Welcome to the CoSeLoG website.

The CoSeLoG project aims to create a cloud infrastructure for municipalities. Such a cloud would offer services for handling various types of permits, taxes, certificates, and licenses. Although municipalities are similar, their internal processes are typically different. Within the constraints of national laws and regulations, municipalities can differentiate because of differences in size, demographics, problems, and policies. Therefore, the cloud should provide configurable services such that products and processes can be customized while sharing a common infrastructure. The CoSeLoG project aims at the development and analysis of such services.
Based on the process models and event logs created/received from the municipalities in the analysis phase, the following research questions will be investigated:
- Is it possible to run a workflow management system in the cloud (as a shared service)? This will be investigated by implementing a prototype.
- Which (combination of) elegant technique(s) can be used or defined to model, merge and configure business process models? This will be researched based on the process models from the municipalities.
- In which way can event logs contribute to the discovery and configuration of a configurable process model? Furthermore it will be researched how existing process mining techniques can be applied in a shared environment.
Within the CoSeLoG project Eindhoven University of Technology collaborates with 2 IT companies and 10 Dutch municipalities.
The research is performed by the following two researchers:
- CoSeLoG Newsletter #5 is out (in Dutch).
- CoSeLoG Newsletter #4 is out (in Dutch).
- CoSeLoG Newsletter #3 is out (in Dutch).
- At September 26, 2011 a meeting took place to conclude the analysis phase. During this meeting the current results were discussed with the participating municipalities and IT Companies. An outlook into the next year(s) was also discussed.
- Mid September Dennis Schunselaar, the replacement of Jan Vogelaar, started on the project.
- At the end of August the last process mining reports have been send to the participating municipalities for review.
- Jan Vogelaar has left the CoSeLoG project.
- An intermediate presentation has been planned for the participating Dimpact municipalities.
- For all 50 processes the interviews have been taken and the process models have been created and verified by the municipalities. Furthermore, almost all 50 data sets are in for process mining analysis.
- CoSeLoG Newsletter #2 is out (in Dutch).
- An intermediate presentation was given for the participating Kempen municipalities.
- The municipality of Oirschot decided to join the CoSeLoG project, this brings the total number of participating municipalities to 10.
- Of the 45 processes (9 municipalities times 5 processes) we have already investigated 17 and made appointments for 7 others (state as of December 7).
- The CoSeLoG researchers presented the project on the LAC (national architecture) congress, photos can be found here.
- Unfortunately, Noordoostpolder decided not to join the project. Another municipality is contacted for participation.
- Jan Vogelaar officially joined the CoSeLoG project on June 16. He joined Joos Buijs whom started at May 1.
March 2010 The CoSeLoG project has been granted, see the following (Dutch) news messages:
