Call for Demos

The ICPM Demo Track is intended to present innovative Process Mining tools and applications, originating from research initiatives or from industry.

To be considered for the Demo Track, tools will be evaluated on the basis of relevance, novelty, and innovativeness to the Process Mining community. 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 (the testing should preserve reviewers’ anonymity). Also, it is desirable that the tool will be available for the whole academic community (in case of commercial product, maybe academic licenses can be envisioned).

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 latest ​IEEE Computational Intelligence Society conference proceedings guidelines​ (8.5” × 11” two-column format, ​howto​).

A demo paper should contain at least the following parts:

  1. Title, authors and affiliation;
  2. An abstract;
  3. An introduction section, which, among others, should highlight the significance of the tool to the Process Mining community;
  4. A section discussing the innovations of the tool and its main features;
  5. A section describing the maturity of the tool. For this section, it is wise to include 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 25 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.

Demo papers should be submitted through the EasyChair submission system using this link https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icpm2019​. All demo submissions will be reviewed by the demo reviewing committee. Accepted demo papers will be published in an open-access CEUR volume. At least one author of each accepted demo paper is expected to present the paper and tool at the conference and is required to sign a copyright release form.

For all the submissions, we invite the authors to be explicit about the process mining capabilities addressed in the demo papers by listing them as keywords. One to five keywords characterizing the paper should be listed at the end of the abstract. The proposed list of capabilities to use as keywords includes (and is not limited to) process discovery, conformance checking, process enhancement, performance mining, variants analysis, predictive monitoring, and log pre-processing.

Each tool/application will be presented plenary using one or two-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. Physical presence of at least one presenter per demo is mandatory.

Each demo presentation will be provided with a demo booth consisting of a table, power socket, and a computer screen. Upon request, the organizers will provide a Blu-tack (reusable adhesive) to put up a poster on the wall.

An award for the best demo paper will be presented at the ICPM 2019 closing ceremony. The best demo paper award will be selected based on the reviewers comments, innovation, technical contribution, maturity of the reported tool, and quality of the presentation on the demo day.
