Call for Tool-Demonstration Papers

The ICPM 2020 Demonstration Track is intended to showcase innovative Process Mining (PM) tools and applications that may originate either from research initiatives or from industry. The Demonstration Track will provide an opportunity to present and discuss emerging technologies with researchers and practitioners in the PM field.

To be included in the demonstration tracks, tools will be evaluated on the basis of relevance to the PM community as well as on novelty and innovativeness. Previously demonstrated
tools are also welcome if there is clear evidence of the value added to the previous version of the tool, such as new tool features and/or its adaptation and use for new practical
applications. The tools will also be evaluated on their maturity, complexity and robustness, such as the list of features, supported use cases, number and types of users. In order for
reviewers to assess the maturity and robustness, the tools need to be available for testing.
If the tool requires a license, this needs to be provided to the reviewers, at least limited to the reviewing period. The procedure to obtain the license must not disclose the identity of
the reviewers.

The tool submission needs to be accompanied by a demo paper discussing the relevance, novelty, innovativeness and maturity of the tool.
Demo papers must be no longer than 4 pages in PDF format and must adhere to the guidelines of IEEE Computational Intelligence Society conference proceedings, using the 8.5″ × 11″ two-column format. Templates are available for Latex and Word here.

The paper, which should contain at least the following parts:

  1. Title, authors and affiliations
  2. An abstract
  3. An introduction section, which, among others, should highlight the significance of the tool to the PM field;
  4. A section discussing the innovations of the tool to the PM community and its main features;
  5. A section describing the maturity of the tool. For this section, one could provide a brief description of case studies performed using the tool, provide scalability data or pointers indicating where readers can find more information about these case studies;
  6. A link to a ​video that screencasts and demonstrates the tool, preferably including voice, which must not be longer than 4 minutes
  7. A link to a Web page where to ​download or use the tool​. If the tool requires a license, a paper’s appendix should describe how to obtain a (temporary) license. The procedure to obtain the license must not disclose the identity of the reviewers. The appendix will not be included in the final version for the proceedings, if the demo is accepted.
  8. A link to a separate ​tutorial document that focuses on one specific use case of the tool which is presented in a step-by-step approach (e.g., mine a Petri net from an event log, simulate a model, verify a set of business constraints, etc.). This separate document must be no longer than 15 pages in PDF format.

Submission and Review Process

Demo papers should be submitted through the ICPM 2020 submission system. Details will be made available not later than the end of 2019.

All demo submissions will be reviewed by the demo reviewing committee. The reviewing committee will also vote on the best demo to be granted the ICPM 2020 Best Demo Award.

Accepted demo papers will be published as CEUR proceedings.

Reviewing Committee

It will be formed by the end of 2019.


Each tool/application will be presented plenary using one minute teasers informing the audience about the available demos. The actual demonstrations will then be held in a
dedicated slot with all tools/applications being shown in parallel. The dedicated slot will be divided into blocks of 15 minutes. At the end of each block, the audience is expected to
move from one demo to another and the presenters will start over a new demonstration session of their respective tools. Registration to the conference physical presence of at least one presenter per demo is mandatory. Each demo will be provided with a station in the demo venue.
