======================================================

Scope

======================================================

 


The integration of process mining and AI techniques is crucial for transforming event data into valuable insights for improving process execution. However, current approaches face challenges such as lack of documentation, traceability issues, and the use of opaque black-box components. The first International Workshop on Explainable Knowledge Aware Process Intelligence aims at motivating researchers from diverse fields to offer significant insights and contributions aimed at addressing the aforementioned challenges in the realm of knowledge-aware process intelligence.

 


======================================================

Target Audience

======================================================

 


Researchers, academics, and industry professionals with an interest in process mining, artificial intelligence, knowledge representation, and business process management.

 


======================================================

Overview

======================================================

 


The first International Workshop on Explainable Knowledge Aware Process Intelligence aims at contributing to the advancement of explainable, knowledge-aware process intelligence and expanding the vibrant community dedicated to addressing challenges in the process mining landscape.  

Due to the ongoing digitalization undergone by organizations in recent years, there has been a notable surge in interest in Process Intelligence research. Specifically, the automated extraction of knowledge from the ever-growing volume of event data holds the potential to yield valuable insights for enhancing process execution. Process mining, coupled with AI techniques, plays a pivotal role in this domain, leading the charge in transforming event data into valuable knowledge for companies. Despite the effectiveness of existing techniques, two primary issues persist: the lack of documentation and traceability stemming from ad-hoc procedures, and the use of opaque black-box components. Moreover, there is the need to explore the integration of domain knowledge to steer the knowledge extraction process towards more meaningful outcomes. Thus, in this research area many intriguing problems, that could result in comprehensive sets of techniques for achieving explainable, knowledge-aware process intelligence, are left open. 

The goal of the workshop is to motivate researchers from diverse fields to offer significant insights and contributions aimed at addressing the aforementioned challenges in the realm of knowledge-aware process intelligence.

Venue

======================================================

 


EKAPI will be held in Roccella Ionica (RC), Italy. Roccella features an unspoiled stretch of the Ionian Sea, recognized with numerous blue flags for its pristine waters. Tracing its roots back to Greek colonization, the town, once named Aracella, unveils its history through picturesque alleys and coastal districts like Zirgone and Sant’Antonio. Offering year-round appeal, Roccella Ionica truly comes to life in summer with its enchanting beach, sophisticated marina, and the esteemed Roccella Jazz Festival - Mediterranean  Rumors, boasting thirty-nine editions and international acclaim. The conference location is the Club Hotel Kennedy in Roccella Ionica (https://www.clubhotelkennedy.com), Reggio Calabria, situated on the marvelous Jasmine Coast.
