A model and system that enable interaction between workflows executed in the same or in different organizations are presented. The traditional workflow models are extended by allowing workflows to publish and subscribe to events and by enabling the definition of points in the process execution where events should be sent or received. Event notifications are managed by a suitable event service that filters, correlates and dispatches them to the appropriate target workflow instances. The model can be used to define a variety of behaviors, by exploiting workflow fragments.
