and project management.

She is author or co-author of more than 150 research papers, co-chair of the BPMDS series on Business Process Modelling, Development, and Support since 2007 ( in conjunction with CAISE; co-chair of the BPM Track (Business Process Management) during the four last editions of the IRMA (Information Resources Management Association) International Conference; co-founder and co-chair of the Workshop on Business Process Management and Social Software (BPMS2) since 2008 ( in conjunction with BPM International Conferences, co-founder and co-chair of the Workshop on Service-oriented Enterprise Architecture for Enterprise Engineering since 2009 in conjunction with EDOC IEEE International Conferences; Member of IFIP WG 8.1 (Design and Evaluation of Information Systems), CAISE'2011 Forum Chair, CAISE'2014 Forum Co-Chair, RCIS 2013 Program Co-Chair, CAISE'2015 Doctoral Consortium Co-Chair.

She supervised 25 research and more than 150 vocational master thesis since 1995. She supervised six PhD thesis (defended since 2001) and is actually supervising three PhD thesis.
