Process Mining Camp is where professionals gather to learn from their peers. 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.
Process mining is used by people all around the world, for hundreds of different use cases. At camp, you can meet people who face the same challenges as you, and exchange experiences. Campers are typically curious, driven, and nice people who are spearheading process mining initiatives in their organization.
Learn how others are using process mining. We have asked some practitioners to tell us their story. They will share all about their successes, the difficulties they faced, and their best tips and tricks.
Pick up new skills in one of our hands-on workshops, where seasoned experts will help you dive deep on a focus topic of your choice.
Dive into process mining for two days, and find out what others in the community are up to. We take care of food and drinks right there, so you can continue that conversation over lunch, coffee, or dinner.
Process Mining Camp is the only conference worldwide that is focused exclusively on the practical application of process mining.
Listen to information-packed practice talks, and talk shop with other process miners. You will love the enthusiastic atmosphere, and make new friends with process mining enthusiasts from all over the world.

Since 2012, Process Mining Camp has become the annual family meeting for the process mining community.
Last year, more than 210 process mining enthusiasts from 165 companies came to Eindhoven from 20 different countries, some from places as far away as Australia, the USA, and South Korea.
Practice talks are the heart and soul of Process Mining Camp. We have asked a number of smart process mining professionals to share their knowledge and experiences with you, no holds barred. Every talk is followed by ten minutes of discussion with the audience, so that you can get the answers you need.
We are currently busy putting together the program of this year's camp, and we already have secured a number of speakers with great stories to tell. Sign up to the camp mailing list, and we will let you know as soon as the program is finalized.
Do you have a great process mining story you would like to share at this year's camp? Contact Anne via firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know.
This year’s Process Mining Camp will be the very first to run for two straight days.
After a full day of listening to practice talks and interacting with your peers, you can join a selection of hands-on workshops and get your hands dirty on day two (30 June). Here, you will have the time to dive into various process mining topics in depth, in smaller groups of participants, and guided by an experienced expert.
Participation in the workshops is of course optional, but if you want to hone your craft and focus on your topic of choice with a group of like-minded process miners, you will fit right in!
Sign up to our camp mailing list to be notified as soon as further details about the workshops become available!
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
“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
Have you completed a successful process mining project in the past months that you are really proud of? A project that went so well, or produced such amazing results, that you cannot stop telling anyone around you about it? You know, the one that propelled process mining to a whole new level in your organization? We are pretty sure that a lot of you are thinking of your favorite project right now, and that you can’t wait to share it.
We want to help you showcase your best work and share it with the process mining community. This is why we introduced the Process Miner of the Year awards last year. In 2016, a team from Veco won Process Miner of the Year 2016 with a great process mining success story.
This year's best submission will receive the prestigious 2017 award at this year’s Process Mining Camp. Do you have a great process mining success story? Click here and find out how to submit it for awards consideration at our blog.
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 8 minute's walk. If you want to come by car, parking space is available nearby on the university campus.
If you need a recommendation for a place to stay, consider the following options:
In general, any hotel that is in walking distance to the Eindhoven train station should be fine.
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. In 2015, we moved to the auditorium to make more room, and 173 people from 17 different countries joined us at camp. Last year, more than 210 process mining enthusiasts from 165 companies in 20 different countries made the trip to Eindhoven.
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 email@example.com.
We hope to see you at camp soon,
Process Mining Camp 2017 is organized by Fluxicon.
