After over 10 years of research, process mining has shown to be a rapidly growing discipline. This is testified by an established research community, publications in top conference and journals, over 30 commercial process mining vendors, and the thousands of organizations already applying process mining.
This has justified the establishment of the International Conference on Process Mining (ICPM), which is entirely devoted to the field under the auspices of the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining.
After the success of the first edition of ICPM 2019 in Aachen, the second edition will be organized by University of Padua, Italy. University of Padua is the second oldest university in Italy, founded in 1222 by scholars and professors after leaving Bologna. This makes the second oldest university in Italy and the fifth oldest university still in activity in the world. As per 2017, the university counts around 60000 students. According to the The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2019, Padua is the second best university in Italy, among those with more than 1000 students.
ICPM 2020 will take place in the beautiful scenery of the Botanic Garden, a UNESCO World Heritage and the oldest university garden in the world, founded in 1545. Thought leaders working on process mining will be present. The conference is supported by the leading vendors in process mining. However, the conference is neutral and provides insights that are tool independent.It will feature a diversified program, including exciting scientific talks, tool demonstrations, contests, and awards. Workshops on emerging topics and an industry day of excellent speakers will complement the program.
