Automating Service Oriented Architectures by augmenting them with semantics will form the basis of the next generation of computing. Selection of service still is an important challenge, especially, when a set of services fulfilling user’s capabilities requirements have been discovered, among these services which one will be eventually invoked by user is(More)
Semantically enabled service-oriented architecture focused on principles of service orientation, semantic modeling, intelligent and automated integration defines grounds for a cutting-edge technology which enables new means to integration of services, more adaptive to changes in business requirements which occur over systems’ lifetime. We define the(More)
Research into Semantic Web Services is continuously producing new technologies. It is important that these technologies are made accessible to end users, as technologies are adopted based on the ease with which they can be applied. The level of tool support in Semantic Web Services is relatively low and existing tools are not centralized. This is due to the(More)
The time of engineers is a precious commodity. This is especially true for engineers of semantic descriptions, who need to be highly skilled in conceptual modeling, a skill which will be in high demand as Semantic Web technologies are adopted by industry. Within the software engineering community Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) like the Eclipse(More)

The Web service modeling ontology (WSMO) is a conceptual model for creating semantic descriptions that can be used to resolve interoperability issues between Web services. These descriptions can be used to dynamically discover, compose, mediate, select and invoke web services. Tool support for WSMO is in its infancy and there is a need for tools that(More)
In a semantic environment data is described by ontologies and heterogeneity problems have to be solved at the ontological level. This means that alignments between ontologies have to be created, most probably during design-time, and used in various run-time processes. Such alignments describe a set of mappings between the source and target ontologies, where(More)
This paper presents SEEMP, a marketplace to coordinate and integrate public and private employment services (ESs) around the EU Member States. The need for flexible collaboration in the marketplace gives rise to the issue of interoperability in both data exchange and share of services. SEEMP proposes a mixed approach that relies on the concepts of services(More)
The lack of any methodology for modeling Semantic Web Services means that developers wishing to utilize technologies like the Web Service Modeling Ontology, the Web Service Modeling Language, and the Web Service Execution Environment are lost in a Semantic wilderness with no road signs to guide them on their way. This paper presents an initial guide for(More)
Integrated e-government in the European Union requires good conceptual and technological foundations. Aligned with the European e-government strategy, we present how infrastructure for national as well as cross-country egovernment services can be facilitated by the Semantic Web Services concepts and technologies. With respect to this infrastructure, we(More)
