Artem Polyvyanyy
Artem Polyvyanyy is an Associate Professor at the School of Computing and Information Systems, Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology, at the University of Melbourne (Australia). He has a strong background in Theoretical Computer Science, Software Engineering, and Business Process Management from the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy (Ukraine), Hasso Plattner Institute (Germany), and the University of Potsdam (Germany). In March 2012, he received a Ph.D. degree (Dr. rer. nat.) in the scientific discipline of Computer Science from the University of Potsdam (Germany). His research and teaching interests include Computing Systems, Distributed Systems, Process Mining, Process Querying, Artificial Intelligence, and Algorithms. Artem Polyvyanyy has published over 110 academic manuscripts, including book chapters, peer-reviewed journal articles, and refereed papers at international conferences. He has actively contributed to open-source initiatives significantly impacting research and practice, including jBPT and Oryx. His recent research focuses on Process Mining and Process Querying. The research discipline of Process Mining combines studies of inferences from data in Data Mining and Machine Learning with Process Modeling and Analysis to tackle the problems of discovering, monitoring, and improving real-world processes. Process Querying combines concepts from Big Data and Process Modeling and Analysis with Business Process Intelligence and Process Analytics to study techniques for retrieving and manipulating models of real-world and envisioned processes to organize and extract process-related information for subsequent systematic use.

Artem Polyvyanyy is a member of the Steering Committee of the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining. You can read his academic story published in one of the newsletters of the task force here. He is the editor of and a contributor to the book entitled “Process Querying Methods.” Artem is the coordinator of the Master of Information Technology course at the University of Melbourne.


Artem Polyvyanyy co-supervises/co-supervised 1 PostDoc and 6 PhD students, including 1 PhD student to completion. He is looking for talented and motivated candidates to perform PostDoc and PhD projects under his supervision in the research areas of process mining, process querying, and artificial intelligence. Please get in contact for more information on available projects and scholarships.
