Process Programming and Workflow

Process programs coordinate the efforts of people, computers, tools. We are investigating language mechanisms to support process programming, and using process programming languages to write executable code for software processes. We are developing Little-JIL, a process programming language, and Juliette, an interpretation engine to guide execution of process programs written in Little-JIL.

In LASER, we are focused on process programming technology as a platform for the evaluation, comparison, analysis, evolution and improvement of a wide range of processes. We believe that programming will lead to better understanding and improvement of the processes, as well as providing more effective computerized support.
