4th International Workshop on Event-Driven Business Process Management


collocated with BPM 2010


Hoboken, NJ, USA from September 13-16, 2010








The recently coined term «Event-Driven Business Process Management» (EDBPM)

is nowadays an enhancement of 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 a 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 organizations.


Loosely coupled event-driven architecture for BPM provides significant



    * 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.



Workshop Themes



Authors are invited to submit novel contributions in the prior described

problem domain.


    * Event-driven BPM: Concepts

          o Role of event processing in BPM

          o Business Events: types and representation

          o Event stream processing in business processes

          o Data- and event-driven business processes

          o Evaluation/ROI of event-driven BPM

          o Event-driven SOA

          o EDA and BPM

          o Real/time awareness in BPM

          o Context in BPM

    * Design-time CEP and BPM

          o Modelling languages, notations and methods for event-driven BPM

          o Event Patterns: Definition / Creation / Representation /


          o BPMN and event processing

          o Modelling unknown/similar events in business processes

          o Modelling events in human-oriented tasks

          o Semantics/Ontologies for event-driven BPM

          o Publish/subscription mechanism and process modelling

    * Run-time CEP and BPM

          o Event pattern detection

          o BPEL and event processing

          o Reasoning about unknown/similar events

          o Distributed event processing

          o Dynamic workflows

          o Ad-hoc workflows

    * Applications/Use cases for event-driven BPM

          o Event-driven monitoring/BAM

          o Event-driven SLA monitoring

          o Domains: Logistics, Automotive, …

          o Event processing and Internet of Services



Workshop Format



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.

A possible agenda:


    * 9:00 – 9:30 Opening and Keynote

    * 9:30 – 13:00 Paper Presentations

    * 13:00 – 14:00 Lunch

    * 14:00 – 15:00 Lightning Talks

    * 15:30 – 17:00 Moderated Community Discussion: A Roadmap for

Event-driven Business Process Management Research

    * 18:00 – 21:00 Poster and Demo Presentations and Get-Together


For the keynote, we aim at a high-profile speaker, who will give a rather

visionary view on the role of Future Internet for BPM and vice versa. For

the moderated community discussion, we will have senior experts from our

Program Committee and Experts from an industrial background. A clear

objective of that discussion is to yield a first draft of a respective

research agenda.



Important Dates



Deadline paper submissions:  21 May 2010


Notification of acceptance: 30 June 2010


Camera-ready papers: 25 July 2010


Workshops: 13 September 2010






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.
