2016 03 24 IWPE Workshop Main

About the IWPE 2016 workshop:

The 2nd International Workshop on Process Engineering aims at bringing together researchers and practitioners interested in the engineering aspects of process-aware information systems.  The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners in different disciplines that are relevant for this theme. Experts in the broad research areas of business process management and software engineering are invited to join. Stimulating discussions of engineering approaches on the edge of software engineering and business process management are expected. In particular, it will be interesting to discuss in how far software engineering methods and techniques in, for instance, requirements engineering, software architectures and testing can be used to tackle process engineering challenges. On the other hand, process management results could also complement software engineering techniques in areas like requirements elicitation and software architectures.

Further details and the Call for Papers can be found on the Opens external link in new windowIWPE 2016 homepage.

Invited Keynote, 14th International Conference on Perspectives in Business Informatics Research (BIR 2015), Tartu, Estland, 27. 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, e.g., related to process modeling languages, process model analyses, process enactment infrastructures, process flexibility, and process mining. Although BPM has matured as a research discipline, there is still a gap between its promises and its actual achievements in practice. This keynote speech will reflect on this gap, discuss emerging challenges, and relate BPM research to current waves like "Big Data", "Big Software" and "Cloud Computing", which provide new prospects for future BPM research.

Manfred Reichert: Initiates file downloadTaking an Engineering Perspective on Process-Aware Information Systems
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.

PhD Thesis on Process-Oriented Information Logistics http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/201-phd-thesis-on-process-oriented-information-logistics http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/201-phd-thesis-on-process-oriented-information-logistics

On July 22nd, 2015 Opens internal link in current windowBernd Michelberger successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled

Process-Oriented Information Logistics: Aligning Process Information with Business Processes

at Ulm University, Germany. The DBIS team is pleased to congratulate Bernd on his successful PhD defense and wishes him all the best for his future. Bernd's PhD co-advisors have been Opens internal link in current windowProf. Dr. Manfred Reichert (DBIS) and Opens external link in new windowProf. Dr. Bela Mutschler (University of Applied Science Ravensburg-Weingarten).

2015 07 22 PhD Defense Michelberger Main1

The thesis introduces process-oriented information logistics (POIL) as new paradigm for delivering the right process information, in the right format and quality, at the right place and the right point in time, to the right people. In particular, POIL allows for the process-oriented, context-aware (i.e., personalized) delivery of process information to process participants. The goal is to no longer manually hard-wire process information to business processes, but to automatically identify and deliver relevant process information to knowledge workers and decision makers. The core component of POIL is a semantic information network (SIN), which comprises homogeneous information objects (e.g., e-mails, oce les, guidelines), process objects (e.g., tasks, events, roles), and relationships between them. In particular, a SIN allows discovering objects linked with each other in di erent ways, e.g., objects addressing the same topic or needed when performing a particular process task. The SIN not only enables an integrated formal representation of process information and business processes, but also allows determining the relevance of process information for a given work context based on novel techniques and algorithms.
