A Framework for Dynamic Web Services Composition
Recent advances in Web and information technologies with the increasing decentralization of organizational structures have resulted in massive amounts of information resources and domain-specific services in Traditional Chinese Medicine. The massive volume and diversity of information and services available have made it difficult to achieve seamless and interoperable e-Science for knowledge-intensive disciplines like TCM. Therefore, information integration and service coordination are two major challenges in e-Science for TCM. We still lack sophisticated approaches to integrate scientific data and services for TCM e-Science. We present a comprehensive approach to build dynamic and extendable e-Science applications for knowledge-intensive disciplines like TCM based on semantic and knowledge-based techniques. The semantic e-Science infrastructure for TCM supports large-scale database integration and service coordination in a virtual organization. We use domain ontologies to integrate TCM database resources and services in a semantic cyberspace and deliver a semantically superior experience including browsing, searching, querying and knowledge discovering to users. We have developed a collection of semantic-based toolkits to facilitate TCM scientists and researchers in information sharing and collaborative research. Semantic and knowledge-based techniques are suitable to knowledge-intensive disciplines like TCM. It’s possible to build on-demand e-Science system for TCM based on existing semantic and knowledge-based techniques.
Automated Support for Service Composition
This document is based on a review of requirements gathered from a number of different environments to identify the scope and potential requirements for this Semantic Web Services architecture. SWSI started in the autumn of based on common interest of the researchers involved. This document describes abstract protocols for interactions between clients and Semantic Web Services and proposes other support services that may be needed in some contexts to fulfill the basic requirements of the proposed architecture.
Our goal is that this architecture provides a foundation that will support a variety of semantically enabled service deployments in a variety of current and future distributed environments, especially those building on the World Wide Web. We anticipate that the architecture will also indicate requirements for Semantic Web service description languages which are being designed by our sister committee, the SWSI Language Committee.
Our approach to developing an architectural framework for Semantic Web Services is based on an identified set of roles and requirements for machine interpreted semantic descriptions in the deployment of Semantic Web Services to different distributed environments, addressed in our previously released Requirements Document.

Discovery of semantic Web services is a heavyweight task when the number of Web services or the complexity of ontologies increases. In this paper, we present a new logical discovery framework based on semantic description of the capability of Web services and user goals using F-logic. Our framework tackles the scalability problem and improves discovery performance by adding two prefiltering stages to the discovery engine. The first stage is based on ontology comparison of user request and Web service categories.
In the second stage, yet more Web services are eliminated based upon a decomposition and analysis of concept and instance attributes used in Web service capabilities and the requested capabilities of the client, resulting in a much smaller pool of Web services that need to be matched against the client request. Semantic Web has been a popular topic of research since its introduction by Berners-Lee et al.
Based on this idea, automation of many tasks on the Internet is facilitated through the addition of machine understandable semantic information to Web resources. For instance, automatic discovery of Web services based on their functionality or composition of Web services which cannot fulfil the user requests individually becomes possible [ 2 ].
Semantic Web Service Composition Through A Matchmaking Of Domain
Automated composition of Web services or the process of forming new value added Web services is one of the most promising challenges in the semantic Web service research area. Semantics is one of the key elements for the automated composition of Web services because such a process requires rich machine-understandable descriptions of services that can be shared.
Semantics enables Web service to describe their capabilities and processes, nevertheless there is still some work to be done. Indeed Web services described at functional level need a formal context to perform the automated composition of Web services. The suggested model i. The model supports a semantic context in order to find a correct, complete, consistent and optimal plan as a solution.

