The paper reports innovative research on incomplete process support, which was carried out in the context of SwinDeW - a peer-to-peer based decentralised workflow approach. The practice of managing research projects through decentralised workflow is used to illustrate the causes of incomplete processes. The needs for incomplete process support are thus highlighted and a wide range of issues about extending SwinDeW for incomplete process support are identified and discussed. In addition, some initial solutions are also introduced.
