 +===== 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 have developed techniques
 +for (re)discovering workflow models. Starting point for such techniques
 +are so-called "​workflow logs" containing information about the workflow
 +process as it is actually being executed. Unfortunately,​ it is not possible
 +to (re)discover every workflow process. In this paper we explore the class
 +of workflow processes which can be discovered. The theoretical results
 +presented in this paper demonstrate that most practical workflow processes
 +fit into this class. The tool //MiMo//, also presented in this paper,
 +supports the (re)discovery of these processes.