A Semantic Web Services Architecture
Representing the semantics of web services and utilising the described semantic knowledge to develop and use within intelligent applications is an active research domain. Automatic composition of web services and reconfiguration of composed web services are some of the likely functions the intelligent applications ought to be performing by exploiting the semantic descriptions of services. The current approaches such as OWL-S requires generating or writing a huge volume of XML or similar code even to represent some trivial semantics.
The semantics include inputs, outputs, preconditions and effects, however, the preconditions and effects are not rich enough to reason upon the activities that services are expected to perform in general. Further a standard language or approach to define the semantic description of web services does not exist. Until such a standard language or approach is devised for proper development of semantic descriptions, such approaches will remain ad hoc and essentially all the matchmaking and compositions tasks will remain at the syntactical level rather than at the semantical level.
The convergence of semantic Web with service oriented computing is manifested between a WSDL component and a concept in some semantic (domain) model. This makes any form of logic-based discovery and composition of SAWSDL service Further OWL-S matchmakers are, the hybrid service IO matchmaker.
Ontologies: Principles, methods and applications. Uschold , M. This paper is intended to serve as a comprehensive introduction to the emerging field concerned with the design and use of ontologies. We show how the development and implementation of an explicit account of a shared understanding i. After motivating their need, we clarify just what ontologies are and what purposes they serve.
We outline a methodology for developing and evaluating ontologies, first discussing informal techniques, concerning such issues as scoping, handling ambiguity, reaching agreement and producing definitions. We then consider the benefits of and describe, a more formal approach. We re-visit the scoping phase, and discuss the role of formal languages and techniques in the specification, implementation and evaluation of ontologies.
Finally, we review the state of the art and practice in this emerging field, considering various case studies, software tools for ontology development, key research issues and future prospects.

Semantic Web service composition through a Matchmaking of domain. Freddy Lécué, Alain Léger. France Telecom R&D, 4 rue du clos courtel,. F Cesson.
As the spread of web services, the composition of web services becomes a hot topic on both the academia and IT domains. The composition also depends on non-functional descriptions QoS. In this paper, we present an approach of web services composition based on both semantic description and QoS. The proposed approach builds a network of web services by matchmaking the semantic concepts in OWL-S, using the outputs-inputs similarity between services.
Those composed assemblies will be ranked by the QoS that provided by the consumer and the suitable one will be sent back to the consumer. This approach takes the advantages from Pellete DL Reasoner, depth-first and forward chaining algorithms.

The Call for Participation covered the background and goals of the workshop, and explained that attendance was limited and position papers were required. A total of 53 papers were accepted by the program committee and a subset was selected for presentation. In order to meet the workshop goals, in particular reviewing use cases and existing research efforts, finding key domain concepts and essential problems to address eventually solutions , the program was divided in 4 sessions: domain boundaries and definition, use cases, framework technologies, and concluding discussion.
The goal of the first session was to understand the challenges in Frameworks for Semantics in Web services. Semantics in Web services focus on how to describe and wrap conventional services that communicate in XML Payne. The needs of different kinds of users give rise to different sets of requirements. There is a need for simple abstractions for the “programmer on the street” Halpin , hiding ontological detail but providing support for integrating Web services into programming languages.
Similarly, end-users have their own requirements, to express their goals so they can find the services they need. The need for interoperable tools based on semantic frameworks means that the service ontology needs a clear and unambiguous formal foundation. While OWL is intended for capturing ontologies, there are a number of Web service issues for which it does not provide complete solutions, including descriptions of the “consequences of actions” McIlraith and “policy” Grosof.
There are many “simple and well-studied formalisms [that could be used] as a basis for Web services” Halpin that may address these issues. Such formalisms may be used in conjunction with OWL to provide a theoretical basis for further research in areas such as composition and verification of services descriptions.
Towards Semantic e-Science for Traditional Chinese Medicine
Within the numerous and heterogeneous web services offered through different sources, automatic web services composition is the most convenient method for building complex business processes that permit invocation of multiple existing atomic services. The current solutions in functional web services composition lack autonomous queries of semantic matches within the parameters of web services, which are necessary in the composition of large-scale related services.
In this paper, we propose a graph-based Semantic Web Services composition system consisting of two subsystems: management time and run time. The management-time subsystem is responsible for dependency graph preparation in which a dependency graph of related services is generated automatically according to the proposed semantic matchmaking rules. The proposed approach was applied to healthcare data integration in different health organizations and was evaluated according to two aspects: execution time measurement and correctness measurement.

Web services WS composition is a method used to combine existing WS from heterogeneous systems to build more complicated business processes that match with user requirements. WS composition also accommodates the development of systems capable of automatic execution of multiple individual WS simultaneously [ 1 ]. However, these technologies do not offer well-defined semantic and expressive capability for solving semantic service discrepancies that occur due to disagreement in the meaning, interpretation, or intended use of service information.
In most cases, this situation drives the challenge of creating an automated WS composition system that focuses on solving the problems of WS heterogeneities. These problems necessitate semantic matching of input and output parameters to combine multiple relevant services. Richer semantics for WS provide greater automation of selection, composition, and invocation of heterogeneous services.
