About CeSCoP
Globalization and competitive pressure created the need for collaborations among business partners who join their forces and combine their services in order to provide added-value products. Coming along with benefits of such cross-organizational collaborations, companies encounter tough challenges as they have to cope with demanding security, adaptation, compliance and privacy requirements. The CeSCoP workshop focuses on the research problems faced in intra- and cross-organizational processes as well as it aims to support investigation and novel solutions with regard to the specific requirements arising in this context.

The workshop's purpose is to offer a portal for researchers and practitioners to discuss and contribute research dedicated to the investigation to the main requirements of intra- and cross-organizational processes (e.g., modeling, flexibility, monitoring, etc.).

Further details and the call for papers can be found on the  workshop's webseite.

Invited Keynote, Int'l Workshop on Process Engineering (IWPE'15), Innsbruck, 31 August 2015

Abstract:
Business Process Management (BPM) has been evolving as a research discipline for more than a decade and a multitude of innovative concepts, methods and techniques have been suggested. However, there is still a huge gap between the promises of BPM in theory and its actual achievements in practice. A major reason for this gap has been the lack of established principles, methods and techniques for the engineering of more advanced process management technology and process-aware information systems, respectively, i.e., to implement process support features in a cost-effective and practical approach. To deal with this challenge, this keynote talk will take an engineering perspective on process-aware information systems. It will start with a discussion of the existing gap between BPM theory and its translation into reality. Then, it will elaborate on some of the fundamental requirements to be met when engineering process-aware information systems (e.g. scalability, usability, robustness, and integration capability). Furthermore, it will give examples of successful BPM engineering endeavours. Finally, it will discuss some of the challenges on the way towards well established principles, methods and techniques for process engineering.

The Danube connects each other: UULM Successfully Collaborates with Viennese Universities http://process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/202-the-danube-connects-each-other-uulm-successfully-collaborates-with-viennese-universities http://process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/202-the-danube-connects-each-other-uulm-successfully-collaborates-with-viennese-universities

As in previous years, there has been a fruitful collaboration between the Opens internal link in current windowInstitute of Databases and Information Systems (DBIS) and three Viennese Universities in 2015, which resulted in a number of excellent joint publications.

Traditionally, there has been a close collaboration between DBIS and Opens external link in new windowProf. Stefanie Rinderle-Ma's chair of Opens external link in new windowWorkflow Systems and Technology from the University of Vienna. Currently, in the joint research project Opens internal link in current windowC³Pro, researchers from both groups are developing an advanced framework for collaborative business processes, which ensures compliance along the entire process lifecycle, particularly in connection with cross-organizational processes and process changes -- C³Pro is co-funded by the German Research  Foundation  (DFG) and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). In 2015, the C3Pro project team has already published several papers, including an article in the Information Systems journal [2] and two high quality papers in the ER 2015 [2] und IEEE SCC 2015 [3] conference proceedings.

Besides this long-running cooperation with the University of Vienna, there has been another intense collaboration with Opens external link in new windowProf. Jan Mendling and Opens external link in new windowDr. Cristina Cabanillas from the Vienna University of Economics and Business, which has resulted in a joint paper [4] at the CAiSE 2015 conference in Stockholm. In this paper, which is also co-authored by colleagues from the University of Seville, a graphical notation for resource assignments in business processes has been introduced.

Finally, together with Opens external link in new windowProf. Silvia Miksch from the Technical University of Vienna as well as other European colleagues, Manfred Reichert has been co-organizer of the Opens external link in new windowKR4HC 2015 / ProHealth 2015 international workshop, which focuses on process and knowledge support in healthcare information systems. The proceedings of this year's workshop will appear soon in the Springer LNAI series (see [5, 6] for previous proceedings of this workshop series).

The DBIS team is looking forward to continuing these collaborations with its Viennese partners.

Manfred Reichert was invited keynote speaker at the 6th Int’l Workshop on Evolutionary Business Processes (EVL-BP’13) – EVL-BP’13 took place in Vancouver, Canada on Sep 9, 2013. In his keynote entitled "From Theory to Practice – Transferring Innovative BPM Research to Industrial Practice", Manfred reported on DBIS research projects targeting at the flexible and efficient support of knowledge-intensive and human-centric business processes. In particular, he emphasized how innovative technologies developed in these projects were successfully transferred to industrial practice.

2013-09-10-News-Keynote-EVL-BP13

Abstract:

Companies increasingly adopt process-aware information systems to capture, model, execute, monitor, and evolve their business processes. This keynote will draw a retrospective of some of the real-world challenges for business process management that we tackled in various domains (e.g., healthcare, automotive engineering) during the last decade. We will report on research projects which developed innovative technologies for the flexible and efficient support of knowledge-intensive and human-centric business processes. This includes concepts, methods and tools for enabling adaptive and evolutionary processes, data-driven process support, and human-centric workflows. In particular, we will discuss how the technologies we developed in these projects were successfully transferred to industrial practice.

Manfred Reichert was invited speaker at a special meeting of the European BPM round table on November 5th 2012 in Eindhoven. At this meeting, which was attended by around 100 participants from academia and industry, internationally well-known researchers, together with representatives of the companies they cooperate with, presented joint work. The European BPM round table is the premier venue for researchers and practitioners to meet and discuss the latest trends in Business Process Management (BPM).

In his presentation, Manfred reported on the experiences made and the results obtained during several research projects in the automotive Domain.

BPM Round Table in Eindhoven

Manfred Reichert: From Theory to Practice - A Decade of BPM Research & Developement in the Automotive Domain - Challenges, Solutions, Project Examples [Download PDF document] European BPM Round Table, TU Eindhoven, Netherlands, 5 November 2012  

Some background information on the European BPM Roundtable:

tableOver the past two decades, BPM has caused a radical change in the way in which organizations work. Nowadays, many organizations are structured in a 'process-oriented' manner and use BPM tools and techniques, both in their daily operations and to realize change. Still, this active field is developing rapidly and new tools and techniques appear continuously. This development is sustained by the continuous effort of researchers, who generate and develop new ideas, and practitioners, who demand new solutions and, by applying these in practice, generate valuable experience, which triggers further development.

To facilitate this collaboration, the BPM round table provides a forum where researchers and practitioners meet, discuss the latest trends, exchange ideas and, together, take the field of business process management forward. There are currently 22 national BPM round tables. The European BPM round table provides a European infrastructure, in which national BPM round tables share, among other things, knowledge, speakers and contacts.
