The Semantic Web envisions a distributed environment with well-defined data that can be understood and used by ma- chines. This machine-understandable knowledge allows in- telligent agents to automatically take decisions and perform tasks on our behalf. In the past, different Semantic Web pol- icy languages have been developed as a powerful means to describe a system’s behavior by defining statements about how the system must behave under certain conditions. With the growing dynamics of the Semantic Web the need for a reactive control based on changing and evolving situations arises. This paper presents preliminary results towards a framework for the specification and enforcement of reactive Semantic Web policies, which can be used in order to al- low agents to automatically perform advanced and powerful tasks, which can neither be addressed by existing Semantic Web policy languages nor by recent efforts towards reactiv- ity on the Semantic Web.
