Business Process Intelligence (BPI) is an emerging area that has been taking increasing importance during the last years as a consequence of the pressing need that companies are experiencing to improve the business processes underlying their business operations to better meet their business goals. A number of groups in different research areas are working on technologies to support different aspects of BPI, even if they do not call it that way. Many other names exist for such technologies, and there is a confusion among the exact meaning of names like BAM (Business Activity Monitoring), BOM (Business Operations Management), BPM (Business Performance Management), among others. The reality is that there is much overlap among techniques and tools supporting all these technologies. The realization of a workshop on BPI gives the opportunity to consolidate this field and start building a community that recognizes BPI as an area encompassing all these technologies with the end goal of improving business operations. Research papers covering among others the topics listed below are highly sought for this workshop. In addition, since BPI is an area that is still immature and controversial, position papers are also welcome. In particular, there are different opinions about whether BPI is just the application of known business intelligence and data mining techniques to the business process domain or there is something fundamentally new that requires new developments and research on new techniques. Other aspects of BPI like ultimate goals, level of automation, real-time readiness and business impact are good candidates for experience papers.


Areas of particular interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to):

- Process discovery
- Prediction
- Exception handling
- Static optimization
- Dynamic optimization
- Adaptiveness
- Self-management
- Real-time
- Automation infrastructure
- Root cause analysis
- Business impact analysis
- Business process data warehousing
- Mining process execution data
- Analytics
- Performance monitoring
- Suitability of existing products
- Resource allocation


Prospective authors are invited to submit papers for presentation in any of the areas listed above. Only papers in English will be accepted, and the length of the paper should not exceed 8 pages. Papers should be formatted in LNCS format (see for details). The BPI 05 web page will contain the most actual information. The title page must contain a short abstract, a classification of the topic covered, preferably using the list of topics above, and an indication of the submission category (regular paper/position paper/industry paper). Papers should be submitted electronically to one of the organization members Malu Castellanos ( or Ton Weijters ( Please e-mail a self-contained PostScript file or PDF file. All papers will be reviewed by three PC members.


On-site proceedings and/or post-proceedings printed by Springer (the conference organization committee is in negotiation with Springer).


The workshop will start with a keynote by our distinguished speaker Boualem Benatallah, followed by 25 minutes presentations of accepted papers organized by sessions according to the technologies involved in the work reported and the type of paper (research, experience, position). The workshop will close with an open discussion of all participants.
