Two other references that are relevant to this thread:

Concurrent Execution Semantics for DAML-S with Subtypes, Anupriya 
Ankolekar, Frank Huch, Katia Sycara, The First International Semantic 
Web Conference (ISWC), Sardinia (Italy), June, 2002. (pdf)

Narayanan, S. and McIlraith, S., "Simulation, Verification and Automated 
Composition of Web Services", Proceedings of the Eleventh International 
World Wide Web Conference (WWW-11), Honolulu, Hawaii, May, 2002.

These are both available here:


(Note that a number of the papers in this publication archive, including 
these two, have been written by members of the OWL-S Coalition, but do 
not necessarily represent joint work of the entire coalition.)
