Agent-oriented compositional approaches to services-based cross-organizational workflow

2004 Decision Support Systems  
This paper details design aspects of an architecture that would support this evolvable service-based workflow composition.  ...  One such approach is workflow composition of services that span multiple, distributed web-accessible locations.  ...  Agents execute a new series of actions, an exception-handling workflow, to make corrections for exceptions. The exception-handling workflow defines a workflow in a similar fashion to the WMA tuple.  ...
