ICPM Conference and COVID-19

International Conference on Process Mining to be held in person

After careful deliberation regarding to the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizing committee of the International Conference on Process Mining (ICPM) is delighted to confirm with certainty that the 3rd edition of ICPM will be held  in person at Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands from the October 31 till November 4, 2021.  

This year’s conference though, will be a little different than we are all used to. The safety of all of our guests and attendees is our top priority. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic recovery, it is necessary that we adhere to all local and state health and safety rules and regulations in order to host our event in a correct and safe way. We’ve updated this site based on the measures in effect from 25 September 2021.

Attendees travelling to The Netherlands will have to take care of the requirements for entering the EU. These can be found here. Read this information carefully as there are lots of exceptions and date-dependent clauses. 

Once you arrive in the Netherlands, proof of vaccination, recovery or a recent test is required for entering bars and restaurants. The Netherlands accepts the covid-19 app of several countries, a full list can be found here and currently this list includes all EU countries, Israel, Turkey, Morocco, Ukraine and several other non-EU member states and may be updated between now and November. Note that the UK, the US and Canada are currently not on the list. This is particularly important for those of you staying in hotels. Please contact your hotel in advance to check if they accept your proof as vaccination for access to their restaurant and bar.

The conference itself is hosted by the Eindhoven University of Technology. As this is an internal research event, different rules apply. We do not require proof of vaccination or recovery or recent tests. The TU/e campus is freely accessible without any restrictions. The conference’s social events are also hosted on campus and can be attended by all who registered. Note that bars in the city center will require proof of vaccination, recovery or a recent test from one of the accepted countries and they are only open until midnight, so I expect everybody to be fresh for the morning sessions. 

Although we hope to welcome as many of you in person, we fully understand that some of our guests cannot join due to (personal) COVID-19 circumstances. If you are an author of a paper, please make sure at least one author is registered for your paper. If you live in a country from which it is impossible to travel (for example Australia), please contact Ine van de Moosdijk for a discounted rate. We will make sure that the conference can be attended online, but possibilities for interaction will be limited. 

We are excited to meet all of you again and are proud to be able to welcome you back to ICPM. We would like to express our thanks to all of you and especially to our ICPM 2021 sponsors for having confidence in our organization and in the possibilities, despite the pandemic. We can confidently say that while it may be a little different this year, we are looking forward to an very interesting Conference and meeting you all again LIVE!

Q: I need to take a PCR test to travel back home. Where in Eindhoven can I take such a PCR test?

A: There is a test location at Emmasingel 33-35, called Stadskliniek, which is quite central. See below for a map and the location. You can google on PCR test Eindhoven, which will also show alternative locations.
