Business Process Modeling is a collaborative task of different groups of specialists, including business analysts, solution architects and system developers. They work on different levels of abstraction and collaborate to create a set of different but related artifacts, from business requirements and high-level process specifications to executable models. A critical activity in BPM is managing consistency among these artifacts. Successful consistency management requires understanding the key needs and collaboration patterns of the stakeholders and the complex relations among the artifacts. The workshop featured researchers, industry specialists and tool vendors to discuss open issues and challenges on the topic.
