YAWL is a Business Process Management System which was built based on a concise and powerful modeling language, which is rooted in research on workflow patterns for expressing control flow, data flow, resource assignment and exception handling. While YAWL was highly influential in research early on with the YAWL article being cited ultimately more than 1,000 times, there is a growing community of researchers and practitioners who use the YAWL system in teaching and projects. It is the aim of this YAWL Symposium, organised by the YAWL User Group, to provide a forum to discuss the usage of the YAWL system in any of its application domains. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Best practices and proven cases of effectively teaching YAWL
  • Experience of using YAWL in practical settings
  • SWOT analysis for using YAWL in teaching
  • Grading student projects conducted with YAWL
  • The students’ perspective on learning based on YAWL
  • Relationships between other petrinet-based modeling and analysis tools and YAWL

We invite the submission of short papers of up to 6 pages to the meeting. All papers must be formatted in English following the «Springer LNBIP instructions» for authors. Electronic submission of manuscripts (in PDF) is required «using EasyChair». Submitted papers will be evaluated by an international program committee on the basis of their potential to raise discussion and of their value in showcasing teaching best practices.

Papers selected for this workshop will be published online as CEUR Workshop Proceedings. At least one author is required to attend the workshop and present the paper. Presentations and demos will be listed with title and abstract in the workshop brochure. Presentations of the speakers selected for the workshop will be available on the workshop webpage after the workshop.
