The minitrack on Collaborative Engineering of Processes and Systems deals with the development and use of participative methods and tools for quantitative and qualitative analysis of current business processes, and for design and implementation of new ways of working. The minitrack usually does not focus on the production and assembly of goods, but more on administrative processes that occur in all public and private organizations. Part of the attention is aimed at the service industry, because high quality processing of information is usually the added value the industry provides for its customers. The administrative processes are their primary process. In that way, the topic of the minitrack is closely linked to business process redesign, but it has a broader focus. In this minitrack we look especially at recent developments in the field, focusing on concepts for collaboratively modeling the dynamic behavior of business processes and of those involved in supporting their design and change. This year, we selected a number of interesting papers for the minitrack, which give a good insight into the current state of the field.
