First International Symposium on Data-driven Process Discovery and Analysis


IFIP Working Groups 2.6 and 2.12


June 29th - July 1st, 2011

    Campione d’Italia, Italy


* About SIMPDA *

With the increasing automation of business processes growing amounts of

data become available. This opens new research opportunities for business 

process data analysis, mining and modeling. The aim of the IFIP 2.6 - 2.12

International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and Analysis is to 

offer a forum where researchers from different communities and the industry

share their insight in this hot new field.

The Symposium will feature a number of advanced keynotes illustrating new 

approaches, shorter presentations on recent research, a  competitive PhD

and selected research and industrial demonstrations. All this in the nice 

setting of Campione d’Italia, the Italian enclave surrounded by Swiss

on the shores of Lake Lugano.


* Call for Papers *

The IFIP International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and

offers to researchers and practitioners working in business process data 

modeling, representation and privacy-aware analysis a unique opportunity to 

present new approaches and research results. 

The Symposium will bring together leading researchers, engineers and

from around the world. Full papers must not exceed 10 pages. Short papers

limited to at most 4 pages. All papers must be original contributions, not 

previously published or under review for publication elsewhere. All 

contributions must be written in English. 

Accepted papers will be published in a pre-proceedings volume with ISBN.

of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles to a 

post-symposium volume of LNBIP (Lecture Notes in Business Information 

Processing, http://www.springer.com/series/7911), scheduled for late 2011 

(extended papers length is between 7000 and 9000 words). Around 15-20 papers

will be selected for the publication after a second round of review.
