Exploiting Process Knowledge for Event Processing in Distributed Business Applications

  • Holger Ziekow
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 5872)


In this paper, we address event processing for applications in distributed business processes. For this application context we present an approach for improving in-network processing of events. We highlight the role of a priori process knowledge for query optimization and describe distributed event processing based on decision points in the process.
