—Process mining techniques have recently received notable attention in the literature for their ability to assist in the (re)design of complex processes by automatically discovering models that explain the events registered in some log traces provided as input. Following this line of research, the paper investigates an extension of such basic approaches,(More)
A manifesto is a "public declaration of principles and intentions" by a group of people. This manifesto is written by members and supporters of the IEEE Task Force on Process Mining. The goal of this task force is to promote the research, development, education, implementation, evolution, and understanding of process mining. Process mining is a relatively(More)
In this paper we propose a technique for detecting the similarity in the structure of XML documents. The technique is based on the idea of representing the structure of an XML document as a time series in which each occurrence of a tag corresponds to a given impulse. By analyzing the frequencies of the corresponding Fourier transform, we can hence state the(More)
We propose a general framework for the process mining problem which encompasses the assumption of workflow schema with local constraints only, for it being applicable to more expressive specification languages, independently of the particular syntax adopted. In fact, we provide an effective technique for process mining based on the rather unexplored concept(More)
Process mining techniques have been receiving great attention in the literature for their ability to automatically support process (re)design. The output of these techniques is a concrete workflow schema that models all the possible execution scenarios registered in the logs, and that can be profitably used to support further-coming enactments. In this(More)
Designing, analyzing and managing complex processes are recently become crucial issues in most application contexts, such as e-commerce, business process (re-)engineering, Web/grid computing. In this paper, we propose a framework that supports the designer in the definition and in the analysis of complex processes by means of several facilities for reusing,(More)
A research organization is a complex system consisting of various kinds of components and actors with a high level of cooperation. Collaborative work takes place through both formalized groups (such as sections, internal committees, research groups, project groups) and informal groups (i.e., communities of practice) that may arise around common problems,(More)
