The Semantic Web envisions a distributed environment with well-defined data that can be understood and used by machines. This machine-understandable knowledge allows intelligent agents to automatically take decisions and perform tasks on our behalf. In the past, different Semantic Web policy 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

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 allow agents to automatically perform advanced and powerful tasks, which can neither be addressed by existing Semantic Web policy languages nor by recent efforts towards reactivity on the Semantic Web.
