  • International Workshop on Process and Social Media Mining (PSMM-2019)

    Call for papers
    The international workshop on Process and Social Media Mining(PSMM-2019) aim to provide an extensive communication platform for disseminating process and social media mining ideas and methods to handle the latest academic research and technological achievements. PSMM-2019 plans to discuss the theories and methodologies from different disciplines such as computer science, business management, process mining, social network analysis, machine learning, network science, sociology, data science, and statistics in order to provide conceptual insights on process and social media analysis.

    Process mining allows for extracting information from time series text,log, and data details. Social Media Mining is the process of representing, analyzing, and extracting actionable patterns from large-scale social media data. The logically and data dependent techniques from process mining are particularly suited to collide with the existing time series analysis in social media. Hence, the workshop targets three types of contributions from prospective authors: Contributions dealing of theoretical and applications about process mining, social media, and their intersections.

    We invite researchers and practitioners to share their ideas, innovations, research achievements and solutions in process mining and social media mining. The workshop is co-located with FutureTech2019, 14th International Conference on Future Information Technology.

    General Co-Chairs: Xiao-liang Chen , Jian-hong Ye
