In Conjunction with BPM 2010 (The 8th International Conference on Business Process Management)

=== Aims and Scope ===

The current complexity inherent in the corporative world demands a great dynamism from the IT infrastructure in order to provide technical solutions for conducting business. Business Process Management (BPM), including its service-oriented foundation, has been providing important technological support to improve organization competitiveness. In order to increase dynamism and competitiveness, BPM can benefit from reuse approaches and techniques at several stages of business process life cycle.

The 1st International Workshop on Reuse in Business Process Management will be dedicated to explore any type of reuse in the Business Process Management domain. Therefore, it will be a forum to discuss systematic reuse applied to BPM at its various levels:

1. the basic service-oriented foundation level – including issues such as service development, description, publication, discovery and selection;
2. the service composition level – encompassing service negotiation and service aggregation;
3. the management and monitoring upper level – including business process modeling, execution, monitoring, and contract establishment and enactment;
4. the Quality of Service and Semantics orthogonal level.

Moreover, the impact of reuse on business- and service-oriented engineering as well as how it can help in the design of more high-quality process models are very important topics to be discussed in this workshop.

Different existing reuse approaches and techniques can be extended to be applied to this fairly new domain, including: software product line or software product families; variability descriptors; design patterns such as feature modeling; aspect-orientation; and component-based development. In addition, completely new approaches and techniques can be proposed. Their use must also be discussed, preferably under experimentation as well as results analysis.

=== Suggested Topics ===

Possible topics for the workshop papers are (but are not restricted to):

* Product Lines (Product Families) for BPM
* Patterns for business process and workflows
* Variability descriptors applied in BPM elements
* Feature modeling applied in BPM elements
* Aspect-oriented extensions for BPM
* Component-based Development and Service and Business-oriented Engineering
* Reuse in Service-oriented Architecture (SOA)
* Reuse in service development, negotiation, composition
* Quality of Service (QoS) and Reuse
* Reuse in SaaS (Software as a Service) approaches
* Reusable asset libraries for BPM
* Reuse in semantic Web services
* Empirical findings related to reuse in the BPM domain
* Surveys related to reuse in the BPM domain
* Reuse in business process modeling, execution, monitoring
* Reuse in electronic contract establishment
