Germany's ICT founders competition reopened - submission deadline 30 Nov 2010

It was already the founding idea of the CITT "From student to entrepreneur" October 2005, based on a salade of acronyms like CEP, BPM, BAM, SOA, EDA, SaaS, Grid- and Cloud Computing in order to introduce and substantiate a new acronym edBPM. In the meantime it's actually commodity, although even BPM and CEP are still in the beginning of an industrial adoption.

Nonetheless, it might be a good time to start new enterprises based on the U-CEP ideas?

It's not so easy to be an entrepreneur, you must have a vision and you must be a bit crazy to spend your private money if you have any at all. But if you're young and are just starting your career, it could make much more fun than to gray as an employee of a Big Dog:-) Also the Government and the European Commission believe that the innovative ideas would substantially come from the SME's, although when they will perhaps be eaten by the Big Dogs later, as an innovative delicacy, and perhaps you will become rich and fly your private learjet or so, if you need this...

In continuation of our first edBPM workshop at the ServiceWave 2008 in Madrid December 2008, the second workshop is accepted for the next ServiceWave 2009, co-located with the ICSOC:
This workshop presents the challenges in realizing Event-Driven BPM and describe a conceptual reference model and a reference architecture for it. This workshop will also address the integration of Complex Events, the current and future movement on edBPM-related standards (including hands-on examples and first prototypes), and the challenges of dynamically starting, stopping, terminating or changing Internet services driven by events. We will discuss our "Basic concepts and objectives of Event-driven Adaptiveness of Service-based Systems (EASSy)".
We will also present the objectives of our use cases from different application domains like SmartNavigation, SmartCity, SmartLogistics, SmartTransportation, SmartHealthcare etc. and the interdependencies of the domains and their use cases.

And we will also present and discuss a Technology-Enhanced-Learning-approach for teaching/training edBPM worldwide. The approach aims to implement a *distributed curricular learning community* centered around so called *CloudBoxes* aka "Experiential Simulation sandbox hosted on cloud computing resources". Centered around an *interdisciplinary, fast moving field of research and business application* (like Event-driven Business Process Management) it creates an „opportunity/learning cloud“ for people to engage in different ways:

* formal tertiary education (paid by learner): pre-selected modules ("learning sets") for different master level courses with diploma
* on-demand education (paid by learner or employer): engage only in the modules you are interested in, get certificate on the level you need – there should be at least 3 levels of expertise to reach in a module (basic, intermediate, expert or something like this – comparable to the EU competence frameworks A2, B2, C1 and maybe C2)
* customer education (paid by product company – marketing/sales costs): get free access to one module to experience the product and get trained – pre- or post-sales.

IBM Haifa Research Labs has taken the coordinator role of EU-project proposal edBPM/DoReMoPat

IBM Haifa Research Labs has taken the coordinator role on 21st of March after our visit at Haifa. IBM or SAP were also the suggestions of our potential or already committed consortium partners and it was also the opinion of some evaluators or experienced attendees at the EU-events of ServiceWave08/Madrid, SSOKU09/Brussels and Proposers Day 09/Budapest. So, there is still a lot to do, but to find the right partner for the coordinator role was a very important step. And IBM HRL is not a new partner, but we are working together since the start of CITT in 2005 when Professor David Luckham made the contact to Dr. Opher Etzion/IBM HRL when we visited Stanford University for a first workshop with David. Opher then suggested a CEP/BPM-panel at the 1st CEP-symposium in March 2006 and asked me to chair the panel. This actually was the start of our edBPM-idea which we then continually developed as a new discipline of Event-Driven Business Process Management as an enhancement of BPM by the new concepts of especially Service Oriented Architecture, Event Driven Architecture, Software as a Service, Business Activity Monitoring and Complex Event Processing.

2nd Dagstuhl Seminar "Event Processing" May 16-20, 2010

Dagstuhl seminars, as many of you probably know, are very prestige, in the fact that a collection of people the are considered the top experts in a certain area are meeting in Schloss Dagstuhl, a relatively isolated castle in south west Germany, for four and half days to discuss the future and grand challenges of a certain area. There is a keen competition on slot in Dagstuhl. In May 2007, the first Dagstuhl seminar on event processing has been conducted, it was organized by two distinguished members of our community - Professor Mani Chandy and Dr. Rainer von Ammon, and myself. It has a strong participation from industry (actually - a record high for Dagstuhl) along with academic people. The results of that seminar was to determine the research challenges in that area. The same organizing team has applied for a second Dagstuhl seminar, and I am glad to tell you that our proposal has been accepted. This is a vote of confidence about the importance of this area to the larger computing community.

The way it was described in the proposal is, as follows:

The Dagstuhl seminar should be future looking. We hope to have a significant participation of industry participants (vendors, customers, analysts) in addition to academic people, in order to focus on macro level topics. Since the event processing as a discipline is relatively young, there is still work to shape it and determine:
o What are the current trends
o What are the big challenges
o What the research community should do in order to advance the area
o What are the boundaries and synergies with other areas
o What are the truly fundamental issues? Is there a theory of event processing? If so, how is it related to other theories and other fundamental concepts? What are the similarities in event processing in diverse areas such as discrete event simulation, graphic programming, concurrent computing, databases, sensor fusion, pub/sub system, parallel computing and others.

The end result should get us closer to the "event processing manifesto" defining the area, which will answer these questions.

The aim is to influence the direction in the future generations of products as well as the research agenda. The reports of the 2009 EPTS working groups will serve as an input for the seminar discussions. The seminar will be affiliated with EPTS.

Participation is by invitation only, and the list of invitees is carefully prepared in order to be able to achieve the seminar's goals.

We would like to maintain (and even increase) the level of participation from industry, and would like to solicit nominations for participation from EPTS members. If you are interested to participate or nominate any person from your company, please let us know (please add a short Bio).

"Vom statischen Geschäftsprozess (mit ARIS eEPK) zum ausführbaren Geschäftsprozess (BPM) bis zum Business Activity Monitoring (BAM)"

Am Beispiel eines Geschäftsprozesses (auch live an einem mitgebrachten Beispiel aus dem Publikum) wird gezeigt, warum und wie der GP fein granularer und in der Regel neu modelliert werden muß, um zu einem ausführbaren GP in einer sogenannten Enterprise Plattform zu werden. An die Arbeitsschritte des GP werden Services gemäß einer SOA angeschlossen. Dabei werden verschiedene Verfahren wie Webservices, Apdapter gemäß J2EE Connector Architecture etc. verwendet. Zuletzt wird ein Business Activity Monitor angeschlossen, der z.B. die Key Performance Indikatoren misst und in einem Dashboard darstellt. Dabei werden Konzepte und der Stand der Kunst bzgl. Single Event Triggering, Realtime Event Daten-Verarbeitung, Event Streams Processing, Complex Event Processing und Event Abstracting gezeigt.
