  • Workflow verification and validation;
  • Workflow and human interaction;
  • Workflow integration with SOA and SOC;
  • Workflow integration in GRID environments;
  • GRID workflows;
  • Workflow-based business applications;
  • Workflow-based scientific applications;
  • Petri nets and workflow management;
  • Verification, validation and performance analysis of workflow management systems;
  • Security in workflow management systems;
  • Solutions for eSociety (eHealth, eGovernment, eLearning, etc.)


The workshop, a one-day event, is a satellite event of the “10th International Symposium on Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing SYNASC 2008” that is to be held in Timisoara, Romania, last week of September 2008.
