„From Event-Driven Business Process Management to
Ubiquitous Complex Event Processing“


co-located with ServiceWave 2010
Ghent, 13 December 2010

Attendance was restricted to 20 because of the WorldCafe and an active role of the participants.
In order to prepare the brainstorming at the tables of the WorldCafe, a documentation of extended abstracts and detailed outlines of the tables was provided in advance. Full papers including the results of the table discussions should be submitted until the end of January 2011.
For the most, it was their first time to participate in a WorldCafe. Info about World Café method:
At first, Rainer von Ammon introduced what it means
"From Event-Driven Business Process Management to Ubiquitous Complex Event Processing"

In principle, edBPM means two different platforms, BPM and CEP, which run in parallel whereby a concert of collaborating processes is managed by the real-time analysis of an event cloud or event streams and where another event as a result of this Complex Event Processing may be generated and be inserted to a process or more processes whose process flow may be dynamically influenced according to a taxonomy which is sketched e.g. in the provided documentation.
This is quite more complex than to model and manage a single business process, even between different partners and enterprises on the basis of swimlanes and pools. We also distinguish there between deterministic and non-deterministic approaches for use cases like fraud management where we have to react on so far unknown, but suspicious event patterns which must trigger accordant processes to manage such situations adequately and in near time.
Since 2009, an analogous concept was suggested to be transferred to non-business Ubiquitous CEP domains like Epigenetics, Cell Biology, Brain Research, Robotics and Cyborgs, etc., what was the actual, enhanced idea of this workshop.

Andree Ehresmann (U Picardie Jules Verne, France) introduced a formal, mathematical model for edBPM and U-CEP - as a precondition for a higher abstraction level.

To fully understand it, you must read it carefully and also follow the concepts and links which Andree has referenced like
and also what Andree and her colleague Jean-Paul Vanbremeersch are researching within the last decades:

Before starting the brainstorming at the tables, the topics of every table and the related papers were introduced.

Bernhard Seeger (U Marburg, Germany) introduced table 1 "New Modeling and Execution Approaches for edBPM/U-CEP in New Application Domains and New Applications"

Manfred Grauer (U Siegen, Germany)

and Daniel Metz presented an example of the State of the Art from the manufacturing domain and what we can do today based on CEP.

Willem De Roover (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, Belgium) talked about "A Transformation from SBVR Business rules into Event Coordinated Rules by means of SBVR Patterns"


Unfortunately we don't have usable pictures from all, like from Vaclav Repa (U Prague) who introduced his idea about "Building the Process-managed Organization by Means of Services"

John Sutcliffe-Braithwaite (U Reading, UK) introduced table 2 "Socio Techno systems and U-CEP"

To this table 2 we sorted the extended abstracts of Nana Karlstetter (U Oldenburg, Germany)
and Junpeng Bao, Yong Qi, Di Hou and Hui He (Jiaotong U, China)

Plamen Simeonov (Berlin) introduced table 5 "Understanding Life: New Biology, Epigenetics, Cell Biology and U-CEP"


Working at the tables in different rounds with different contributors...

Andree Ehresmann (U Picardie Jules Verne), Jaime Gomez (U Madrid), Plamen Simeonov (Berlin), John Sutcliffe-Braithwaite (U Reading), Septimiu Nechifor (Siemens Brasov)

Leslie Smith (U Stirling), Pedro Bizarro (U Coimbra)

Bernhard Seeger (U Marburg), Martin Grauer (U Siegen), Paul Vincent (TIBCO London), Daniel Metz, Sachin Karadgi (U Siegen)

Septimiu Nechifor (Siemens Brasov), Florian Springer (Senacor AG Nürnberg/CITT), Behrooz Mobasheri, Shahrokh Mosheni (DTAG London/Bonn)

at table 3 "Human Enhancement Technologies and U-CEP" and table 6 "Robot companions for citizens, Autonomous Cyborgs and U-CEP", which were combined.

Martin Grauer, Daniel Metz (U Siegen)

Andree Ehresmann (U Picardie Jules Verne), Vaclav Repa (U Prague), Jaime Gomez (U Madrid), Plamen Simeonov (Berlin), John Sutcliffe-Braithwaite (U Reading), Septimiu Nechifor (Siemens Brasov)

This was the tablecloth of table 6 after the brainstorming:-) Before we agreed with the extended outline, we first discussed why it's so challenging to bring the "Big Dogs" like Large Enterprises into the "FET 2020 and Beyond Initiative" - committed to the 1 Billion budget - and how we could solve the problem. In the left corner above we see that an engagement and time horizon of more than five years is a serious problem for them. So we mainly discussed how to convince Big Dogs that there is a benefit of edBPM/U-CEP right now already and why they should join these technologies as first movers.
