In this paper we describe IRS-III which takes a semantic broker based approach to creating applications from Semantic Web Services by mediating between a service requester and one or more service providers. Business organisations can view Semantic Web Services as the basic mechanism for integrating data and processes across applications on the Web. This(More)
Establishing Web services as resources on the Web opens up highly productive but challenging new possibilities for service economies. In addition, lifting services to the semantic level enables more sophisticated means for automating the service-related management processes and the composition of arbitrary functionality into new services and businesses.

objects, characterized by a signature, comprised of universes, functions, and relations. The universe or domain is a set of data containing partial functions and predicates (attributes and relations) which encapsulate the universe. Transition rules, in ASMs, are local functions which update the abstract states, and can be expressed as follows: f(t1, t2,(More)
Digital signal processing and control (DSPC) tools allow application developers to assemble systems by connecting predefined components in signal–flow graphs and by hierarchically building new components via encapsulating sub–graphs. Run–time environments then dynamically schedule components for execution on some embedded processor, typically in a(More)
The establishment of Linked Data principles has ushered in a remarkable new era of widespread semantics-based interoperation. In particular, the use of RDF, SPARQL and HTTP allow a high degree of generic tool support and lightweight composition of data sources. This rosy picture, however, mainly applies to static data. When it comes to dynamics both(More)
Semantic Business Process Management (SBPM) has been proposed as an extension of BPM with Semantic Web and Semantic Web Services (SWS) technologies in order to increase and enhance the level of automation that can be achieved within the BPM life-cycle. In a nutshell, SBPM is based on the extensive and exhaustive conceptualization of the BPM domain so as to(More)
The idea of service orientation envisions dynamic detection and execution of suitable Web services for solving a particular request. Most realization approaches pay only little attention to the client side of such architectures. We therefore promote a goal-driven approach: a client merely specifies the objective to be achieved in terms of a goal, and the(More)
Software composition via workflow specifications has received a great deal of attention recently. One reason is the high degree of fit with the encapsulation of software modules in service-oriented fashion. In the Industry, existing workflow languages have been merged to form WS-BPEL, the Business Process Execution Language for Web Services. In the Research(More)
