As of January 1st, 2016, Opens internal link in current windowManfred Reichert handed over the chair of the Opens external link in new windowGI SIG EMISA (Special Interest Group on Development Methods for Information Systems and their Application) to his colleagues Opens external link in new windowJan Mendling (Vienna University of Economics and Business) and Opens external link in new windowStefanie Rinderle-Ma (University of Vienna).

Over the last decade, Manfred Reichert actively shaped the development of the EMISA SIG, first in his role as deputy chair and editor-in-chief of the Opens external link in new windowEMISA Forum (2007 – 2012), then in his role as EMISA SIG chair (2013 – 2015). Furthermore, he was PC co-chair of the EMISA workshops held in 2007 and 2012. During his period of office, all annual meetings of the EMISA SIG took place in neighboring countries (Vienna, St. Gallen, Luxembourg, and Innsbruck). A few years ago, he edited a special issue of EMISA Forum on the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the EMISA SIG.

Manfred Reichert is a full professor at the University of Ulm and has been involved in the BPM conference series since its inception. He organized BPM 2009 in Ulm, was PC chair in 2008, and
contributed to our conference series in many other ways (e.g., as General Workshop Chair in 2015 and Doctoral Consortium Chair in 2012).

Both Stefanie and Manfred were coauthors of the paper “Evaluation of Correctness Criteria for Dynamic Workflow Changes” presented at BPM 2003 . This paper won the first BPM Test of Time Award.

Given their strong commitment to the BPM community, Stefanie and Manfred are looking forward to working with the other BPM SC members (see http://bpm-conference.org/ for a list of all ten SC members).

The Danube connects each other: UULM Successfully Collaborates with Viennese Universities http://flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/202-the-danube-connects-each-other-uulm-successfully-collaborates-with-viennese-universities http://flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/202-the-danube-connects-each-other-uulm-successfully-collaborates-with-viennese-universities

As in previous years, there has been a fruitful collaboration between the Opens internal link in current windowInstitute of Databases and Information Systems (DBIS) and three Viennese Universities in 2015, which resulted in a number of excellent joint publications.

Traditionally, there has been a close collaboration between DBIS and Opens external link in new windowProf. Stefanie Rinderle-Ma's chair of Opens external link in new windowWorkflow Systems and Technology from the University of Vienna. Currently, in the joint research project Opens internal link in current windowC³Pro, researchers from both groups are developing an advanced framework for collaborative business processes, which ensures compliance along the entire process lifecycle, particularly in connection with cross-organizational processes and process changes -- C³Pro is co-funded by the German Research  Foundation  (DFG) and the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). In 2015, the C3Pro project team has already published several papers, including an article in the Information Systems journal [2] and two high quality papers in the ER 2015 [2] und IEEE SCC 2015 [3] conference proceedings.

Manfred Reichert and Stefanie Rinderle-Ma

Besides this long-running cooperation with the University of Vienna, there has been another intense collaboration with Opens external link in new windowProf. Jan Mendling and Opens external link in new windowDr. Cristina Cabanillas from the Vienna University of Economics and Business, which has resulted in a joint paper [4] at the CAiSE 2015 conference in Stockholm. In this paper, which is also co-authored by colleagues from the University of Seville, a graphical notation for resource assignments in business processes has been introduced.

Finally, together with Opens external link in new windowProf. Silvia Miksch from the Technical University of Vienna as well as other European colleagues, Manfred Reichert has been co-organizer of the Opens external link in new windowKR4HC 2015 / ProHealth 2015 international workshop, which focuses on process and knowledge support in healthcare information systems. The proceedings of this year's workshop will appear soon in the Springer LNAI series (see [5, 6] for previous proceedings of this workshop series).

The DBIS team is looking forward to continuing these collaborations with its Viennese partners.

Workshop on Compliance, Evolution, and Security in Cross-Organizational Processes http://flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/180-workshop-on-compliance-evolution-and-security-in-cross-organizational-processes http://flexible-processes.com/index.php/item/180-workshop-on-compliance-evolution-and-security-in-cross-organizational-processes

Opens internal link in current windowProf. Dr. Manfred Reichert and Opens internal link in current windowDavid Knuplesch are co-organizers of the  Opens external link in new window1st Int’l Workshop on Compliance, Evolution and Security in Cross-Organizational Processes (CeSCoP 2014), which will be held in conjunction with the  Opens external link in new windowEnterprise Computing Conference (EDOC 2014) in Ulm at September 1, 2014. Manfred and David share the chair with Opens external link in new windowProf. Dr. Stefanie Rinderle-Ma (University of Vienna), Opens external link in new windowDr. Walid Fdhila (University of Vienna) and Johannes Reich (SAP). 

About CeSCoP
Globalization and competitive pressure created the need for collaborations among business partners who join their forces and combine their services in order to provide added-value products. Coming along with benefits of such cross-organizational collaborations, companies encounter tough challenges as they have to cope with demanding security, adaptation, compliance and privacy requirements. The CeSCoP workshop focuses on the research problems faced in cross-organizational processes as well as it aims to support investigation and novel solutions with regard to the specific requirements arising in this context. 

The workshop's purpose is to offer a portal for researchers and practitioners to discuss and contribute research dedicated to the investigation to the main requirements of cross-organizational processes (e.g., modeling, flexibility, monitoring, etc.).

Further details and the call for papers can be found on the  Opens external link in new windowworkshop's webseite.

Invited Keynote at the International Workshop on Modeling Inter-Organizational Processes, 19 March 2014, University of Vienna

Abstract
The economic success of companies more and more depends on their ability to rapidly implement new business processes as well as to flexibly adapt existing processes to changes in their environment. While modeling and flexibility issues of internal company processes are well understood nowadays, the controlled change of the interactions between partner processes in a collaborative setting (i.e., cross-organizational process) has not been sufficiently considered so far. If one partner changes its internal process in an uncontrolled manner, inconsistencies or errors regarding its interactions with the other partners might occur. Additionally, compliance of the changed cross-organizational process and the partner interactions, respectively, with imposed regulations and laws need to be guaranteed. As a particular challenge, the private parts of the internal partner processes are hidden to the other partners and hence are unknown to them.
This keynote will discuss research challenges to be tackled in this context. Further, it will give insights into selected results from the C³Pro research project which aims to enable change and compliance for cross-organizational processes.
