Process-Oriented CBR

Workshop Website

Process-Oriented Case-Based Reasoning (POCBR) aims at applying Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) methods and principles in process and workflow management. The workshop on Process-oriented Case-based Reasoning is dedicated to encourage the exchange of information and ideas about POCBR and its application to process workflows and Business Process Management (BPM), Workflow Management, and other means of technical support for procedural knowledge in different application areas like business processes, software processes, planning processes, or search processes. The workshop should 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.

The workshop on Process-oriented Case-based Reasoning intends to encourage the exchange of information and ideas about Process-oriented Case-based Reasoning (POCBR) by contributions in areas that include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Case-based representation of process knowledge (by workflows, traces, plans, etc.)
  • Case-based retrieval for process optimization
  • Similarity measures for process optimization
  • Experience reuse in POCBR
  • Case-based adaptation for process optimization
  • Extraction of process knowledge
  • Evaluating CBR tools for POCBR
  • Agile workflow technology with CBR components
  • CBR in (commercial) workflow management tools
  • Lessons learned in POCBR investigations
  • Challenge tasks for CBR systems in the context of business processes, software processes, planning processes, search processes
  • Visualization and explanation of process knowledge
  • Explanation of reasoning knowledge
  • Cross-process knowledge reuse
  • Maintenance of business process knowledge
  • Process-oriented transfer learning
  • 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

Paper Submission

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 via the Easychair system. The CEUR proceedings format is required for the final camera-ready copy. The authors instructions and the LaTeX template can be found here:

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: July 8, 2022
  • Notification Date: July 22, 2022
  • Camera-Ready Deadline: July 29, 2022

Workshop submissions will be subject to review by at least two reviewers who will be members of the Programme Committee. Researchers who submit demonstration of POCBR systems will be required to provide access to the software (or a video of its functionality) in advance to facilitate evaluation.
