Meet The Process Mining Family

Process Mining Camp 2015 -- Get your ticket now!

There are less than 3 weeks until we meet at Process Mining Camp on 15 June. If you have not secured your ticket yet, you can still get one on the Process Mining Camp Website. Don’t wait too long, they are going fast.

We are working hard to finalize the program, and we will start announcing the first speakers here on this blog very soon. Stay tuned!

The Hallway Track

Today, we want to spend some time on the social part of this year’s camp. If you have already registered, you were asked during registration whether you plan to attend the process mining party in the evening, and the breakfast in the morning after camp. Both the party and breakfast are new to this year’s camp. So, why did we add them and what can you expect?

Process Mining Camp is the annual meetup of process mining practitioners, where you can—once a year—meet the community of likeminded folks who are just as enthusiastic about process mining as you are. For many of you, starting to introduce process mining in your company is a new avenue, with many questions coming up along the way. The best way to fast-track your progress, and to gain more confidence in your approach, is to exchange experiences with others who are going through that same process. And if you are an experienced practitioner of many years, you don’t normally know that many people who are on the same level as you are, people who you can still learn from.

Of course the Process Mining Camp program itself is designed to give you, newcomers and experts alike, lots of inspiration and tips to think about and use for your own practice. At the same time, the most valuable insights often come from hallway-track conversations with your peers, where you can share your story and get direct feedback as well. So, the actual chance to talk to other campers face to face is just as important as the program itself.

The thing is that, even if you have lots of breaks during the main conference program, everyone first needs to get up from their seat, find their way to the coffee corner, and settle in — and once you have found someone interesting to talk to… time is up!

That is why we have thought about how we can create more room for meaningful discussions between campers, besides the conversations that you will have in the breaks of the program.

Process Mining Camp Party

Process Mining Party

After the Process Mining Camp conference program is over, people will have different needs: Some of you will want to have a quick snack and get some rest (or catch up on email) in their hotel room. Others will want to join a small group over dinner in town. We can help you form groups and give tips for where to go.

After dinner, we will meet up again in a nice bar, in the city center of Eindhoven. You can expect a relaxed atmosphere, great music, and the chance to get to know each other over a refreshing beer, wine, or soft drink. We will have a special friend as a DJ over from Berlin, and we are really looking forward to a great evening rounding off the camp day together. Even if you are living in the area and do not plan to stay overnight, you should definitely come!

Process Mining Camp Breakfast

Grand Cafe Usine

For those of you who stay overnight, there will be a goodbye breakfast in a nice, spacious café (built in a former Philips factory) in the city center on Tuesday 16 June in the morning. Have as much breakfast, coffee and tea as you want, catch up with that one person who you did not get a chance to talk to yet, and get on your way home fresh and awake.

If you are participating in the co-located 2-day process mining training on 16/17 June: We will start a little later on day 1 and leave from the breakfast together.
