 +===== Abstract =====
 +Process mining aims at discovering new knowledge based on information hidden in event logs. Two
 +important enablers for such analysis are powerful process mining techniques and the omnipresence of
 +event logs in today'​s information systems. Most information systems supporting (structured) business
 +processes (e.g. ERP, CRM, and workflow systems) record events in some form (e.g. transaction logs,
 +audit trails, and database tables). Process mining techniques use event logs for all kinds of analysis,
 +e.g., auditing, performance analysis, process discovery, etc. Although current process mining
 +techniques/​tools are quite mature, the analysis they support is somewhat limited because it is purely
 +based on labels in logs. This means that these techniques cannot benefit from the actual semantics
 +behind these labels which could cater for more accurate and robust analysis techniques. Existing
 +analysis techniques are purely syntax oriented, i.e., much time is spent on filtering, translating,​
 +interpreting,​ and modifying event logs given a particular question. This paper presents the core
 +building blocks necessary to enable semantic process mining techniques/​tools. Although the approach
 +is highly generic, we focus on a particular process mining technique and show how this technique can
 +be extended and implemented in the ProM framework tool.
