Process Mining Camp 2020


Every year, we love seeing the community come together at Process Mining Camp. However, after careful consideration, and given everything that we currently know about the unfolding corona virus pandemic and corresponding guidance, we don’t see how it would be possible to hold this year’s Process Mining Camp in a responsible manner as a physical event.

While this year’s camp is just a minor casualty in the grand scheme of things, it is still bad news. We are currently thinking about what we can do instead to fill this gap, and how to make some lemonade from all this.

We already have some great ideas, and we are busy working with our speakers to bring you something exciting this year. Make sure to sign up to our camp mailing list and stay tuned for updates.


Come join us at camp!

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.

  • Meet the Community

    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.

  • Practice Talks

    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.

  • Hands-On Workshops

    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.

  • Process Mining All Day

    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.

In light of the changed situation related to the global crisis with the corona virus pandemic, we have decided that we cannot hold a physical event in Eindhoven this year in a responsible manner.

We are currently hard at work on a safe, convenient, but also fun and exciting replacement option which captures the spirit of the camp. Please make sure to subscribe to the camp mailing list, so that we can keep you in the loop!

Stay tuned

We will announce our updated plans for Process Mining Camp 2020 as soon as possible. Join our camp mailing list, and you will be the first to know more!

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

Last year, more than 220 process mining enthusiasts came to Eindhoven from 16 different countries, some from places as far away as the USA and Japan.

Tales from the frontier ·Talks you will remember

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 and let us know.

Process Mining At a Global Telco

Carmen Lasa Gómez (Telefónica)

Due to Carmen and her team's analysis, the percentage of work orders that are out of window could be decreased from 62% to 5% within just one year.

Manufacturing Improvement

Joris Keizers (Veco)

Joris demonstrated how process mining has helped to cut the lead time of their core production process in half by unlocking relevant process knowledge of key employees who have less of a feeling for statistical methods.

Skills For Successful Process Scientists

Wil van der Aalst (RWTH Aachen)

The final speaker at Process Mining Camp 2018 was Wil van der Aalst, the founding father of process mining. In his closing keynote, Wil talked about the updated skill set that process and data scientists need today.

You can find more talks from all camps here.

Intensive Care ·Join one of our Hands-On Workshops

Workshops at Process Mining Camp 2019

This year’s Process Mining Camp will run for two days. After a full day of listening to practice talks and interacting with your peers, you can get your hands dirty and join one of our hands-on workshops on day two (17 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.

If one full day of talks is enough for you, that's of course more than fine. However, for those of you who 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!

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

RWTH Aachen, Germany

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 the founder of the KNVI Special Interest Group on Process Mining I endorse the sharing of knowledge across the process mining community. In my experience, ‘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 for conducting successful process mining projects.”

— Frank van Geffen

Rabobank & KNVI, 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

Suncorp, Australia

Primus inter pares ·Process Miner of the Year

Have you completed a successful process mining project in the past months that you are really proud of?

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 8 minute's walk. If you want to come by car, parking space is available nearby on the university campus.

  • 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?

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

In general, any hotel that is in walking distance to Eindhoven central station should be fine.

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. In 2017, we found our perfect third team member Rudi.

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 since then the 220 seats have quickly filled up each year, bringing process mining enthusiasts from hundreds of different companies and a total of 34 different countries to Eindhoven. Since 2017, Process Mining Camp has grown into a two-day event with the workshop seats selling out in just a couple of days.

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

We hope to see you at camp soon,

Yours truly

Process Mining Camp 2020 is supported by Eindhoven University of Technology,
the IEEE Task Force for Process Mining, and the Data Science Center Eindhoven.

Process Mining Camp 2020 is organized by Fluxicon.
