CeBPM 2012 : Workshop on Cloud-enabled Business Process Management
Call For Papers
CALL FOR PAPERS
Workshop on Cloud-enabled Business Process Management
November 28th, 2012, Paphos, Cyprus
in conjunction with WISE2012
Cloud-enabled Business Process Management (CeBPM) is an emerging research area aiming to address the gap between the automatisation and optimization of business operations on one side and the offering of software service utilities needed to support such business operations on the other. Expected benefits of this endeavour are higher availability of business processes on demand, the scalable and elastic provision of needed resources and infrastructures, flexible implementation of new business processes relying on CeBPM platforms, lower startup costs for new enterprises and the possibility to chose and optimise the service utility based on non-functional requirements (e.g. reliability, security and so on). Therefore BPM in the Cloud is emerging as a set of new technologies that would facilitate the increasingly resource demanding daily business operations of enterprises. Along this line, there are new conceptual and technological barriers that must be solved in order to reach a certain level of maturity, including mechanisms for the authoring of new business operations from the business environment, which support innovation, interoperability solutions, techniques to deploy software utilities on the Cloud, the management of business processes extending over multiple Clouds.
In this context, CeBPM intends to be a forum for researchers and practitioners involved in Cloud-enabled business processes, allowing them to identify the latest progress in the field as well as future directions that need intensive research and development.
