Paper titled A Machine Learning Based Approach to Application Landscape Documentation accepted at PoEM 2018

In the era of digitalization, IT landscapes keep growing along with complexity and dependencies. This amplifies the need to determine the current elements of an IT landscape for the management and planning of IT landscapes as well as for failure analysis. The field of enterprise architecture documentation seeked for more than a decade for solutions to minimize the manual effort to build enterprise architecture models or automation. We summarize the approaches presented in the last decade in a literature survey. Moreover, we present a novel, machine-learning based approach to detect and to identify applications in an IT landscape.

Paper titled A Holistic Model-based Adaptive Case Management Approach for Healthcare accepted at AdaptiveCM 2018

In recent years, personalized connected care has become increasingly important due to the generally aging population and the rising cost pressures in the healthcare sector. Nevertheless, to the best of our knowledge, there are no off-the-shelf solutions available to provide open and adaptable information and communication technology (ICT) for connected care; the reasons for this may differ between use cases. Based on our case studies at hospitals in different European countries, we identified three main challenges of such for ICT solution: 1) the high diversity between hospital sites and treatments, 2) the embedding of information from existing information systems, and 3) the coordination and communication of the many different stakeholders. Our approach is to use a full stack modelbased solution that supports the integration, communication, and coordination of the pending work. Currently, our solution is being used for clinical trials.

Paper titled An-Overview-of-Tools-for-an-Integrated-and-Adaptive-Healthcare-Approach accepted at AdaptiveCM 2018

Integrated care approaches are becoming increasingly relevant with the current aging population. In the context of an integrated healthcare project, we developed a smart adaptive case management system for professionals that is currently being used for clinical trials. In this paper, we present the modeling requirements for integrated healthcare applications and use them to categorize and compare existing implementation approaches used in practice. [link]


Two papers from sebis at International Conference on Software Architecture 2018

Two paper from the chair have been accepted at this year's International Conference of Software Architecture in Seattle, USA:


ICEIS 2018 Best paper award for paper An Agile Framework for Modeling Smart City Business Ecosystems

The paper An Agile Framework for Modeling Smart City Business Ecosystems  was presented at the International Conference on Enterprise Information Systems 2018 (ICEIS 2018), Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. The authors (Anne Faber, Adrian Hernandez-Mendez, Sven-Volker Rehm and Florian Matthes) describe a collaborative modeling process, which empowers end-users to manage the business ecosystem models and underlying data. The paper has won the ICEIS 2018 Best Paper Award.
