As technology becomes increasingly intelligent, various factors within the field of data science are seeing significant transformation. Process analysis is one area that is undergoing substantial development due to the implementation of semantic reasoning and web technologies. The congruence of these two systems has created various applications and developments in data processing and analysis across several professional fields. Applications and Developments in Semantic Process Mining is an essential reference source that discusses the improvement of process mining algorithms through the implementation of semantic modeling and representation. Featuring research on topics such as domain ontologies, fuzzy modeling, and information extraction, the book takes into account the different stages of process mining and its application in real time and then expounds the classical process mining techniques to semantical preparation of the extracted models for further analysis and querying at a more abstract level. The book provides a wide-ranging idea of the application and development of semantic process mining that is expected to be beneficial and used by professionals, software and data engineers, software developers, IT experts, business owners and entrepreneurs, and process analysts.

Life expectancy is increasing, and we are all expected to work for longer as a result. A balance must be found between the demands of work and human capabilities, and this makes the prevention of workplace-related health problems more important than ever. Emerging technologies, such as smart textiles, wearable devices, and the Internet of Things have enabled the development of intelligent biomedical clothing and the integration of pervasive sensitive services into the environment, and together with ambient intelligence technology techniques and big data analytics, have fostered a proliferation of p-Health monitoring solutions. This book presents a collection of the most significant challenges and advances in the field of intelligent workspaces and personalized ergonomics, bringing together the most relevant results of various international research projects. The book is organized into three main sections: Personalized Ergonomics, which explores the need for practical and reliable risk assessment methods for the prevention of musculoskeletal disorders and the enhancement of the workplace; Pervasive Technology for Intelligent Workplaces, which identifies the opportunities and challenges of technology-based interventions and the security and privacy issues of the smart workplace; and Data Warehouse Governance and Analytics. The book concludes with a chapter on lessons learnt. The transformation of the working environment into a healthy and intelligent space will not only support ergonomists, employees and employers, but may also be the solution to the sustainability of our current social welfare systems, and the book will be of interest to all those concerned with workplace health.
The domain of eHealth faces ongoing challenges to deliver 21st century healthcare. Digitalization, capacity building and user engagement with truly interdisciplinary and cross-domain collaboration are just a few of the areas which must be addressed. This book presents 190 full papers from the Medical Informatics Europe (MIE 2018) conference, held in Gothenburg, Sweden, in April 2018. The MIE conferences aim to enable close interaction and networking between an international audience of academics, health professionals, patients and industry partners. The title of this year’s conference is: Building Continents of Knowledge in Oceans of Data – The Future of Co-Created eHealth, and contributions cover a broad range of topics related to the digitalization of healthcare, citizen participation, data science, and changing health systems, addressed from the perspectives of citizens, patients and their families, healthcare professionals, service providers, developers and policy makers. The second part of the title in particular has attracted a large number of papers describing strategies to create, evaluate, adjust or deliver tools and services for improvements in healthcare organizations or to enable citizens to respond to the challenges of dealing with health systems. Papers are grouped under the headings: standards and interoperability, implementation and evaluation, knowledge management, decision support, modeling and analytics, health informatics education and learning systems, and patient-centered services. Attention is also given to development for sustainable use, educational strategies and workforce development, and the book will be of interest to both developers and practitioners of healthcare services.
This book is a revised version of the PhD dissertation written by the author at the Department of Business Informatics and Operations Management at Ghent University in Belgium. It addresses shortcomings in Business Process Management concerning loosely framed knowledge-intensive processes, which are characterized by their numerous valid process variants and their reliance on knowledge workers to apply their knowledge to decide on a suitable process variant that fits the context of a specific process execution. The goal was to lay the foundation for a process-aware business process management (IT-)system to support such processes. Several proof-of-concept implementations have been made for the core components and were evaluated in the domain of the healthcare. Starting from an artificial, but realistic, case about patients that arrive in the emergency room with suspected arm fractures and later progressing to a case study of the diagnosis and treatment of patients in the emergency department of a real hospital, using data from their patient files. In 2020, the PhD dissertation won the “CAiSE PhD award”, granted to outstanding PhD theses in the field of Information Systems Engineering.
Theoretical Aspects, Algorithms, Techniques and Open Challenges in Process Mining
Author: Andrea Burattin
After a brief presentation of the state of the art of process-mining techniques, Andrea Burratin proposes different scenarios for the deployment of process-mining projects, and in particular a characterization of companies in terms of their process awareness. The approaches proposed in this book belong to two different computational paradigms: first to classic "batch process mining," and second to more recent "online process mining." The book encompasses a revised version of the author's PhD thesis, which won the "Best Process Mining Dissertation Award" in 2014, awarded by the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining.
