2016, 5-6 September, Vienna, Austria
International Workshop on Evolutionary Business Processes

Dear colleague,

The 9th International Workshop on Evolutionary Business Processes (EVL-BP 2016) will be held in Vienna, Austria on 5-6 September 2016, in conjunction with the 20th IEEE EDOC Conference.

Submission deadline 20 May 2016

The EVL-BP workshop series is devoted to evolution in business processes. Enterprises face the challenge of rapidly adapting to dynamic business environments. This workshop attempts to address specific issues related to flexibility and adaptation such as design of easily adaptable processes, dynamic handling of unexpected situations, optimality of adaptations, and change management.

Evolution in business processes takes place in a wide number of domains, and is expected to impact existing and future technology choices, business practices and standardisation efforts. This workshop will be an opportunity for participants to exchange opinions, advance ideas, and discuss preliminary results on current topics related to dynamic and declarative business processes. A particular interest will be taken in bridging theoretical research and practical issues. To this end, contributions stating open problems, case studies, tool presentations, or any other work assessing the practical significance of dynamic business processes will be particularly welcome. Work in progress or position papers stating broad avenues of research are also sought-after.

Suggested areas include, but are not limited to:
- Evolutionary business process modelling
- Dynamic business process specification
- Implementation issues for evolutionary processes
- Tools for evolutionary processes
- Methodologies for evolutionary processes
- Variability management in adaptable business processes
- Real-world use cases of evolutionary business processes
- Business rules and policies
- Rule driven business process engines
- Business + technical requirements for evolutionary processes
- Mathematical foundations of evolutionary business processes
- Formal models of dynamic business processes
- Monitoring of dynamic business processes
- Validation and model checking of dynamic business processes
- Software engineering methods, languages, and standards for dynamic business processes
- Service-oriented architectures and dynamic business processes
- Interoperability for dynamic business processes
- Semantic Web and ontologies and evolutionary business processes
- Collaboration and evolutionary business processes
- Data-driven process evolution
- Evolution of cross-organisational processes / process choreographies
- Complex event processing models / support for dynamic business processes

Important Dates
Paper submissions: May 20, 2016
Acceptance notifications: June 13, 2016
Camera-ready due: July 1, 2016

Submission Guidelines
All submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. Submissions should be 8-10 pages long and must use the two-column format of IEEE conference proceedings and include the author’s name, affiliation, and contact details. Papers must be submitted as PDF files using EasyChair https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=evlbp2016.

EDOC 2016 Workshops Publication
Authors will be notified about the decision by the program committee. At least one author of each accepted paper must participate in the workshop. The papers accepted for the EDOC 2016 Workshops will be published with their own ISBN in the IEEE Digital Library (pending approval by IEEE), which is accessible by IEEE Xplore. For any questions regarding this workshop, please contact the chairs on evlbp2016 at easychair.org.

We look forward to seeing you at Evolutionary Business Processes 2016.
