Abstract: A methodology is introduced for defining truly concurrent semantics of processes as equivalence classes of Labelled Event Structures (LES). The construction of a LES consists of three steps. First, systems are decomposed into sets of sequential processes and a set of rewriting rules is introduced which describe both the actions sequential processes may perform and their causal relation. Then, the rewriting rules are used to build an occurrence net. Finally, the required event structure is easily derived from the occurrence net.
