Publication: Scientific journalJournal articlepeer-review


In order to capture flexible scenarios, a declarative approach to business process modeling describes constraints that limit a process' behavior instead of specifying all its allowed enactments. However, current graphical notations for declarative processes are tough to understand, thus hampering a widespread usage of the approach. To overcome this issue, we present a novel notational framework for representing declarative processes, devised in compliance with well-known notation design principles.
