Abstract - Most of all software systems have to be changed after their initial deployment. This is not only because of changing knowledge and expectations about our domains and systems, but also because of the continuous change of the environment itself. While changes in the environment happen implicitly, we need to explicitly keep our technology in sync with the changing world around it. This is especially true for next generation mobile communication systems which we expect to be open to third-party service providers, allowing them to offer services on a variety of service platforms. Not all of these services to be offered will match with all of the platforms. Adjustments and extensions need to be made to offer a pleasant service experience. Research on dynamic service adaptation provides concepts and technologies needed to perform such changes late in a system's lifecycle, possibly on demand, at runtime, without disruption of service.
