Semantic Business Process Modeling

Application of ontology-based semantics to the modelling and transformation between business-oriented notations for processes and organisations and executable processes taking advantage of semantic extensions to service-oriented architecture.

Abstract

The SUPER project's approach to the emerging area of Semantic BPM concerns the application of ontology-based semantics to the modelling and transformation between business-oriented notations for processes and organisations and executable processes taking advantage of semantic extensions to service-oriented architecture. This talk will concentrate on the Business Process Modelling Ontology (BPMO), the semantically extended form of BPEL, BPEL4SWS, and ontology-based reasoning and transformations associated with these ontologies.
