Call For Papers

11th International Workshop on Business Process Intelligence (BPI 15)

to be held in conjunction with BPM 2015
Innsbruck, Austria
August 31, 2015


Business Process Intelligence is an area that spans process discovery, conformance checking, process mining, predictive analytics and many other techniques that are all gaining interest and importance in industry and research. BPI refers to the application of various measurement and analysis techniques in the area of business process management. In practice, BPI is embodied in tools for managing process execution quality by offering several features such as analysis, prediction, monitoring, control, and optimization.

The goal of this workshop is to provide a better understanding and a more appropriate support of company processes at design time and the way they are handled at runtime, focusing on processes in isolation as well as the interplay between many parallel processes both within and between companies.

We aim to bring together practitioners and researchers from different communities such as business process management, information systems research, business administration, software engineering, artificial intelligence, process mining, and data mining who share an interest in the analysis of business processes and process-aware information systems. The workshop aims at discussing the current state of ongoing research and sharing practical experiences.

Analysis Techniques at design time and/or runtime:
- Mining of business processes from event logs
- Mining of non process aware systems / event streams
- Multi perspective process mining
- Statistical analysis in the business process management lifecycle
- Predictive analytics
- Recommender systems
- Conformance / compliance analysis
- Root cause analysis for process deviations
- Business process visualization
- Visualization of process mining results
- Machine-learning and business processes
- Measurement of business process models and business process modeling
- Information retrieval related to business process management
- Similarity related to processes and cases
- Integration of processes and process models
- Mathematical optimization of business processes
- Simulation of business processes

Applications of such analysis techniques and case studies in:
- Performance Measurement of business processes
- Business Process Reengineering
- Business Process Quality
- Emergent workflows
- Process discovery
- Conformance and risk management for business processes
- Operations Management and Six Sigma
- Data warehousing
- Static and dynamic optimization
- Self-management
- Monitoring of business processes
- Resource Allocation in business processes
- Prediction
- Dynamic composition of business processes

Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance, originality and technical quality. Papers should clearly establish the research contribution and the relation to previous research.

In parallel with the workshop, there is a BPI challenge which provides an opportunity to analyze a real-world event log. For more information, please refer to the website (
