The 2nd Int'l Workshop on Variability Support in Information Systems (VarIS 2014) will be held in conjunction with the 26th Int'l Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE 2014) and take place in Thessaliniki, Greece at 16 June 2014. Program committee co-chair are Prof. Manfred Reichert, Victoria Torres (Universidad Politécnica de Valenica, Spain) and Félix García (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Spain).

VarIS 2014 

About the workshop

Contemporary off-the-shelf enterprise information systems (IS) do not provide the flexibility required by agile enterprises whose businesses need to be rapidly adapted in response to market or environmental changes. Usually, standardized IS are deployed in different companies acting in different domains and distributed over various countries not taking their inherent differences into account. Despite these differences, certain IS functionality is shared among enterprises (e.g., the invoice checking and approval process or the customer entity). While major progress has been achieved by shifting from function- to process-centric system design, currently, the construction of IS dealing with all these particularities and commonalities is far from being realized. A feasible direction to improve this situa-tion is to address IS variability as a first class aspect during IS development.

Variability management is prevalent in a multitude of research fields including, for example, requirements engineering, software product lines, business and soft-ware process modeling, and product data management. However, a comprehensive approach dealing with variability in the context of IS engineering and IS management is still missing; e.g., it is not well understood how varying requirements contribute to variability of the different artifacts emerging in the IS lifecycle (e.g., architectural specifications, process models, test cases, handbooks).

The VarIS workshop will fill this gap by bringing together researchers and practitioners from different fields (e.g., requirements engineering, software pro-duct line engineering, business process management, software engineering, pro-duct data management) who need to deal with variability issues in IS not from an isolated point of view, but as an integrated part of a development project. The overall goal of the workshop is to look at variability issues in a wider perspective, trying to understand not just the techniques and languages that allow capturing and representing IS variability, but also to understand IS variability including, for example, its drivers and economic implications. VarIS will discuss the current state of ongoing research, industry needs, future trends, and practical experiences.

Further details and the call for papers can be found on the workshop's webseite.

Manfred Reichert is co-chair of the Int'l Workshop on Variability Support in Information Systems (VarIS). VarIS'13 will be held in conjunction with the 25th Int'l Conference on Advanced Information Systems Engineering (CAiSE'13) and will take place in Valencia in June 2013. Manfred shares this task with his colleagues Victoria Torres (Universidad Politécnica de Valenica, Spain) and Félix García (Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, Spain).

BPM'12 Tutorial on Large Process Models and Process Model Collections http://process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/111-bpm-12-tutorial-on-large-process-models-and-process-model-collections http://process-flexibility.com/index.php/item/111-bpm-12-tutorial-on-large-process-models-and-process-model-collections

In the context of the BPM 2012 conference conference, which took place from September 5-7 in Tallinn, Estonia, Manfred Reichert (DBIS), Barbara Weber (University of Innsbruck) and Victoria Torres Bosch (University of Valencia) organized a tutorial on large process models (i.e., large process model trees or complex inter-related process structures) and large process model collections. The tutorial discussed the challenges that arise both in respect to the handling of large process models and the management of large collections of process models (with related process variants). As a motivational backbone, large process models and process model collections from the automotive industry and the healthcare domain were presented. Overall the tutorial, which was attended by more than 40 participants from the international research community, was a great success! The tutorial also addressed several of the topics described in detail in our book, e.g., process model refactoring (Chapter 9), process variant support and process configuration (Chapter 5), and data-driven process structures (Chapter 13).
