Call for Discovery Algorithms for PDC 2021

PDC 2021 is the 2021 edition of the Process Discovery Contest.

Do you believe you have implemented a good discovery algorithm? Then submit it to the PDC 2021 to put it to the test!

This test contains 480 event logs, for which a model needs to be discovered (training logs), and 96 event logs that need to be classified using the discovered models (test logs).

The 96 test logs are all generated from the same configurable model, which was inspired by a model discovered from a real-life event log and has the following configurable options:

  • Long-term dependencies: yes/no
  • Loops: no/simple/complex
    • A simple loop has a single point of entry and a single point of exit.

Call for Best Process Mining PhD Dissertation Award 2021

The IEEE Task Force for Process Mining is happy to announce the 2021 edition of the Best Process Mining PhD Dissertation Award.

The award will be delivered during the 3rd International Conference on Process Mining (ICPM 2021).


Eligible candidates are those who officially obtained a PhD degree defended in 2019 or 2020, with a dissertation focused on process mining. Those who applied for the 2020 edition of the prize, can reapply for the 2021 edition as well.

We welcome theses that contributed to advance the state of the art in the foundations, engineering, and on-field application of process mining techniques. Read more
