The workshop would continue the discussions on applicability of OO to business processes modeling which were started during 'Workshop on Modeling Software Processes and Artifacts' (ECOOP'97), and 'Workshop on Business Modeling for OO Systems' (OOPSLA'97). Though the traditional object-oriented approach doesn't fit the task of business processes representation very well, object-orientation looks promising for the field. This time, we want to concentrate the discussion on what kind of object-orientation would be adequate for business processes. The main topics include (but are not limited to) the following: (a) importance for a business model to be independent from the system, and especially from the way the latter is being implemented; (b) features of business processes that require special consideration in an object-oriented model (e.g.: history, planning, nondeterminism, etc.); (c) set of notions needed for representing business processes in an object-oriented manner. We would like to see our workshop as a meeting of technicians with professionals in business processes analysis and development who could verify the correctness of formal approaches to business processes representation.
