Today, we learned that Xixi Lu won the 2nd place for the Process Mining Thesis Award 2017! As a result, Xixi won herself a 4-days Celonis Data Scientist Training.

Congratulations, Xixi!

PhD Defense Sander Leemans

On Tuesday May 9th, 2017, Sander Leemans successfully defended his PhD Thesis titled "Robust Process Mining with Guarantees".

As a result, Felix Mannhardt is now the next PhD student to defend his thesis. The image below shows the transfer of the trophy that goes with that honour: A rubber duck holding a sign “I'm next”.

Press release: The XES Standard for Exchanging Event Logs Approved by IEEE SA

By Wil van der Aalst and Eric Verbeek
November 24, 2016

Eindhoven, The Netherlands – On November 11th, 2016, the IEEE Standards Association has officially published the XES Standard as IEEE Std 1849TM-2016: IEEE Standard for eXtensible Event Stream (XES) for Achieving Interopability in Event Logs and Event Streams. The IEEE Task Force on Process Mining has been driving the standardization process for over six years, because the standard allows for the exchange of event data between different process mining tools.

Through the XES Standard, event data can be transported from the location where it was generated to the location where it can be stored and analyzed, without losing semantics. The XES Standard enforces that this transport and storage is done in a standardized way, that is, in a way that is clear and well-understood. Next to providing a standardized syntax and semantics, the XES Standard also allows for extensions, e.g., adding cost information or domain specific attributes to events.
