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


Sponsored by the IFIP, Università degli Studi di Milano, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Curtin University of Technology.

Partners: SpagoWorld, IBM, EBTIC, PlanetData, Tekne Project 


With the increasing automation of business processes growing amounts of process 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 First 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 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.
