English abstract:
In the context of inter-organizational workflows, interactions between partners
should be constructive, complementary, and guide the work toward the
objective of organizations involved in the workflow. Within our approach,
inter-organizational workflow cooperation, which consists of workflow advertisement,
workflow interconnection and workflow cooperation, this paper
focuses on these cooperation policies one has to define in order to enforce
and control interactions between partnersī workflows. The cooperation
policies integrate the partnersī roles as well as their coordination, the
dataflows allowed to pass from one partnerīs workflow to another, and their
intervisibility levels. The level of the visibility is used to preserve the partner
privacy and know-how and is reduced as tiny as cooperation needs.
