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


With the increasing automation of business processes growing amounts of
process become available. This opens no opportunities for business process
data analysis, mining and modeling thriving research in this domain. The aim
of the IFIP 2.6 - 2.12 First International Symposium on Data-Driven Process
Discovery and Analysis is to offer a forum where researchers from different
communities can share their insights in this new emerging field.

The Symposium will feature a number of advanced keynotes illustrating new
approaches, shorter presentations on recent research, a  competitive PhD
seminar and selected research and industrial demonstrations. All this in the
nice setting of Campione d’Italia, the Italian enclave surrounded by Swiss
territory, on the shores of Lake Lugano.


Call for Papers

The IFIP International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and
Analysis  offers to researchers and practitioners working in business
process data modeling, representation and analysis a unique opportunity to
present new approaches and research results. 

The Symposium will bring together leading researchers, engineers and
scientists in the domain of interest from around the world. Full papers must
not exceed 10 pages. Short papers are 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-proceeding volume with ISBN.
Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles to a
post-symposium volume IFIP Advances in Information and Communication
Technology Series (http://www.springer.com/series/6102), scheduled for late
2011 (extended papers length is between 7000 and 9000 words). Around 10-15
papers will be selected for the publication after a second round of review. 

Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:



                Business Process modeling languages, notations and methods

                Data-aware and data-centric approaches 

                Variability and configuration of process models

                Process simulation and static analysis

                Process Data Mining

                Process metadata and semantic reasoning

                Process patterns and standards

                Foundations of business process models

                Security and Privacy aspects 

                Resource management in business process execution

                Process tracing and monitoring

                Process change management

                Business process lifecycle

                Case Studies and Experience Reports 


Call for PhD Research Plans

The PhD 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

Students interested in participating in the Seminar should submit an
extended abstract describing their research. Submissions are sought relating
to any aspect of Process Data: technical advances, usage and impact studies,
policy analyses, social and institutional implications, theoretical
contributions, interaction and design advances, and innovative applications,
social implications.


SIMPDA PhD award

A doctoral award will be recognized by the SIMPDA PhD Jury for the best
research plan submitted.


Tutored research activities 

Interested PhD students can apply to carry out pre-symposium tutored
research activities. Such activities provide a unique way to identify
research questions and will culminate with presentations to be given at the

In order to apply, please contact paolo.ceravolo@unimi.it


Call for Demonstrations and Posters

Demonstrations showcase innovative technology and applications, allowing you
to share your work directly with your colleagues in a high-visibility
setting. Demonstration proposals should consist of a title, extended
abstract, and contact information for the authors and should not exceed 2

Posters permit presentation of late-breaking results in an informal,
interactive manner. Poster proposals should consist of a title, extended
abstract, and contact information for the authors, and should not exceed 2

Accepted demonstrations or posters will be displayed at the conference.
Abstracts will appear in the proceedings.
