Several classical Artificial Intelligence methodologies can be relied upon to properly manage Business Processes (BP), and to plan and implement their adaptations (in front, e.g., of exceptional situations).
Knowledge representation and modelling techniques are required to represent processes and exceptions. Moreover, since many systems share the idea of recalling and reusing concrete examples of change adopted in the past, Case-based Reasoning can exploited, to retrieve adaptation cases, and to support the user in the overall adaptation task. Additionally, when adaptations take place, quality evaluation is needed; indeed, compliance of the new version of the process with respect to specific semantic constraints can be verified. To
this end, formal (e.g. logic-based) verification approaches can be
adopted. Such methodologies have proved to be helpful in a
wide range of application domains, from industrial to medical ones.
The special session on AI techniques for BP Management aims at collecting methodological and application papers on the topic, addressing research on modelling and theory of business processes, support to process evolution and flexibility, process mining
and applicative studies. The final goal is the one of serving as a means for exchanging novel as well as more consolidated ideas and examples in the field,and to identify promising research lines and challenges for the future.
The accepted papers will be published in the regular KES conference proceedings
(Springer-Verlag LNCS/LNAI series).
