Research Topics on Business Process Management : Workflow Patterns,
Healthcare and Ontologies

Abstract :

Recently, a variety of workflow patterns was suggested for capturing
different aspects in business processes including control and data
flow, resources, process change, and exception handling. All these
patterns are highly relevant for implementing business processes and
for designing process modeling languages. However, current patterns
provide only a partial answer to the question which business functions
a designer might want to reuse when modeling processes. In this talk I
will present results from the ProWAP project. ProWAP targets at an
approach to increase the reuse of recurrent business functions when
designing business processes. One of the basic pillars is provided by
a set of workflow activity patterns which are close to the abstraction
level or vocabulary used within an organization. This fosters pattern
reuse when modeling business processes and therefore contributes to
more standardized and better comparable business process models. In
addition, I will introduce core results of a research being developed
in the healthcare area whose goal is to get a deeper understanding of
clinical work practices and to better understand how IT process
support should look like for them. Altogether, adequate handling of
failure and exceptions in healthcare information systems, while still
enables a certain level of control and assistance to clinical staff.
Finally, I will conclude introducing a recent research I am developing
in the area of process design and ontology building.

Short Biography :

Lucinéia Heloisa Thom was recently approved as full professor at the
Institute of Informatics of the Federal University of Rio Grande do
Sul. From 2010 to 2011, Lucinéia was visiting scientist at the Sigma
Team of University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble. Since 2010 she is also
Post-doc researcher at the Institute of Informatics of Federal
University of Rio Grande do Sul. From 2007-2009 she was post-doc
researcher at the Institute of Database and Information Systems of Ulm
University working with Prof. Manfred Reichert. She received a
Bachelor degree in Computer Science from the University of Santa Cruz
do Sul, Brazil and a Master degree in Computer Science from the
Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil in 1999 and
2002, respectively. In 2006 she received her PhD in Computer Science
from UFRGS. From 2004 to 2005 she developed part of her thesis
research abroad in Institute for Parallel and Distributed Systems at
University of Stuttgart. Her research interests are in the area of
process management, workflow patterns, process mining, healthcare
information systems and ontology. In these areas she has many
published papers.
