English An important aspect of enterprise information systems is the management and execution of business processes. For exploring the evolution of topics in business process management in academia and industry, we present the findings from a computational literature analysis. For this purpose, we revert to the full texts and metadata of the proceedings of the International Conference on Business Process Management and its workshops as a sample. In addition, the data has been enriched with data on the academic or industrial provenance of the authors. For identifying the most important topics in business process management, we performed a content-based analysis of over 1,200 papers using Latent Dirichlet Allocation. This analysis gives insights into the development of topics over time and identifies recently emerging topics.
