Web Service Modeling Ontology
TLDR
Along with introducing the main elements of WSMO, this paper provides a logical language for defining formal statements in WSMO together with some motivating examples from practical use cases which shall demonstrate the benefits of Semantic Web Services.
Ontologies - a silver bullet for knowledge management and electronic commerce
This second editionsystematically introduces the notion of ontologies to the non-expert reader and demonstrates in detail how to apply this conceptual framework for improved intranet retrieval of
The Web Service Modeling Framework WSMF
Enabling Semantic Web Services: The Web Service Modeling Ontology
TLDR
This book offers a thorough, practical introduction to one of the most promising approaches the Web Service Modeling Ontology (WSMO), from the fundamentals to applications in e-commerce, e-government and e-banking.
The Semantic Web: The Roles of XML and RDF
TLDR
It is argued that a further representation and inference layer is needed on top of the Web's current layers, and to establish such a layer, a general method for encoding ontology representation languages into RDF/RDF schema is proposed.
Semantic business process management: a vision towards using semantic Web services for business process management
TLDR
This work traces back the problem of mechanization of BPM to an ontological one, i.e. the lack of machine-accessible semantics, and argues that the modeling constructs of semantic Web services frameworks, especially WSMO, are a natural fit to creating such a representation.
The Web Service Modeling Language WSML: An Overview
TLDR
WSML distinguishes between conceptual and logical modeling in order to support users who are not familiar with formal logic, while not restricting the expressive power of the language for the expert user.
Ontology versioning on the Semantic Web
TLDR
Inspired by the work done in database schema versioning and program interface versioning, this paper will propose building blocks for the most important aspects of a versioning mechanism, i.e., ontology identification and change specification.
Ontobroker: Ontology Based Access to Distributed and Semi-Structured Information
TLDR
Ontobroker is developed which uses formal ontologies to extract, reason, and generate metadata in the WWW, and the generation of RDF descriptions enables the exploitation of the ontological information in RDF-based applications.
