*Second Workshop on Process-Oriented Case-Based Reasoning*
colocated with the
International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR-12)
* Submission Deadline: June 10, 2012
* Notification Date: July 7, 2012
* Camera-Ready Deadline: July 21, 2012
* Workshop Date: September 3, 2012
*Call for papers*
The second workshop on Process-oriented Case-based Reasoning (PO-CBR) is dedicated to address the challenges of integrating Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) with process-oriented research areas like Business Process Management, Workflow Management and Planning. Several types of processes are in the interest of this workshop, mainly business processes, software processes, planning processes, and search processes.
The workshop will serve as a means for exchanging novel as well as more consolidated ideas and examples in the field, and to identify promising research lines and challenges for the future.
It intends to encourage the exchange of information and ideas about PO-CBR by contributions in areas that include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Methodological issues:
o Case-based representation of process knowledge (by workflows, traces, plans, etc.)
o Case-based retrieval for process optimization
o Similarity measures for process optimization
o Experience reuse in PO-CBR
o Case-based adaptation for process optimization
o Extraction of process knowledge
o Visualization and explanation of process knowledge
- Applications, systems and tools:
o PO-CBR applications in Business Process Management, Software Processes, E-Science, Web Science, E-Governance, E-Health, product development, search, games, cooking, and further application domains
o Evaluating CBR tools for PO-CBR
o Agile workflow technology with CBR components
o CBR in (commercial) workflow management tools
- Lessons learned in PO-CBR investigations
- Challenge tasks for CBR systems in the context of business processes, software processes, planning processes, search processes.
The Organizing Committee will select a subset of the submitted papers for oral presentation. Moreover, time will be reserved for a session where some participants can demonstrate their tools and illustrate the contributions of CBR technology to the field.
*Submission Procedure and Format*
We invite submissions of two types:
- Research and application papers: a maximum of 10 pages describing original contributions.
- Demonstration of process-related CBR systems: shorter papers will be admitted to this track, describing the CBR system/component designed/developed to deal with a specific process-related problem.
Papers must be submitted in electronic form as PDF. Springer LNCS is the format required for the final camera-ready copy. Authors' instructions along with LaTeX and Word macro files are available on the web at Springer.
