Our research addresses advanced issues related to databases and information systems. Focus is on the service-oriented design and implementation of robust, process-aware information systems. In particular, we target at next generation process management technology, which will allow for a high degree of process as well as service flexibility and which will enable full process lifecycle support.

This includes research topics related to process modeling, process configuration and implementation, process and service enactment, and process monitoring and diagnosis. In our research projects both national and international partners are involved. Furthermore, we have strong collaborations with industrial partners (e.g., from the automotive domain and from healthcare) within several research projects.
