  • Analysis, Design, and Implementation of Processes for a Peer-to-Peer Service for Electric Vehicle Charging: Martin Matzner, Florian Plenter, Jan Betzing, Friedrich Chasin, Moritz von Hoffen, Matthias Löchte, Sarah Pritzl, Joerg Becker

Abstract: Developing a peer-to-peer service for electric vehicle charging may be a solution to address the problem of an insufficient number of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. Combining a business model from the sharing economy with the young but quickly growing domain of electric vehicle charging, among the many challenges we faced, were the lack of standardized processes for electric vehicle charging. To address this issue, we set out to elicit processes from organizations in the domain to identify best-practices among the as-is processes and derive to-be processes for the development of our service. Besides researchers and practitioners active in the area of the Sharing Economy or electric vehicle charging, this talk also addresses all those who are about to develop new and innovative services.

  • Forms are declarative processes!: Morten Marquard, Tijs Slaats, Søren Debois, Thomas Hildebrandt

Abstract: Modern form-based end-user interfaces are highly variable and need to adapt to the choices made by the user. To describe such adaptations programmatically is time and resource intensive and therefore more generic approaches are preferable. Form-based UIs are often very flexible: one usually has a large degree of freedom in the order in which fields are filled out and is able of changing previous values on the fly without needing to redo intermediate steps. Such flexible behaviour can be efficiently captured using a declarative process model, where the declarative rules define for each form element whether they are visible, editable and/or mandatory. In addition complex data-based constraints can be supported, so that the behaviour of a field depends on the values entered into the form. In this session we will show: How to express complex, variable forms as declarative processes, How to express such form processes in the DCR formalism, How to model and execute such forms on the dcrgraphs.net process portal, How we applied this approach to the grant application system of a Danish foundation.
