Semantic Web Services and Matchmaking

Semantic annotation of existing web services comprises a fundamental requirement for enabling more efficient and accurate search and discovery of services on the semantic web ecosystem. In order to efficiently deal with the growing presence of web services, more automated mechanisms are required, because manual semantic annotation is a long, tedious and error-prone process, based on subjective and monolithic knowledge. Research in this area includes the development of more efficient mechanisms for automatic semantic annotation of web services and their structural elements into appropriate ontological representation schemes, by the combination of various techniques, such as machine learning, lexicographic analysis, and graph matching.
