Information Technologies in their broad sense have been profoundly changing
the ways, the processes and the philosophies of businesses. Adaptive
business applications support processes whose workflows, user interfaces and
business rules often change. The need for these dynamic applications is
greater now than ever before and business systems in every perspective,
management, workflow, information, infrastructure, etc. are evolving
themselves towards being autonomic, adaptive, self-managing,
self-organizing, and so forth. Emerging technologies such business rules
management systems, complex event processing engines, event-driven business
process management tools, corporate semantic web technologies, etc. are now
gaining increasing momentum as they promise enhanced adaptive and agility
capabilities to businesses, in order to sense unexpected environmental
changes and to respond to business opportunities or to avoid business risks
that turn up in a turbulent and quickly changing business environment.


ABIS 2009 aims to provide a premier forum for stimulating exchange and
in-depth discussion of advances, challenges and emerging areas in adaptive
business information systems.
