WfMC, which is one of the international standardization organizations leading the business process and workflow technologies, has been officially released the BPAF1.0 that is a standard format to record process instances' event logs according as the business process intelligence mining technologies have recently issued in the business process and workflow literature. The business process mining technologies consist of two groups of algorithms and their analysis techniques; one is to rediscover flow-oriented process-intelligence, such as control-flow, data-flow, role-flow, and actor-flow intelligence, from process instances' event logs, and the other has something to do with rediscovering relation-oriented process-intelligence like process-driven social networks and process-driven affiliation networks from the event logs. The current standardized format of BPAF1.0 aims at only supporting the control-flow oriented process-intelligence mining techniques, and so it is unable to properly support the relation-oriented process-intelligence mining techniques. Therefore, this paper tries to extend the BPAF1.0 so as to reasonably support the relation-oriented process-intelligence mining techniques, and the extended BPAF is termed BPAF2.0. Particularly, we have a plan to standardize the extended BPAF2.0 as not only the national standard specifications through the e-Business project group of TTA, but also the international standard specifications of WfMC.
