                               CALL FOR PAPERS

                         2nd International Workshop on 
            Robustness Injection into Business Processes

    	   		        http://www.mri-bp.org <http://www.mri-bp.org/> 
                      May 13th 2015, Montreal, Canada
	    At the 6th MCETECH International Conference 


The objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in business process robustness and in methodologies for injecting robustness artifacts and mechanisms (exception handling activities, service level agreements, compensation processes, etc.) in process models through assistive or automated techniques. The workshop seeks contributions that have used reasoning on process semantics, discovery of process attributes (performance, organizational), proactive BAM models, and process repair and extension, for the purpose of enhancing the resilience of a process model or of the modeling process.

The first edition of MRI-BP took place at the EDOC’2013 conference was a great success. Indeed, many interesting and high quality works were presented and one of the workshop’s papers received the Best Paper Award from EDOC conference organizers (the distinction was awarded to the best paper amongst all workshops that took place at EDOC). We were also glad to welcome the internationally renewed author Thomas Erl who gave the workshop’s keynote speech. Workshop proceedings were published by IEEE (DOI: 10.1109/EDOCW.2013.48). This second edition builds upon previous edition’s success and intends to build and consolidate a community interested in business process robustness at the different steps of the business process engineering lifecycle.
