 +===== Abstract =====
 +Contemporary workflow management systems are driven by explicit process models,
 +i.e., a completely specified workflow design is required in order to enact a given
 +workflow process. Creating a workflow design is a complicated time-consuming
 +process and typically there are discrepancies between the actual workflow processes
 +and the processes as perceived by the management. Therefore, we propose a technique
 +for process mining. This technique uses workflow logs to discover the workflow
 +process as it is actually being executed. The process mining technique proposed in this
 +paper can deal with noise and can also be used to validate workflow processes by
 +uncovering and measuring the discrepancies between prescriptive models and actual
 +process executions.
