************************************************************************
DEADLINE APPROACHING:  ABSTRACT SUBMISSION FEB. 1ST
************************************************************************
CALL FOR PAPERS

International Journal on Business Process Integration and Management
Special issue on Dynamic and Declarative Business Processes
************************************************************************

DESCRIPTION

The capability of rapidly adapting systems and processes to an
ever-changing environment to leverage existing resources has become a
crucial factor of an organization's agility. The traditional approach to
process management is only partially appropriate to this new context,
and calls for the advent of new, dynamic business processes. Broad
business policies or narrower constraints of technical nature make
dynamic business process particularly suited to a declarative approach
to their modelling and design.

This special issue will be an opportunity to promote research on any
aspect broadly touching dynamic and declarative approaches to business
process management and serviceoriented architectures. A particular
interest will be taken in bridging theoretical research and practical
issues. To this end, evaluated contributions addressing the open
problems, case studies, applications and evaluations of well-established
formalisms in new contexts or any other work assessing the practical
significance of dynamic and declarative business processes by means of
concrete examples and situations, will be particularly welcome.

TOPICS

We solicit high-quality contributions with consolidated and thoroughly
evaluated research results in the area of declarative and dynamic
business processes that are worthy of archival publication in the
International Journal of Business Process Integration Management. The
topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

- Dynamic/declarative business process modelling
- Implementation issues for dynamic/declarative processes
- Tools for dynamic/declarative processes
- Real-world use cases of dynamic/declarative business processes
- Business rules and policies
- Rule driven business process engines
- Business + technical requirements for dynamic/declarative processes
- Dynamic/declarative model specification
- Mathematical foundations of dynamic/declarative business processes
- Formal models of dynamic/declarative business processes
- Monitoring of dynamic/declarative business processes
- Validation and model checking of dynamic/declarative business
  processes
- Software engineering methods, languages, and standards for dynamic and
  declarative business processes;
- Service-oriented architectures and dynamic/declarative business
  processes
- Interoperability for dynamic/declarative business processes
- Semantic Web and ontologies and declarative and dynamic
  business processes
- Collaboration and declarative/dynamic business processes
