Call for BPM 2016 Tutorials and Panels

The BPM 2016 conference, which will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 18 – 22 September 2016, is seeking original proposals for tutorials and panels, which will complement the conference program. The tutorials will provide conference delegates with the opportunity to obtain an in–depth introduction to specific methods, techniques or tools in the BPM field. We particularly encourage tutorial submissions on emerging aspects of BPM or topics that expand the horizon of the conference. Panels, in turn, are open conversations where thought leaders discuss controversial topics or trends in BPM. Tutorials and panels are intended to be highly interactive, encouraging the audience to pose questions and comment on the contents. Tutorials may last either 1.5 or 3 hours, whereas a panel is planned for up to 1.5 hours. The full Call for Tutorials and Panels has been published on the Opens external link in new windowBPM’16 website.

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.

BPM Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth’14) http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/145-bpm-workshop-on-process-oriented-information-systems-in-healthcare-prohealth-14 http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/145-bpm-workshop-on-process-oriented-information-systems-in-healthcare-prohealth-14

Manfred Reichert is co-organizer of the 7th Int’l Workshop on Process-Oriented Information Systems in Healthcare (ProHealth’14), which will be held in conjunction with the 12th Int’l Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2014) in Haifa, Israel at 8 September 2014 – the BPM conference series provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the BPM field. Manfred shares this task with his colleagues Mor Peleg (University of Haifa, Israel) and Richard Lenz (University of Erlangen-Nurnberg).

ProHealth Workshop BPM 2014

About the Workshop

Healthcare organizations are facing the challenge of delivering high quality services to their patients at affordable costs. These challenges become more prominent with the growth in the aging population with chronic diseases and the rise of healthcare costs. High degree of specialization of medical disciplines, huge amounts of medical knowledge and patient data to be consulted in order to provide evidence-based recommendations, and the need for personalized healthcare are prevalent trends in this information-intensive domain. The emerging situation necessitates computer-based support of healthcare process & knowledge management as well as clinical decision-making

BPM technology provides a key to implement these changes. Though patient-centered process support becomes increasingly crucial in healthcare, BPM technology has not yet been broadly used in healthcare environments. This workshop shall elaborate both the potential and the limitations of IT support for healthcare processes. It shall further provide a forum wherein challenges, paradigms, and tools for optimized process support in healthcare can be debated. We want to bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities (e.g., BPM, Information Systems, Medical Informatics, E-Health) who share an interest in both healthcare processes and BPM technologies.

The first six ProHealth Workshops were held in conjunction with the 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th, and 10th International Conferences on Business Process Management (BPM’07, BPM'08, BPM'09, BPM'2011, BPM'2012), and in conjunction with the Artificial Intelligence in Medicine conference (BPM'2013); the last two ProHealth workshops were unified with the Knowledge Representation for Healthcare workshop, in order to bring these communities of BPM and AI in medicine closer together. The great success of the past 6 workshops demonstrated the potential of such an interdisciplinary forum to improve the understanding of domain specific requirements, methods and theories, tools and techniques, and the gaps between IT support and healthcare processes that are yet to be closed.

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

BPM Best of Time Award 2013 http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/138-bpm-best-of-time-award-2013 http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/138-bpm-best-of-time-award-2013

Great Success for the DBIS team! In the context of the BPM 2013 conference in Beijing, the Steering Committee of the Business Process Management conference series handed out the BPM Test of Time Award 2013 to Stefanie Rinderle-Ma, Manfred Reichert, and Peter Dadam for their paper Evaluation of Correctness Criteria for Dynamic Workflow Changes presented at BPM 2003 in Eindhoven.

The BPM Test of Time Award is given every two years. In 2013 the award was given to the above paper, which has been selected as the most influential one presented at BPM 2003 in Eindhoven and BPM 2004 in Potsdam. The decision was made by the Steering Committee of the BPM conference series and was based on the impact of the paper on the BPM field (both from a scientific and practical viewpoint), the number of citations received during the last 10 years (Google Scholar and Scopus), the technical quality, and the presentation.

The DBIS team is pleased to have received this prestigious award, which constitutes another acknowledgement of the high impact and visibility of DBIS research. The award ceremony took place at the BPM 2013 conference in Beijing. Peter Dadam participated at this ceremony and received the award from Wil van der Aalst. The laudation of the BPM steering committee motivating its decision can be downloaded here.

Background on the awarded DBIS paper

Our BPM 2003 paper compares actual approaches dealing with adaptive workflows using a set of fundamental criteria. The work focuses on correctness measures to decide whether or not a process instance can be smoothly migrated to a modified process model. Many authors published papers on workflow flexibility, which has been one of the hotspots in BPM research for more than a decade (see also http://www.process-flexibility.com/). However, most of the earlier approaches focused on a specific technique or problem rather than a comparative analysis and a comprehensive set of criteria. Yet, there are various notorious dynamic change problems that need to be considered urgently. As such, this paper was an important step towards a more mature treatment of the topic. 

Today, the topic of flexibility and workflow change is still of the utmost relevance. Our BPM 2003 paper is one of the most cited BPM papers of its period. Moreover, the quality was already acknowledged in 2003 and, hence, we were invited for the special issue of Data & Knowledge Engineering based on BPM 2003. Also the extended journal paper (Correctness Criteria for Dynamic Changes in Workflow Systems: A Survey, Data & Knowledge Engineering, 50(1):9-34, 2004) is frequently cited, thus further illustrating the impact of our work.

BPM'12 Tutorial on Large Process Models and Process Model Collections http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/111-bpm-12-tutorial-on-large-process-models-and-process-model-collections http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/111-bpm-12-tutorial-on-large-process-models-and-process-model-collections

In the context of the BPM 2012 conference conference, which took place from September 5-7 in Tallinn, Estonia, Manfred Reichert (DBIS), Barbara Weber (University of Innsbruck) and Victoria Torres Bosch (University of Valencia) organized a tutorial on large process models (i.e., large process model trees or complex inter-related process structures) and large process model collections. The tutorial discussed the challenges that arise both in respect to the handling of large process models and the management of large collections of process models (with related process variants). As a motivational backbone, large process models and process model collections from the automotive industry and the healthcare domain were presented. Overall the tutorial, which was attended by more than 40 participants from the international research community, was a great success! The tutorial also addressed several of the topics described in detail in our book, e.g., process model refactoring (Chapter 9), process variant support and process configuration (Chapter 5), and data-driven process structures (Chapter 13).
