Aims and Scope: Academia and Industry

Current complexity of corporative world demands dynamic and flexible IT infrastructure to provide technical solutions for conducting business. Business Process Management (BPM) has been providing important technological support to improve organization competitiveness. In order to increase dynamism and competitiveness, BPM can benefit from reuse techniques and tools at several stages of business process life cycle.

The 3rd International Workshop on Reuse in Business Process Management will be dedicated to explore any type of reuse in the BPM domain, taking into account both the results of research in academia and the results of applications in industry.

It will be a forum to discuss systematic reuse applied to BPM at its various levels and different life cycle stages, including:

  1. basic service-oriented foundation level: including service development, description, publication, discovery, selection, negotiation, and aggregation;
  2. management and monitoring upper level: including business process modeling, execution, monitoring, administration, and optimization.

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

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 novel approaches and techniques can be proposed. Their application must also be discussed, preferably under experimentation as well as results analysis.
