Howdy - I'm a Professor at the Univ of Maryland where I head up the 
Maryland Information and Network Dynamics Laboratory's Semantic Web 
actiivites (the MINDSWAP project).  Our group has a long association 
w/both semantic web (even before it was called that) and web 
services, and have been members of various SW and WS groups in the 
W3C.   MINDSWAP currently includes the chair of the Web Ont WG, and 
participants in the Web Sevices Description WG, the WS Choreography 
WG, the OWL-S group, and the SWSI group.   We're quite interested in 
the dynamic composition (choreography) of Web Services, and believe 
Semantics are an important aspect of making it work.  We also are 
involved with a group from Fujitsu Labs of America in demoing the use 
of semantics in composing Web Services.   Various and sundry about 
the group can be found on http://owl.mindswap.org -- a web site 
completely powered by RDF/OWL and supporting various services 
described in OWL-S.
