ICPM 2020 is seeking proposals for one-day or half-day workshops to be held on 5 October, the day prior to the main conference. Workshops facilitate the exchange of ideas and experiences among active researchers and vendors, and stimulate discussions on new and emerging perspectives in Process Mining. Workshop proposals that expand the scope of topics and paradigms represented at the main conference and, in particular, that cover broad topic are encouraged.
All workshop papers will be published by Springer as a post-workshop proceedings volume in the series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). These proceedings will be made available to all registered participants approximately four months after the workshops, while preliminary proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.
The decision on the acceptance of the workshop will be based on different criteria, and taken by the workshop chairs in consultation with the general chairs and the steering committee of ICPM. The workshop proposers should have a strong affinity with the proposed workshop topic and be well connected with experts on that topic. The workshop itself should provide a forum for important, innovative and timely topics of process mining, and be broad enough to attract a large potential audience. Furthermore, we encourage the workshop proposers to integrate mechanisms in their workshop to stimulate discussion and interaction beyond what is possible in a plenary conference session. Beyond these aspects, the workshop chairs will ensure that the accepted workshops as a whole cover a broad spectrum of the Process Mining research discipline. To this end, there will be a negotiation phase in which we seek to consolidate and mark off promising workshop proposals that show overlap.
Workshop proposals should include the following elements:
- The title of the workshop and an acronym;
- An outline of the workshop theme, goals, planned activities, and the intended audience (including a detailed list of potential researchers who could submit, with relevant publications);
- An indication of whether the workshop is planned as a full day or a half day event;
- The targeted number of submissions;
- A brief biography of each workshop organizer;
- The activities envisioned to stimulate submissions to the workshop;
- A brief statement that states how the workshops would be able to attract a sufficiently large audience, possibly stating a list of researchers who have worked on (some of) the topics of the workshop being proposed
- The tentative PC and call for papers.
Workshop proposals must be submitted as a PDF document to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 December 2019. Any inquiries and requests for additional information about the organization of workshops should be sent to this e-mail address as well.
Potential workshop proponents can request initial feedback on the topics that they aim to cover in the workshop. This can be done by sending an email to email@example.com not later than 1 November 2019. The email should contain at least points 1, 3 and 5 of the list above, along with one or more paragraphs that outline(s) the workshop theme (subset of point 2 above).
