Wil van der Aalst at Process Mining Camp 2012

Watch Wil van der Aalst at Process Mining Camp 2012

The time has come to conclude our Process Mining Camp 2012 talk series with the Research Notes talk by Wil van der Aalst. Wil has started the area of process mining research more than a decade ago, and has been a defining force and spiritus rector of the movement since back then. As the most-cited computer scientist in the Netherlands, Wil has also founded the prolific BPM Conference, heads the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining, and has had a wide influence on industry and standard committees.

I have always enjoyed Wil’s presentations, since he has the rare talent to present in an approachable and entertaining fashion without sacrificing facts and rigor, and this presentation is no exception. Wil shares his vision and guiding principles for process mining research, from desire lines and cowpaths to building navigation systems for running a business. Giving a detailed overview of the different process mining research initiatives in his research group, and how they fit together into his larger vision for the future of this discipline, Wil’s talk is also an excellent sneak peek of what to expect from process mining in the years to come.

While this will be the last talk from this year’s batch, we are definitely planning to continue this tradition. Keep an eye on this blog, or follow us on Twitter, if you don’t want to miss the next edition! And in some sense we have definitely saved the best for last, so don’t hesitate and go watch Wil’s talk right now!
