[VK] I am not sure if I agree with the semantics of "is_location_of_process" as
above.

If you stick to the definition above, would propose that you rename the relation
as:

<A> <contains_all_participants_of_process> <B>

My definition of <is_location_of_process> is:
A <is_location_of_process> <B> if there exists some finite interval of time
Delta_T and at least two states (potentially idempotent) of the process <B>
State1 and State2, s.t.
The transition of <B> from State S1 to S2 during time Delta_T happens at
location <A>
