Web services and BPM have become a combination research aiming at enterprise computing providing a more intelligent and interactive services as process aware systems. In particular, with the emergence of BPEL4WS as a de-facto industrial standard for process grounding technology, Web services become the building blocks for the final process execution. However, really combining those two topics is still very hard as different perspectives (business and technical). With the development of semantics, especially semantic Web services, researchers propose SBPM to bridge the gap between business and technical levels.
