Process Mining Camp 2013 — Expedition Workshops

Process Mining Camp 2013

We have finally finished the program for Process Mining Camp, and we are happy to tell you that we have found yet another great practice speaker: Philipp Horn from Volkswagen, Germany! This brings the total tally up to six practice talks – more than three hours of tales from the frontier, from experienced process mining pioneers who live there.

If you have not signed up for camp already, check out the program and sign up now! We have less than 15 seats left, so if you have considered coming we strongly advise you to make your move quickly.

The expedition workshops

The expedition workshops are our little experiment at this year’s camp, and we are really excited about them. Most likely when you hear ‘workshop’, you think of some sort of miniature conference with presentations or exercises – which is quite a different thing than what we have in mind. So, let us explain a bit more about what you can expect.

The initial trigger for the workshops was feedback we received from many people at last year’s camp. They told us how much they loved meeting other process miners, and exchanging their experiences in small, informal groups over coffee and drinks. Especially those campers who were lucky to run into others that shared their same interests or background1 were enthusiastic about their encounters.

The expedition workshops are designed to make sure that every attendee at this year’s camp will have that experience. Each workshop has a maximum of 10 participants2. We are going to ask all attendees to pick their top 3 workshops, and then we will try to match them into groups they are most interested in.

But even more important than that is that we will keep the setting informal: There are no specific rooms, no beamers, and such. Every workshop group will gather, and then find a place in the Zwarte Doos caf or outside3 to settle down for their discussion.

So, please don’t expect a presentation by your workshop host, we specifically asked them to not prepare one. We did, however, make sure that you will have an exceptionally qualified expedition leader in your group to kick off the discussion, and to provide an informed point of view.

Just have a look at this amazing list of process mining experts who will host a workshop at camp:

Regardless of which expedition workshop you are going to attend, you will be in great company. You will get the chance to really connect to your expedition host and the other campers in your group, and get direct access to their vast experience. Dive deep into your favorite process mining topic, participate in a relaxed and open discussion, and make new friends!

Sign up to camp now to choose your three favorite workshop topics.

  1. Like healthcare or auditing. ↩︎

  2. We will try to keep the workshops even smaller, maybe around 5 – 7 participants. ↩︎

  3. If the weather is nice, of course. ↩︎

  4. A quote from the awards ceremony. ↩︎
