The notion of event-driven process chains (EPC) is widely used to model processes. It is an ongoing discussion of how to reach executable workflows from EPCs.

This paper discusses different possible event types and their semantics. Furthermore, it presents a transformation of the introduced event types to workflow constructs respecting the semantics of each event.
