Although information systems support a wide range of recreational and social activities, the pattern of users' behavior in such systems is not clear. We extend the process mining technology to work on common event logs that have no workflow cases reference, and name the new technology as behavior pattern mining. This paper gives out a brief survey on issues, challenges, approaches and related tools in behavior pattern mining area, and compares behavior pattern mining with workflow mining technology, which is the other sub field of process mining. To reply the problems proposed by behavior pattern mining, the process mining area gets its new motivation.
