Proceedings of the International Workshop in Dynamic Web Processes (DWP 2005)

These proceedings contain the papers accepted for presentation at the 1st International Conference on DynamicWeb Processes, DWP 2005, held at Amsterdam, the Netherlands, December 12, 2005 in conjunction with the Third International Conference on Service-Oriented Computing (ICSOC 2005).

This workshop intends to bring together researchers from various disciplines as well as industrial practitioners to explore the role of semantics in creating dynamic Web processes. As businesses transition to service oriented architectures, there is an emerging interest in businesses to begin exploring more dynamism in their business processes, to better react to the changing environments and to make their process more adaptive/agile.

The emphasis of this workshop in mainly on the following three topics - 1) formal modeling of di erent aspects of dynamism in Web processes, 2) execution environments for supporting dynamic and agile Web processes and 3) real world use cases that show the need for creating such models and environments.

The 8 research papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 13 submissions. This workshop also includes a panel entitled - ”Semantic Web Services: Past, Present, and Future”. John Domingue (Open University, UK), Amit Sheth (LSDIS Lab, University of Georgia, USA), Sheila McIlraith (University of Toronto, Canada) and Massimo Paolucci (NTT DoCoMo Euro Labs, Germany) will participate. The moderator of the panel is Michael Maxmilian from IBM Research, Almaden.

We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all authors for their high quality submissions.We would also like to thank all the members of the program committee for reviewing the papers. Special thanks also go to ICSOC workshop chairs - Frank Leymann and Winfried Lamersdorf and ICSOC general chairs - Francisco Curbera and Mike Papazoglou for their kind help and support in organizing the workshop.
