IntroductionOn September 19 and 20, 2005 the School for Information and Knowledge Systems (SIKS) will organize an Advanced Course "Business Process Integration" .

However, their number of passes will be restricted and depends on the number of students taking the course. The course is given by experienced lecturers from the Netherlands and abroad actively involved in the research areas related to the topics of the course. The course is connected to the EDOC'05 conference

About the courseBusiness processes often span different organizational functions and increasingly cross organizational boundaries. The way business processes integrate different functions, or web services, and the way business processes interface with each other is receiving more and more interest from researchers and practitioners. Business Process Integration includes topics like data integration, web transactions, cross-organizational workflow, supply chain integration, business process management and contract-based coordination. In this course, the focus will be on the process and contract aspects.
The 2-day course is an advanced course in the area of e-business systems, one of SIKS' eight research foci
