BuzzOs- What’s the buzz with objects?  FullyInteractive 

Organized by Andrey Rivkin (DTU, Denmark), Jan Martijn van der Werf, (Utrecht University, The Netherlands)

A new object-centric paradigm has been one of the hottest topics in the Business Process Management and Process Mining communities since a couple of years. But do we all have a common understanding of what object centricity is about? How do we in general interpret the objects in the context of Process Mining? BuzzOs is a fully interactive workshop that aims at answering these questions and challenges whoever is interested in the topic to join forces in setting up a research agenda in the area of object-centric process mining for the years to come.

COMINDS – COllaboration MINing for Distributed Systems

Organized by Lorenzo Rossi (University of Camerino, Italy), Mahsa Pourbafrani (RWTH Aachen University, Germany), Laura González (Universidad de la República, Uruguay)

The Third Workshop on Collaboration Mining for Distributed Systems (CoMinDS 2024) aims to promote the development of innovative techniques for analyzing collaboration processes in distributed scenarios. In real-world situations, where processes are often interconnected and sharing event data might be impractical due to reasons like privacy constraints, the workshop underscores the necessity for creative federated techniques. In real-world situations e.g., supply chains involving manufacturers, producers, and retailers; healthcare scenarios involving patients, hospitals, and doctors; or even smart systems like multi-robot and IoT systems, processes are interconnected, and sharing event data might be impractical due to reasons like privacy constraints. The workshop underscores the necessity for creative techniques facilitating comprehensive process analysis among different parties.

EdbA – Event Data & Behavioral Analytics (EdbA)

Organized by Benoît Depaire (Hasselt University, The Netherlands), Dirk Fahland (TU/Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Francesco Leotta (Sapienza Università di Roma, Italy), Arik Senderovich (York University, Canada)

The EdbA workshop aims to provide a forum for discussing and developing analytics for various forms of event data. In its most basic form, such data describes discrete events, which occur instantly – and thus have no duration, are ordered in time and are described by a set of attributes. The analytical potential of event data lies in the fact that it captures the dynamic behavior of people, objects and/or systems at a fine-grained level. The workshop welcomes both original research papers as well as high-quality case studies on event data and behavioral analytics.

PDCW – Process Discovery Contest Workshop  FullyInteractive 

Organized by Eric Verbeek (TU/Eindhoven, The Netherlands)

This year, there will be a workshop around the Process Discovery Contest: The Process Discovery Contest Workshop (PDCW) 2024. In this workshop, every contestant gets to introduce the discovery approach they are using, and to show and discuss discovery results on a number of selected event logs from the contest (preferably, using a live demo). This provides an overview of the current state in the field of (automated) process discovery and where there is room for improvement. It also shows stronger and weaker points of the different approaches. Prior to these presentations, an overview of how the current Process Discovery Contest has been set up will be presented, as well as the ground truth models for the selected event logs. More details will follow later.

PQMI – Process Querying, Manipulation, and Intelligence

Organized by Artem Polyvyanyy (The University of Melbourne, Australia), Claudio Di Ciccio (Utrecht University, The Netherlands), Antonella Guzzo (University of Calabria, Italy), Arthur H. M. ter Hofstede (Queensland University of Technology, Australia)

The Ninth International Workshop on Process Querying, Manipulation, and Intelligence (PQMI 2024) endeavors to offer a platform facilitating scholarly discussion and knowledge dissemination within the research and professional community. Process querying combines concepts from Big data and process modeling and analysis with business process intelligence and process analytics to study techniques for retrieving and manipulating models of real-world and envisioned processes to organize and extract process-related information for subsequent systematic use. Process manipulation is concerned with ways to update process representations and knowledge to ensure improvements within real-world business operations. Finally, process intelligence looks for the symbioses effects between artificial intelligence and process mining, encompassing such domains as knowledge representation, automated planning, reasoning, natural language processing, explainable AI, and multi-agent systems. The methods, techniques, and tools intrinsic to these interrelated domains find wide-ranging applications in business process management and process mining, including business process compliance, identification of process vulnerabilities, management of process variances, in-depth analysis of process performance, predictive process monitoring, translation of process models, comparative analysis of process models, detection of anomalous process behaviors, seamless migration of process instances, and facilitation of process standardization and reusability.
