>> About SIMPDA

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
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 keynotes illustrating new approaches,


shorter presentations on recent research, a  competitive PhD seminar, and
selected 

research and industrial demonstrations. All this in the charming setting of
Campione 

d’Italia, the Italian enclave surrounded by Swiss territory, on the shores
of Lake 

Lugano.

 

SIMPDA 2012 is jointly conducted with IEEE DEST-CEE 2012 (IEEE International
Conference 

on Digital Ecosystem Technologies and Complex Environment Engineering 

http://sesar.dti.unimi.it/DEST2012/). 

This acknowledges the key role of business process data modeling,
representation and 

privacy-aware analysis for Digital Ecosystems.

 

>> Important Dates       

Submission of Full Papers:         15 April 2012 

Submission of PhD Research Plans:  15 April 2012 

Notification of Acceptance:        15 May 2012 

Submission of Camera Ready Papers: 21 May 2012

 

>> Call for Papers

SIMPDA 2012 offers a unique opportunity to present new approaches and
research results 

to researchers and practitioners working in business process data modeling,
representation 

and privacy-aware analysis. Full papers must not exceed 15 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-proceedings volume with an ISBN.
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, http://www.springer.com/series/7911),
scheduled 

for late 2012.

 

>> Keynote Speakers

Marlon Dumas   - University of Tartu

Ronal Maier   - University of Innsbruck

Jan Mendling   - Vienna University of Economics

Manfred Hauswirth   - National University of Ireland

 

>> Call for PhD Research Plans

The SIMPDA 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 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 4 page long and should be organized
following 

the following structure: 

 

- Abstract: summarizes, in 5 line, the research aims and significance.

- Research Question: defines what will be accomplished by eliciting the
relevant 

the research questions

- Background: defines the background knowledge providing the 5 most relevant

references (papers or books).

- Significance: explains the relevance of the general topic and of the
specific contribution.

- Research design and methods: describes and motivates the method adopted
focusing on: 

assumptions, solutions, data sources, validation of results, limitations of
the approach.

- Research stage: describes what the student has done so far.

 

A Doctoral Award will be given by the SIMPDA PhD Award Committee to the best
research 

plan submitted.

 

>> Call for Demonstrations and Posters

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 2 pages. 

Posters allow the presentation of late-breaking results in an informal,
interactive manner. 

Poster proposals should consist of a title, an extended abstract, contact
information for the authors, 

and should not exceed 2 pages. Accepted demonstrations and posters will be
presented at the symposium. Abstracts will appear in the proceedings.
