The increasing automation of business processes and the growing amounts of process data become available opens new research opportunities for business process data analysis, mining, and modeling. The aim of the IFIP W.G. 2.6 International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and Analysis is to offer a forum where researchers from different communities and the industry can share their insight in this hot new field. The Symposium will feature a number of advanced research papers, shorter presentations on recent research, a competitive Ph.D. seminar and selected research and industrial demonstrations. This year the symposium will be held in Bled, in cunjunction with the ADBIS conference.
The IFIP W.G. 2.6 International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and Analysis (SIMPDA 2019) offers a unique opportunity to present new approaches and research results to researchers and practitioners working in business process data modelling, representation, and privacy-aware analysis. The symposium will bring together leading researchers, engineers, and scientists from around the world. Full papers must not exceed 12 pages. Short papers are limited to at most 6 pages. All papers must be original contributions, not previously published or under review for publication elsewhere. All contributions must be written in English and must follow the CCIS template and Springer paper preparation rules, see: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines.
The authors of the accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles to a post-symposium proceedings volume which will be published in the LNBIP series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing, scheduled for late 2020 (extended papers length will be between 7000 and 9000 words). Around 5-8 papers will be selected for publication after a second round of review.
Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:
In accordance to our historical tradition of proposing SIMPDA as a symposium, we propose an innovative format for this workshop: The number of sessions depend on the number of submissions but, considering the previous editions, we envisage to have four sessions, with 4-5 related papers assigned to each session. A special session (with a specific review process) will be dedicated to discuss research plan from Ph.D. students. Papers are pre-circulated to the authors that will be expected to read all papers in advance but to avoid exceptional overhead, two are assigned to be prepared with particular care, making ready comments and suggestions. The bulk of the time during each session will be dedicated to open conversations about all of the papers in a given session, along with any linkages to the papers and discussions within an earlier session.
The SIMPDA Ph.D. Seminar is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world. The goal of the Seminar is to help students with their thesis and research plans by providing feedback and general advice on how to use their research results. Students interested in participating in the Seminar should submit an extended abstract describing their research. Submissions can relate to any aspect of Process Data: technical advances, usage and impact studies, policy analyses, social and institutional implications, theoretical contributions, interaction and design advances, innovative applications, and social implications.
Research plans should be at most of 6 page long and should be organised following the following structure:
A doctoral award will be given by the SIMPDA Ph.D. Jury to the best research plan submitted.
Demonstrations showcase innovative technology and applications, allowing for sharing research work directly with colleagues in a high-visibility setting. Demonstration proposals should consist of a title, an extended abstract, and contact information for the authors, and should not exceed 12 pages.
Contributions to all calls should be submitted electronically to the Symposium management system connecting to http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=simpda2019. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to participate in the conference and present his/her work.
The papers submitted must be sent in PDF, following CCIS template and Springer paper preparation rules, see: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines
Registrations are managed by the ADBIS system
