Project Description

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.

Current Phase

Based on the process models and event logs created/received from the municipalities in the analysis phase, the following research questions will be investigated:

  1. Is it possible to run a workflow management system in the cloud (as a shared service)? This will be investigated by implementing a prototype.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
