 +===== Abstract =====
 +Process mining has emerged as a way to discover or check the conformance of processes based on event logs.
 +This enables organizations to learn from processes as they really take place.
 +Since web services are distributed over autonomous parties, it is vital to monitor the correct
 +execution of processes. Fortunately,​ the "web services stack" assists in collecting
 +structured event logs. This information can be used to extract new information about
 +service processes (e.g., bottlenecks,​ unused paths, etc.) and to check the
 +conformance (e.g., deviations from some predefined process).
 +In this paper, we illustrate the potential of process mining in the context of web services.
 +In particular, we show what a process mining tool like ProM can contribute
 +in IBM's WebSphere environment.
