This tutorial explains and demonstrates how the introduction of Semantic Web Services (SWS) to process aware software systems and to Business Process Management (BPM) in general can eliminate the deficiencies that current BPM technology exhibits. The tutorial starts with a thorough discussion of the underlying concepts, Service Oriented Architectures, ontologies, business process management systems and its relevance for today's system developers. The tutorial will further present the state of the art of current process management systems and Semantic Web Service frameworks. It will motivate the need for explicit use of Semantics to overcome the current weaknesses in BPM, and present a consolidated technical framework that integrates SWS into BPM technology. The first session will cover the foundations and theoretical aspects, while the second session will be dedicated to a software demonstration and a hands-on session wherein the attendees actively model Business Processes and Semantic Web Services with the respective software tools. Therewith attendees will gain a comprehensive overview of the latest developments in semantically enriched BPM technology, which is one of the central trends in BPM research and development. The tutorial will be held by BPM and SWS experts that actively work on integration of both technologies.
