This paper presents a conceptual mapping framework between a formal and visual process modelling language, Fundamental Business Process Modelling Language (FBPML), and the Web Services Ontology (OWL-S), aiming to bridge the gap between Enterprise Modelling methods and Semantic Web services. The framework is divided into a data model and a process model component. An implementation and an evaluation of the process model mapping are demonstrated.
