CI4PM, co-located with WCCI 2022

conference room publication outlet

Announced by Massimiliano De Leoni

We are organizing a Workshop on Computational Intelligence for Process Mining (CI4PM), held in conjunction with the 2022 IEEE World Congress on Computational Intelligence (WCCI 2022). WCCI 2022 is the world’s largest technical event on computational intelligence this year and features the three flagship conferences of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) under one roof. It will be held in Padua from 18 to 23 July 2022.

The question that naturally pops up: why yet another workshop about process mining?

The distinctive feature of this workshop is the conceptual location: together with the “cornerstone” event on computational intelligence. This will provide visibility within the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society to research ideas that combine computational intelligence approaches to address process-mining problems.

In fact, process mining and computation have shown to be successful per se, but their combination can uncover invaluable opportunities. Techniques from the computational-intelligence domain can be extended and specialized to answer typical business and research questions of the Process Mining domain.

This workshop aims to untap the potential of computational intelligence to solve open problems in process mining, on the one hand, and to showcase how much process mining can be a challenging domain for computational intelligence techniques, on the other hand. Topics of interest for the workshop’s submissions include but are not limited to:

  • Use of neural networks and machine learning in process mining
  • Business process monitoring and prediction
  • Process-aware recommender systems
  • Storage and extraction of large process logs
  • Online process mining over event streams
  • Computational intelligence methods in process mining
  • Parallelization and distribution of process mining algorithms
  • Evolutionary computation, and genetic algorithms in process mining
  • Heuristic-based approaches for process mining
  • Event, trace, log and model abstraction
  • Case studies and empirical evaluations

The CI4PM workshop will accept two formats of submission:

Full-length papers:
this format is ideal for original research papers, survey papers, and case study papers. Full-length papers are limited to a maximum of 12 pages, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. At the event, full-length papers will be presented in a plenary session with talks of approximately 15 minutes, followed by a Q&A section.
Extended Abstracts:
this shorter format is ideal for position papers, idea papers, and work-in-progress reports. Extended abstracts will be selected with particular attention to their potential to stimulate fruitful scientific dialogue and/or debate. Extended abstracts are limited to a maximum of 2 pages, including figures, tables, references, and appendices. At the event, extended abstracts will be presented through a poster session; authors will be required to prepare and print a poster for presentation.

Both full-length papers and extended abstracts will be submitted for digital publication in an open-access CEUR volume.

Authors of all full-length papers accepted in the seminar will receive an invitation to submit an extended version of their manuscript to a special issue for the Elvesier's journal Engineering Applications of Artificial Intelligence (impact factor: 6.212).
