Break at Process Mining Camp 2018

You are not exactly new to process mining. Maybe you have just finished your first big project, or you have been applying process mining all over your organization for years. Where do you go from here, and how can you improve your skill set? This year's Process Mining Camp is designed to answer these questions.

Process mining is not a product that you can buy off the shelf. Its value comes from how it is applied in practice, by you, the process miner. For us, process mining is a craft, one that we all shape and create together every day. We need to hone our skills, invest time and effort into improving our practice, and expand the body of knowledge by sharing with other process mining professionals. At this year's process mining camp, you will immerse yourself in the community for two intense days of sharing and exchanging knowledge with your fellow process miners.

Our practice talks feature selected process mining professionals who are sharing their stories, their findings, and their experience on the stage. Highly condensed and distilled to the essence, these talks always spark interesting questions and conversations, and set the mood for camp.

Following the talks, you will get to know your fellow process miners in small, highly interactive discussion groups. Discuss the problems and questions that you share, exchange the experiences you made, and explore the possibilities that you have discovered. You will expand your knowledge and get inspiration from the stories you hear. But you will also make lasting connections, and leave the day with new friends in the community.

On the second day of camp, we are going to get our hands dirty in three intense workshops. By working on concrete, realistic scenarios, you are going to deepen your knowledge, and expand your skillset, in the fields of data preparation, discovery and analysis, and best practices. Wherever you are in your process mining journey, this day will give you a boost of fresh ideas and new techniques for your daily practice.

Break at Process Mining Camp 2018
Break at Process Mining Camp 2018

This year's Process Mining Camp is tailored to process mining experts, and to those that are on their way there. No self-appointed gurus with wise words, but driven professionals who are eager to advance their knowledge and skill set. It is most of all for those who want to share with, learn from, and connect with their fellow process miners as peers.

In order to make this exchange as open as possible, we need to keep this year's camp small and intimate. We want you to be able to get to know all the other campers, and have meaningful connections and experiences. Be part of a select group of process miners who want to go above and beyond, meet the core of the process mining community, and come join us at this year's Process Mining Camp!

Tales from the frontier ·Talks you will remember

Practice talks are essential to 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 condensed and no-nonsense, followed by a frank and open discussion with and among the audience. Camp talks are not a one-way street, but we all want to learn from each other.

We are currently busy working on the program of this year's camp with a number of great speakers. They will be covering topics from process improvement, over auditing, up to process owners analyzing their own processes.

Sign up to the camp mailing list, and we will let you know as soon as the program is finalized.

Get to know your fellow process miners ·Roundtables

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 primarily to find solutions, 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 whole community. Afterwards, we take the discussion into more informal terrain, over a relaxed dinner and drinks.

We will then pick up the topics that you focused on in the roundtables, the challenges you raised and the ideas you discussed, to inform and guide our workshops on the second day.

Work It ·Join our Hands-On Workshops

Process mining is an art more than it is a technology. To become an expert, you need to try new approaches, stumble, get back up, and learn from the experience.

There is no fixed sequence of steps you go through. But there are patterns, things an experienced process miner looks out for when they are faced with a new data set. Our workshops are designed to lead you through this experience of applying process mining, recognizing road blocks, and resolving them.

On the second day of camp you are going to attend three workshops. Each of them focuses on a particular aspect of process mining, and they fit together perfectly to give you the complete picture.

Workshop 1 ·Discovery and Analysis

Anne RozinatFluxicon

There is a certain magic in watching an experienced process miner approach a new data set. While they apply standard practices like identifying incomplete cases, they also follow their intuition and explore layers of the process in an iteration of discovery, questions, and analysis cycles.

Sure, it takes domain knowledge to identify the standard process and its deviations. But it is also a question of experience to know what to look out for, which questions to ask, and how to break up the "spaghetti processes" — even if you are not familiar with the process at all.

In this workshop, you are going to practice on a real-life data set. Together, we will discover and analyze this data set in multiple phases. We show you standard practices and discuss the results in each phase before going further. There will be time to apply the same approach to multiple data sets, and you can even bring your own data, if you like!

Workshop 2 ·Data Skills

Rudi NiksFluxicon

It is important to accept that your process mining data will not be perfect when you start analyzing it. After all, the vast majority of IT systems were not created with process mining in mind. Recognizing these limitations should not discourage you. Instead, embrace it as an opportunity for getting creative! Learn to navigate the available data and its possibilities.

In this workshop, you are going beyond the fundamentals of process mining, typically centered around case IDs, timestamps, and activity logs. More than just talking about these concepts, you are going to experience them together to gain a better understanding of the associated challenges and explore potential remedies.

