The research on Semantic Web services and processes has so far focused on specification discovery, and automated composition. Today, businesses focus on efficient ways to interact with the partners they already know and work with, and prefer to manually model their processes. However, there is emerging interests in businesses to begin exploring more dynamism in their business processes, to better reach to the changing environments and to make their process more adaptive/agile. This will require formal modeling of different aspects of Web services and processes especially modeling the non-functional aspects (Quality of service, Business rules, policies, constraints, etc.). This workshop will bring together research from various disciplines as well as industrial practitioners in exploring the role of semantics in creating dynamic Web processes. The workshop further the discussions started at an earlier workshop on Semantic and Dynamic Web Processes (SDWP).
