Call For Papers

Call for papers:
4th International Workshop on Decision Mining & Modeling for Business Processes (DeMiMoP’16)
in conjunction with BPM 2016, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 18-22 September 2016

Workshop Theme
The DeMiMoP’16 is the 4th edition of the workshop aiming at discovering and modeling decisions in combination with processes. The goals of this workshop include:
* To examine the relationship between decisions and processes, including models not only to model the process, but also to model the decisions.
* To enhance decision mining based on process data (e.g. event logs).
* To examine decision goals, structures, and their connection with business processes, in order to find a good integration between decision modeling and process modeling.
* To examine standards (DMN, BPMN) and their integration.
* To study how different process models can be designed to fit a decision process, according to various optimization criteria, such as throughput time, use of resources,
* To study the integration between declarative models (such as decision models, but also declarative process models) with traditional process models.
* To show best practices in separating process and decision concerns.

Most processes and business process models incorporate decisions of some kind. Decisions are typically based upon a number of business (decision) rules that describe the premises and possible outcomes of a specific situation. Business decisions are important, but are often hidden in process flows, process activities, logs or in the head of employees, so that they need to be discovered and modeled using state-of-art intelligent techniques. In a number of cases, a particular business process does not just contain decisions, but the entire process is about making a decision. Separating rules and decisions from the process simplifies the process model (separation of concerns). Using this workshop we try to increase the integration between different modeling perspectives.
This is the fourth edition of the workshop. For the previous edition, see

Only papers in English will be accepted and must present original research contributions not concurrently submitted elsewhere. The length of a paper must not exceed 12 pages. Authors are requested to prepare submissions according to Springer’s LNCS formatting guidelines ( The title page must contain a short abstract and a list of keywords, preferably using the list of topics given above. Papers should be submitted electronically to
Each manuscript will be reviewed by at least three program committee members guaranteeing that only papers presenting high quality work and innovative research in areas relevant to the workshop theme will be accepted. All accepted papers will appear in the workshop proceedings published by Springer in the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series. There will be a single LNBIP volume dedicated to the proceedings of all BPM workshops.
Accepted papers imply that at least one of the authors will register for the BPM 2016 conference and present the paper at the DeMiMoP’16 workshop.
