Information about the workshop
-------------------------------

The recently coined term «Event-Driven Business Process Management» (EDBPM)
is nowadays an enhancement of Business Process Management (BPM) by new
concepts of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), Event Driven Architecture
(EDA), Software as a Service (SaaS), Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) and
Complex Event Processing (CEP). In this context BPM means a software
platform which provides companies the ability to model, manage, and optimize
these processes for significant gain. As an independent system, CEP is a
parallel running platform that analyses and processes events. The BPM- and
the CEP-platform correspond via events which are produced by the
BPM-workflow engine and by the – if distributed - IT services which are
associated with the business process steps. Also events coming from
different event sources in different forms can trigger a business process or
influence the execution of the process or a service, which can result in
another event. Even more, the correlation of these events in a particular
context can be treated as a complex, business level event, relevant for the
execution of other business processes or services. A business process –
arbitrarily fine or coarse grained – can be seen as a service again and can
be “choreographed” with other business processes or services, even between
different enterprises and organisations.

Loosely coupled event-driven architecture for BPM provides important
benefits: 

- Responsiveness. Events can occur at any time from any source and Processes
respond to them immediately, whenever they happen and wherever they happen. 
- Agility. New processes can be modeled, implemented, deployed, and
optimized more quickly in response to changing business requirements. 
- Flexibility. Processes can span heterogeneous platforms and programming
languages. Participating applications can be upgraded or changed without
breaking the process model. 

Authors are invited to submit novel contributions in the above mentioned
problem domain. Specifically, the relevant topics include, but are not
limited to:

- Event-driven BPM: Concepts e.g. Role of event processing in BPM, Business
Events: types and representation, Event stream processing in business
processes, Data- and event-driven business processes
- Design-time CEP and BPM e.g. Modelling events in human-oriented tasks,
Semantics/Ontologies for event-driven BPM, BPMN and event 	processing.
- Run-time CEP and BPM e.g. Event pattern detection, BPEL and event
processing, Reasoning about unknown/similar events
- Applications/Use cases for event-driven BPM e.g. Event-driven
monitoring/BAM , Event-driven SLA monitoring 

-------------------------------
Submission
-------------------------------

The following types of submission are solicited: 
- Long paper submissions, describing substantial contributions of novel
ongoing work. Long papers should be at most 12 pages long. 
- Short paper submissions, describing work in progress. These papers should
be at most 6 pages long.

Papers should be submitted in the new LNBIP format
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-487211-0). Papers have
to present original research contributions not concurrently submitted
elsewhere. The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of
the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an
indication of the submission category (Long Paper/ Short Paper). Papers can
be uploaded via the workshop page on easychair, the address can be found on
the workshop homepage (http://icep-edbpm09.fzi.de).

Selected papers will be published in the Special issue in Journal of
Software Process Improvement and Practice for selected BPM 2009 workshop
papers.
