6th International Workshop on Semantic Business Process Management
Ontology-based semantics have shown, as documented in five previous iterations of the SBPM workshop, a high degree of automation in the management of the business process space of single enterprises and whole value chains. A key source of problems in the "pre-semantic" BPM domain is in the representational heterogeneities between the various perspectives and the various stages in the life-cycles of business processes. Typical examples are incompatible representations of the managerial vs. the IT perspective, or the gap between normative modeling for compliance purposes and process execution log data.
In this workshop, we want to bring together experts from the relevant communities and help reach agreement on a roadmap for SBPM research. We aim at bundling experiences and prototypes from the successful application of Semantic Web technology to BPM in various industries, like automotive, engineering, chemical and pharmaceutical, and services domains. Additionally we encourage visionary papers regarding the future of semantics for BPM.
