Introduction

This site contains an archive of papers and other resources that discuss OWL-S and related work. The archive is a continually evolving resource, and as such does not contain all the available resources. If a resource/paper/archive is missing, please let us know by emailing David Martin at martin -at- ai -dot- sri -dot- com.  In your message, please include a listing for each publication that is consistent in style with those below.

This is by no means complete, and represents only a sample of OWL-S (and DAML-S) relevant papers found to date.  If you want your paper added, we'll be very glad to hear from you!

OWL-S Coalition Papers

DAML-S related papers published by the OWL-S coalition as a whole can be found in the OWL-S Coalition Publications page. Many of the papers on this page also include OWL-S Coalition members as authors.

  • Matchmaking of web services based on the DAML-S service model
    Sharad Bansal and José M. Vidal - To Appear in AAMAS 2003

    DAML-S provides the means for a web service to advertise its functionality to potential users of the service. This brings to fore the issue of discovering an advertisement that best matches a request for a particular service a process referred to as matchmaking. The algorithms that have thus far been proposed for matchmaking are based on comparisons of the requested and offered inputs and outputs. In this project, we extend these algorithms by taking into account the detailed process description of the service, thus leading to more accurate matchmaking. That is, we present an algorithm that will allow users to find services based on their Service Model Description. The query language we introduce supports both positive and negative terms. The algorithm runs in worst time of O(cn ), where c is the number of process nodes in the advertisement and n is the number of outputs to be matched. We also show results of tests performed against a simple database.
