1st Conformance Checking Challenge 2019 (CCC19)

The 1st Conformance Checking Challenge 2019 (CCC19) is a co-located event of the 1st International Conference on Process Mining 2019. The Challenge provides participants with artifacts stemmed from a real process, and invites them to analyze the conformance between the observed (event log) and expected behaviour (model) of the process, with an emphasis on providing process owners with interpretable and understandable conformance results, in terms of a report.

This edition of the Challenge will focus on a medical training process. In particular, the process captures the procedure used for installing Central Venous Catheters (CVC) with ultrasound. Moreover, this process is the one used by doctors (instructors) for training medical students in this specific task.

Participants need to submit a report (at most 25 pages) about the findings considering both the student’s and instructor’s perspectives. We encourage participants to use any tools or technique at their disposal, including open-sourced or proprietary ones, as well as those implemented specifically for this challenge.

The Challenge is divided in 3 categories: Student, Academic, and Professional.

  *   Student: This category targets Bachelor, Master and PhD students or student teams. In this category, the focus is on the originality of the results, the validity of the claims, the interpretability of the conclusions, and the depth of the conformance analysis. Participants must include representative analysis for the 2 perspectives proposed (see Evaluation Section), but developing or implementing specifics tools is not required and they could use well-known existing ones.

  *   Academic: This category targets academics and the focus is much more on the novelty of the techniques applied and the understandability of the results, than the actual results. This provides a great opportunity for BPI researchers to show the practical applicability of their tools and/or techniques on a real process. Analysis can include 1 or both perspective (see Evaluation Section).

  *   Professional: This category targets professionals to show their skills in analyzing conformance and tool vendors to demonstrate the functionalities of their tools. The submitted reports will be judged on their level of professionalism, and must include the 2 perspectives proposed (see Evaluation Section). The participants are expected to report on a broader range of aspects, where each aspect does not have to be developed in full detail. The report submitted in this category will be judged on its completeness of analysis and usefulness for the purpose of a real-life business improvement setting.
