Process Mining Events in Fall 2012

At Process Mining Camp and at the BPM conference we have seen again that rather than just reading about process mining, it’s so powerful to actually meet other people who are also interested in the topic. So, to make sure you are not missing anything, here is a list of the upcoming process mining events we are aware of.
