Process Mining Camp 2015

Come join us at camp!

Process Mining Camp is where professionals gather to learn from seasoned experts. A place where you can meet fellow explorers and exchange ideas, tips, and experiences. Old-timers and greenhorns alike, this is where we get down to business and share stories from the frontier at the campfire.

Whether you are an expert or have just recently heard of process mining, here you can meet other people who are just as curious and passionate about process mining as you are. Learn about how others are using process mining, and what they have to tell you.

Since 2012, Process Mining Camp has become the annual family meeting for the process mining community.

Last year, more than 100 process mining enthusiast came to Eindhoven from 16 different countries, some from places as far away as Brazil, the USA, and South Korea.

Vox populi ·What previous years' campers are saying

Wil van der Aalst

“Process mining camp is the place to be for process mining practitioners. The camp enables process mining enthusiasts to share practical experiences and learn best practices. Moreover, it facilitates community building through the unique setup of the camp.”

— Prof. Wil van der Aalst

TU Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Alberto Manuel

“If there is an event you should attend to actually learn about process mining, and how it is making a difference by helping organizations to change and adapt faster, this is the one for which you should save the date.”

— Alberto Manuel

ProcessSphere, Portugal

Samuel Itzikowitz

“Especially as a beginner in the field, I found the camp extremely informative, educational and important for me. It was not easy for me to make the trip but now, afterwards, I feel so good and so happy that I made the effort.”

— Prof. Samuel Itzikowitz

COMAS, Israel

Frank van Geffen

“As chairman of the Dutch NGI-NGN Special Interest Group on Process Mining I really endorse the sharing of practices and knowledge across the process mining community. My experience from previous years is that ‘The Camp’ is the place to be if you want to experience the world wide application of process mining. It's leading edge, realistic and down to earth. A great way to expand your network and you just might get that breakthrough you needed to further your efforts in conducting successful process mining projects.”

— Frank van Geffen

Rabobank & Ngi, Netherlands

Ward Steeman

“In our company we are extremely focused on processes, and we see process mining as a valuable technique to quickly understand how processes are executed in reality. The process mining camps have been very important for us to learn about the possibilities and limitations. Rather than process mining as only a ‘technique’, for us it's the place to listen to other companies revealing their experience with process mining.”

— Ward Steeman

Volvo, Belgium

Mitchell Cunningham

“Attending process mining camp was a great opportunity to learn from other process mining practitioners in a relaxed and informal setting. Particularly helpful were presentations and discussions around key process mining challenges including aligning process mining efforts to organisational culture and obtaining and preparing process data.”

— Mitchell Cunningham

Campsite ·TU/e Auditorium

An event like Process Mining Camp deserves an appropriate venue. What better campsite to choose than the TU Eindhoven (TU/e), the place where process mining was invented?

This year's camp will take place in the TU/e Auditorium (Blauwe Zaal). You can expect comfortable seating, a nice, roomy area with lots of air to breathe, and a professional projector and sound equipment.

The auditorium is located in the south-western corner of the TU Eindhoven campus, and it can be reached from Eindhoven central train station by a 7 minute's walk. If you want to come by car, parking space is available nearby on the university campus.

Blauwe Zaal @ TU/e Auditorium

  • Come by train: The train station is Eindhoven Centraal. Leave the station on the northern side (where buses stop), and turn right. You can see the university buildings in a few minutes' distance. Cross at the traffic lights, and follow the scenic path. The Auditorium is on your left, about thirty meters after crossing a small bridge. (Click here for a map).
  • Come by plane: Eindhoven has an airport serviced mostly by smaller airlines. Bus routes connect the airport to the central train station. If you come in via Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport, there are train connections directly to Eindhoven central station every 30 minutes, leaving from a station right below the ground floor of the airport. Travel time is about 90 minutes.
  • Come by car: When you are on the TU Eindhoven campus, look for a tall, green building, it is right opposite of the Auditorium. Also, you may want to print the campus map here. Parking on the campus is € 7,50 per day (paid in cash, or by debit card).

Are you staying overnight?

You really should! Otherwise you will miss the process mining party and goodbye breakfast. Furthermore, you might want to join our popular 2-day process mining training on 16 & 17 June, right after camp.

If you need a recommendation for a place to stay, consider the following options:

In general, each hotel that is in walking distance to the Eindhoven train station should be fine. Just make sure you book your hotel early (in fact, do it right away) — A quite popular Dutch pop singer will give five concerts in the Eindhoven football stadium, just before and after camp, so hotels will be more busy than usual.

Your hosts for the day

We are Anne and Christian from Fluxicon, and we love process mining. After finishing our PhDs with Wil van der Aalst in Eindhoven, we founded Fluxicon with two goals in mind. For one, we want to build the best process mining software for professionals. At least as important a goal for us is to spread the word about process mining, to grow the process mining community worldwide, and to bring the community closer together.

For us, Process Mining Camp is that dream come to life. The whole process mining community is coming together in one place for a day. No academic talks, and no sales show. At camp, we focus squarely and exclusively on the practical application of process mining.

In 2012, more than 70 smart and driven people joined us for the first Process Mining Camp. In 2013, we moved Process Mining Camp to the Zwarte Doos and added workshops, and we had a great day with more than 100 process mining enthusiasts from all over the world. In 2014, camp tickets sold out very quickly, and process mining enthusiasts from more than 16 countries came for a varied program including workshops, keynotes, and a panel discussion.

This year, we will go back to the roots and put the practice talks front and center of the Process Mining Camp. We want to give our speakers the space to really go into detail, so that they can provide hands-on insights for you to take home and try for yourself. We think you are going to really love this year's camp, and we cannot wait to meet you in Eindhoven!

If there is anything we can help you with preparing for camp, or if you have questions, just shoot us an email at anne@fluxicon.com.

We hope to see you at camp soon,
