He previously gave lectures at the University of Madeira (Portugal), the University of Georgia (USA) and at the Instituto Politécnico de Leiria (Portugal). He has worked at the Boeing Company (USA) on enterprise application integration and at CCG, Zentrum für Graphische Datenverarbeitung on Computer Supported Cooperative Work systems. He has published over 90 refereed papers in the areas of workflow management systems, semantic Web, and related fields. He has edited several books, and organized several international conferences on Semantics and Information Systems.

Wil van der Aalst is a full professor of Information Systems at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e) having a position in both the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Department of Technology Management. Currently he is also an adjunct professor at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) working within the BPM group there. His research interests include workflow management, process mining, Petri nets, business process management, process modeling, and process analysis. Wil van der Aalst has published more than 100 journal papers, 13 books (as author or editor), 200 refereed conference/workshop publications, and 30 book chapters. Many of his papers are highly cited (he has an H-index of more than 55 according to Google Scholar) and his ideas have influenced researchers, software developers, and standardization committees working on process support. He has been a co-chair of many conferences including the Business Process Management conference, the International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems, the International conference on the Application and Theory of Petri Nets, and the IEEE International Conference on Services Computing. He is also editor/member of the editorial board of several journals, including the Business Process Management Journal, the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management, the International Journal on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures, Computers in Industry, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing, and Transactions on Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency.
