The Handbook

The Process Mining Handbook is the book that will accompany the lectures at the Process Mining Summer School in Aachen. The recent and very fast development of the field, both academically and in commercial and industrial applications, highlighted the need for a new summary of the state of the art of the numerous different disciplines that compose process mining. The Process Mining Handbook aims to offer a clear image of the process mining techniques of today, and to set the path forward for the innovations in process sciences of the 2030s. It follows a sequence of milestones in the discipline, beginning with the foundation of the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining, the establishment of the XES standard, the publication of the Process Mining Manifesto, and the creation of the International Conference on Process Mining (ICPM) series.

The book is co-authored, among others, by the speakers of the Summer School. It is published by Springer, in the book series Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing (LNBIP). It is available in open access here:
