Process Mining Camp on 16 & 17 June — Save the Date!

The date has been set — This year’s Process Mining Camp will take place on 16 & 17 June in Eindhoven1!

For the ninth time, process mining enthusiasts from all around the world will come together in the place where process mining was born. Once again, this year’s Process Mining Camp will run for two full days. The first day (16 June) will be a day full of inspiring practice talks from a diverse set of companies. The second day (17 June) will be a hands-on workshop day where smaller groups of participants dive into various process mining topics in depth.

Process Mining Camp is not your run-of-the-mill, corporate conference but a community meet-up with a unique flair. We are very proud of the fact that Process Mining Camp is just as international as the process mining community itself. Over the past years, people from 34 different countries have come to camp to listen to their peers, to share their ideas and experiences, and to make new friends.

You know what to do: Open up your calendar, mark 16 & 17 June as busy, and notify your boss that you will be attending a conference in week 25 this year. If you need a visa to travel to the Netherlands, it is a good idea to already apply for that as well. Also: Sign up for the camp mailing list here to be notified when tickets go on sale. And even if you cannot make it to camp this year, you should sign up to receive the presentations and video recordings as soon as they become available.

In the meantime, we are excited to share two things with you:

We made a brand-new home for the camp talks

We record all talks at Process Mining Camp so that everyone of you can learn from the experiences our speakers have shared at camp — regardless of whether you have been there in person or not.

Our campers are honest and forthcoming folks who do not just brag about their successes but also share their pitfalls and failures. Quite often, you can learn much more from those experiences than from “success stories”, where everything just went really great, and everyone got a cookie.

To make it easy for you to dive in and explore the wealth of process mining knowledge that has been accumulated over the years, we have put together a brand-new camp website that already contains all the talks from Process Mining Camp 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018, complete with slides and all bells and whistles — And this is of course the place where we intend to put all the rest of our talks going forward, so it’s a good idea to save a bookmark.

Now, while we are all patiently waiting for this year’s camp to roll around, why don’t you check out some of the camp talks that are already online from the previous years? You will get lots of new ideas about approaches and use cases that you might not have considered so far.

Time capsule: Process Mining Camp 2013 & 2014

While we are on the topic of previous camp talks, some of you may have noticed that the talks for 2013 and 2014 have never been released.

Initially, it appeared that there were only quite bad recordings from those two years. Now, we went looking once more and, fortunately, we did find the “good” recordings that were long thought to be lost. We polished them up — and they turned out to be pretty great!

We are going to share those talks with all of you in the coming weeks, right here on our blog. It is going to be quite a journey through time, teleporting us back to the early stages of our process mining community from six and even seven years ago, so strap in!

See you in Eindhoven on 16 June!

  1. Eindhoven is located in the south of the Netherlands. Next to its local airport, it can also be reached easily from Amsterdams Schiphol airport (direct connection from Schiphol every 30 minutes, the journey takes about 1h 20 min). ↩︎
