Call For Papers

CMSoEA'09 is organised in
conjunction with the 2d International Conference on Business Process and
Service Computing (BPSC) on March 23-24, 2009, Leipzig.

The goal of the CMSoEA
workshop is to clarify the relationship between business process management and
service provisioning. The objective is twofold:

(i) To characterise the
strong relationship existing between Business Process Management and Service
oriented Enterprise Architecture

(ii) To study and to
develop concepts, methods and architectures in order to manage the life cycle
of services and of their support system.

The Call for Papers can be
downloaded in few days from the BPSC'09 Web site :

In the meantime, it is
available at

Best regards,

Selmin Nurcan

CMSoEA'09 co-organiser

Services have become an impressive
factor for growth and the creation of jobs. 93% of the new jobs created in the
U.S. between 1970 and 2000 are jobs in services. Leading enterprises in the
U.S. derive more than 50% of their revenues from services. This applies not
only to pure services, such as transportation. but also to material products
that are augmented by services such as maintenance, consulting and training. Through
these services, enterprises stabilize their revenues. Therefore it is no
surprise that the scientific interest in services has grown rapidly and has led
to the creation of a services science. Furthermore, service-oriented practice
collections such as ITILV3 or standards such as ISO/IEC 20000 have gained much
influence in industry.

At the same time, services have
become popular as modules for enterprise architecture. An enterprise
architecture defines the interaction between business and information
technology. It describes the elements of this interaction and their possible
aggregations. Thus, a service-oriented enterprise architecture uses service to
describe the interaction of business and information technology. A service is
defined as ?the application of specialized competences (knowledge and skills)
for the benefit of another entity, rather than the production of units of
output? .? It is important to note, that
services are much more than just ?rpc with a longer wire? as found in some
interpretations of so-called Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA).

Whereas services are the basic
abstraction of service-oriented enterprise architecture, service systems
consider the context necessary to deliver a service. A service system is
defined ?as a value co-production configuration of people, technology, other
internal and external service systems, and shared information (such as
language, processes, metrics, prices, policies, and laws)?. Wikipedia defines a
service system as ?a configuration of technology and organizational networks
designed to deliver services that satisfy the needs, wants, or aspirations of
customers?. Another approach in the context of service-oriented enterprise
architecture is Business Service Management. It is an approach for aligning
services provided by information technology with the business strategy.

A service oriented enterprise
architecture also requires a new class of support systems? service management systems. Comparable to a
business process management system, they have to support the creation,
administration and execution of services. Thus, they must be able to store the
service definitions and make them available for stakeholder in a service
catalogue. The same applies to the so-called service-level agreements that
define the quality of service agreed upon with customers. Upon a service
request from a customer, the process which produces this service has to be
instantiated according to the service level agreements and provided to the
customer. During process execution, the service support system has to monitor
the fulfilment of the service-level agreements; remediation procedures contain
so-called escalation mechanisms. Based on the monitoring, improvement
procedures shall be established.
