Call for Workshop Proposals

ICPM 2023 is seeking proposals for one-day or half-day workshops to be held 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.

We encourage workshop proposals that expand or reinforce the scope of topics and paradigms represented at the main conference, covering a broad area and avoiding excessively narrow topics.
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 after the workshops, while preliminary proceedings will be distributed during the workshop.
The decision on the acceptance of the workshop will be based on various 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. The length and format of the papers, the submission system (Easychair), and all the dates, will be coordinated among all the workshops. Due to editorial requirements, workshops are expected to have a 45% acceptance rate at most. Finally, workshops that only manage to get less than 3 papers accepted may be asked to merge with another workshop.

  1. Title: The title of the workshop and an acronym.
  2. Theme: An outline of the workshop theme, goals, and the intended audience.
  3. Duration: Full day or a half day event.
  4. Activities: Intended activities and proposed planning.
  5. Submissions: The targeted number of submissions. For existing workshops include the number of past submissions and accepted papers.
  6. Organizers: A brief biography of each workshop organizer.
  7. Promotion: The complete plan of activities envisioned to stimulate submissions to the workshop. The plan must include precise details, e.g., the specific mailing lists.
  8. Potential Audience: A brief statement that states how the workshops would be able to attract a sufficiently large audience, including a list of potential researchers who have worked on (some of) the topics of the workshop.
  9. Call for Papers: The tentative Call for Papers, including a tentative PC list. Workshop proposals must be submitted as a PDF document by email to the workshop chairs, Johannes de Smedt and Pnina Soffer, at icpmworkshops2023@gmail.com. Please also direct any inquiries and requests for additional information about the organization of workshops to this address.
