More about Arthur.

Research area Conceptual, formal, and technological foundations of Business Process Automation. Much of this work centers around the YAWL (Yet Another Workflow Language) open source workflow management system, which is based on the well-known Workflow Patterns Initiative. This system is used in industry and provides a testbed for the application of new research ideas.

Supervision Arthur is interested in students with a background in computer science for the area of business process automation. Students should have an affinity with and an understanding of:

  • mathematical concepts (e.g. logic, graph theory);
  • programming theory and practice.

Research topics Over time, topics will vary and can be discussed. At the moment there is an interest in areas such as:

  • process mining
  • process automation
  • large process model collections
