About CeSCoP

Globalization and competitive pressure created the need for collaborations among business partners who join their forces and combine their services in order to provide added-value products. Despite the benefits of such cross-organizational collaborations, new challenges raise; e.g., mainly the ability to cope with security, adaptation, compliance and privacy. The CeSCoP workshop focuses on the research problems faced in intra- and cross-organizational processes and aims to support investigation and novel solutions with regard to the specific requirements arising in this context.

The workshop purpose is to offer a portal for researchers and practitioners to discuss and contribute research dedicated to the investigation to the main requirements of cross-organizational processes (e.g., modeling, flexibility, monitoring, etc.).

The workshop appreciates diversity in the chosen research methodology (reaching from e.g. empirical research to action research, and design science research), and welcomes technical, empirical, experiential, and exploratory contributions.


The CeSCoP’16 workshop focuses on research in intra- and cross-organizational business processes and workflows including but not limited to the following topics:
  • Governance, Risk and Compliance
  • Compliance Rule Specification
  • Compliance Verification
  • Security, Privacy and Trust

Short papers of 5 pages can be submitted for inclusion in the proceedings. Short papers can be idea papers, practical experience reports, and tool demos. Submissions will be reviewed by at least three PC members based on their originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity of exposition.

All submissions must be made in PDF format and comply with the IEEE Computer Society Conference Proceedings Format Guidelines.
