Time to join the balloting group for the XES standard

We are completing the standardisation process for XES (IEEE 1849), the second standard sponsored by IEEE CIS. At this time, it is necessary that people from our community vote about the approval of this standard. As a consequence, I would like to ask you if you are interested in acting as voter.

First round for XES micro extension proposal

On October 26, 2015, the first round for the XES micro extension proposal has started. The planning for this proposal is as follows:

October 26 - November 8 First round for comments
November 9 - November 22 Second round for comments
November 23 - December 6 Round for approval

If approved, the micro extension will be added to the then-current XES Standard Proposal, which will then be send to the IEEE CIS for ballot.

Second internal round in the XES standardization process

A second internal draft for the XES Standard Proposal is ready. In October, there will be the last internal round for comments on this proposal. In November, there will be an internal round for approval of the Proposal. The resulting internal Proposal will then be promoted to the first external Proposal, which will be submitted to the IEEE CIS in December.

Best Process Mining Dissertation Award for Jorge Munoz-Gama

The Best Process Mining Dissertation Award is a yearly award conferred by the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining to the author of an outstanding PhD thesis on business process intelligence. The winner of the second edition was announced during the task force's meeting. The award won by Jorge Munoz-Gama for this PhD thesis entitled “Conformance Checking and Diagnosis in Process Mining”. The award was handed out by Marcello La Rosa. Jorge also gave a presentation summarizing his work. He received 1000 euro and will be invited to publish a book based on his thesis by Springer.

BPIC’15 Award for Ube van der Ham

The Fifth International Business Process Intelligence Challenge (BPIC’15) was won by Ube van der Ham of Meijer & Van der Ham Management Consultants. This year’s data was provided by five Dutch municipalities over a period of approximately four years. Participants are invited to analyze these data using whatever techniques available, focusing on one or more of the process owner's questions or proving other unique insights into the process captured in the event log.

BPIC’15 Student Award for Anna Leontyeva, Karl-Oskar Masing and Irene Teinemaa

The student team from Software Engineering Group of University of Tartu won the challenge based on the same data set provided by five Dutch municipalities. The award was handed out by Boudewijn van Dongen.

Process Mining Reception sponsored by the IEEE Task Force in Innsbruck

About 60 process mining enthusiasts joined the Process Mining Reception on Sunday August 30th 2015 at the Adlers Hotel in Innsbruck. It was a good opportunity to discuss process mining related topics in an informal setting.

Massive Open Online Course: "Process Mining: Data science in Action" attracts over 65.000 participants

The first run of the Massive Open Online Course: “Process Mining: Data science in Action” attracted 44.000 participants. Given the huge interest it was repeated soon after the first run and still attracted 25.000 registered participants. The course will run again at the end of the year (starting October 7th 2015). Again tens of thousands of participants are expected. These numbers indicate the steadily growing interest in process mining.
