OWL-S has been the focus of a sizable amount of research effort, both
from the OWL-S Coalition, which codified the ontology, as well as the
researchers who have used OWL-S in their experimental work. Indeed, work
on OWL-S can be found both in industry and academia, and papers on or
using OWL-S are presented in virtually all conferences on the Web,
Semantic Web and Web services. This workshop aims at providing a place
where practitioners can exchange their experiences with OWL-S.
Furthermore, the workshop will provide a forum in which to discuss the
further evolution of OWL-S in such a way that users and communities with
specific interests can take charge in proposing changes to the ontology
that they believe will be helpful.

The topic of discussion will be centered around experiences in using
OWL-S and the challenges of using OWL-S. Specific attention will be
given to papers identifying aspects of Web services cannot be modeled
with OWL-S, with particular regard to the interaction with SAWSDL, and
on ways to extend the language to address these needs. Papers on
comparison and cross-fertilization with other approaches such as WSMO
will also be welcome.

Specifically, topics of interest at the workshop will include but not
limited to:

  • Novel applications of OWL-S
  • New algorithms for service discovery and composition
  • Models and mechanisms for monitoring execution of OWL-S web services
  • New types of grounding
  • Uses of OWL-S in novel environments, such as for mobile computing
and networked appliances
  • Relation to other Web services efforts
  • Formal aspects of OWL-S and its relationship to Description Logics
and OWL
  • Semantic Web Service Mediation

The workshop will be held in Innsbruck in conjunction with the 4th
European Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2007) on the 6th or 7th of June, 2007.

We invite papers that report on completed or current work related to the
topic of this workshop. Submissions are to be emailed in Postscript or
Adobe PDF format to Massimo Paolucci (paolucci@docomolab-euro.com), no
later than March 12, 2007. Papers should be formatted according to the
official formatting guidelines of the ESWC'06 main conference (LNCS).
Page limit is set to a maximum of 6 for short papers, and 14 for full
papers. At least one of the paper authors of the papers is expected to
participate in the workshop.
