Despite that many real-life contracts include time constraints, for instance explicitly specifying deadlines by when to perform actions, or for how long certain behaviour is prohibited, the literature formalising such notions is surprisingly sparse. Furthermore, one of the major challenges is that compliance is typically computed with respect to timed event traces with event timestamps assumed to be perfect. In this paper we present an approach for evaluating compliance under the effect of imperfect timing information, giving a semantics to analyse contract violation likelihood.
