Call For Papers

Due to their concept agent technologies contribute to the intelligence of systems. Their self-contained design and network capabilities make them promising candidates to support and further develop highly functional, but networked organizations. Multi Agent Systems (MAS) can facilitate business processes within and across organizations. Applying agent technologies for specifying and deploying the behavior of process constituents, such as actors or data, could lead to sustained benefits in networked Business Process Management (BPM) environments. The challenge though is to intertwine agent concepts with compatible process management approaches, in particular Subject-oriented BPM (S-BPM). All stakeholders, addressing not only developers, but also process participants, need to be provided with an infrastructure to first build and then run, and finally, continuously adapt complex, distributed socio-technical systems. A direct intervention allows driving change processes by concerned stakeholders and be achieved by developing novel approaches to engineering Multi Agent Systems, suitable for both modeling by stakeholders and automated generation of executable process descriptions.

The workshop explores the potential of agent approaches, concepts and solutions to support business process management both at design time and at runtime. Contributions can address one or more activities of the BPM lifecycle being supported by agent technology.

Participants are invited to submit papers until May 04, 2014, in all areas related to agent systems in BPM, be it agent technology support of single BPM activities or of the whole BPM life cycle.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited
Various Aspects of interfacing BPM with Agent Technologies (frameworks, notations, interface definition languages, APIs, architectures, schemes, transformation techniques a.t.l.)
Agent Types for BPM activities (e.g., recommender agents)
Agent-based Business Process Modeling
Agent-based Business Process Validation, Simulation, Optimization
Agent-based Business Process Execution & Monitoring
Agent-based Negotiation of Business Process Issues (e.g., interfaces)
Issues in agent-based BPM environments (e.g., trust)
Agent-based Organizational Development
Agent-based Engineering Process Management
