Specifying semantic Web services requires designing the semantic description at a conceptual level to guarantee its correctness and avoid inconsistencies. We present a framework for designing and composing semantic Web services at the knowledge level in a language-independent manner. We base our framework on a stack of ontologies that explicitly describes(More)
Semantic Web Services (SWS) are Web Services (WS) whose description is semantically enhanced with markup languages (e.g., OWL-S). This semantic description will enable external agents and programs to discover, compose and invoke SWSs. However, as a previous step to the specification of SWSs in a language, it must be designed at a conceptual level to(More)
Ontologies implemented in RDF(S), DAML+OIL, and OWL should be evaluated from the point of view of knowledge representation before using them in Semantic Web applications. Several language-dependent ontology validation tools and ontology platforms, such as OilEd with FaCT, can be used in order to evaluate RDF(S), DAML+OIL and OWL ontologies. This paper(More)
Web Services are interfaces to a collection of operations that are network-accessible through standardized XML messaging, and whose features are described using standard XML-based languages. Semantic Web Services (SWS) describe semantically the internal structure and the functional/nonfunctional capabilities of the services, facilitating the design and(More)
This paper presents the application of a semantic grid architecture into a scenario for the product analysis of a representative Earth Observation Satellite Mission (EnviSat). This use case aims at demonstrating the benefits of a semantic grid approach to real world problems in terms of flexibility, reduction of SW running costs, maintainability,(More)
SOA4All will help to realize a world where billions of parties are exposing and consuming services via advanced Web technology. The outcome of the project will be a comprehensive framework and infrastructure that integrates four complimentary paradigm-shifting technical advances into a coherent and domain independent service delivery platform: Web(More)
The use of a Semantic Grid architecture can ease the deployment of complex applications, in which several organizations are involved and where resources of diverse nature (data and computing elements) are shared. This is the situation in the Space domain, with a strong demand of computational resources inscribed in an extensive and heterogeneous network of(More)
People in industrial societies carry more and more portable electronic devices (e.g., smartphone or console) with some kind of wireless connectivity support. Interaction with auto-discovered target devices present in the environment (e.g., the air conditioning of a hotel) is not so easy since devices may provide inaccessible user interfaces (e.g., in a(More)
The convergence of the Semantic Web and Grid technologies has resulted in the Semantic Grid. The great effort devoted in by the Semantic Web community to achieve the semantic markup of Web services (what we call Semantic Web Services) has yielded many markup technologies and initiatives, from which the Semantic Grid technology should benefit as, in recent(More)
