Background and Goals
Business process management (BPM) technologies are considered as one of the key success stories in providing process control and monitoring functions, and addressing complex integration requirements in enterprise systems. However, the expectation of what this technology must deliver is a moving target. Whereas the success of coordinative processes depends upon the conformance to the prescribed control flow, the success of the collaborative process depends upon the ability to detect and react to changing conditions. What was true for workflow systems is no longer acceptable in the dynamic and cross organizational requirements for management of collaborative processes.

BPM has become a very extensive area with several specialized aspects. This workshop intends to provide a forum wherein challenges in modelling and deployment of specifically collaborative business processes can be debated. We seek papers that present innovative technology solutions to these challenges, but based on well justified practical assumptions, and sound theoretical foundations.

Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. Papers should clearly establish the research contribution, and relation to previous research. Position and survey papers are also welcome.

Topics of interest
This year we particularly solicit approaches to collaborative business process management that are based on event driven architecture Below we provide a list of relevant topics, however papers outside these topics but within the general scope of the workshop scope will still be considered.

• Technologies for modeling and analysis of collaborative processes
• E-service coordination and composition models
• Cross-organizational process management
• Event driven process management
• Adaptive process management
• Context-aware collaborative processes
• Ontological aspects of collaborative processes
• Knowledge management in collaborative processes
• Middleware for collaborative process management
• Architectures and implementations for collaborative processes
• EAI and B2B technologies
• Usability and technology adoption of BPM solutions
• Business Process Scenarios: Description, Analysis, Classification

Format of the Workshop
The workshop will consist of oral presentations, discussions, and invited talks. The workshop will also provide opportunity for demo sessions, where presenters can showcase advanced prototypes based on their research.

Submission of Papers
All papers must be written in English, and the length of the paper should not exceed 5,000 words or 10 pages (including figures and tables). Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex format) are available at the ICEIS web site. Papers (in PDF format) should be submitted online through the ICEIS online submission system. In addition, an email must be sent to all workshop chairs including: title, authors' affiliation, and an abstract of the paper submitted.

Workshop Proceedings
All accepted papers will be published in workshop proceedings book with an ISBN#, which will be printed by ICEIS Press. The proceedings will be available at the time of the workshop. After the event, contacts will be made with an International Journal to publish a selection of best papers.
