Workshop Background and Goals
Business process management (BPM) technologies are considered as one of
the key success stories in providing process control and monitoring
functions, and addressing complex integration requirements in enterprise
systems. However, the expectation of what this technology must deliver is a
moving target. Whereas the success of coordinative processes depends upon
the conformance to the prescribed control flow, the success of the
collaborative process depends upon the ability to detect and react to
changing conditions. What was true for workflow systems is no longer
acceptable in the dynamic and cross organizational requirements for
management of collaborative processes.
BPM has become a very extensive area with several specialized aspects. This
workshop intends to provide a forum wherein challenges in modelling and
deployment of specifically collaborative business processes can be debated.
We seek papers that present innovative technology solutions to these
challenges, but based on well justified practical assumptions, and sound
Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance,
originality, technical quality, and exposition. Papers should clearly
establish the research contribution, and relation to previous research.
Position and survey papers are also welcome.
Areas of Interest
Papers not specifically on the following topics, but within the general
scope of the workshop scope will still be considered.
• Technologies for modelling and analysis of collaborative business
• E-service coordination and composition models
• Cross-organizational process management
• Event driven process management
• Adaptive process management
• Context-aware collaborative processes
• Ontological aspects of collaborative processes
• Knowledge management in collaborative processes
• Middleware for collaborative process management
• Architectures and implementations for collaborative processes
• EAI and B2B technologies
• Usability and technology adoption of BPM solutions
• Business Process Scenarios: Description, Analysis, Classification
Format of the Workshop
The workshop will consist of oral presentations, discussions, and invited
talks. The workshop will also provide opportunity for demo sessions, where
presenters can showcase advanced prototypes based on their research.
