Due to their different target applications business and scientific workflow systems provide different sets of features to their users. Significant amount of research is currently being done to employ the business workflow technology in the scientific domain. This usually means extending the workflow language and thus the modeling tool and execution engine. In this paper we aim to bring business and scientific workflows together in order to exploit the advantages of both. We explore the interplay between business and scientific workflows in the context of human interactions with the management of workflow execution. We present an approach and implementation based on BPEL and Pegasus and show that the approach can be beneficial to scientists.
