First International Symposium on Data-driven Process Discovery and Analysis
IFIP Working Groups 2.6 and 2.12
June 29th - July 1st, 2011 Campione d’Italia, Italy

With the increasing automation of business processes growing amounts of process data become available. This opens new research opportunities for business process data analysis, mining and modeling. The aim of the IFIP 2.6 - 2.12 First International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and Analysis is to offer a forum where researchers from different communities and the industry can share their insight in this hot new field.
The Symposium will feature a number of advanced keynotes illustrating new approaches, shorter presentations on recent research, a  competitive PhD seminar and selected research and industrial demonstrations. All this in the nice setting of Campione d’Italia, the Italian enclave surrounded by Swiss territory, on the shores of Lake Lugano.

* Call for Papers *
The IFIP International Symposium on Data-Driven Process Discovery and Analysis  offers to researchers and practitioners working in business process data modeling, representation and privacy-aware analysis a unique opportunity to present new approaches and research results. 
The Symposium will bring together leading researchers, engineers and scientists from around the world. Full papers must not exceed 10 pages. Short papers are limited to at most 4 pages. All papers must be original contributions, not previously published or under review for publication elsewhere. All contributions must be written in English. 
Accepted papers will be published in a pre-proceedings volume with ISBN. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles to a post-symposium volume of LNBIP (Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing, http://www.springer.com/series/7911), scheduled for late 2011 (extended papers length is between 7000 and 9000 words). Around 15-20 papers will be selected for the publication after a second round of review.

* Call for PhD Research Plans *
The SIMPDA PhD Seminar is a workshop for Ph.D. students from all over the world. The goal of the Seminar is to help students with their thesis and research plans by providing feedback and general advice on how to use their research results.
Students interested in participating in the Seminar should submit an extended abstract describing their research. Submissions are sought relating to any aspect of Process Data: technical advances, usage and impact studies, policy analyses, social and institutional implications, theoretical contributions, interaction and design advances, and innovative applications, social implications.
> SIMPDA PhD award
A doctoral award will be recognized by the SIMPDA PhD Jury for the best research plan submitted.
> Tutored research activities 
Interested PhD students can apply to carry out pre-symposium tutored research activities. Such activities provide a unique way to identify research questions and will culminate with presentations to be given at the symposium.
In order to apply, please contact paolo.ceravolo at unimi.it
> Student Scholarships
An application for a limited number of scholarships aimed at students coming from emerging countries has been submitted to IFIP.
In order to apply, please contact paolo.ceravolo at unimi.it

* Call for Demonstrations and Posters *
Demonstrations showcase innovative technology and applications, allowing you to share your work directly with your colleagues in a high-visibility setting. Demonstration proposals should consist of a title, extended abstract, and contact information for the authors and should not exceed 2 pages. 
Posters permit presentation of late-breaking results in an informal, interactive manner. Poster proposals should consist of a title, extended abstract, and contact information for the authors, and should not exceed 2 pages. 
Accepted demonstrations or posters will be displayed at the conference. Abstracts will appear in the proceedings.

* Submissions *
Contributions to all calls should be submitted electronically to the Symposium management system connecting to http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=simpda2011. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to participate in the conference and present his/her work. 
Accepted papers will be published in a pre-proceedings volume with ISBN. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit extended articles in a IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology Series (http://www.springer.com/series/6102), scheduled for late 2011. Extended versions will be selected for publication in the volume after a second review round of review.