To achieve this, you will immerse yourself in a practical case. In multiple steps, you will identify and address issues like faulty and missing data. You will explore techniques for combining event logs from different systems. And you will be stretching the boundaries of the data beyond their original design. We'll also be discussing what the logs of the future might look like, and what steps you can take today to achieve that vision.

Workshop 3 ·Organizational Best Practices

Anne RozinatFluxicon

Rudi NiksFluxicon

How do you translate process mining insights into changes in your organization? How do you make sure that the improvements stick? And how do you develop your process mining projects into a routine and general practice? The challenges for process mining are not only about technical skills. You also need to take strategic and cultural factors into account.

There is no simple recipe for what makes process mining successful. But there are a lot of different lessons that can be derived from both successes and from setbacks. By now, we have all been talking about these challenges and our experiences for two days — in the discussion groups, over dinner and drinks, in the breaks, during the workshops. In this last workshop, we take a step back and collect what we have learned.

Together, we are going to make this really practical. We will list what works, what doesn't work and in which situation — and we put it into perspective. You will leave camp with new approaches and patterns that you can apply right away in your future process mining projects.

Hit the ground running ·Boot Camp

Are you completely new to process mining? Then we recommend you to join the pre-training boot camp. You will get a crash course on what process mining is all about, so that you can follow the discussions and workshops during the two days.

The boot camp consists of two sessions. The first session takes place online, one week before camp. The second session takes place on Thursday morning, just before camp starts.

You will learn:

  • Introduction and positioning: We will keep the introduction short and focus on how process mining fits into existing process improvement methodologies. We will also look at how process mining is different from other methods and what it is not, so that you can clearly place it in your head.
  • Guided hands-on session: Then, we will dive into the first hands-on session. Together, we will go through a typical process mining scenario, step by step. You will learn how to import data, and how to perform your first process mining analysis.
  • Simplification strategies for complex processes: One of the first challenges that you will encounter in your own process mining projects is that the discovered process maps can become very complicated. You will learn ten strategies for how to deal with this complexity, based on concrete examples.
  • Hands-on exercises: You will start practicing with two exercises, where you will work on real data sets by yourself. We will discuss your solutions in the group and talk about the different use cases for process mining.

During the boot camp, you will learn everything that you need to know to join the camp as a greenhorn. You will be able to follow the discussions, and to apply process mining in practical scenarios, during your camp experience and after.

We only have a limited number of seats available for the boot camp. Sign up now, and make sure you don't miss this opportunity!

“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, afterward, 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 organizational culture and obtaining and preparing process data.”

— Mitchell Cunningham

Campsite ·Zwarte Doos

Zwarte Doos

An event like Process Mining Camp deserves an appropriate venue. The Zwarte Doos is a modern building situated in a scenic part of the TU Eindhoven campus.

Next to housing a Grand Cafe, the Zwarte Doos also serves as the university cinema, with a large and modern screening room. It is close to a small lake, so you can also share a coffee with your fellow campers outside if the weather's nice.

Celebrate two full days of process mining, only a few meters from where this technology was invented. All talks and workshops will be at the Zwarte Doos, and during our breaks we will also have food and drinks right there.

The Zwarte Doos is located in the very south-western corner of the TU Eindhoven campus, and it can be reached from Eindhoven Central train station by a six 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 Zwarte Doos is on your right, about 50 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 next to the Zwarte Doos. You may want to print the campus map here. Try to park at P1, if you can. Parking on the campus is €7,50 per day (paid in cash, or by debit card).

Your Hosts For the Day

We are Anne, Christian, and Rudi from Fluxicon, and we love process mining. After finishing our PhDs with Wil van der Aalst in Eindhoven, Anne and Christian 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 build and grow a worldwide process mining community, and to bring this community closer together. In 2017, we found our perfect third team member Rudi.

For us, Process Mining Camp is that dream come to life. Once a year, 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. Since then, we have hosted an ever-growing community of campers in Eindhoven every year. We have experimented with different types of workshops, and we took the camp fully online in 2020, but at its core, camp has always remained the same: A place for process mining enthusiasts to meet, learn from each other, and to shape the future.

This year, we really want to kick things up a notch. We want to make more time for camp, so that we can go deeper, learn more, and really get to know each other. This year's program more interactive and hands-on than ever, so that you can get even more value from your experience.

We think that this year's camp will be really special, and we cannot wait to meet you in Eindhoven! If there is anything we can help you with preparing for camp, just shoot us an email at

We hope to see you at camp soon,

Yours truly

Process Mining Camp 2024 is organized by Fluxicon.
