Due to numerous requests we decided to extend the deadline for the
5th International Workshop on Event-Driven Business Process Management,
edBPM 2011 collocated with the BPM 2011 conference to May 27, 2011.

=====================================================================

Dear colleagues (with apologies for cross-posting),

you are invited to submit papers for the 5th International Workshop on
Event-Driven Business Process Management  to be held alongside the Busines
Process Management Conference on August 29th 2011 in Clermont-Ferrand,
France

<Event-Driven Business Process Management> (EDBPM) is 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 closing the loop of insight-to-action. 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. 


TOPICS

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, vent stream processing in business processes, process event
processing in CEP, data- and event-driven business processes, event and
process interaction patterns 
. Design-time CEP and BPM
e.g. modelling modelling events in human-oriented tasks,
semantics/ontologies for event-driven BPM, BPMN and event processing,
interaction modelling of process model and event processing network.
. Run-time CEP and BPM
e.g. event pattern detection, BPEL and event processing, reasoning about
unknown/ similar events 
. Applications/ Use use cases for event-driven BPM
e.g. event-driven monitoring/ BAM , event-driven SLA monitoring,
context-aware BPM


The Workshop is planned as a full-day event, including a keynote, paper
presentations, lightning talks, demos, posters, and a moderated, open
discussion with the clear goal of agreeing upon a research roadmap for
event-driven Business Process Management research, by taking into account
new challenges, described earlier.


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.
. Use case submissions, describing results from an edBPM use case. These
papers should be at most 4 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 / Use case).
Papers can be uploaded via the workshop page on easychair, the address can
be found on the workshop homepage.
Papers will be published in the postconference proceeding (Springer Verlag)
