The IEEE Task Force on Process Mining was established in October 2009 as part of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. The set of activities and members has expanded over the last decade, leading not only to the International Process Mining Conference (ICPM) series and successful workshops (BPI, ATAED, PODS4H, etc.), but also the Process Mining Manifesto (translated into 16 languages), the XES standard, publically available datasets, online courses, case studies, etc. Currently, there are over 30 process mining vendors and thousands of organizations successfully using process mining.
The goals of the task force (formulated in 2009) include:
- promote the research, development, education and understanding of process mining,
- make end-users, developers, consultants, and researchers aware of the state-of-the-art in process mining,
- promote the use of process mining techniques and tools and stimulate new applications,
- play a role in standardization efforts for logging event data (e.g., XES),
- organize tutorials, special sessions, workshops, competitions, panels, and
- develop material (papers, books, online courses, movies, etc.) to inform and guide people new to the field.
