Similarity search is a general class of problems in which a given object, called a query object, is compared against a collection of objects in order to retrieve those that most closely resemble the query object. This paper reviews recent work on an instance of this class of problems, where the objects in question are business process models. The goal is to identify process models in a repository that most closely resemble a given process model or a fragment thereof.
