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 will meet people who face the same challenges as you, and exchange experiences. Campers are 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.
Join one of our discussion roundtables and go deeper on various process mining topics. The discussion groups will be small so that you meet and get to know everyone in your group.
Dive into process mining for a whole day, 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 first 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.
Every year, hundreds of process miners from all over the world have come together in Eindhoven. Some have joined us from places as far away as Australia, Korea, Brasil, the USA, and Japan. For the last two years, we took to the internet for digital summer camps. Come and join us back at our Eindhoven campground this year!
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.

In the clinical trial phase of a new medicine or vaccine, blood samples and other samples are collected from the people participating in the clinical trial. Overall, GSK manages millions of samples that go through hundreds of process steps in its Human Biological Sample Management (HBSM) process. It is vital to complete the HBSM process as quickly as possible while maintaining quality requirements.
Maxime Parres-Albert is a senior tech engineer, and Maxime Brochier is a business innovation lead at GSK. Using process mining on clinical operations data, they were able to map the HBSM process and identify bottlenecks and best practices. At camp, they will share the data transformations they had to make and give tips for organizing change management.
In the afternoon, we get interactive — Join us for a discussion roundtable and connect to the community on a deeper level.
In small groups of up to eight people, you will talk about process mining topics such as customer journeys, auditing, Lean Six Sigma, the business case for process mining, data transformations, and security, privacy and ethics.
The goal is not to solve all the world's problems but to share openly and learn from each other. In the interaction with other process miners who have similar backgrounds as you, you can discuss challenges and ideas that deserve further attention.
At the end of the roundtable, each group will share their main insights with the rest of the community, so that we can all benefit.
For the very first time at camp, Rudi and Anne will run a process mining clinic. Do you have a data set that defies all your efforts? Questions that you always wanted to get answered? Process mining problems that leave you scratching your head?
Bring your laptop and show them to us! We will unpack the issue together and dig into our experiences to give you expert advice.
The clinic will be available during all the breaks as well as in parallel to the discussion roundtables.
“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.”

“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
Here are some of our favorite talks from the previous camps. Kick back, and find out for yourself what all the fuzz is about!
You can find more talks from all camps here.
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 want to do everything to make this camp a relaxed and safe experience for all of us.
The practice talks will be presented in a large, well-ventilated room with lots of space. We will provide masks, and we will all be wearing them indoors. All the breaks, lunch, dinner, and coffee will be outside. Many parts of the camp program will also take place outdoors. So, you can breathe fresh air while conversing with your fellow process miners.
If you feel sick or have tested positive, please stay at home and do not come. We will of course refund your camp ticket.
We want everybody to feel safe and comfortable at camp. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to let us know at email@example.com.
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. 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. Since 2015, we moved to the auditorium to make more room, bringing process mining enthusiasts from hundreds of different companies and a total of 34 different countries to Eindhoven. In the last two years, we got together from all around the world for an all-online camp, which was very special and exciting in its own right.
This year, we are back to meeting up in person, albeit on a smaller scale to keep it safe. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you at camp soon,
Process Mining Camp 2022 is organized by Fluxicon.
