–This event is organized in conjunction with the International Conference on Business Process Management (BPM 2019) in Vienna on September 2, 2019–

The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data. The ultimate goal of data science techniques is not to collect more data, but to extract knowledge and insights from existing data in various forms. For analyzing and improving processes, event data is the main source of information. In recent years, a new discipline has emerged combining traditional process analysis and data-centric analysis: Process-Oriented Data Science (PODS). The interdisciplinary nature of this new research area has resulted in its application for analyzing processes in different domains such as education, finances, and especially healthcare.

The 2nd International Workshop on Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare 2019 (PODS4H19) aims at providing a high-quality forum for interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners (both data/process analysts and medical audience) to exchange research findings and ideas on healthcare process analysis techniques and practices. PODS4H research includes a wide range of topics from process mining techniques adapted for healthcare processes, to practical issues on implementing PODS methodologies in healthcare centers’ analysis units.

This workshop is an initiative of the Process-Oriented Data Science for Healthcare Alliance.

 Workshop Topics

Submitted works should involve the analysis, management, or improvement of processes using recorded data in the healthcare domain. Non process-centric approaches will fall out of scope. The workshop aims at both more theoretical contributions such as new techniques and algorithms, and more applied contributions such as methodologies and case studies.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Process Mining in Healthcare
  • Process Discovery and Data-aided Process Modeling in Healthcare
  • Conformance Checking and Compliance Analysis of Healthcare Processes
  • Data-aided Process Enhancement and Repair
  • Healthcare Process Prediction and Recommendation
  • Healthcare Process Simulation
  • Healthcare Process Optimization
  • Process-Aware Hospital Information Systems Analysis and Data Extraction
  • Interfaces for PODS4H
  • Disease-driven PODS4H
  • Methodologies and Best Practices for PODS4H
  • Case Studies and Application of PODS4H
  • WACI (Wild And Crazy Ideas) for PODS4H

Submission Instructions

Two types of submissions are accepted:
