    Recent trends in software system development point to the growing importance of behaviour modelling.

    These trends are:
    -The growing role of business process management and workflow;
    - The growing importance of Service-Orientation as an architectural principle, with consequent emphasis on well defined interaction between software components;
    - The importance of interfaces, contracts and service level agreements in defining and managing of behaviour integration both within and across organizational boundaries;
    - The growing variety of business intelligence applications and their increasing complex behavioural requirements.

    To meet the challenges presented by these trends we must be able to determine which behaviour modelling techniques are applicable to a given situation, and be able to use multiple techniques in combination. This requires suitable and simple compositional semantics so that the various models used to describe the behaviour of a complex system can be put together. Behaviour modelling attracts more attention as the research community understands that behaviour modelling concepts are different from programming concepts and can be used to create programming languages of the next generation.
