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 http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/202-the-danube-connects-each-other-uulm-successfully-collaborates-with-viennese-universities http://www.flexible-processes.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.

Invited Keynote at the International Workshop on Modeling Inter-Organizational Processes, 19 March 2014, University of Vienna

Abstract
The economic success of companies more and more depends on their ability to rapidly implement new business processes as well as to flexibly adapt existing processes to changes in their environment. While modeling and flexibility issues of internal company processes are well understood nowadays, the controlled change of the interactions between partner processes in a collaborative setting (i.e., cross-organizational process) has not been sufficiently considered so far. If one partner changes its internal process in an uncontrolled manner, inconsistencies or errors regarding its interactions with the other partners might occur. Additionally, compliance of the changed cross-organizational process and the partner interactions, respectively, with imposed regulations and laws need to be guaranteed. As a particular challenge, the private parts of the internal partner processes are hidden to the other partners and hence are unknown to them.
This keynote will discuss research challenges to be tackled in this context. Further, it will give insights into selected results from the C³Pro research project which aims to enable change and compliance for cross-organizational processes.

Keynote by Manfred Reichert at BPM 2014 Workshop http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/168-keynote-by-manfred-reichert-at-bpm-2014-workshop http://www.flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/168-keynote-by-manfred-reichert-at-bpm-2014-workshop

Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert was invited keynote speaker of the Opens external link in new windowInternational Workshop on Business Processes in Collective Adaptive Systems (BPCAS’14), which was held in conjunction with the Opens external link in new windowBPM 2014 conference.  BPM 2014 took place in Eindhoven from September 8 – 11, 2014.  It is the 12th conference in a series that provides the most prestigious forum for researchers and practitioners in the field of Business Process Management (BPM). Due to the unstable situation in Southern Israel, BPM 2014 was relocated from Haifa, Israel, to Eindhoven.

In his keynote, Manfred reported on the challenges related to adaptive collective process-aware information systems and some of the technologies our DBIS Institute has developed to enable such systems. The socio-technical fabric of our society more and more depends on systems that are constructed as a collective of heterogeneous components and that are tightly entangled with humans and social structures. Their components increasingly need to be able to evolve, collaborate and function as a part of an artificial society. 



Initiates file downloadManfred Reichert - Collective Adaptive Process-Aware Systems: Challenges, Scenarios, Techniques
Invited Keynote, Int'l Workshop on Business Processes in Collective Adaptive Systems (BPCAS'14), Eindhoven, 8 September 2014

Background:
Industry is increasingly demanding coordination support for adaptive process structures consisting of large collections of autonomous, interacting processes. Engineering a car, for example, requires the coordination of development processes for hundreds of car components across organizational borders. Each of these development processes itself comprises a number of interdependent processes for designing, testing, and releasing the respective component. Usually, the resulting process structure becomes very large and is characterized by a strong relation with the assembly of the product. A particular challenge of any collective adaptive process-aware system supporting this kind of scenario is to allow for dynamic adaptations of single autonomous processes, while preservering the consistency of its interactions with other dependent processes. This keynote talk will discuss the challenges emerging in this context. Further, it will give insights into advanced techniques tackling these challenges and enabling advanced support for collective, adaptive and process-aware systems.
