The research group distinguishes itself in the Information Systems discipline by its fundamental focus on

  • modelling,
  • understanding,
  • analyzing, and
  • improving

processes. Essentially, every time two or more activities are performed to reach a certain goal, fundamental principles of processes apply.

The research in the our group continues to expand outward from a “classical” situation of data with clear case notions in the context of explicitly structured processes to a broad, multi-faceted field, where processes are less structured or consist of many interacting artifacts and where case notions in data become more fluid or are complex, multi-dimensional networks.

The PA group is headed by B.F. van Dongen.
