DAML-S: Semantic Markup for Web Services
The overall structure of the ontology, the service profile for advertising services, and the process model for the detailed description of the operation of services are described, which compare DAML-S with several industry efforts to define standards for characterizing services on the Web. Expand
Semantic Matching of Web Services Capabilities
This paper claims that location of web services should be based on the semantic match between a declarative description of the service being sought, and a description ofthe service being offered, and that this match is outside the representation capabilities of registries such as UDDI and languages such as WSDL.

Bringing Semantics to Web Services: The OWL-S Approach
This paper shows how to use OWL-S in conjunction with Web service standards, and explains and illustrates the value added by the semantics expressed in OWl-S. Expand
DAML-S: Web Service Description for the Semantic Web
DAML-S is presented, a DAML+OIL ontology for describing the properties and capabilities of Web Services, and three aspects of the ontology are described: the service profile, the process model, and the service grounding. Expand
A Roadmap of Agent Research and Development
This paper provides an overview of research and development activities in the field of autonomous agents and multi-agent systems. It aims to identify key concepts and applications, and to indicateExpand
Bringing Semantics to Web Services with OWL-S
OWL-S can be used to automate a variety of service-related activities involving service discovery, interoperation, and composition, and has led to the creation of many open-source tools for developing, reasoning about, and dynamically utilizing Web Services. Expand
Reaching Agreements Through Argumentation: A Logical Model and Implementation
A logical model of the mental states of the agents based on a representation of their beliefs, desires, intentions, and goals is presented and a general Automated Negotiation Agent is implemented, based on the logical model. Expand
Automated semantic web service discovery with OWLS-MX
Experimental results of measuring performance and scalability of different variants of OWLS-MX show that under certain constraints logic based only approaches to OWL-S service I/O matching can be significantly outperformed by hybrid ones. Expand
Automated discovery, interaction and composition of Semantic Web services
A vision for Semantic Web Services, which combine the growing Web services architecture and theSemantic Web, is introduced and DAML-S is proposed as a prototypical example of an ontology for describing SemanticWeb services. Expand
Larks: Dynamic Matchmaking Among Heterogeneous Software Agents in Cyberspace
A language called Larks for agent advertisements and requests is defined, and a flexible and efficient matchmaking process that uses Larks is presented that performs both syntactic and semantic matching, and in addition allows the specification of concepts via ITL, a concept language. Expand
