taprovizManfred Reichert was invited keynote speaker of the Int'l Workshop on Theory and Applications of Process Visualization (TaProViz'12), which took place in the context of the BPM'12 conference in Tallinn, Estland. In his keynote, Manfrd addressed the visualization of large and complex process models. He discussed the core challenges to be tackled in this context, followed by a presentation of concrete techniques and application examples, e.g., for abstracting complex process models. The latter were developed in the DBIS projects Proviado and proView. In particular, updatable process views as enabled in proView will allow users to adapt and change process models (see Chapters 7 and 9 of our book) based on related high-level abstractions.

The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.
