The Industry Day serves as a forum to exchange experiences and foster networking within the international process mining community. The target audience includes business analysts, process managers, chief information officers, chief operations officers, digital transformation managers, project managers, process consultants, industry researchers, and related service providers.
The forum focuses on cutting edge real-world experiences in leveraging process mining for achieving operational excellence and driving innovation within an organization. We welcome contributions from any industry sector as well as from the public sector.
The format of the Industry Day talks will be structured to be highly interactive and discussion oriented, with the talks being a stimulus for initiating a conversation on a topic and exchanging experiences. The conference organizers are pleased to cover the costs of traveling and accommodation for the speakers (one speaker per presentation).
If you are interested in presenting at the Industry Day, please submit a proposal for a talk, of up to two pages long. We seek to receive contributions from practitioners. If a proposal has multiple authors, each team must include at least one practitioner from an end-user organization.
Proposals should have the following structure:
- Organizational context
- Business challenges faced
- Solution adopted
- What was done?
- What process mining techniques were employed (automated discovery, performance mining, conformance checking, variant analysis, predictive/prescriptive monitoring etc.)?
- What software tools were used? (see paragraph later)
- What were the results? It is important to show concrete process mining results, i.e., process models, bottlenecks, compliance problems, etc. (these may of course be anonymized or changed to hide sensitive information)
- Benefits and lessons learned. Preferably, these benefits should be quantified as client or organizational value, rather than being generic statements (e.g. “higher efficiency” or “better compliance”)
- Focus should be put on the description of practical experiences from an end-user viewpoint, and lessons learned.
- Proposals should not be used as an opportunity to promote (commercial) software tools. The presenter can mention the tool used and show screenshots if required, but this should be intended as a means to aid the illustration of the application case, rather than as an expedient to promote a specific tool, let alone to compare it with other tools.
Please submit your proposal in PDF to the Industry Day Chairs (Marc Kerremans and Marcello La Rosa) at these email addresses: Marc.Kerremans@gartner.com and email@example.com.
Each proposal will be evaluated according to the interest and relevance of the problem/use case being presented, the ease for transferring the solution adopted to other contexts or similar scenarios, and the presentation clarity. Candidates may be invited to provide more information about the case in an online video call.
