Participants : François Charoy, Karim Benouaret, Raman Valliyur-Ramalingam, Alexandre Roux d Anzi.
As a follow-up of our work on coordination of large scale processes that we have investigated in the domain of crisis management  ,  , we have studied a new application domain for BPM, crowdsourcing. In order to make cities smarter, it would be interesting to design a platform where citizens are given an opportunity to be effectively connected to the governing bodies in their location and to contribute to the general well being. We have developed CrowdSC, a crowdsourcing framework designed for smarter cities. We have shown that it is possible to combine data collection, data selection and data assessment crowdsourcing activities in a crowdsourcing process to achieve sophisticated goals in a predefined context. Depending on the executing strategy of this process, different kinds of outcomes can be produced. We have conducted an experimental study that evaluates these process outcomes depending on different execution strategies  ,  .
