DAML-S: Semantic Markup for Web Services
TLDR
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
TLDR
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. Expand
Bringing Semantics to Web Services: The OWL-S Approach
TLDR
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
TLDR
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
Importing the Semantic Web in UDDI
TLDR
This work expands on previous work by showing how DAML-S Service Profiles, that describe service capabilities within DAML, can be mapped into UDDI records providing therefore a way to record semantic information within U DDI records, and shows how this encoded information can be used within the UDDi registry to perform semantic matching.

FALCON: Feedback Adaptive Loop for Content-Based Retrieval
TLDR
This research paper proposes a novel method that is designed to handle disjunctive queries within metric spaces, and supports it with an algorithm that shows how to exploit metric indexing structures that support range queries to accelerate the search without incurring false dismissals. Expand
Argumentation over ontology correspondences in MAS
TLDR
This work proposes an approach for supporting the creation and exchange of different arguments, that support or reject possible correspondences, and considers arguments and propositions that are specific to the matching task and are based on the ontology semantics. Expand
Approaches to Semantic Web Services: an Overview and Comparisons
TLDR
The state of the art of current enabling technologies for Semantic Web Services is surveyed, and the infrastructure of SemanticWeb Services is characterized along three orthogonal dimensions: activities, architecture and service ontology. Expand
Automated Negotiation Between Publishers And Consumers Of Grid Notifications
TLDR
An automated negotiation engine that identifies mutually acceptable terms is presented; its performance is studied; its application to a Grid notification service is discussed; and it is demonstrated how the negotiation engine enables users to control the Quality of Service levels they require. Expand
Methodologies and Software Engineering for Agent Systems
TLDR
It is argued that Grid applications very strongly suggest the use of agent-based computing, and key uses of agent technologies in Grids are reviewed: user agents, able to customize and personalise data; agent communication languages offering a generic and portable communication medium; and negotiation allowing multiple distributed entities to reach service level agreements.
