Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence for Process Mining
Submission Date: 2022-12-31

The work of medium and large enterprises is typically governed by business processes that are carried on through information systems. The execution of processes via information systems and the data exchange between organizations leave trails in an ocean of event process’ data. Process Mining is a field of research that focuses on the analysis of these event data, aiming to enable process stakeholders to gain insights into how processes are really being executed. The acquired insights aim to pinpoint the issues that are typically encountered, e.g., in terms of poor performance or compliance. These insights need to be actionable and concretely provide directions to analysts towards more efficient process executions. While Process Mining and Artificial Intelligence have shown to be successful per se, their combination can uncover invaluable opportunities. Techniques from the Artificial Intelligence domain can be extended and specialized to answer typical business and research questions of the Process Mining domain, e.g. to build process monitoring and recommender systems, to discover process models, to develop conformance-checking techniques and to correlate process behaviour and quantities of interest. Process Mining can provide a new repertoire of research questions, application domains, and showcases to the research area of Artificial Intelligence. This special issue is open to submissions of original research papers by any scientist or researcher of several areas of Artificial Intelligence (e.g., Machine learning, Fuzzy Models, Bayesian learning, Automatic Planning) and any area of process science (e.g. Process mining, Business Process Management, Robotic Process Automation, Complex and/or Online Event Data Processing and Analysis, Decision Mining, Process-aware Recommender Systems, Business Process Simulation). We particularly aim at submissions that illustrate applications on real-life domains, and that demonstrate the practical feasibility of the techniques proposed.

Special Issue on Metaheuristics for Sustainable Supply Chain Management
Submission Date: 2023-03-01

There are several entities involved in a supply chain network such as human resource, transportation and logistics systems, distribution centres, producers, vendors, warehouses, retailers, etc. The efficient and reliable functioning of all the associated activities help the organizations reduce the cost, maintain desired quality and grow in the competitive market. Several researchers from academia and industry have modelled the associated problems which inherently involve continuous and discrete variables, soft and hard constraints, and conflicting objectives. In the recent times, metaheuristics are becoming more popular due to their simple mathematical formulations and applicability in wider class of problems. They are inspired from the intelligence and phenomena in nature and are broadly classified into Bio-inspired, Physics based, Socio-inspired as well as Swarm based methods. The applicability of metaheuristics in solving numerous types of problems from the supply chain management is already proven; however, it is necessary to address the problems involving uncertainty especially with an aim to post COVID scenario. The issue intends to invite novel and modified metaheuristics for solving the supply chain management problems with the goal of addressing resilience, sustainability and efficiency.

Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence for Biometrics-based Applications
Submission Date: 2023-08-15

Biometrics technologies were primarily used by law enforcement. Nowadays, they are increasingly being used by government agencies and private industries to verify a person's identity. Indeed, biometrics-based applications have come to play an integral role in society, e.g., for identity management, surveillance, access control, social and welfare management, and automatic border control, with these applications alone being used either directly or indirectly by billions of individuals. Biometrics systems recognize a person based on physiological characteristics, such as fingerprints, hand, facial features, iris patterns, or behavioral characteristics that are learned or acquired, including the signing way, typing rhythm, or even walking pattern. This special issue is open to submissions of original research papers by any scientist or researcher of Artificial Intelligence areas for biometrics-based applications. The objective of this special issue is to provide a stage for worldwide researchers to publish their recent and original results in artificial intelligence for biometrics applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: Machine learning approaches Dictionary learning, sparse representations, hybrid representations Deep learning, transfer learning, domain adaptation, optimal transport Bayesian learning Fuzzy models Reinforcement learning Presentation Attack Detection Adversarial Attack Detection DeepFake Detection

Special Issue on Artificial Intelligence for Machinery Diagnostics and Prognostics
Submission Date: 2023-10-15

Machinery diagnostics and prognostics are involved in several engineering areas, such as manufacturing, energy, transportation, and aerospace. In these areas, the failure of key components such as bearings, gears, and motors will have a serious negative impact on the operation of the entire equipment. Timely detection of faults in machinery can ensure operational efficiency and quality, and prevent catastrophic accidents. With the development of sensor technology and communication technology, machinery diagnostics and prognostics have entered the era of big data. The combination of artificial intelligence technology and big data has significantly improved the accuracy of machinery diagnostics and prognostics. Artificial intelligence technology makes it possible to mine information about the health status of equipment directly from the raw data, but the distribution of the data is a key factor in determining the effectiveness of data mining. For example, data imbalance, a real and unavoidable data distribution in the field of machinery diagnostics and prognostics, can seriously impact the training process and the convergence correctness of diagnostic and prognostic models. Therefore, it is important to eliminate the negative effects of data imbalance when constructing machinery diagnostics and prognostics models in order to improve the accuracy of diagnostics and prognostics in practical applications. Artificial Intelligence has received increasing attention for machinery diagnostics and prognostics in recent years. However, there are still some outstanding issues that need to be improved. This special issue aims at stimulating discussions through state-of-the-art contributions on the latest research and development, up-to-date issues, and challenges.
