More and more people, both in industry and academia, consider process mining (see the promotional video for an introduction) as one of the most important innovations in the field of business process management. It joins ideas of process modeling and analysis on the one hand and data mining and machine learning on the other. Therefore, the IEEE has established a Task Force on Process Mining. This Task Force is established in the context of the Data Mining Technical Committee (DMTC) of the Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, Inc. (IEEE).

The goal of this Task Force is to promote the research, development, education and understanding of process mining. More concretely, the goal is to:

  • make end-users, developers, consultants, and researchers aware of the state-of-the-art in process mining,
  • promote the use of process mining techniques and tools and stimulating new applications,
  • play a role in standardization efforts for logging event data,
  • the organization of tutorials, special sessions, workshops, panels,
  • the organization of Conferences/Workshop with IEEE CIS Technical Co-Sponsorship, and
  • publications in the form of special issues in journals, books, articles (e.g., in the IEEE Computational Intelligence Magazine).

Note that process mining includes (automated) process discovery (extracting process models from an event log), conformance checking (monitoring deviations by comparing model and log), social network/organizational mining, automated construction of simulation models, case prediction, and history-based recommendations.

Process Discovery Contest of 2020 (PDC 2020) has started!

Do you think you have a good process discovery algorithm?

Then submit it to the Process Discovery Contest of 2020 (PDC 2020) as you can win one free registration for the ICPM 2020 conference in Padua, Italy this year.

If you submit your algorithm to the automated contest of the PDC 2020, and if your algorithm scores best on our data set of 192 training/test logs, then one free registration is yours! The automated contest has already started, and ends on August 17, 2020.

More information on the PDC 2020 (like what to submit, when to submit, and how to submit) can be found on the PDC 2020 webpage:

Josep Carmona, Benoît Depaire, and Eric Verbeek (organizers of the PDC 2020).
