Abstract. This paper presents a set of process changes patterns to foster the comparison of existing process-aware information systems with respect to process change definition. More precisely, change patterns allow for high-level process adaptations at both the process type and the processinstance level. We sketch 17 characteristic patterns we identified as being relevant for control flow changes and which reduce the complexity of process change (like design patterns in software engineering reduce system complexity) and raise the level for expressing changes by providing abstractions which are above the level of single node and edge operations.
