Secial Session - Process-aware Intelligent Environments

Special Session - Process-aware Intelligent Environments

In information systems, business process management has demonstrated to provide a number of advantages for enterprises management. Business processes provide an unified, integrated view of diverse units’ activities, focusing on the overall goal.

The introduction of process models and related methodologies in different aspects of an IE can bring a number of advantages, related to an integrated view of the activities and goals for which the IE itself has been set: novel process-aware methodologies for the integration of information coming from sensors, more flexible management of environmental intelligence, process-based modular and flexible design, process-oriented context awareness.

This special session aims at providing a forum to discuss innovative ideas related to the introduction of process management principles in IE.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • business process management methodologies and models for IE
  • process-oriented design of IE
  • process mining techniques for IE
  • process-driven IE architectures
  • process-aware IE
  • process-oriented context awareness
  • process-driven sensor data integration
  • business process performance methodologies and models for IE
  • QoS and Service Level Agreement in IE
  • models and methodologies for the integration of edge computing and cloud computing in process-aware IE
  • orchestration and composition of sensors, actuators and other external services (e.g. weather information) and alignment with process performance in IE
  • privacy and security issues in IE
  • inter-environment processes
  • applications and case studies in relevant domains (e.g., ambient assisted living, industry 4.0, building automation, smart cities,…)


Paper should be submitted electronically in pdf format via the IE 2018 submission system:

Papers submitted to the special session go through the same review process of the main conference. Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
