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.

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.

PhD Thesis on Business Process Compliance

On April 25, 2013 Linh Thao Ly successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled

“SeaFlows - A Compliance Checking Framwork for Supporting the Process Lifecycle”

at the University of Ulm, Germany. The DBIS team is pleased to congratulate Thao on her successful PhD defense and wishes her all the best for his future. Thao's PhD advisor and PhD promotor has been Prof. Dr. Stefanie Rinderle-Ma (DBIS alumni, see picture together with Thao).

2013-04-25 Thao Defense

In her PhD, Thao Ly developed a framework for supporting business process compliance along the complete process lifecycle. Starting with the process design phase, SeaFlows provides solutions for capturing compliance requirements and for enriching process models with imposed compliance rules. Going beyond pure compliance rule documentation, SeaFlows enables the verification of process models but also already running process instances against imposed compliance rules.
Thao's did her research in the context of the Seaflows project, partially funded by DFG and conducted in close cooperation with the University of Vienna, Research Group Workflow Systems and Technology.

Members of the PhD committee:

  •     Prof. Dr. Uwe Schöning (Chairman)
  •     Prof. Dr. Stefanie Rinderle-Ma (Promotor and First Referee)
  •     Prof. i.R. Dr. Friedrich W. von Henke (Second Referee)
