1st International Workshop on Self Healing Process Aware Information Systems (SH-PAIS) in conjunction with ADBIS 2011 conference

In order to stay competitive, today’s enterprises more and more depend on the ability to react to changed economic environments, regulations and fast emerging new ideas. In order to stay successful it is necessary to adopt these changes fast. With the advent of cloud computing, and SOA's in general, enterprises gained access to powerful tools to realize the demanded flexibility and scalability on a pay per use basis. However the integration of cloud functionality into business processes remains still a tedious task. While there has been progress in distinct areas like Semantic Service Selection (OWL-S), Service Level Agreements (SLAs), Process Evolution and inter-organizational business processes, a coherent approach to assess and implement ad-hoc changes is yet a vision. We refer to self-healing as a combination of monitoring, situation evaluation, and repair capabilities that, under the premise of privacy in inter-organizational business processes, allows companies to reac!

t to QoS and SLA violations at runtime. Self-healing business processes are to withstand performance bottlenecks and failure without human interaction, yet still deliver correct results. In order to meet its business objectives, enterprises should not rely on only a single infrastructure provider, but instead be able to effortless replace them, in order to meet the current requirements of its partners and customers. The SH-PAIS workshop's goal is to bring together practitioners and researchers from different communities such as BPM, service-oriented computing, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence (semantic annotations and reasoning). The workshop aims at discussing the current state of ongoing research and sharing practical experiences.

Submitted papers (see Submission and Dates) will be evaluated by at least three program committee members on the basis of significance, originality and technical quality. The accepted papers will published in the LNCS series of Springer Verlag. Outstanding papers from the workshop may be invited for publication in an internationally recognized journal (subject to additional reviewing).

Papers should clearly establish the research contribution and the relation to previous research. The workshop will also provide opportunity for participants to present advanced prototypes based on their research.

Workshop topics include

process interoperability
process lifecycle management
process monitoring
process security and conformance
process matching and similarity of processes
cross-organizational collaborative processes
process choreographies
evolving choreographies
transactional models for choreography interactions
agile management of business processes
dynamic composition of processes
semantic annotations
semantic matchmaking
business compliance rule verification
QoS and service level agreements
SLA negotiation and re-negotiation
Submitted papers should be related to these topics in terms of:

methods and tools
Submission & Dates

Papers must be written in English. Each paper will be reviewed by at least three program committee members. Papers should contain original contributions not published or submitted elsewhere, and references to related state-of-the-art work. Authors of accepted papers must present the paper at SH-PAIS 2011 in order have the paper included in the post-conference proceedings. Papers must follow the Springer LNCS (? format and can contain up to 14 pages (including figures, tables and references). Papers should include a title, the name and affiliation of each author, an abstract of up to 150 words and no more than eight keywords.
