About ML4PM

The International Workshop on Leveraging Machine Learning in Process Mining - ML4PM - is a premier event that aims to foster collaboration and innovation in the intersection of machine learning and process mining. Over the past few years, the combination of these two fields has generated a lot of interest, and this workshop provides an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share their latest findings and explore new directions for future research.

The workshop will feature a diverse range of papers that showcase the latest advances in automated process modelling, predictive process mining, deep learning techniques, and online process mining. These themes reflect the most exciting and promising areas of research at the intersection of machine learning and process mining. By fostering dialogue and collaboration among participants, the workshop aims to catalyze breakthroughs and push the boundaries of what is possible in this exciting and rapidly-evolving field.

ML4PM 2023 will be held in Rome, in conjunction with the ICPM conference.

Call for Papers

This workshop invites papers that present works that lay in the intersection between machine learning and process mining. The event provides a suitable environment to discuss new approaches presented by researchers and practitioners. Main themes include automated process modeling, predictive process mining, application of deep learning techniques and online process mining. The workshop will count with leading researchers, engineers and scientists who are actively working on these topics.


Topics of interest for submission include, but are not limited to:

Submission Guidelines

Contributions to all calls should be submitted electronically to the Workshop management system connecting to https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=icpm2023. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to participate in the conference and present his/her work.

Submissions must be original contributions that have not been published previously.  Authors are requested to prepare submissions according to the format of the Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP) series by Springer href="http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-791344-0. Submissions must be in English and must not exceed 12 pages (including figures, bibliography and appendices). Each paper should contain a short abstract, clarifying the relation of the paper with the workshop topics, clearly state the problem being addressed, the goal of the work, the results achieved, and the relation to the literature.

A special issue of the Journal of Intelligent Information Systems (Springer, https://www.springer.com/journal/10844) devoted to a selection of the best ICPM workshop papers will be scheduled in the months following the conference.

Registrations are managed by the ICPM system

Cracking the Nut: Unraveling Challenges in Predictive Process Monitoring

In this keynote, I will tackle the complexities of Predictive Process Monitoring, focusing on five key challenges. We will delve into strategies for proper model evaluation, discuss generalization in deep learning models, and explore inter-case prediction models. Furthermore, we will make the link from case-level to model-level predictions, showing how process model forecasting can provide answers to tactical process questions. Finally, we will look into the struggle of PPM to improve its adoption in real-life.
