Visit at QUT – July and August 2009

Recently I returned from a two months long visit at the BPM group at QUT in Brisbane, Australia.

During the time at QUT:

  • I worked on the YAWL-demo for the ÖST-project, implementing the emergency telephone application and installation process. I implemented a couple of customs forms for the demo and used code written by David Truffet in doing this, as well as David’s wonderful help. Thank you David!
  • I started working in the area of large process models, where I am cooperating with Marcello La Rosa and Arthur ter Hofstede.
  • I produced lecture slides for the YAWL book chapter on open source workflow systems (Chapter 16). Paul and Birger, who are co-authors of the chapter, helped me with the slides.
In Brisbane, I was happy to learn that our paper “Patterns-based Evaluation of Open Source BPM Systems: The Cases of jBPM, OpenWFE, and Enhydra Shark (2008) co-authored by Nick Russell (QUT and TUE), Arthur ter Hofstede, Birger Andersson (DSV, SU/KTH) and Wil van der Aalst (TUE and QUT) is among the most downloaded papers from QUT’s ePrints database.

Many thanks to the BPM group and QUT for their hospitality.
