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

In the morning session, we will start with a short introduction of the tables and their ideas.
According to the World Café method the following table guests could start the first round in the afternoon.
After around 30 minutes the guests would rotate to another table (except the host), so everybody would contribute to every table.
At the end of the workshop, each table presents its results and the concept of the paper publication.
If you would like to take the role of a table host, please let us know.
