The accepted papers will be presented during the workshop and authors have ample time for their presentations and discussion. At the end of the workshop, the winner for the international Business Process Intelligence Challenge (BPI Challenge) and of the third Process Discovery Contest will be announced. ===== Description ===== Business Process Intelligence (BPI) refers to the application of data- and process-mining techniques in the field of Business Process Management. BPI is an area that spans process mining, process discovery, conformance checking, predictive analytics and many other techniques that are all gaining interest and importance in industry and research. In practice, BPI is embodied in tools for managing process execution by offering several features such as analysis, prediction, monitoring, control, and optimization. The two-day workshop aims at discussing the current state of ongoing research and sharing practical experiences, exchanging ideas and setting up future research directions. We aim to bring together practitioners and researchers from different communities such as business process management, information systems, 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 list of topics that are relevant to the BPI workshop includes, but is not limited to: Data-driven 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 * Decision mining * Conformance / compliance analysis * Root cause analysis for process deviations * Vizualization 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 ===== Submission Guidelines ===== Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance, originality and technical quality. The length of a paper must not exceed 12 pages, and there is no possibility to buy additional pages. Authors are requested to prepare submissions according to the LNCS/LNBIP format specified by Springer. The title page must contain a short abstract and a classification of the topics covered, preferably using the list of topics above. Papers should be submitted electronically through easychair. Members of an international and solid program committee will review all submissions. Each paper will be reviewed by 3 PC members guaranteeing that only papers presenting high quality and innovative research and practice issues in areas relevant to the workshop theme will be accepted. ===== Organizers ===== <html> <table width=“100”> <tr><td width=“50%”> <b>Boudewijn van Dongen</b> (<i>Corresponding Organizer</i>) <br> Department of Mathematics and Computer Science<br> Eindhoven University of Technology<br> P.O.
